Easter

We started the day with baked french toast. The kids got Easter baskets and looked for eggs. One really good chocolate bunny and a book, music or movie from the bunny. I had Bones of Faery by Janni Lee Simmer in my basket. I saw it at the book store and it called me in. When I got back from the days festivities everyone watched a movie and I read - the entire book. I was hooked. It was really good.

I went to temple and then we were off to my parents for lunch. A few years back my parents started bugging my brother and I about who would have Thanksgiving dinner. This was in September. Hmm, turkey and dinner at 1 (our family gatherings are always at 1). Does it really matter. My mom was starting to loose it. My brother finally told her I have Thanksgiving, he has Christmas and she has Easter until death do us part. Two weeks ago mom called me at work frantic. I've been trying to get a hold of you. I thought something was wrong. No, she just wanted to say she was having Easter. My irreverent answer was, "no shit." She said that was basically what my sister-in-love said. I'm sure she was much nicer.

All that aside, the meal was really good. The visit was good. We didn't stay really long as the kids tend to get bored.
