Our Easter


Our Easter was sunny and breezy, a bit chilly in the morning then warmer in the afternoon.  It was appropriately spring-like!  (Of course, yesterday barely hit 50 degrees before disintegrating into sleet.  That's Kansas!)

Here are a few snapshots from our day.












The Easter Bunny filled the baskets (hello, Hello Kitty stuff!) and left a book to share.  We hunted eggs in the beautiful churchyard, then went inside for services.  We came home, I finished making dinner, and my grandma, sister, and niece joined us.  We hunted eggs in the backyard.  Then Mr. B came home from work.  (All the men worked Sunday - my husband, my daddy, my brother-in-law...)

And then I got very sleepy, and collapsed on the couch with a bag of Laffy Taffy to watch some NCAA Basketball.  I don't normally care about basketball, but I wanted to see who would be playing my alma mater next week - GO SHOX!

Winter weather has returned.  We're leaving our Egg Tree up for a while.  It's our "Spring Egg Tree" now.

I am linking up to the Easter Parade Blog Party, courtesy of the wonderful Audrey Eclectic.  Better late than never!  If you're still in an Eastery mood, be sure and check out the other blog posts!  xxxooo

  1. Hi, hello from the GB and I'm visiting your blog via the Easter Parade :)
    Lovely photos, pleasure to look at and looks like all yours have had some good fun.I'm truly jealous of the weather - so icy cold over here.
    the foods on the table look good too - what do American eat mostly at Easter? Are there any set dishes? :)

    1. It's cold here now! There's even a chance of snow today, although I'll bet freezing rain (like yesterday!) is more likely. I think ham is actually the most popular Easter dish here. That's what we ate when I was growing up. We had potato-crusted cod, though. I'm a vegetarian, and we knew there was a possibility my husband would be called into work. (He's a freight conductor for the railroad.) The fish were actually from a frozen package, and easy for me to fix. Just had to follow the directions! I made a homemade Swiss chard quiche, though, and some broccolini with lemon butter, roasted baby potatoes, and homemade drop biscuits. It was a light but pretty dinner.

    1. Thanks! I just posted the details in my previous reply, but it was pretty tasty! Since Mr. B managed to make it home soon after we finished eating, there weren't really any leftovers. That's a sign of a good meal, I think. :o)

    1. You can always tell an Episcopal church, right? ;o) It was a lovely happy service. It's cold and rainy now. I loved seeing your Hello Kitty on Instagram that morning! Great minds... But she's so pastel and happy and somehow Eastery! And thanks for having me. xxxooo

    1. Thank you! I have an Orthodox friend who wished us all a "Happy Wester." Made us laugh! May would have probably brought nicer weather. Of course, May can also bring tornados... Ah, Kansas!

      I hope you and yours are doing well! :o)

  6. Adorable baskets, dresses, and a lovely spring table! I love the idea of leaving your Easter Tree up as a "Spring Tree" - I can never bear to take mine down right away either. I figure I leave my Christmas things up through Epiphany, so I might as well leave my Easter things out until Pentecost! :)

    1. I wear this hat every year. I wear this dress every other year or so. I need more dresses. :( My dad loves to buy the girls their Easter dresses. He always gets them more than one, so they have options. It's so funny! xxxooo
