Happy Easter!


Today marks the end of our decorating season, that started with Halloween. I know, I COULD decorate for the 4th of July, but that's always seemed like an outdoor holiday to me. So we settle for hanging out our flag on July 4th.

The pictures are of art projects Z did in kindergarten. The top pic is Z's "Elegant Egg" hanging from our kitchen ceiling. Z actually made this egg in the fall. His class studied a letter of the alphabet every week and made an art project that started with that letter. I can still remember how proud he was of his beautiful, "Elegant Egg".

The bottom pic is a bunny made from 2 eggs. One of the eggs is cut in half to make the ears. As always, my kid's artwork is my favorite decoration.

As usual, we had my parents over for brunch this morning. I served the traditional egg bake, Danish coffee cake, and Easter eggs that Z and L dyed last night.

Z got season 1 of RobotChicken on DVD, from the Easter bunny. He and L are currently laughing themselves sick in the living room.

We'll be having Easter dinner at my parent's house. This year we're having prime rib. My Dad makes the world's greatest prime rib! I'm so grateful that my whole family is healthy and happy for another holiday.

Easter will always be the holiday of eternal love to me.

GWB, What is Dyngus Day?

Tshsmom, love the art work! Dinner sounds yummy. Hope you had a lovely Easter with your family. My family spent the day at the beach, then we came home to have a nice roast for dinner. :-)

Dyngus day is always the day after easter. It celebrates the Christianizing of Poland in 966 a.d.
In certain places with large Polish populations, it is a huge deal. The best celebrations are in South Bend and Buffalo. Lots of kielbasa, cabbage, boiled eggs and beer.

It is also considred the start of the political campaign season, so LOTS of pols show up and try to be just a regular guy or gal for a day.

I watched the Smurf version of "Se7en" online last night. That settles it - I have to get Robot Chicken. I blame Sesame Street and Pinwheel for my short atten...

Sorry I missed this post. Traveling throws everything off.

It sounds like you had a wonderful family day. That's so cool that you keep the old handmade decorations. They're really the best.
