Our Easter celebrations this year were pretty neat. Jessica had an egg hunt and picnic at her school the Thursday before Easter. Then she and her Daddy dyed eggs Saturday night. Sunday morning, she checked out her Easter basket before we headed outside for her to hunt for eggs. Last year, it took her a little bit to understand the concept. This year she had no problem and had a blast finding all the eggs and then coming inside to open them all. Afterward, we headed to the late Easter service at our church. Next year, I think we might do the egg hunt after an earlier service since the grass was a little wet from dew at the time we did it. We took a few family photos in the front yard once we got home from church before eating leftovers. That night we had a brisket that I baked most of the afternoon. I used Scott’s Beef Brisket recipe out of one of my Taste of Home cookbooks. I substituted Dr. Pepper for Cola, since that is what I had and it was quite tasty and very tender.
I had hoped to scrap more of the photos from all the above mentioned events before blogging about Easter 2012, but alas I’ve only had time to do one layout and I’m not sure when I’ll get around to the rest, so here it is. Yes, Jessica is wearing the same dress she wore for Easter last year (then it was humongous, now it is a little on the short side). No, James and I did not plan to both wear blue.
Have an awesome day!
