Getting ready for Easter.

This week will be spent cooking and getting ready for family on Sunday..We do have quite a house full and many laughs. When I was growing up, we usually went to my grandmother's home on my mother's side.
Food was always bought out and the table was full..Home made bread was a staple, as well as many other things my grandmother made. So, my Easter is a take off of my childhood.
I always try and keep things simple, so we can all sit and enjoy each other..Now I won't kid you, never do I bring out the china/silver to eat off of. It is paper plates/cups all the way..Don't want anyone wasting time with dishes. I want to enjoy every minute we have together. The kids bring all kinds of food and when we put everything together, it is a feast. When the girls were living home, I had them bring some of their friends..There were people from Bulgaria, India, Bangladesh, Cyprus, Japan and Canada, just to name a few, that have enjoyed our fun..When they headed back to their homes, they will always carry a little bit of our family with them..Share your happiness, it could help change the world.

Till next time, keep looking up.

What an interesting idea to have your daughters invite their friends. You have inspired me to arrange something for the Easter holiday with some of the exchange students in my school!

You have a lot of great ideas!! Easter is a time for rejoicing, and I can see you sure will be! Have fun!

Sounds like fun. We usually have the "annual vegetarian easter," but the people who usually come are all unavailable this year. I'm disappointed, but a little quiet time never hurt anyone!

The holidays always bring back that ting of wishing we lived closer to family :) Have a wonderful Easter!

Easter is such a fun holiday! Love your thoughts of using paper instead of fancy dinnerware...after all food tastes just as wondeful on paper plates! No dishes woohoo!
