Where Were You for Easter?

For the past few weeks, I have remained undecided about what to do and where to go for Easter Sunday. Since my Dad has undergone chemotherapy treatments to combat his cancer, his immune system and its ability to ward off sickness are almost nonexistent. This means that if he gets sick, he could die from it. Therefore , he cannot be around ANY sick people. Unfortunately, my sweeties have been passing around the flu as of late and its been positively wonderful with all the vomiting and you know--'what else' going on, as you might imagine. And even though everyone's cleared up, I wasn't sure if we're all still hosts to the virus/bug whatever. My dad said, "Come down." So we all jumped in the suburban after church and made the hour trip to my parents. I'm glad we went-- Easter dinner with all the fixin's, the egg hunt, and all the family. We had a great time with all the cousins running around the house, older folks conversing in the parlor, and the aroma of baked ham and sweet potatoes filling the air. After the egg hunt, our two year old snuck around and raided everyone's baskets gobbling up as much candy as she could. I thought she was gonna blow up! I wish my parents had been so neglectful when I was a kid!
Here's a few (a lot) pictures from the day...Enjoy!

Early Easter morning

Hi Wendy,

What a great Easter day you had full of many happy memories. I hosted Easter dinner for 31 family members. My home is very small but it never matters as long as we are together.
You have such a lovely family,
Enjoy your day,
