Just a quick reminder that Easter is Sunday March 31st 2024.

Now may be a good time to stock up on things for Easter baskets. I recently got hot chocolate and latte mix satchets that were on sale.
I will put them away with some marshmallows and ginger biscuits as part of DH Easter gift.

And for those who celebrate Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's day, grab extra red and green solo cups, plates, paper napkins, red and green candies, candles, etc. when they go on clearance. Christmas M&Ms can be separated into red (Valentine's Day) and green (St. Patrick's Day) and used in place of chocolate chips in baking.

Lori, what a great idea, I did not even consider this.

I picked up a few things today for Easter. Easter is at the end of next month and I think it will sneak up on us.
Got DD and DSIL biscuits, chocolate and marshmellows along with toasting forks and a hot choc mix. They can make s'mores one night over the cooler months.
Got the boys microwave puddings to go in their baskets, need a few more things just yet.

Bought a small ceramic rabbit to add to my decor. Bought chocolate chickens for the grandkids at costco the other day. Have one more gift to order. Now to decide.. we usually had Easter outside at my parents' about 45-50 people but mom can't do that anymore and she get angry if too many people. maybe I should do it here?
But we live 3 hours away so it will be only immediate family not a big thing like at my parents' house

Easter is not a biggie for me. If we are in NY we often go to the friends we spend Christmas with.

This year I expect we will be on the road heading north. Either we will go out to eat or I will make lamb chops because DH doesn't like ham. Of course he doesn't like lamb either.....

I do have two bunnies so I might have to find them new clothes.

We will have Easter at home again. I have a piece of Christmas ham in the earmarked for Easter dinner. Plenty of cookies in the freezer from Christmas and a pan of baklava for dessert. Decorating today, not a lot, just enough so the house looks homey.
