    It's going to be here before we know it!!! I'm seeing Easter stuff on oh so many store shelves!

    What is everyone planning for this year?

    New crafts/home decor items you want to make or buy?

    Easter cards to make? Will you be hosting a meal or going to join one? What are you going to make?

    What are your Easter egg hunt plans if you do one? How are you filling your eggs?

    And speaking of eggs, if anyone finds a magic wand to make peeling hard boiled eggs easier could they swirl it my way? LOL

    How do you use up Easter leftovers? What Easter clearance items are you hoping to snag this year?

    Good grief, did I ask enough questions? I think I'm kind of excited for spring. :rolleyes:

    Easter is a laid back holiday for us. I do need to get more things for the kids baskets. My oldest and I will make a cheese cake and my youngest will help me make a cool mint pie.

    Easter baskets!!!! How could I forget the topic of Easter Baskets? I'm slipping! Thank you for the reminder!

    Do you know what kind of cheesecake you'll make this year? Or is it always the same one?

    AJ, you asked great questions. I need to think about the answers. It's been been busy here on the homefront that I haven't given it any thought. I think I'll put that on my list to do for next week.

    For Easter this year DH and I will be away on holidays. I have started to think about what I will do in the kids Easter bags. I bought hot choc mix a while ago while it was on sale so I have that. I think I will just buy some chocolate biscuits and a few other things to top it up.
    I have bought Easter cards and I will address those and post them from our holiday.
    We will not be having a big dinner this year due to being away.

    It will be just the 2 of us for Easter so we will being having brunch at the Sheraton. The house is all decorated as much as I'm going to do this year.
    It's a special day for us this year. We will be celebrating our 25 wedding anniversary. We were married on Easter Sunday. April 3 is our actual anniversary but we always celebrate twice. I'm still trying to figure out something special to munch on for Easter evening. I'm pretty sure I'll make cheese cake since that's what our wedding cake was.

    Everyone is out of the house today so I think it is a great opportunity to pull out the bags I use for Easter and fill them, I will then know if I need anything else or I am good.

    Packed the Easter bags and for the most part are OK. If I manage to pick up something else in the next few weeks I will add. They just look like they could use something extra.

    I still am not sure what we'll be doing for Easter. My in-laws usually host dinner on Saturday and then we go to the Easter Vigil. Last year my husband was asked to play at the Easter Sunday Mass. We went to dinner on Saturday and then we joined my husband at Mass on Easter Sunday. We are still waiting to hear from the family and music group what the plans are.

    I will have to find the Easter Eggs, buy some candy and fill them. Dh loves to hide the eggs but we always miss a few and find them a month or two later. LOL!
