Thanks for the Memories

I don't know about you, but holidays always seem to fly by in our home. There's so much preparation, and never enough time to enjoy everything or everyone.

I didn't get to put the Easter decorations up until this week, and sadly I never even had the time to bring the container that held the decorations back to the basement. That's right, it's still in the dining room. I guess that will make it easier when it's time to take the decorations down.

Easter was spent at my parents, and despite having a very nice day, it was quite a whirlwind. The kids participated in their annual egg hunt run by Mom Mom and Pop Pop. I am truly grateful to have my parents play such a special role in my children's lives. When I was their age, the egg hunt was run by my aunt and grandparents on my father's side. The memories they made for us are still part of conversation today. I can only hope my own children will see how lucky they are to be surrounded by people who love them.

As for the rest of the day, relatives stopped by, some stayed, others had to make it home to cook for more relatives. It was a day filled with obligations, fun, love and memories.

I'm sure many of you that read this blog can attest that your day closely mirrored mine. But let's face it, would we have it any other way?
