Easter 2020

Well, it certainly was an Easter like no other.  It's funny because every year we either go to Paul's parents' house or one of my relatives' homes, and I always think that one of these years it would be nice to just stay home and be have Easter just the 4 of us.  Well, this year I got my wish.  It ended up being a great day, but I miss having other family around.

The day started off with my normal Sunday routine of relaxing on the couch with a cup of coffee and watching Flea Market Flip.  I did some Bible reading, took a shower, then it was time for online church.  The girls even watched with us for a bit but then they got bored and disappeared.  I thought we'd have to fight them to get them to watch at all though so I was ok with that.

After church we had a nice brunch complete with mimosas, then we hid eggs for the girls.  After the egg hunt we went on a beautiful walk (everyone except Olivia) on a trail with a cool bridge that for some weird reason I have never done before in the 12+ years we've lived here.  It was so nice, and the weather today was beautiful which it hardly ever is on Easter.

No fancy Easter dresses anymore (Olivia is wearing a "comfy", which is like a big oversized sweatshirt/blanket combo thingie

When we got back from that it was time to start dinner.  Olivia made a green bean casserole, except I couldn't find French fried onions at the store so we improvised with plain bread crumbs on top.  I made scalloped potatoes and ham with a maple brown sugar glaze.  It was delicious.

Cross at my brothers' potato farm.  He is risen!
