I tried not to eat too much at lunch because I knew we were going to have another get-together with my parents, sisters, and all the kids. My sisters and my mom are good cooks, and I knew there would be lots of good food.
We had Honey Baked Ham and Honey Baked Turkey, and so many delicious sides. Crystal makes THE BEST mashed potatoes, so she brought those. Suz makes THE BEST mac and cheese, so she brought that. We had several other things, too.

Egg hunting is a tradition that I just can't let go of. My parents' oldest grandchild is Ross. He's 23. Their youngest is Eli. He's almost 8. Since I have a hard time letting go of traditions that I love, they still hunt eggs. Even Ross. BUT we do it at nighttime. They use flashlights. I think they had a lot of fun. We had sooo many eggs, but I went outside this afternoon and didn't find a single one that they missed.
You can tell from the picture above that it was really dark by the time we got the eggs all hid. We had two prize eggs. The first place had $10 and the second place had $5. Instead of using traditional gold and silver, we put the money in camouflage eggs. When you're dealing with kids this old, you've gotta be tricky. In years past, they would skip over other eggs and look only for the prize ones. We showed them.

I was exhausted when we finally got in bed, but I went to sleep with a big smile in my heart. It was a perfectly lovely Easter Sunday in every way.
Till next time when I'll tell you all about our garden that my sweet Jeff is working on, LLL.
