Our Homemade Easter

We had a wonderful Easter this year.  There's something very special about celebrating holidays at my parents' house, the same house I grew up in.  After hosting 2010's Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners at our house, it was so great to get back to the place of my childhood again, complete with a delicious ham, homemade scalloped potatoes and mac n' cheese and special homemade deserts.

The Easter bunny came...

Nathan's first Easter egg hunt was a blast...

My knitted bunny got a lukewarm reception...hoping he'll like him more after the bunny spends the night with the other favorites in Nathan's crib.

Nathan's spring cardigan made its debut, although it was hard to get a decent photo—he rarely sits still.  The bad news is it reached 80 degrees outside, so he only got to wear it for a few minutes.  Thankfully, my parents had their air conditioning on.

Dinner was delicious and desert was both tasty and pretty...

You can see that I get my decorating sensibilities from my mom.  Those are pastel bunny salt and pepper shakers.

The conversation was lively, particularly as it applied to money and politics...

I laugh aloud every time I see Nathan's little head poking from beneath the table in this photo.

The remote control even had a dip in my husband's coffee, courtesy of Nathan.

My mom is just as awesome a grandma as my grandma was to me, if not awesomer.

It was a special time spent with my special family, and I loved every minute of it.  I hope your Easter was just as special to you.
