Easter....come and gone

Easter has always been my favorite holiday and this year was no different.  I love spring, new growth, tulips, colored eggs....really, I love it all.  I love all of the pomp and circumstance at church and, of course, I love the egg hunt(s).  One of my favorite memories is of my grandmother getting the latest bunnies that skate, skateboard, hop, dance, whatever.  Each of us (five cousins) got one every year and we would race them.  It sounds silly, but it was an impromptu tradition that stick in my memory.  Another favorite memory is the elaborately decorated table my mom and grandmother would set using one of their many sets of china. This year was in charge of the table.  It was small, but I think it turned out well.
This year, a new beginning of a different sort.  I am going to be an aunt, again.  My brother-in-law and sister-in-law are expecting their first little one.  Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!
