Its kind of amazing that this is Easter week! I am getting all the plans made for food - who is bringing what - with the family that will be here.
I'm also planning out my table decor. Last year, we did a long tablescape and we all loved it.
I want to do something similar to this again this year, but I'm going with blue and white napkins, so that whatever I do will be tied in with those colors.
We are going to have ham, green bean casserole, fresh fruit salad, potato salad, deviled eggs. Simple basic foods that we all like.
The kids will likely do an egg hunt. With just Kyle and Kamryn, and maybe Klaire, that won't take long. Maybe this year we'll do an adult egg hunt!
I will definitely be making some on plan candies for myself so I can avoid temptation.
I'm responsible for the decor at our church's breakfast Easter day as well, so I am pulling together those items, too.
I like to have it all done so that I can slow down and remember why we are celebrating - God's plan to redeem mankind. What a beautiful gift He's given us. It cost Him to save us, but it is a gift freely given.
What are your plans for Easter?
