What comes to your mind when you think of Easter? Well, I have a lot of memories of Easter with family members when I was a young child. I have even more memories of Easter with Gracie. I always try to incorporate the Skimahorn’s (my maiden name- please don’t make fun of me) family traditions into our family. I’ll talk just a little bit about our Easter traditions in this post and YOU will have a chance to win an Easter Family Picnic Set. Hopefully, you can include this into your future Easter traditions!
Before I was 14, we always went to Church with my Grandma on Easter. We had a huge family dinner and then we would hunt Easter eggs. As we found them, we would end up crushing them, cracking them. We would steal them out of cousins buckets. It was kind of pitiful but we had a BLAST. We always hunted Easter eggs at our own home too. It didn’t get as violent or aggressive at home. One thing I do remember is that a lot of time in Arkansas, it would rain on Easter. Therefore we would hide the eggs inside the house. Do you know what would happen? We would forget about an egg or two and things would start to smell in a few days. Yuck~
When I married Gracie’s Dad, for the longest time we didn’t have children. It was eight years before Gracie came along. When she did, I was so extremely thrilled. There was no longer the huge family to hunt Easter eggs with, but we always did an awesome egg hunt at the house. Ours did not compare to the wonderful egg hunt that our Church put together for the community for years, so Gracie always attended our Church hunts.
I would love to know how you and your family celebrate Easter. Do you have any special traditions? Do one of your kids freak out at the large Easter bunny for the picture? Let us know all about it!
