Sweet Easter Memories 2011

One of the best things about being a Grandmother of five beautiful  grandchildren is the freedom to indulge. Treats, hugs, smooches, giggle, and lots of fun.  Because at Grandma’s house we break the rules.  Candy is often eaten before dinner, bath time is more about bubbles and swimming than getting clean, staying up past bedtime is encouraged and dancing until your legs are weak happens frequently.

Being a Grandma rocks!

Easter memory making began with a big roasted chicken dinner.

Don’t you love that bright tablecloth! giggle. It’s vinyl so easy clean up!





then opening of the Easter baskets . This year they were Easter pails.






Then the finale! the egg hunt!!



I hope your Easter celebration was as fun as ours.

  1. Hi thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind comments! Your Easter looked like a lot of fun and those Eggs are just gorgeous!! Our Easter was a lot of fun…but sadly my “big boys” are too old for Easter egg hunts but not quite at the grandmother stage yet either, so neither here nor there…sooo miss having a little one to do these things with though!! Thanks for sharing your special day with us!

  2. You’re a grandmother of five? You sound so young.

  3. Katherine, we had a great Easter weekend, too! We went to our sunrise service lakeside, and it was so special! Then we had a delicious ham lunch, and then we went boating!

    • I am so jealous, I love a sunrise service and by the water would be extra special. Thank you so much for sharing your happy day with me. hugs

  4. Sounds like a perfect Easter! Those eggs in that last photo are gorgeous!

  5. i think i’d rather skip being a mom and head straight to being a grandma! it just seems like a lot more fun! :)

  6. What a great blessing you have been given.

  7. Grandchildren are such a blessing! Those eggs are too gorgeous to touch the ground. (you should do them in wood so they will last FOREVER)

  8. Love those Easter pails!! Happy you had a beautiful time…..it looks lovely!

  9. I love your grandma comments! You have lucky grand kids and it sounds like you have a lovely day.

  12. Katherine, it sounds like you’re a wonderful grandmother and everyone has fun at your house. My father’s mother was just like you and you’ve brought back such great memories for me of all of the fun we had at her house.

    Thank you for stopping by my kitchen and following along. It is my pleasure to meet you and I hope to get to know you better. I saw some Greek potatoes in your last post that looked fantastic, so I’m off to check them out now.

  13. Looks like so much fun, and totally made me miss my family back in Canada :( I also wanted to thank you for becoming a follower of My Life As A Foreigner. Gaining new readers means so much to me, and inspires me to keep writing! I am off to check out your book list now…can’t wait.
