Easter is almost here, and I feel like I have dropped the ball this year.
Charlie used to love helping me get ready for Easter. I know this is supposed to happen, and that twelve year old boys aren't generally enthusisastic about dying eggs. But I bet if it was an app available on his Ipod he would do it!
On Sunday we will talk about the Easter story over breakfast (Charlie has requested pancakes, I am thinking I can pull off egg shapes). I will make a ham for dinner, and we will wish we were in Bemidji, celebrating Easter mass with Mike's parents, and having an egg hunt with his cousins at my parent's house. Only Heather will be there this year, so they are going out for brunch. I don't think my mother has ever not cooked an Easter dinner, it will be a big change for her! And my dad will insist on a ham sometime this week anyway, just for the leftovers.
Even though the days are long past when I can get him to wear bib overalls, and pose for me in bunny ears, I will always have these photos to remember what it was like.
Happy Easter greetings to one and all!
