What do you do for Easter if anything? Any traditions or plans this year? Do you take pictures of the kids, got to church, have family over? What kind of things do you normally eat?

We go to church on Easter morning, and we all dress up. I bought dresses for the girls to wear and new Easter shoes! My mom used to always put us in Easter hats too when I was growing up, but I am not into hats, lol.

This year we are having family over again (our house has become the common gathering place) and we are having dinner. On the menu is ham, deviled eggs and rolls not sure what else yet, lol! We are also having an Easter Egg hunt in our backyard if the weather is ok.

I was thinking of taking some Easter/spring shots prior to the day this year too since last year I didn't get any good pictures of the girls in their dresses since we were so busy!

Easter morning we all go to church and in the evening we go to either SIL or MIL's house for dinner, I think it's SIL this year They live an hour away. We paint eggs usually on Holy Saturday, we'll see though, because DH's birthday is on Saturday before Easter this year and I'm not really sure what we're doing. But we usually paint the eggs the night before and eat them for breakfast Easter morning.

I am cooking Easter dinner for a few friends, I am making Ham, scalloped potatoes, honey carrots, and IDK what else. My kids will be the only ones here walking so I dont think we'll do an egg hunt.

We don't really do anything special. I just get the kids baskets full of stuff. When I was a kid we'd have turkey and invite family over.

We don't really do anything special either. I did buy my 3 girls easter stuff. SO's girls will be at their moms.
Then my mom said she will come over and cook dinner because I will be bedridden recovering from c-section. So we will see if that really happens.

We will do the Easter basket and "hide" some [plastic] eggs through the house. We also dye/color eggs (though we didn't last year and probably won't this year cuz Gio is still too small). These past couple years we've been going out to dinner because i'm so far away from everyone so we meet in the middle. Last year we did a Shrek breakfast (character meet and greet during breakfast) this year we'll be doing a Mickey Mouse (and chip & dale, goofy and donald) character dinner

I also got a picture of Gio with the Easter Bunny! I didn't plan on taking it that day or i would have dressed him in a different outfit, oh well

We usually wake up, and do easter baskets. Than we go to church in New Easter dress clothes. We usually dye eggs the night before. This year both families will be coming to our house for dinner. We will have an easter egg hunt for the little ones, a crawfish boil and for those of us who don't eat crawfish, I will also be serving a ham, deviled eggs, potato salad etc. Lauren- such a cute photo! We did bunny pics too, but Lydia wasn't such a fan of the bunny lol. I have it posted on fb, but need to post it here as well!

DH's aunt is having family over Sunday for brunch and an Easter egg hunt for the kids. I don't usually find out about who's doing what until maybe a week in advance! Last year on Easter I was very sick. Nasty stomach bug and I had a fever
