"HAPPY EASTAH!" as we say in Boston...and it truly was! It was one of my favorites ever actually....everything was just so relaxing and fun.
We started by coloring our eggs on Friday night...3 dozen to be exact...since it was my mom's actual birthday, her and my dad came up for some pizza AND OF COURSE to help us color eggs.
Then of course we had Papa's celebration on Saturday night.
Then Easter morning...the kids opened their baskets and laughed at what the Bunny gave them this year! This year, instead of all candy, the Bunny decided to give them each some of their favorite foods....so Kayla got a nice bottle of A1 Steak Sauce in her basket...along with a pint of tomatoes..then of course some candy and a very cute polo tee. Ally got a package of cheddar cheese blocks and a box of cheese its along with her candy and a funky Celtics tee and last but not least, Zack got a honkin' box of Bagel Bites and a 2lb. bag of Twizzlers! Of course, he also got other candy and a kickin' Kevin Garnett Celtics tee...so yes they made out like bandits per usual!
We then headed to 7:30 mass as a family and that was my favorite part of the day...just very special.
After mass, we headed over to Grammy and Papa's for breakfast and it was FANTASTIC! Grammy went all out...she made homemade hash with dropped eggs= YUM! She also made this great thing called "Wake-Up Casserole" which you can find on AllRecipes.com. It consists of eggs, hash browns, cheese and bacon- OUTSTANDING! We also enjoyed some fruit and sweet rolls and we pretty much rolled out the door when all was said and done. The girls had fun trying on Grammy's wigs...I am sure you will enjoy those shots!
Later, the kids headed out to see their Mom and Rob and I headed down to Stoneham to meet my parents, aunt, uncle and cousins at Felicia's. Another Italian restaurant, can we stand it? Great place and another great meal. After that, we all went over to my parents for dessert and ended up getting into a VERY spirited game of Scene It. By the end of the day..I was ready to collapse!!!!
It was a wonderful day :)
