Easter with our family

Still doing some catch up from last week and the weekend. What a pain trying to get all four kids looking at the camera LOL
You can see there was a successful egg hunt.
Gahhhh lovely picture of me (not) but then again I is the main subject LOL
Everyone ready to eat
Some random pics...grson I with his ducky whistle, son D doing the meat carving honors, What was supposed to be a bunny but everyone decided it was too much like a mouse (LOL) and youngest son A ready to dig in.

With all the family traditions and "rules" it's great to see them move to the next generation. I have made Bunny Rolls for Easter since DH and I had our first Easter together in 1977. I found the recipe in a cookbook and how to make them into a twisted bunny shape and except for a few years they have appeared on our Easter table for dinner. The kids expect them and now we can pass that down to our grand children. DD B called me and told me that she was thinking about Easter dinner and was looking forward to having ham, funeral potatoes and Bunny Rolls at Mom and Dad's when she remembered that THIS year she was NOT coming home for dinner but was going to have to prepare them on her own! LOL Good thing she got a breadmachine to make the dough as I am not sure she would want to take the time to make it without. LOL

The other passing down thing is having my oldest DS carve the ham and turkey breast. I think he was pleased to be given that task sort of proving that he indeed was grown up after 31 years.

Looks like you had a great Easter. We had my friend Ricci and her husband over and they had never had funeral potatoes. We could not even imagine that they didn't know what they were. Welcome to Utah we announced!

Looks like you all had a good time. I like that you put my story in there too. And we too enjoyed our bunny rolls. I think that is something we will have to do forever. Love the pictures. It is good to see everyone.

It is a bittersweet time when you can pass the torch along to your children for all of the old tradtions. But of course when mom is around they still expect you to do it for them! Thanks for sharing! Glad you all had a good time!
