May the spirit of hope that Easter brings,
Help you find contentment in little things,
and restore your faith in the Lord above,
Who gave His life for the ones He loves.
It seems as though, at least at our house, Easter is almost as busy as Christmas! We are constantly running from here to there – with egg hunts to attend, eggs to dye, and traditions to make. Lots of cooking and baking and sweet treats to eat- and the Easter baskets!! Have you seen some of the Easter baskets the Easter Bunny is bringing these days? Good grief! But, I love it all. I know these moments will be gone way too soon, so I try to cram every last bit of fun into the holidays that I can.
On Easter Sunday, most of our family and several of our friends come to our house for Easter dinner. We have the traditional ham with all the fixins. One of my cousins is even bringing dressing this year. We’ve never had that before on Easter, but there’s a first time for everything! While we’re on the subject, there is a right way and a wrong way to make dressing- but I digress. I’ll save that discussion for the Thanksgiving holidays. I wonder if my blogging buddy, Mark Lee, over on the blog Sunday Dinner, would agree with me? Note to self to discuss this with him. Anyhow……

What side does the napkin go on, etc. Well, if you have people “Coming Home” for dinner and you’d like to set a
traditional table, continue reading.
