Unfortunately this year we didn’t go to church for Ash Wednesday but we did give up meat on Fridays. This has always been the dreadful time for me since I don’t eat marine life. We’re talking no fish, shrimp, shark, oysters, clams, NOTHING! So my diet consist of Bread up until Easter lol just kidding. But really no marine life. I felt kinda of guilty about raising the kids on what I like so I decided to start small we had little man try fish sticks and he liked them! so fish sticks Fridays for us it is- of course I’ll be eating grilled cheese or toast ugh! But I do it because I care and because my religion is important to me.
My grandparents were very big on religion and altho I complained as a kid I get it now. But my grandparents didn’t just make us go to church and do all the religious stuff for Easter we always had a big family cookout. My grandma would buy all the grand kids new clothes and would rent a jumper -FUN!
But nobody does Easter like my hubby Easter is just another Christmas to him . They give gifts out Big gifts like video game consoles and stuff ….ya!
The other day I was at Michael’s craft store and It hit me Easter is just around the corner what are we getting the kids? What am I getting the hubby?… hummm what is he getting me?!?
I ended up getting little man this cool egg . It’s like a colored rubber egg I dunno it’s weird I don’t plan on ripping it open but they had one on display where they made it into a hatched egg with a baby chick inside- CUTE! We will be coloring ours for Easter.
They had such cute things in their dollar section. I already started getting things for the kids baskets.
