As the kids get older, each year seems to be more fun than the last. After changing to a Paleo diet lifestyle last year, we decided on no candy, but you never would have known. The kids got fruit leathers and new helmets for their tricycles, and did not feel deprived of anything, as I feared. Josh and I cuddled on the couch and read through the end of the book of Matthew, and later they were so excited to decorate the eggs themselves (and equally upset when we realized I undercooked the eggs. Luckily, my amazing fans on facebook helped me salvage them for a hunt). By the time the hunt came in the evening, we were all pretty tired!
Remind me to thank my Mom and Dad for the years of doing all these festivities and cooking a feast for family!
