IT’S GREAT FUN!   First picture is my mama.  Wasn’t she a cutie?  I wasn’t born yet, so I’m assuming that’s their first apartment after getting married. 

The picture to my left is our family car when I was growing up, and behind it is the house where I grew up.

“In Hawaii, Aloha Friday a day of rest. So we’re doin’ the same. On Fridays we’re taking it easy on posting. Therefore, our hostess is asking a simple question for you to answer; nothing that requires a lengthy response.If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link at the very friendly place of Islandlife808.com. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends and find new followers!

My question is:   Easter being this Sunday do you hold your own private Easter egg hunt for your kids, and are you doing anything special this year?

When my kids were little I always hid the eggs… ooops, I mean the Easter Bunny always hid the eggs in our frontroom.  Only thing is if the kids didn’t find them all and let’s say a week went by… oh my goodness, we sure found the egg then.  hahaha  We’re having turkey dinner at my house on Saturday so the kids can go by the in-laws on Sunday.  This way they don’t have to hop around all day long, and pick and choose who they’re going to eat by.  Plus I like it better when they stay all day instead of rushing off to go to the next house.

Wasn’t that fun?  ~hehe~  Have a Great Weekend Everyone, and THANKS for stopping by, and following me.   Oh!  Don’t forget about “MONDAY’S MUSIC MOVES ME”.    This Monday  is “FREEBIE” week.  As I said before every other week is a freebie week, the other weeks we have themes.  Hope you  ALL can make it. It’s tons of fun & don’t forget bring a friend!  Hell, bring lots of friends. I’d kind of like to break our record this week with people joining.  The highest we’ve had was 39 I believe.  So, come on it’s time to ROCK & ROLL!   Have a great weekend! 

Thanks for Subscribing to emails. Hope you stop by to comment, too.

    we go all out for Easter a meal with each side of the family and Easter egg hunts too!


    I’m not doing anything special, but I hope you enjoy the weekend 🙂


    LOL I think my boys are a little too old for Easter egg hunts. Plus it will be a bit difficult for me to hide them when they both live out of state lol.
    Eating with family and visiting family.
    Now 2 questions for you…how did Trish do? New Blog?


    I agree great car : )
    I am in love with that couch in the background. It would be considered super trendy now. : )


    Two years ago, we went to the mountains for Easter. Last year we eat out and spent time on the beach. We liked that so much that now it has become a tradition. So this year we will be eating out and spending the time on the beach.


    I think it’s so cool you have such amazing pictures from way back when! 🙂

    I always hide eggs in the living room for Princess Nagger to find – and let her know that the Easter Bunny left a note on how many there are, because she’s OCD like that and wants to make sure she finds them all. 😉 I’ll be recruiting the hubby to take her out for a drive tomorrow so I can put her Easter basket together (I forgot she’s off today, should have done it yesterday!) and I’ll be making a big ham dinner with all the side dishes on Sunday. 🙂

    Have a great weekend, my friend – and Happy Easter! 🙂

    Love the pic of your mom!! This is the first year that Alex will be old enough to hunt eggs so we are pretty excited this year!


    We are not doing anything special this weekend, but we did go to the annual Easter egg hunt at the park last weekend.
    Have a great weekend!


    We do nothing special since my kids are grown. We had that same tv when I was a kid 🙂

    Have a great Friday!


    Everything is so cool about those pictures! Yes..your mom is a total cutie, and I love that car!!!!

    And to answer your question, we do color eggs! My kids really enjoy doing that! 🙂


    We have our own hunt every year.


    well, broxtons first easter, we were with family…. (he was not even 2 months old) last year, we were on the road to disney and this year, we are doing nothing… i do want to start a tradition soon though


    Your mom was so pretty and gosh they don’t make the vehicles like that anymore eh 🙂

    I will do my own Easter egg hunt this year.

    The kids also have one tomorrow at church and D did one at his school on Thursday! Oy!

    Happy Easter!


    Since we are military and are usually away from family, we are not doing to much this year, plus we are in the middle of a big move to Japan. Growing up mom always did Easter Egg hunts and we had family meals. We will be cooking a meal and I will be baking some homemade bread.


    Look at those old TV, we used to have one of that before

    Passover is our holiday, so no hunt here. We may try to take the kids to the park (if it is nice) or to a movie Sunday.


    Oh goodness, look at your ma!! She looks like a pretty doll sitting there 🙂 My question though: Why were all woman from that age so petite and tiny!?

    We used to have Easter egg hunts when we were little, but now were haven’t had one in awhile-I’d TOTALLY still do it though xD

    Have a wonderful, safe, and happy Easter my CM!
