Every year, the night before Easter we invite friends and families over to our house for a pre Easter dinner of sorts. I don’t know when this became a tradition of ours, but it did and we wouldn’t trade it for the world. Lots of eggs are hidden in the yard for hunting, only now the eggs are filled with coins, cash and candy.  We usually orchestrate an egg toss or other crazy Easter games, and always the combination of delicious food and fun friends.  This year, many of us had given up things for Lent and agreed the evening would be the perfect time to enjoy the contraband.  Shall we say, it had been a long 40 days…

The adults stayed late around the table, discussing our different church traditions, Easter celebrations, summer plans…and, of course our kids, who at this point were chasing each other outside with flashlights.

Sadly, this is the only photo I have….but, I think it’s a keeper!
