Our Minimal Easter

I have to admit our Easter was rather subdued this year. I just never got around to planning anything that extensive. In face Sophie was the one who planned our Easter morning Scavenger Hunt this time. I only provided some eggs to boil and dye the day before and some bubbles and candy for the "prize" at the end of the scavenger hunt that morning. 

 Sophie spent some time the day before Easter coming up with scriptures that she could use as clues to send the kids around the house gathering clues until they came finally to the end and the basket of prizes. It turned out really nice and the only problem was that Molly really wanted to find eggs but was never quick enough to get the clue before one of her brothers.

 Part of the issue was that for the past two weeks I have been suffering with allergies and have had a headache, stuffy nose, and sore throat. I didn't want to do much of anything and planning something big just wasn't going to happen. I did make three pies to take to Grandma's house for Easter Dinner.  Two chocolate pudding pies with graham cracker  crusts (way easier that the usual pastry) and then a Lemon Meringue pie (because that is what Ian wanted and lemon just sounded good!)
