We had a very laid back, low key celebration at the Leifheit household. My aunt and uncle came over and we went to a late church service, where we had a chance to watch Alison Krauss sing some hymns (my parents go to the same church as she does, apparently!). We came back to sit on the porch and talk for a few hours before an early supper of ham, Neil's brioche, my dad's potatoes au gratin with white cheddar, and asparagus.. and blueberry cheesecake for dessert. And in the evening, more sitting around, more wine, more talking. More Cadbury egg eating. We had intentions of watching The Fantastic Mr. Fox (Neil and I made an Ash tube sock mask for Bloom last week), but it just never happened. It was perfect.

I love holidays where nothing is planned and everyone is relaxed. I really missed my sisters, though. Fortunately, I'll be with them next year for Easter.. maybe we can dye eggs together and write obscene things on them with the invisible crayon! It's our favorite sisterly Easter tradition, and it's one we'll probably never grow out of.

That's all for tonight. Time for some buttonhole sewing, package packing, and Mass Effect playing.
