happy easters!

Monday, April 25

Easter has always been a big deal at my house. See, we have this tradition where my family and I would wake up early early early {don't ask me HOW my parents did it when we were teenagers} before the sun came up, drive to the tallest hill we could find and watch the sunrise while we ate doughnuts and hot chocolate and read the Easter story.
It was always one of my favorites and since my momma and sissy were in town this weekend, we got to get up early and eat Easter doughnuts with husband for the very first time. It was the perfect way to start the day. 
I hope my kiddies are morning people. 
Also, we had Easter lunch at my grandmas, and drove alllllll the way home with the windows down. And then we went on a walk after dinner.
And then we sat on the couch and ate jelly beans.
Rather ... are sitting on the couch and eating jelly beans ...

Hope you had a happy Easter :)
Can't wait to tell you about the party!

What a great tradition!! It's really cute that you plan to continue the tradition with your own children some day. Some day when they are adults they will look back fondly on those memories, just like you are now!

Teresa said...

Your children will be morning people if you tell them they are morning people. Momma's always right. :) XOXOX

That tradition is beautiful! When I was little my family and I used to go to a sunrise service at the top of a huge hill in our city. Haven't done that in a while though. Sounds like such a special Easter!

That is SUCH a sweet tradition Sydney! Family traditions are seriously the best. My parents always got up early and hid eggs all around the house for my brother and I to find when we were little kids. Then we would all get dressed up and go to church.

Funny though that you hope your kids will be morning people, when I pray that mine won't!!

That sounds like such a fun way to spend Easter. Too bad my husband would probably NEVER wake up that early to climb a hill. hehe! We can always try though! And YAY for driving with open windows, it was finally hot enough to do that yesterday here too. :)

kristin said...

I love when families make up their own traditions! Especially when they are of the whimsical kind. Will have to brainstorm for some unique easter traditions for next year!

What a random, but lovely tradition you and your family have. It's so special you can share that with your husband, and one day your children. Happy easter to you too!

Mac said...

I love, Love, LOVE your blog!! It is wonderful! Thanks for sharing your day to day!

Rachel Evon said...

good idea! i may steal parts (or all, don't judge) of this idea someday. also i think donuts may taste better in the early morning hours. don't you agree? maybe it's the early morning seminary thing inside each of us.

Well isn't that a cool Easter tradition!!! Our family launches our colored eggs in water balloon launchers... but we might just have to start a new one next year!

christine donee said...

What a lovely tradition. Maybe I'll steal it. If that's ok.

What a great tradition! Even if your kids aren't morning people, I'm sure they can manage to get up for this day every year.

Those roses are really pretty. The color is perfect.

Your Easter sounds a lot like how mine did when I lived closer to family. I always remember eating licorice jelly beans at my grandmas haha.
