I have so many wonderful memories of Easter when I was a child. I don't remember if we did all of these every year but I'm sure there were years we did.
We would go to church on Easter Sunday, sometimes we went to Sunday School and then went home. When I was a small child we would go to Mama Kelley's house (my father's mother). We would have a Huge lunch ham, beans, corn, bread etc. The three older kids would hide the eggs and the four younger kids would hunt. I was one of the four younger kids.It was always so much fun!
We would go home and spend some time with my Granny and Pa Pa (my mother's parents). They lived next door. I think my Great Grandmother and Great Aunt Christian always came over on Easter Sunday afternoon. They always brought me and my brother a chocolate Easter Bunny. Since it would be just the two of us, my Mom or Dad would hide the eggs and we would hunt. I don't remember ever going to a big Easter Egg Hunt at church, maybe they didn't have them.
Grandma and Aunt Christian came over most Sunday afternoon's when the weather was nice.
I remember looking for them to come. Finally we would see Aunt Christian's Plymouth coming up the road. It seemed to take forever for it to get to the house. Mostly because Aunt Christian always drove SLOW! She never got in a hurry doing anything. I would always hate it when my brother would tease me and say I was as slow as Aunt Christian. I realized after I was grown there is nothing wrong with taking your time and trying to do a good job. I do try not to drive like her though, you at least have to do the speed limit now a days or get Run Over!
