When I think of Easter, I think of two things - lamb cake and Easter baskets.
My mom has the neatest old lamb cake mold that always comes out at Easter. It is one of my favorite things, and I always love when she makes it. I just think it is so darn cute, not to mention delicious. She always really does it up, with the 'grass' frosting, eyes and nose and even a little bow for the neck. Last year there was a little mishap with the cake and it turned into a 'bunny' cake instead of a lamb, but it was still super cute and made for a really good story.
Not only does my mom make a lamb cake at Easter, she also puts together awesome Easter baskets for us all. Her and my dad hide them around the house for us to find. So like an egg hunt, but for baskets. Even the years I am unable to make it home for Easter, I will get a basket in the mail. I hope I never get too old for Easter baskets! (I say basket, but anymore they are bags/boxes, but I still think of them as Easter baskets.)
All this Easter talk has me reminiscing about last Easter. My parents have been going with my grandma to church on Easter morning and since I was in town, I went with them, too. What neither my parents nor my grandma knew, was that my brother, sister in law and Jack would be joining us there as a surprise. Not only that, but my cousin who now lives in Arizona was in town, too, so all the grandkids were around for Easter last year. It was really special, since it had been awhile since we were all able to be together, and I know it is one we all will remember. While we won't all be together again this Easter, hopefully it will be another good one!
