My Favorite Thing About Easter

My Favorite Thing About Easter

SocialMoms and Universal Pictures have teamed up to introduce a fun, new blogging program and asked me to share with you about what is my favorite thing about Easter.You can read more about this request here 

Easter was always one of my favorite holidays since I was a little girl.My Mother would take my sisters and I out shopping for our Easter clothes about a month before Easter.We would choose beautiful,fancy dresses with the silk lace beaded designs.We would get the cute white bonnet hats with a matching little purse.The shoes we would pick out were the black shinny one's with the square heel and a bow.Our bobby socks would have the pretty satin lace.My Mother would paint our nails a light pink color and curl our hair all the same way.I would feel like a Princess.Did I mention the cute Shaw's we would wear over our shoulders?Wow,I just knew we all looked so pretty!

Mother would line us all up together to take our pictures with our little legs crossed.We were all given a dollar bill to put into our little purses.Easter was such a good day year after year.I can't wait in till next month on Easter Day to dress my kids up!!I love to watch their faces when they come down stairs in the morning looking for their Easter baskets.My Grandmom made all our Easter baskets and I passed them down to my kids.Everytime I think about those days when I was a little girl I smile like a kid all over again!

My family and I also attend Sunday Church service Easter morning following a delicious meal cooked by different members of our Church.I remember my Mother would be so worried that the food would be down our dresses and be ruined.Only once it was my youngest sister who dropped a piece of ham down her dress,it was only a light mark but my Mother looked at her and said "I'm so thankful today that, I can't use the positive energy to be mad,no point in getting upset!"I just love Easter,the memories I have are memories that are so special to me.I find myself doing the same on Easter as my Mother did with us.Year after year on Easter I tell my kids about those days!! It's such a wonderful feeling I feel when I share stories with my children.

Please feel free to share your favorite thing about Easter by commenting below!

About Hop:

Blending state of the art animation with live action, Hop is a comedy about E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand), the teenage son of the Easter Bunny. On the eve of taking over the family business, E.B. leaves for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream of becoming a drummer. Once there, he encounters Fred (James Marsden of the X-Men series, Enchanted), recently fired and determined to pull his life together. Feigning injury, E.B. persuades Fred to take him in, and Fred finds himself living with the world’s worst houseguest. Back on Easter Island, the Easter Bunny’s second in command, an oversized chick named Carlos, seizes E.B.’s disappearance as an opportunity to plot a coup. Ultimately, Fred and E.B. are Easter’s only hope and they find themselves returning to Easter Island, locked in an epic battle to save the beloved holiday. The film is helmed by Tim Hill, director of the blockbuster Alvin and the Chipmunks and produced by Chris Meledandri’s Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me).
