Who Knew? Making Holiday Memories Requires Work
Is it hard to enjoy the family during a holiday? I do so love Holidays as they are tinged with the expectation of making memories. But making memories, especially during a Holiday, requires work. You have got to maintain a normal household schedule of cleaning and laundry in addition to cooking for the entire family or if you’re lucky you get to collaborate with the committee of women in the family on who’s going to cook and bring what. Easter definitely ranks up there as a Holiday that requires work because for me it means
- making sure our son has a haircut
- making appointments either at the beautician or scheduling time for me to do the girls hair
- ensuring all necessary components of Easter outfits (including shoes that fit, matching bows, stockings, purses etc.) are laid out and ready (as nobody wants to be scrambling for seats in the overflow room at church on Easter Sunday)
- And most importantly (according to my children) attending an Easter egg hunt.
- the Easter baskets we would get.
- having fun with my cousins trying to find real Easter eggs.
- putting on my new Easter dress
- sitting in Mrs. Smith’s hairdresser chair as my mama requested Shirley Temple curls.
- getting to let my hair hang down because it was a special occasion.
- the ham and macaroni we enjoyed at my grandma’s house after church service.
What Easter memories did you and the family build this year?
