My family and Mercis’ family were here yesterday for Easter. Our parents, children, grandchildren, sisters, nieces, nephews and cousins. We packed a full house and that is a good thing.
Here are the Easter eggs I colored on Saturday morning. I boiled 18 and lost only 2, I thought that was pretty good.
My mom Tessie with Mercis’ parents Nina and Andy.
Here are Erin, Erica, Vera and Dana catching up.
Veronica, Marianne, Bill and Merci enjoying some Prosecco.
Natalie, Sophia, Liam and Christian. These kids ran up and down those stairs all day. I’m thinking it was all the candy they ate
Whatever candy they did not eat, they decided to sell. The made a market on the spare bed. Can you believe they made $18.00?
The kids just adore playing around with Sandra
Here is Miss Emma with Caleb. They were so cute playing together. It was all fun until they wanted to sleep. Then it was time to go home pronto.
Merci with her husband Billy.
After the appetizers, we start with my moms’ rabbit stew which is served with spaghetti. Our kids do not eat rabbit, but they love the sauce. Merci husband Billy and my son in law Bill do like the rabbit. There was ham, filet mignon and shrimp for all after we rested a bit.
I made two salads, a little something for everyone. There was also roasted potatoes.
This is a figolla, the traditional Maltese Easter cookie stuffed with almond paste. It comes in all types of shapes, this one is a fish.
This is the dessert table, what can I say? We take this very serious My favorite is Marlenes’ tangerine trifle. She makes it on Easter and New Years Day. I’m looking forward to some more tonight.
I don’t know how I missed to take a photo of Sandra and Chris, but to see the cute video she made yesterday click here
Easter brings fun, happiness, God’s endless blessings, love and the freshness of spring. Happy Easter to you and your family!
