Ask the Reader!

“Ask the Reader” has been a quasi-regular feature at Real Life, for me to connect with those who come by. I’ll ask an easy question, and you can write a little or a lot.

The question for today:

What plans does your family have for Easter?

  1. Saturday at the in laws… They aren’t believers so they will be drinking and totally making it NOT about the kids. Then sunday morning we have church and my family coming over for a late brunch/early lunch, an easter egg hunt, bunny cake and dessert…


  2. We usually have my husband’s kids over, but this year I do not think we will be doing anything. I feel badly, and would love to have a family dinner but we have been so stretched out that I think this year it will be just us. Things could change though!


  3. Melissa Markham says:

    We have a church Easter Egg Hunt to attend on Saturday. On Sunday we will have Easter baskets and church and that’s about it. My hubby is out of town for work this weekend, so we are having a family dinner the following weekend.


  4. lil ole' me..... says:

    We know that we are going to Easter service, hopefully with my in-laws, who we invited a few weeks ago. If they come to church with us, we’re going to have them over for lunch afterwards.


  5. For the past 4-5 years, our family has gone up to Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge, TN for the week that the kids are out of school. I think it has become a tradition. We’re going again this year. We rent a cabin for the week, and our extended family and sometimes friends pop in at some point while we’re there. We have enjoyed going to Dollywood, the Miracle Theatre (At Easter time, it is about the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ…with live animals going down the aisles next to the kids section…very cool), horseback riding, Dixie Stampede, Comedy Barn, and the list goes on. We usually read the Bible to the kids the morning of Easter about the resurrection of Christ. Then, we’ll do an Easter egg hunt at the cabin. A week chaulk full of fun! We need a vacation from our vacation when we get back.


  6. It’s so weird, but in Latin American the Christians don’t make a big deal at all about Easter. I think it’s in reaction to the Catholics and all their celebrations. Church is just normal. But then again, don’t we celebrate the Resurrection every day?

    This Sunday, however, we will be crossing the border with 15 Mexicans to go to NC on a missions trip. That’s enough excitement for me!


  7. We plan on going to Michael’s parents house in Asheville. Michael is going caving on Sat then we’ll spend the night @ his parents and go to church. I’m excited because Michael’s grandma has been wanting to show off Kaleb for some time now. She mentions it EVERY time we see her. Should be a wonderful day.

    I’m really not sure this year. The Easter Egg hunt that we normally go to isn’t being held this year, so I doubt we’ll make it to another one. On Easter we’ll go to church in the morning and probably up to my in-laws at some point during the day.


  9. Pat and I will visit our son, Micah, in California, then fly to Seattle to visit Emma Davis and spend some West Coast time with David and Freida. Then we’ll take a boat to Victoria Island, B.C. before returning to our great state of North Carolina.
    Have a great Resurrection Day! which is, as Jan pointed out, actually every day.


  10. This year we are going to my brother’s house. My my mother, my sister, my brother-in-law and my niece will also be joining us. We’ll be having dinner on Saturday and everyone is going to stay the night – it’ll be like one big slumber party!
