We had a Cascarones party with some of our friends from the co-op. Interestingly, research on the world wide web suggests that the confetti filled egg tradition popular in Latin American communities might actually have been an Italian gift-giving tradition before morphing into something associated with Easter.
So, perhaps we were being slightly Italian. Mostly, we were just having fun chasing each other and smashing eggs on each others' heads
Everyone all dressed up in their finest:
Jotham, Bartholomew and Tabitha was a highlight of our Lent.
And then it was the much anticipated egg hunt! Thanks to my mom for sending 60 filled eggs for the kids. Those plus the golden eggs from Ted's mom and the empty eggs from Ted and me were scattered throughout our yard, and the hunt was on!
Candy in some, money in one, and an empty egg that they could exchange for a better gift (kinda' like the better gift from the empty tomb)--we had some happy chicks.
