Easter Sunday turned out to be quite a nice day, if a little cooler than the previous days. I wore my white Garage skirt to church in the morning. Jordan’s mother dressed up too. However by the time we got home our legs were freezing so we changed back into pants. Everyone helped to clean up the house while Charlene made corn bread and I made hashbrown casserole. Jordan decided he wanted to make home-made croutons for the Caesar salad, and they turned out yummy.
My family started arriving around 2 pm. My mom brought lots of food: sliced turkey, mashed garlic potatoes, candied carrots, green beans almondine, mashed maple sweet potatoes, corn, home-made cranberry stuffing and cranberry sauce, and fresh gravy. We stuffed ourselves to the max, and then after hanging out on the patio for a couple hours, ate the desserts I prepared: vanilla pound cake, banana bread, and blueberry cheesecake. One of my sisters made cinnamon buns which were very popular. Mmmm. The food was wonderful!
My dad had to leave early, but everyone else left before five. Jordan’s parents decided that since they had everything packed already, that they would leave that day instead of early Monday morning. So we said goodbye to his parents and brother, who came up on the bus, and then had a nice evening to ourselves. It was quite hectic with all of us in one house, especially sharing one bathroom, but we managed and it was a pleasant visit. 🙂
