We had a quiet but nice Easter by ourselves in Bloomington this year. I am "too pregnant" to travel the 3 hours home so we spent a day on our own. We tried to go to 10:30 a.m. mass, but it was so crowded we went to Bob Evan's instead. We did make it back to church for the 5:30 p.m. mass, and it was much less crowded.

Hal made a lamb and fruit stew for dinner that was really yummy (and reminiscent of Katniss' fav dish in The Hunger Games).

Luke got an Easter basket the week before from Gammy and Pa (my mom and dad), when Gammy came to visit for a couple of days (she helped me clean my house and get things ready for Nathan's impending arrival. Gammy and Pa's basket included several cute clothes (including the shirt he has on in the picture), a couple of books, an Elmo dish, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and some eggs with chocolate goldfish in them. On Easter, he got a basket from us/the bunny. He got an Elmo cup and note pad, a Reese's egg and chocolate bunny, a couple of books and a slinky. The slinky was a hit! I love the Target dollar spot, where we got all of his stuff.
