So this year the Easter bucket display was reduced to just the three remaining kids in our home. I think the bright orange and neon green buckets are needed to balance the darker tones of those left behind. But for a few days each year, it will be what it will be.
We dyed eggs, using the traditional grocery store white per the request of some picky artists despite my insistence farm fresh are pretty too.
Due to Jen's memorial service this evening, we held an early dinner and polished that off with Kate's famous homemade carrot cake.
A special Facetime guest lamented he wasn't eating smoked turkey with us and another headed out to have dinner with his family when we loaded up to say goodbye to Jen. Easter was a bit somber this year.
