How do you celebrate Easter?

Every year for Easter we dye eggs on Saturday and clean up dye for 3 weeks after  and then on Sunday morning the kids are allowed to eat candy for breakfast (but not too much).  Oh my goodness, did she just admit that?  Yes, I did because they are kids and I think they should enjoy being kids.  We then get cleaned up and go to church with the rest of the family.  Most years we go to my husband's grandfather's house for a crawfish boil and the kids hunt the afore mentioned Easter Eggs and eat even more candy.  It is a simple yet stress free way to spend the day with family.  Pop has a lot of land and the kids run around and burn off all the sugar from the candy that they have been eating since the crack of dawn.  Head on over to Kingdom First Mom and check out her Easter Eggstravagnza for more ideas.
