Hippety Hoppity Easter Hodgepodge

1. What are your plans for Easter Day/weekend?
Saturday we will go to the church egg hunt and then Princess is attending a birthday party for one of her sweet little friends from school.  That evening we will dye eggs and get ready for Easter morning.  We will talk about what happened on Good Friday and why that makes Easter Sunday so special.  Easter morning we will wake up to see Easter baskets and then go to church.  Four generations will sit together in church as we listen to the Easter message and sing "He Lives."  After church we will go home and hunt eggs and get ready for dinner at my parents' house.

2. Besides Jesus, what one person from The Bible would you most like to meet and why?
That is a tough question.  There are so many people I would like to meet.  I think if I have to pick, I would choose Simon Peter, "the rock."

3. What is one modern day convenience you didn't have as a child that was easy to live without?
Internet because I didn't know what I was missing.  We still knew how to go to the library to look things up in books.  It's so wrong that kids can do research papers without leaving their house.  We actually had to look things up in ginormous reference books that couldn't be check out of the library so it had to be done during library hours and you couldn't wait until the last minute. 

4. Are you more right brained or left brained? If you don't know what that means there is an interesting little quiz here.
I am whole brained with a tendency toward the right.  I do try to analyze everything out, but in the end, the creative brain takes over and that wins out.

5. What is something you intended to do today but didn't? Why?
It's early, but I am going to predict that to be getting the house all straightened up and everything put away.  I can predict this because lately it's on my agenda every morning but I have been massively failing in that department.  I can always be optimistic, though.  Why won't I get it done?  There are many reasons this might not occur...not enough time, children come behind me pulling more stuff out, way too much to do to finish it all... OR maybe the house cleaning fairy will come while I am at work and it will all be done when I get home and then I won't have to spend my afternoon cleaning up.  It could happen, I'm not holding my breath, but it could happen.

6. Cadbury Creme Eggs or Reeses peanut butter?
Reeses peanut butter ~ yummy! 

7. Who was your favorite cartoon character when you were a child?
Strawberry Shortcake ~ not the newly modernized "Jenny Craig" one, but the original one.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
As I finish answering these questions I have a snuggly little boy named Prince snuggling up right next to me asking me what I'm doing and why.  I've gotta go take advantage of this snuggle time before he has to get ready for school. 


  1. I was subbing recently (highschool science, not my forte) and a student asked a question I couldn't answer. There are computers in the room and I confess to thinking...hmmm...I could google it : ) Definitely making us lazy!

  2. I miss those early morning snuggles. Enjoy!

  3. I would hold out for the house cleaning fairy. There's gotta be one around here somewhere. :) And I think clean houses are highly overrated. Enjoy your little ones, and have a blessed Easter!

  4. Your Easter sounds perfect. Happy Easter!

  5. My girls LOVED Strawberry Shortcake. A few months ago, they were all at the house and found some episodes posted on line - all three crowded around the computer and watched and laughed - it was a hoot!

  6. So enjoyed your answers, especially sounds like a very special Easter is planned. May you and yours be especially blessed this Easter!

  7. If I had been you, I would have stayed and snuggled all day...and not done a thing! :D

  8. I was so tempted to stay and snuggle. If only I didn't have to have him to school this morning. I guess I know what we'll be doing on our holiday on Friday!

  9. The *real* Strawberry Shortcake was one of my favorites as well! I saw your link on the Hodgepodge link-up post... nice to meet you =)
