Every Easter We celebrate with a nice dinner and eat together as a family. It’s hard during school and work to actually be able to eat at the same time, so we make it a point to on Holidays. This year my kids decided to go with a ham for dinner, but knowing them they won’t eat very much. We ended up with a really big Hormel Cure 81 ham, that was on sale for a good price.
Cooking it was a cinch and everyone loved it for dinner, pairing it with pineapple, mashed potatoes and veggies and salad.
We were left with tons of leftovers, and my kids complained that we were eating ham for days. There are so many things you can have ham with so we made the best of it.
What was on the table for Easter at your house? Do you prefer ham for special occasions?

My kids have fallen for the Shopkins craze, and when a new product comes out they just want it.
One of the latest products is the Shopkins So Cool Fridge Playset.
The fridge comes with two special characters and tiny eggs. You can open the fridge and all it’s compartments. The ice maker even works, just stick a Shopkin on it and push for ice and it falls in the cup. The fridge can hold plenty of Shopkins and has been non stop fun for my kids.
They have been sticking the shoes and appliances in the fridge,and then complaining it doesn’t go there. We don’t have very many season 1 which have the Dairy.
My kids love Shopkins but as a mom they can be so hard to find, and there have been a few times where I will find them but then someone scoops everything up before I can get one. It has taken months just to get the few we have, because I tell my kids they can have 1 pack each when we find them. It’s only fair to leave them for other kids who love them.
Shopkins Easter Basket Fun:
We have been putting together some fun ideas for a Shopkins Easter Basket including the fridge. Shopkins are so small they can fit in the Easter eggs and it’s perfect for a egg hunt.
Depending on the size eggs you buy you can fit a Shopkin in a small egg or a Shopkin with a shopping bag in a big egg.
Will you be doing a Shopkins Easter Basket?
Easter was kind of a wierd one. My husbands birthday was on Easter this year. (which makes him so proud) the last time it was on the 23 was 1913 and the next time will be my husbands 246 birthday. He did all this research about it.
I made a big dinner for all his family, well the ones that came. Then followed by a cake, it was so stressful on me and me and my husband decided no more family get togethers unless he is out on vacation. Good for me! Our spring break was the week before and we went and had family portraits done something I have been begging for forever. My husband hates pictures. They came out really good though. I’ll try posting one later it won’t let me right now. We went to the zoo, which i really liked the gorillas came up close to us. They are older females and take to kids so they wanted to come see our kids. That was about it. So it was a fun 2 weeks for me.
How do you spend time with your family on Easter? Do you do baskets for the kids? Go to Church? Big Dinner?
