Easter con Charlton Heston

The annual Suzanne showing of the 10 commandments. Easter is mostly about movies right? Movies and movie food.

Popcorn, apples and cheese. That's M&Ds version of a movie treat. The 10 commandments is an epic movie event. Now that I'm and adult, I actually get to see the red sea part, and the worshiping of idols. Scandalous. Good thing I'm 27, and can handle that filth on the big screen :)

We watched the 10 commandants every year. It's honestly my favorite part of Easter. Yep, I'm catholic. Yep, I went to Easter vigil with my Dad, washed old ladies' feet on Thursday, donned an Easter dress for Sunday, and rushed to find my basket Easter morning. But, the 10 commandments? Man, that was the best.

My dad would air pop popcorn, slice apples, roll up lunch meat and slice cheese. We would spread a table cloth out and, get this, EAT in the living room! Gasp! With the whole fam. That is my favorite part of Easter. No, it's not sacrilege. It just was so important to have that treasured time with my family. That meant more to me than anything else. Sorry Jesus.

I'm so thankful I got to spend this Easter Saturday with my family. Nick, Ellen and Joey made the trek to the hood to join us for a pre-Easter munchfest. I love all of you, thanks for eating my nasty ranch/nacho cheese deviled eggs! And, thank you Nick for breaking my kitchen sink, come on over any time :)
