I love Easter, for so many reasons. I especially love all the little preparations involved. The boys could hardly wait to get to work on dying the eggs.
I saved these little plastic cups from a couple of years ago. They make me kind of happy.
My boys learned long ago, by observation, that an essential part of checking out any yarn was to sniff it. So I shouldn’t have been surprised when Charlie started applying the same principle to fabric. He interrupted me while I was sewing the hem on my Easter skirt to ask if he could smell it. Why of course, dear one, sniff away.
For my entire life the Easter bunny cake has always been chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. I decided to switch things up a little this year. I made the cake chocolate but the frosting white buttercream. My face-designing skills obviously need some work, but otherwise I’m pleased. And the boys are really excited!
The best part of the preparations is that the boys don’t seem to have any memory about Easter baskets on Easter morning, and we haven’t been talking about them (we don’t do the “Easter Bunny” – I just make them baskets and each year they know they are from their dad and me). So I think they are going to be surprised in the morning.
If you celebrate Easter, I hope it’s a happy one for you and yours.
