Easter


Buttons is a smart cookie and she asks an enormous amount of questions. I want for her to believe in the same magical things that i believed in as a kid, but I also don't want to lie to her if she asks me outright. It's a tough line to toe. She wondered if the Easter Bunny was a girl or a boy and she decided maybe there was one of each. When the day came and she searched for eggs (outside and inside) she was thrilled. I can see why parents continue with the traditions of their youth. I hope I was as fun for my parents as Buttons is for us.

I also want to share our fun with eggs. Buttons can crack eggs now and the joyful beep that follows once the shell has broken is so much fun to hear I feel like making eggs all the time. However, she only broke through a couple of eggs on dyeing day due to zealous crayon use.


She counted all the drops for each of the 8(!) colors...
...drew various designs with crayons...
...dipped...
...and voila...one of 24 Easter eggs!

Doesn't she look like she's so much older?

Yes, she does look lots older, like a young "Foot Tessa!" I'm so glad you captured the ritual and...yes! you were lots of fun for your parents, especially trying to find your Easter Basket.
