Twas the night before Easter, and all through the house… the dresses were hung by the chimney with care!
I have only bought the girls “Easter dresses” once before. It was about time!
They were thrilled by both the dresses and the baskets. (In case you were wondering, I told the Easter bunny my little dude didn’t need a basket until next year!)
For breakfast, I tried out some homemade bunny “pop tarts.” I used a recipe for a coffee cake dough. I think next time I’ll simply buy a pie crust. But, the girls enjoyed them!
After breakfast and church, we stopped to take a few pictures. This tiny little corner has proved a great place for spring pictures — you can’t even tell it’s a small corner of a busy street!

Lunch: egg salad tulips!
And then it was time for the Easter egg hunt… Sadly, little guy wanted to take a nap. Next year, buddy… next year!
Just look what we found when we came in:
My parents were originally going to be down here for Easter. And, we would have loved to have them. We thought of inviting friends. And, we declined a few offers to go to other friends. In the end, we decided a simple family day would be best. And, it was the best. The big kids even watched a movie in the afternoon while Malachi, Daniel, and I got a nap! But here’s what I love about my husband. He still went to a lot of work over dinner… just for our family! It was so special.
May your hearts be filled with the joy of the good news of Easter all year long!
