happy easter

I'm so looking forward to this weekend and Spring Break all next week. My kids love Easter, almost as much as they love Christmas. In fact Bee's favorite saying lately is "We have the luckiest life.." and then she goes on to name all the things she gets to do. First on the list is always "Because we get to go Easter egging! Mom, did you know some kids don't get to go Easter egging? Not ever!"

I've got to finish up a few Easter related items, like sewing Bee's dress (in a pretty green and white gingham) and stitching these sweet bunnies (I'm following the pattern from the book Hand Stitched Felt). Wish me luck!

That is my easter dress this year too! I only wish they came in grown-up sizes and my daughter and I could both wear one.

Along the lines of your little one's comment re: "some kids don't get to do egg hunts": My 4-yr old keeps asking "who in the world celebrates Easter?" I tried to explain that most Americans and Christians celebrate - then she launched into a million questions about where Christians lived in the world. Oh boy...

That is so sweet...brings a tear to my eye for all the kids who don't get so many of the things we all take for granted. I love when kids have such an appreciation of how lucky we are in the Western world.

I'm curious, what is Easter Egging?! Am I missing something here in England. Is it the same as an Easter egg hunt? We had our egg hunt and egg rolling race today. All good fun. Do let me know.......:)

What a sweet girl. Easter Sunday night, my daughter asked me if the Easter bunny was still at our house. I said that he wasn't. She then asked me if he might be hiding in her closet! Ha ha!

I agree with Bee! Can you imagine childhood without "Easter egging?!"

"The Luckiest Life" - I just love that.

So sweet. I read that to my husband and he smiled--we often say to each other "Don't we have a wonderful life? Aren't we the luckiest people?" I hope our kids feel the same. :)

Your Bee is adorable... I hope to have such a lovely family one day!

My heart just grew one size. Your little Bee sounds just like a little delight. Hope you had fun egging. ;)
