Easter


Easter fun began with chocolate bunnies, placed in each child's breakfast bowl on the table, so that it was the first thing they saw when they came down in the morning. Our family Easter traditions seem to change from year to year, although we do always hang the Easter egg garland from the mantle piece, buy daffodils and eat hot cross buns and chocolate. I've really enjoyed reading about other people's Easter traditions. I think next year we need to make and decorate an Easter tree!


Yesterday we drove up to Durham where we are spending a few days with John's parents. The rest of the day was a happy mess of playing in the local park, throwing balls for Alfie the dog, playing with cars, eating Easter bunny biscuits, eating roast chicken, and then two very tired children settled down to sleep in record time in their new bunk beds.

Looks very nice! We didn't do many decorations this year either, but I enjoyed it all the same! x

The biscuits look lovely Gillian. And then two very tired children settled down to sleep in record time - what a wonderful end to a happy day. xx

Next year I am going all out on white spray painted twigs and Easter kitsch!

Gillian said...

My mother in law made them. They are good, I have eaten many!

Gillian said...

They tasted so good. Buttery and jammy!

I can take no credit for the biscuits, but i did enjoy eating them! (the kids took over an hour to settle tonight, lots of giggling and crashing coming from their room...)

Gillian said...

Thanks - I like the colours. And i appreciate it more as it only comes out for a couple of weeks a year!

i love your easter. the garland is beautiful as is the bunny biscuit. how cute is alfie! xo

Gillian said...

Thanks Veronica. Yes, Alfie is mighty cute but he is leaves a not so cute layer of white hair over EVERYTHING! Nothing is safe. No wearing black for me this week!
