A Little Bit of Easter

If you haven’t entered my current giveaway, you are really missing out!  Crystal takes very cool artsy photographs of maps (choose your favorite town) with a fun candy heart message (for message choices, ask Crystal).  You can win one 8x8, or two 5x5s.  Get one for yourself and give one as a gift!  Enter Here!

Well, I finally made it down to the basement and found the box of Easter stuff.  It’s not a holiday that I do a ton of decorating for; in fact, I’m kind of tired of the whole Easter basket/candy thing (bad mom!), and I’m thinking that this year we’re going to start a new tradition of putting the focus more on the resurrection than the bunny.  We do talk about it every year, and my kids know the real meaning of Easter, but I’d like that to be the emphasis rather than the aside.

But I’m not going to ditch the cute factor all together.  The kids appreciate a few touches here and there.

 

So here is Farmer Bunny:

And our little Easter tree:

And the thrift-store ceramic bunny with the cute expression:

Can’t you just see him wiggle his nose?

I’ll have an Easter project for you tomorrow!

Oh, I love your thrift store bunny. It reminds me of Snowball - my pet rabbit from when I was little. So cute!

We do let the kids have small Easter baskets, but we also go to church and talk about the REAL reason we celebrate. And of course, we hunt eggs.

Your tree is so cute, and I looove the Easter tree. I found a few tiny boxes of egg ornaments, but no tree yet. Think I saw one at Michaels...need to go look again. :)
