How does your family celebrate?
We tell the kids that the Easter Chicken will only lay pretty eggs if the children clean the house the night before.
APRIL FOOLS! (Although we totally should have went with that version and you can feel free to steal it.)
In our house, the Easter Bunny hides the easter baskets. And he (she? it?) always includes a book, some chocolate, and a surprise.
E.B. hid three baskets last night.
Babystar is only two years old so hers was kind of easy to find: under the train table.
Princess Buttercup and Magic Boy (he’s a magician) are legal adults so E.B. could try a bit harder.
Princess Buttercup (age 18) insisted on having a giant stuffed chick so her basket and chickie were hidden in the only place it would fit: the corner cupboard.
E.B. tried hard to trick College Boy but he found it anyway.
Babystar found her basket first. AND she found it all by herself! E.B. is gonna step up her hiding game next year. Tbh I should have known. Babystar LOVES hide and seek.
And now it’s time for the break down.
