Here Comes Peter Cottontail...
Between S's birthday and Easter, there's been a boatload of sugar consumed in our house this week, and a 4-year-old so excited about it all he can barely sleep. This Easter I wanted to make most of what when into Seamus's basket, but since time is precious and I also had a birthday to plan for, I decided to forgo the homemade chocolate bunnies and handmade Easter baskets and let Cadbury and Stop and Shop do most of that work.
I did, however, manager to make two special things...
An easy handknit chick that took only half an hour to knit up...and holds a secret surprise:
And some simple crepe paper carrots that also held Easter treats inside:
We also dyed Easter eggs of course:
And now we're getting ready to hide and hunt them all. Happy Easter everyone!
