Emma's been really excited about Easter this year
Emma's been really excited about Easter this year. Throughout the week at school, they've been making eggs and drawing pictures of bunnies and chicks. Yesterday we spent hours working on Easter-themed projects. There was a paper bunny named Lucy that became our table's centerpiece. I took the "Happy New Year's" off a party thingie and turned it into bunny ears. We made and colored paper eggs and taped them on the kitchen door.
This morning Jamie had to keep Emma in bed until seven o'clock, as she was up early. She came down the stairs and was all smiles as she went looking for eggs and opened them up. At this point, she knows that we're the ones hiding them, but it doesn't seem to diminish the magic all that much.
After the egg hunt, we did a Peter Rabbit puzzle and I read the story of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle in a British accent.
Now she's watching Barbie Mariposa, a fairy-themed Barbie video. She opened up the little marketing brochure inside the DVD case, filled with cross-promotional advertisements for dolls and such. Her first words were "Can I have these?" We laughed and replied, "All of them?" Later on she looked over all her Easter goodies and said, "I didn't get very much."
