Happy Easter!

You know it's officially Easter at the Wright residence when I've finished making nests :)

If you haven't tried making them before, you have to. They're the easiest thing EVER. You're basically just making Rice Krispie cake - with crunched up shredded wheat instead of Rice Krispies - and then forming it into little 'nests' instead of pressing it all into a pan. Add some mini eggs, give them an hour or so to harden a little, and you're done. These things fly off the plate everywhere I bring them. I can't wait until Briony's old enough to help - or to care :)

We really weren't sure what to do for her to celebrate Easter this year. I didn't want her to have chocolate, so I found and filled this little bucket with Easter goodies - a couple of books, some socks, some new Little People, and a bunch of plastic eggs filled with little snacks that she's allowed to eat. We're giving it to her tomorrow and we'll see how it goes over... It's so much fun that she's starting to notice holidays, but it will be even more fun when she understands what's going on.

How do you celebrate Easter with your kids?
Or how did you celebrate when you were a kid?

we do an easter egg hunt with footprint clues and all. first time was last year and it was great. this year should be even better as he understands it all that much more.
