Easy Easter

I’m starting to think we’re doing Easter wrong. We had no baskets, no bunnies. It wasn’t until Friday night that I thought I should probably invite my sister to dinner. Granted, we were grappling scarlet fever/strep throat, but certainly if we had traditions we would have been able to make them work.

Thankfully, all was not lost. We managed to fit in some talk about what Easter is really about early in the week. We snuck in an egg hunt (and I hope we didn’t infect anyone with our nasty strep bacteria . . . sorry if we did!), I found a dress tutorial so Little Miss would be properly attired at church (easiest dress ever . . . my new go-to), and our neighbor – bless him! – invited us over for some real Easter ham. It made all the difference to have a place to go and people to chat with on Easter night.

The holiday was saved by a thread.

Next year, however, things will be different. I’m not entirely sure how. But I’m plotting and planning and hoping to make it something special.

New traditions await.

  1. She looks adorable! And nice job on the dress! I’d love to make matching dresses like that for my girls. Thanks for the link. And sounds like Easter turned out wonderfully despite the illnesses. 🙂


  2. Ugh. I was diagnosed with tonsilitis on Saturday, just in time for Easter, so I feel your pain. Fortunately, we were with my brother and sister-in-law, and they did an amazing job with creating an amazing holiday for our little one and his cousins.

    Sometimes, not having a plan works out just as well. Hope you are all on the mend!

    The dress is absolutely gorgeous!
