Three of the Easter baskets turned out looking like this. I found some pretty good tufts to dig up in the dark!
But this is MY basket. A basket of floppy, wilty, and old dead weeds.
The setup for the morning. I hung up the girls dresses with their baskets and shoes because Anja was so excited to wear it all. She'd been asking ALL WEEK to wear her white shoes, and she knew that today was the day! So, this setup makes it look like a much bigger production than it actually was.
This is what I gave Martin.
Look at these cute little gnomies and how they fit so nicely into the felted eggs! Each girl got three.
The Easter Bunny left Anja and Greta a letter on the plate where we had left the carrots and cheese!
Can you say SUGAR HIGH!?
And this one is completely drunk on chocolate!
Egg hunt in the yard. Anja was SO EXCITED. Some of the eggs had mini chocolate bars, some had little felt flowers. She loved the flowers best! Mmmmm... it warms my heart!
All of the gnomies in their eggs!! Martin ordered these when he got their play kitchen and I'm SO GLAD he did. They are wonderful!! And they are such perfect church toys---Anja took them all to church with her in a tiny little basket and they were the perfect church companions.
In a little bit we'll head up to my parents house for good food, then come back here later in the afternoon for the Schap side celebration and even MORE good food...... aaaaaahhh, I am getting full just thinking about it all!
