a happy day to all of you. the bunny stopped here, leaving playmobil, fruit leathers, and bubbles (though i think he was followed by granny bunny who seemed to sneak some chocolates and dvds into the mix). we made natural dyes for the eggs yesterday from blueberries, raspberries, and spinach. i love the feel of finding real eggs, the weight they create in your basket as you slowly fill it up. as a child, easter was my favorite holiday filled with cousins and running around in shiny white buckle shoes. for us it was a celebration of spring and family, of lemonade and potato salad. and though it can't be the same (and shouldn't) for sebastian, in some way we'll share the joy of finding ordinary eggs masquerading as painted clay treasures for the day, hidden carefully in branches and buckets.
hope you enjoyed your day as well.
