E is for Easter Dress
I finished Little Olive's Easter dress today! She helped me pick out the material a few days ago, and she's been impatiently waiting for me to sew it up. I've heard, "Mommy, tan I wear dat?" probably 36 times.
I'm spending the rest of the day getting ready for the weekend. I still have to run a few errands to pick up food and stuff. For baskets this year, we're going to keep it simple: just candy. I'm not a huge fan of junk food, but at the same time, I'm not about to turn Easter into another Christmas and have the kids receive toys. Besides, candy is a nice way to say, We've fasted throughout Lent; now let's celebrate! Our baskets will probably hold a little chocolate bunny, some jelly beans, and maybe some other fruity-spring candy. Ooh, that just reminded me to pick up some Jelly Belly's. We love those.
