    Easter Crafts for Kids

    Well…in true Esther fashion this post is LATE, LATE LATE. This last Easter was strange since we were still under quarantine and could not see any of our friends and family. No big Easter Egg hunt, no Easter Sunday Service, Easter Family Dinner, No Easter Bunny Photos (srsly so devastated)…nothing. Sugar Cookies to hand out to our neighbors. Um…these came out TERRIBLY.

    Easter Crafts & Baking for Kids

    I LOVE a good holiday.  Big or small, I love theme parties, gift bags, and table settings.  (although i hate decorating my home so i just like to look at pictures of table settings…) This year, Charlotte will be almost 3 when Easter rolls around and I am SOOO excited to share the real reason for Easter (Jesus’ resurrection) and also give her ten thousand Easter baskets and eggs.  LOL  a bit much?  Maybe just 4 baskets and 100 eggs then.  hieeeeee.  I’ll do another post on Easter Egg Basket Ideas (b/c I obsess over it).  ;P Last year we did a sad Easter egg hunt in our apartment complex’s courtyard. …
