Photo from 1996. Peter was 5, Sam was 4, and Fallon was 8 months. Wearing jelly bean shirts from L.L. Bean, and bunny ears.....Easter decals on the window above in our home when we lived in Michigan. As usual, at least one egg was missing from the hunt. We still dye eggs the same way, and still use the baskets from those early days, but now we use paper grass instead of that green plastic stuff because we have a cat. We've traded in some of the old plastic eggs for the ones that are hinged - so much easier to fill when you don't have to find the matching top or bottom. Wake up time is a little different so the "Easter Bunny" doesn't have to scramble in the wee hours to hide eggs and put out the baskets. I can no longer dress Fallon with ruffles and a hat ....because she's 22! And while the boys are 26 and 27, all three kids + mom + dad colored eggs Friday night.
Happy memories, and Happy Easter.
