First of all, this week at Family Dinner Night the babies got their pre-Easter baskets.
I couldn't find gloves tiny enough for Amara this year, so I went with an Easter purse since there is nothing that girl loves more than a purse! I found a little "Babies 1st Easter" bib for Christian because you can't leave out the boys! I'll have to think of something to give boys every year - a tie maybe?

Not so much.
It turns out industrial strength is easy - you just start early and keep on adding layers. Making something a baby can break is way harder because it's too thin to hold it's shape very well. It's no beauty, but it's done. Amara and Christian will at least look back and say they had a Grammy Easter pinata every year of their lives.
Yes, I like traditions.
It kinda goes along with my making lists, liking a schedule, daily itineraries and all that other uptight yet productive stuff. I'm sure not all the kids will make it to our house every year for Easter. But if I'm successful, whenever they do come the grandkids will relish the thought of Easter Feast at Grammy & Grandfather's!
