I have just spent what feels like a food shop budget on stuff for Easter! I have Easter eggs for everyone and all the crafts bits for Jenson’s Easter bonnet. This was not my idea!
Jenson’s preschool do a Spring fayre and an Easter bonnet competition, Jenson got wind of this so naturally wants to make one without even knowing what they are or that they existed 5 seconds before this! Anyway, we have googled and he has found the design he wants, a bumble bee. Not Easter related at all! We will have a lot of fun making it anyway and I love doing stuff like this with him, hopefully his attention will last.
This weekend is normal to us, we don’t do any big celebration. Of course we have an Easter egg hunt, Jenson nearly popped with excitement last year over the clues so this year will be even better. I tend not to buy him lots of eggs as he gets lots of other family members so I have bought him the Playmobil hospital and Emeline has some baby mats and toys.
Good Friday, Scott is working overtime so Jenson and I might do the Cadbury Easter Egg hunt at our local National Trust site. Then Saturday, usual swimming lessons and a day together. Easter Sunday, we will have Sunday lunch at my parents with the whole family. Easter Monday, we are off to our local garden Center for breakfast with the Easter bunny and then once my inlaws have returned from their weekend away we are going there for dinner.
Last Easter, we cooked a delicious roast lamb at ours. It was when we announced we were expecting another a baby so it was a really exciting day. It also meant that Easter was over and done with in a shot and Jenson wasn’t too overwhelmed, he doesn’t need to have an Easter egg hunt at every house as the Easter bunny comes here only for him, like Father Christmas.
I am ready with glue, paint brushes, newspaper and the glue gun for the massive bonnet make… Watch this space!
