Brad and I had a quiet Easter, we didnt make plans to drive out to visit his family, they live five hours away and its a bit of a treck, as you can probably imagine. Easter kind of snuck up on me this year, and I didnt think to make Easter dinner plans (or supper as its refered to here in NL). So instead we had a nice breakfast of homemade waffles followed by too much easter candy - of course.
Here are some snapshots of the festivities:
Our Easter treats. Mine is the bigger basket, as well as the Muppets chocolate. Brad got the smaller basket. Oh well!
Two little bunnies I secretly knit for Brad on Easter Eve. Free pattern found on Ravelry here.
Mmmm homemade waffles!
One of our cats Ollie investigating the haul. (I'll do a post on her and the other two soon).
Easter was never a huge deal growing up, Christmas was the "bigger" holiday. Although I do have fond memories of Easters as a child. Unfortuanatly I didn't believe in the easter bunny for long, I couldn't really wrap my head around a giant bunny delivering eggs; I did however firmly believe in Santa for quite some time, but he is a human after all - and I think thats why my belief in him was so real. My mother made me (well I guess I shouldn't say "made") hunt for easter treats with my younger brothers until I was 18, but at least she didn't make us divide our eggs evenly between each other like she did when we were small (something I always hated to do - finders keepers was my moto). In our family we only ever went to Church on Easter Sunday, I hated it, but there was one part that I looked forward too. Little chocolate eggs would be hidden in the pews, and before the service would start Id run around and steal, I mean gather, as many of those eggs as I could carry before too many people entered, and since I would always be wearing a dress - which coincidently wouldn't have pockets, I would stuff said eggs in my pantyhose for safe keeping. Needless to say, it wasn't long before the eggs would melt and Id be a chocolaty mess.
I hope everyone had a safe and Hoppy Easter! Thanks for stopping - or should I say hopping? (hehe) by!
