Easter is Sunday!

I can not believe how fast this year is flying by! Seems like 2008 was just yesterday and here we are in April of 2009 and its Easter already!

This is the first year in a few years that we have not gone to San Antonio for Easter. We just decided we would spend this Easter weekend at home. We were hoping for beautiful weather, but unfortunately it looks like Mother Nature wants us to stay indoors this year. It looks to be very wet here in Houston.

The kiddos are out of school on Friday so I will try to keep them entertained with coloring pages and dying Easter eggs. If I really get brave, maybe we will make some sort of Easter craft. Any ideas?

Saturday might be the only somewhat dry day we get, so we maybe hiding eggs on Saturday for the kiddos to find.

I tried to stay away from the candy this year, so my kids will be getting a movie each, some clothes, flip flops and fun little things in their Easter baskets.

What do you do with your family on Easter? Do you always travel? Cook a big traditional dinner? What will you put in your kids Easter baskets this year?

We made paper flowers from the kids handprints last week and they look so pretty in a glass, if you need a craft this weekend, that is a fun one. We try not to get too carried away w/ candy either, I put a few jelly bean in their hidden eggs and usually try to find a chocolate bunny lollipop for the girls instead of those giant chocolate bunnies. We usually fill their baskets with little toys and a movie, as well as a book about Easter or spring.

I hope you have a dry weekend.
