Our Easter

Did you all have nice family time this weekend? We had family over for dinner and just spent time hanging out with the kids.

Easter is celebrated a little differently for our family. Growing up, my parents were not religious. Easter was just about the Easter Bunny, dying eggs and baskets of goodies. Having kids of my own, I looked at how I would celebrate Easter with them, and whether or not I would. Jason and I decided that there is a bit of magic in childhood so we went along with the traditions we grew up with.

The kids dyed eggs on Friday afternoon and then decorated them with stickers. It was the cleanest option besides glitter and painting that they had their eyes on at the store.

On Sunday, we had family over for a nice meal, some Dance Central and Rock Band.

I decorated the table with paper doilies and some Easter egg candles I've had in the bin for years.

On the other table I used some muslin from the fabric stash along with some felt flowers I made while watching a couple of movies Saturday afternoon. It was a very relaxing weekend. Today I will be not relaxing cleaning, washing lots of dishes and catching up on many loads of laundry.

How do you manage celebrating holidays in your family with different cultures and religions?


  1. My family aren't religious, but we're not against religion, and we embrace tradition and the culture that comes from living in a Church Of England community. So we get Easter eggs, and that's kind of all. In England, maybe when you're little there's an Easter egg hunt, and there's always hot cross buns.
    It looks like you had a good weekend!

  2. I'm relieved to see someone else celebrating like we did!
