Easter is just around the corner. I love Easter. It usually means Spring flowers will begin blooming, outside grill time with the family and we get to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior. Don’t forget about shopping for a beautiful Easter dress. My eyes have been peeled to store windows and online stores for the best deal on Easter dresses for my sweet girls.
Easter is fun to create special traditions with your family. Your children will always remember these special traditions as they are growing up. Here are a few fun and inspiring Easter traditions.
Tell the Easter Story By Using Jelly Beans
– Jelly Bean Poem (Author Unknown)
Place this poem in a small bag with some jelly beans.
Red is for the blood He gave.
Green is for the grass He made.
Yellow is for the sunflowers so bright.
Black is for the dark of night.
White is for the grace He gave.
Orange is for the sun He made.
Purple is for the hours of sorrow.
Pink is for our new tomorrow.
A bag full of jelly beans,
colourful and sweet.
It’s a prayer, a promise,
and a child’s treat.
We love to peek out the front door each Easter morning to see what the bunny left the girls. The baskets usually are filled with HERSHEY’s goodies!

We always have an Easter dinner after church. Sometimes it is just the four of us and other times it can be a big crowed. The dinner is enjoyable either way.
