Easter Traditions

What are your Easter Traditions?  
#1 THE CROSS-  We start a week early talking about the cross.  This past Sunday, our family had a nice dinner and a long discussion about the cross.  Then each of us, including the kids, told what it meant to us.
When He was on the cross, I was on His mind!  
He is risen! 


2. Bunnies- Have you ever made the bunny cake out of two round cakes?  Made my first in a high school home ec. class.  My 4 year old hasn't made one yet so we may just pull out the pans, cake mixes, icing, and jelly beans.
3. Cupcakes- What about the Easter basket cupcakes?  Local bakeries are selling such pretty cupcakes now that it almost seems a waste to make them.  Still fun to bake though!

4. Egg Hunt-   The ultimate for kiddos! My kids want me to hide the eggs again and again.  When the adults get too tired, we let the kids hide them for us to find.  Now that's fun!
Hope you have a blessed Easter!!

Hi Tammy, Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving a sweet comment. I appreciate you, you have been such a kind friend. Regarding Easter traditions, I don't think I have ever had any real traditions. When I was a kid we colored eggs and hid them, I even made the cake that you described. But since then, I haven't done anything really. I did color eggs with my kids some, but that was a long time ago. We aren't doing anything special this year either. Just being really grateful for the sacrifice that Jesus made for me. Hugs, Cindy S

Love all the photos. Those basket cupcakes look too pretty to eat.

I sooo miss my girls being little and the looks on their faces seeing their baskets first thing in the morning. Two of the three will be here for Easter and of course they all (including middle's boyfriend and Hubby) get Easter baskets filled with goodies.

Have a wonderful Easter with your family.

Love all your traditions :)

Hot cross buns, and easter egg hunt for the kids are pretty traditional here. We often get the girls new white shoes and a pretty new spring dress too.

I'm having a blogging break while my husband and kids are enjoying the weather.
I've been SO busy lately and have missed reading about what you and everyone else has been doing.
You have great Easter traditions.
Happy Resurrection Day!
