I love Easter! And no, it’s not just because we get a basket of candy…Although having something like this waiting for you when you wake up is a nice added bonus.
I like Easter because it’s a day we get to spend with our family. It also means we get to come up with clever crafts and super-cute baked goods and are usually lucky enough to enjoy some sunshine and brisk cool spring weather.
This year we’re celebrating at my parent’s house and I will attempt to make these lovely treats from the talented…Martha Stewart. I found her "Cupcakes" book at Home Goods and promptly put it in our basket. Since we entertain so much I thought I would always be able to find the perfect thing to make for many of our dinner parties-so far it has worked out in my favor!
My parents have called my sister and I “their chicks” since we were babies, so I try to find Kathy chicky things and I though these were TOO cute not to try for Easter.
These little cuties are from Let them Eat Lentils. Kathy and I also got baby chicks one year for Easter when we lived in Malaysia. We had a huge yard and our parents thought it would be a great gift. I will see if I can't find a pic and scan it in, they were SOO soft and a TON of fun to chase around the yard. We were quite a hoot!
Anyone else get a chick for easter? Or perhaps ones like these instead??
