Pre-Easter Madness

Happy Easter!

It’s the night before Easter, and all through the house….

It’s 8:40, the night before Easter. Colored eggs? Check. Mostly clean house? Check. Candy divided up into separate bags for each family member? Check. The only thing I have left to do is help the girls write the letter to the Easter bunny, set out a few carrots, get the cinnamon rolls ready for the fridge, get the kids into bed and asleep (please, God…), and get everything set up for in the morning.

For a one-shot holiday, Easter is a hassle. Unless you’re religious and get into all of the pre-Easter festivities there, it’s just a day with a lot of prep, a big meal, and then it’s over. It’s like a disappointing Christmas. Except there are jelly beans, possibly the best redeeming quality the day has.

To make the evening even more exciting, Becca has the idea that, if there are goldfish crackers left on the floor, there is a very good chance that the Easter bunny will accidentally crush them on his way in and out of the house. So, I’m letting Fiona spread some around (she’s so good at it), and then I will be crushing some near the table later, and maybe some in the hallway. She’ll be thrilled; everyone will hear about this for weeks.

I am off to get the girls into bed so I can get everything else started. Happy Easter, everyone!
