Picking out the Easter Outfit. When I was younger, it was always a big deal to go out and find a special outfit for Easter. We would head out, just us girls, and look for a pretty dress to wear to church. When I was really little, we would also get a matching hat, purse, and shoes to go along with it.
Now as an adult, I have started this same tradition for my little girl. This past year, I went out and hunted the perfect dress for her. So needless to say, I will be doing it again this year.
Preparing the Basket: Obviously, when I was really small, I had no idea of the effort that my mom put into making my sisters and me a special Easter Basket. As I got older I realized that she was the preparer and not the infamous Easter Bunny. I also realized how important it was to my mom that we had a awesome basket filled with all of our favorites. One of the things she would also do is try to add something special that was specifically for each child.
My husband and I have continued this same tradition in our own family. Of course, we have the usual jelly beans, peeps, and plastic eggs, but we make sure we add a special something that we know each one of our children will really like.
