Easter... Whimsy, Innocence, Fun!

April 01, 2013  •  3 Comments

..."Who was crucified under Pontius Pilate and was buried and the third day rose from the dead"...  This is part of the Apostles' Creed. It is what I get excited about at Easter and celebrate with my family!

Then I also like to a add a bit of whimsy, innocence and fun for the little people who come to celebrate at our house. Usually it is an egg hunt outside. This year it was a basket hunt inside...sometimes weather dictates.

The day before Easter I prepared baskets. 

Easter Prep 2013-59 I took them up to the attic. Our little granddaughter calls our attic "The Hole". The boys call it their "Fort". You enter by a hobbit sized door  upstairs on a tiny balcony. After entering you make a sharp turn to the right and crawl way back. The kids and I have fixed it up with a lamp, some blankets, a large pillow and some books. I crawled way back and lined up the baskets.Easter Prep 2013-69

Easter day, after blowing up some peeps in the microwave (always a hit),...Easter 2013-26 Easter 2013-34 Easter 2013-36 ...it was time to find and follow the clues my husband had prepared.Easter 2013-43 Each child had a clue to read and follow. The older children helped with the reading and following of clues as needed.Easter 2013-46 Easter 2013-50 Easter 2013-51 Easter 2013-52 The last clue directed them into "The Hole"! Easter 2013-54 Easter 2013-56 Bravely they opened the door and crawled in!Easter 2013-57 Easter 2013-62

Tree Hollow is one of my favorite magical places to visit, and every magical place should have a Hole.
Whimsical indeed!
