Easter is this Sunday and I’m excited to spend the day attending church and being with my family. We’ll have an Easter egg hunt, too, with a few goodies for the kids that I’m sure they’ll like. Besides going to church, which is the whole reason for the season, our family has a few Easter traditions that fill me with Easter joy. Here they are:
It might not be Pin-worthy or Martha Stewart approved, but that doesn’t matter to us. My kids and I love making a bunny cake out of boxed mix and frosting. So fun! It’s easy, too. But you guessed that didn’t you? Otherwise *I* wouldn’t make it, right?
If you’d like some official instructions on how to make the bunny with a bow tie shape, then refer to the pictures here.
My kids may not visit the Easter Bunny anymore, but our kitten does. Scooter, 6 months old, made her first visit to the Easter Bunny this past weekend. The tradition started a couple years ago when we took our beloved Mr. Tabbers to meet the Easter Bunny. His picture with the Easter Bunny is a treasured family heirloom now. So we had to take Scooter.
A Greyhound rescue organization holds the event at a local pet store. For a donation to their charity, you and your pet can get a picture with the Easter Bunny. Scooter wasn’t so sure at first:
But, she warmed up (okay, just a little) and look how cute this picture turned out:
Easter is about the joy of the resurrection which means it’s okay to be happy on Easter. And what makes me happiest? My family, eating without gaining weight, and not hearing the dentist say, “hmm” during my checkup. Oh, wait, I was talking about what makes me happiest at Easter. Humor!

May you have Easter Joy this year! Do you have any special Easter traditions? I’d love to hear!
