Easter is another day to us. We arent very religious, so we dont do that aspect. Jake will get a chocolate easter egg (do you guys do that in the US?) from us, but thats it.

We're not religious so we don't really do anything for Easter. DH mentioned maybe hiding plastic eggs around the house for Leah to find this year, so we'll see. The grandparents usually send Leah some candy and a small gift or something.

DH and I have not really decided what we are going to do. I want to color eggs with Drake and hide them because I remember when I was little that was always soo much fun!! We are not religious so there will be no "easter bunny" thing.

We will have an egg hunt with friends the Monday before Easter. DH and I are still trying to figure out how we are going to raise the kiddos religion-wise (he grew up Catholic and I had a weird hodge-podge of religiousness). I like the idea of doing an Easter basket and coloring eggs, but DD1 is still young enough that idk how much I'm going to do.

I haven't had the chance to do anything much for Easter. This will be our 1st year (we did have easter egg hunts when I was younger though!)

Not sure what we will do for Eve, she will only be 3 months old. I'll probably buy her a cute easter bunny toy though!

This year is a big year for me since I'll be confirmed in the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil mass. Other than that, I'll put together baskets for the girls, although they'll mostly be filled with books and toys since they're both too old for candy.
