A Holiday Where You Get Candy

Q-ster explained today that Easter is the only Holiday where you get candy. We queried back, "How about Halloween? Or Valentine's Day?" And apparently even St. Patrick's Day has joined the treat crew. He was happy to change his theory and declare that every holiday included candy. How could a day get any better than that?

We hid eggs around the house, mostly filled with those multi-colored goldfish crackers that look painfully artificial on ordinary days, but seem positively gentle during the Easter mayhem. The boys scampered about and ate their way through all the goldfish, finding the occasional jelly bean and one chocolate bunny for each of them. This was the first year that Buster got the concept of an egg hunt, and he was pretty excited to join his big brother.

Next year, I'm determined to make Peep garlands. Aren't these delightful? Those of you who remember how well my felt Christmas tree ornament project went . . . or didn't go . . . since I finished exactly half of a snowman, are free to suggest that I contact the artist and try to buy some from her instead.

Love those peep garlands! And I think the goldfish was a brilliant idea. I had a similar one ... at about 4 p.m. on Easter Sunday. Oh well.

I love those garlands!

And I will make no recommendations either way, as I have no leg to stand on. My living room is a veritable graveyard of half-finished craft projects that I decided I could do myself.

Those are so cute! I'd never end up finishing them myself though :)
