Once we got our house ready for Easter and Spring, I found that we were in a situation very similar to Christmas with our diplo-tot asking “where are my Easter decorations?”. Hmmm…I didn’t know that getting seasonal would be a full on family affair but we had a lot of fun with her holiday room so why not?
We didn’t go as big with this one this time but in going through our decorations from years past, I found that we still had plenty of eggs in her favorite hue of pink…She and I set off to the florist where she picked out her own bunch of cherry blossoms and hung the eggs all herself.
Then we sorted out all her stuffed animals and picked out the most “Easter-y” ones, the little bunnies and rabbits and a couple of lambs that we surfaced too. Together this like flock of springtime friends sat guard over her bookcase, which gave us a bit of an opportunity to work in some spring cleaning in her room too.
This wasn’t a huge undertaking, and apart from the blossoms at the store, not much of an investment but it seemed to make her happy to be part of the holiday preparations in her own way. It makes me smile every time I walk by it. Easter is more than just the day at our house, though I realize its’ a bit odd to continue posting on it a week after. Maybe because the Ambassador had his Easter Egg hunt this weekend it seems like everyone is celebrating just a bit longer this year around here. Our decorations will stay up for a while longer but soon they’ll get put away in their special boxes. When they do resurface again, whether next year or even the year after, I have a feeling we’ll be in a place much different than Copenhagen, but these little touches will still make us feel like we’re at home.
