Last year I began a tradition with my girls and I want to share it with you all. I am all about traditions and I love passing things down from one generation to the next. It doesn't even have to be big things like baking Christmas cookies (which, of course, I do) or making home made jam (check). I am the proud mother of two delightful girls. They like most girly type things...dolls, hair bows, and dresses but, they are also quite tomboys. They are often found climbing in the trees or slopping in the mud. I was thrilled when they were all excited about the Easter Bunny giving their dolls a tea party. Someone had told me about this and she actually did it with her two boys and they LOVED it!!! Try it y'all...I swear it is fun. You put out a cute little placemat or small blanket and set out either your best china (which I do NOT) or the kids tea set (much better). You gather up their favorite dolls, animals, bunnies and place them around the mat. The fun is in the finding the tea party. We hide it somewhere in the house and it is never in the same spot. I think my kids love it more than the plastic eggs filled with candy. Happy Easter!!!
