Easter at the Koons'

Sophia thought she was so big joining in the egg-dyeing festivities.
 

Hot cross buns: a tradition that my taste buds will not let me give up. Our favorite is Martha's version with dried cherries and nutmeg.
 

This year I was not going to do "Resurrection Rolls." But the kids wouldn't let me. So on Saturday afternoon I got a can of crescent roll dough and we wrapped marshmallows to illustrate the empty tomb. Clara's best friend Eden joined us. The kids just love this.
 
 
 
 

While Meredith is too cool to let her mom fix her hair up in curlers, Clara agreed that I could. She was too cute!
 

When I took out the curlers, Kevin gave me this look that said, "What did you do to my daughter?" I thought it was adorable. Clara liked it too.
 
 

 
 

Aunt Beth made this adorable bunny.
 

 
 

When the guys hid the eggs, they tied one egg to some fishing line. When Meredith went to pick it up, Colin reeled it in. Hysterical! The kids thought it was so funny.
 

Here's Uncle Colin with his fishing pole. :)
 
 

Kevin's mom found this edible Easter basket grass that was a HUGE hit. In fact, the neighbor kids were all begging to have some today. I can't believe it took them this long to make edible grass! It has a subtle fruit flavor and is the texture of straw, if you go for that kind of thing. Sophia clearly does. :)

Clara looked adorable! And she brought back memories from my childhood -- I LOVED having my hair put up in curlers overnight. We always did it for holidays.

Edible grass!!! never heard of it but will have to look next year!

It's nice to see that others are keeping the hot cross bun tradition alive.
