Sorry, yes another holiday thread but here's why.
DH and I have spent the last 8 years alone for Christmas and Easter. If not alone, very quiet and this is why we are building up our family hopefully to 4 children. We want a big family full of tradition. Christmas and Easter to be all about food, family and laughter. I know it sounds cheesy but it's a dream we both share. It's something we both have never had and find it quite sad
Our DD's will never go through what we have. We want life to be full of magic and excitement around these times.
Okay so I have Christmas sorted and can't wait to do that this year with our new little member but Easter? What does everyone do? What does everyone eat? I know it's no meat on Good Friday but that's it.
What do you do that's extra special for the kids? Do they look forward to Easter? Do you allow them chocolate? Do you do a big lunch or dinner and what day?
Sorry for all the Q's but I have no clue and although it's still only the 3 of us I want to start it now something big. I want to start the tradition this year as DD understands now.
Wishing I had a big extended family or wishing DH's family were at least coming to this side of the world
