ducks and chicks

Ducks and chicks are next on everyone’s list of cutest Easter animals. When I was a teenager, I gave my sister a duckling for Easter, but I accidentally stepped on it and killed it. She was inconsolable! I had to drive her to the feed store when they opened the next day to get her another duck. Actually, I think I bought her 2 more. Anyway, I think it really stuck in her mind, because she now has a small farm where she breeds chickens, ducks, and turkeys. That’s why I made a duck potholder for her. Take a look at some adorable Easter bird designs:

One last posting for Easter craft ideas. When I was in 8th grade home economics class, I learned a simple craft made with Easter candy, and I’ve made them every year since then for my children and extended family.

April in San Antonio – Amazon Giveaway – Free Easter Pattern

Butterfly Baby Dress Crochet Pattern

easter

Unfortunately, our Houston mini vacation has been postponed due to Mick Jagger’s health. Disappointing for us, but I’m sure it’s more frustrating for the Rolling Stones. Hopefully he will heal quickly, and the tour will be rescheduled. Facebook rumors say it will be rescheduled for October, so we’ll see.

We also had tickets for the San Antonio Commanders final home game this weekend, but the Alliance of American Football abruptly shut down the league this week. It’s so disappointing for San Antonio football fans. We attended all the home games, and the fans were great! Texas is definitely football country.

From an entertainment standpoint, we definitely won’t be bored. April is definitely a good time of year to be in San Antonio. This weekend is the Poteet Strawberry Festival, which has always been a favorite for our family. Great music, carnival rides, and all the typical fair food including anything you can think of that is made of strawberries. If the rain holds off on Saturday, we will go see David Lee Garza y Los Musicales, one of my husband’s favorite Tejano bands.

Next week I’ll be getting the house ready for Easter. The Ferrel Family tradition is fajitas for Easter dinner – beef, chicken, and sausage. There will also be rice and beans, potato salad, guacamole, pico de gallo, tortillas, and I’m still working on ideas for a dessert to impress. Family, good food, children running in and out, and of course, cascarones, confetti eggs to crack on someone’s head.

My go-to gift for the children for Easter is a bunny bag filled with candy. The pattern is available in my Ravelry shop as a free download with any purchase through Easter.

My newest Easter pattern will be available only on the blog this month – Easter Bunny Scrubby using Red Heart Scrubby Sparkle. Make a few as hostess gifts, or add a couple to your teen’s Easter basket as a gag gift.
