Miss A discovered the waving of the palms on Sunday while wearing one of her Easter dresses.
No, I didn’t make the dresses. I didn’t even call on my mom the seamstress.
I ordered two of two different dresses on Etsy. Sewing ladies love me. I am sucker. I don’t sew because…I never listened to my mother when it came time for sewing lessons. So today because of my stubbornness, I pay for sewing…unless of course my mom is sewing. Then I just give her lots of hugs and thank you’s.
But back to the palms.
On Palm Sunday in Christian churches, it is a ritual and tradition to wave the palms, symbolizing welcoming Jesus’s return to Jerusalem on a donkey in the last days of His life. Our girls waved the palms on Sunday in church with other young kids and returned home with a few to continue waving.
Palm waving is serious business the girls learned and pretty dresses make it that much more fun.
This is a close up of Easter Dress #1. The damask print with the pink smocked bunnies are adorable. I’ll share Easter Dress #2 post Easter Sunday.
Aside from palm waving and bunny smocked Easter dresses, another Easter tradition I am looking forward to eating later this week is my Grandma Nola’s Hot Cross Buns. I had plotted and planned to bake my own batch this past weekend but ran out of time which really means that I actually bought all ingredients and then opted for a nap. I had aspirations to link up today with my Two Maids A Milking friends for their baking link up. Instead, my mouth is still watering at the Hot Cross Buns recipe and all the recipes shared on Two Maids A Milking.
What are your Easter traditions you are honoring or celebrating this week?
