Day 2734 - Did someone say it's Easter?

Can you believe Easter has actually snuck up on me! 


It seems almost impossible given hot cross buns and Easter eggs have been apparently gracing our stores since February, but I  have honestly forgotten that Easter is so close. Nor have I really noticed the promotions surrounding our next Christian holiday.

The fact that it's next weekend astounds me.



That's more of a symptom of my year and how rushed it's been from the get-go, than it is about Easter being a tip-toeing sneak.

So here we are in Easter week and I've done nothing to plan for it.

The good news is there are these things called shops that you can actually walk into and buy stuff, so I guess I've still got time for that.

The other good news is that we'll head to my parents house next Saturday so there'll be someone else to do the cooking and festive preparations.

Oh, and if I feel like putting my twice a year Catholic hat on, I could probably wander off to Mum and Dad's church next Sunday morning.

I think perhaps the majority of my "panic" is coming from that fact that there may not be any winter pyjamas left.  Because everyone gets pyjamas for Easter, don't they?

I'm not sure when I started the whole Pyjama for Easter tradition, but I am pretty sure it was around my daughter's first Easter in 2000.

Easter is the turning point for the cold weather in Canberra and seems to be the point in which we all panic and race out and buy jumpers, trackies and flannel PJs to keep our ever growing kids warm (especially around the tummies, wrists and ankles which seem suddenly exposed).

So each year my kids get PJs for Easter from us with a few eggs left by the bunny.  It doesn't matter how old they get, that tradition continues.

Which means this week I'll be dashing out to find Pyjamas that are long enough for a 6 foot girl (she may end up with some grandad PJs from the men's section) and something for the boy who is too grown up for the kids stuff, but not yet big enough for the men's stuff (do I dare get his from the women's section?).

Are you ready for Easter?

Does anyone else do the whole PJ thing?

What are your plans for next weekend?

 
This post prompted by Denyse Whelan Blogs which is why I suddenly realised it was Easter ... because the prompt for today says "Easter"  (duh!)

  1. I did go pj shopping with my kids this week, although it wasn't specifically for an Easter present we did end up getting my bunny mad daughter some gorgeous bunny themed pjs from Peter Alexander!

  2. Oh Leanne yes!! Everyone gets winter PJs for Easter. I did as a child and also for my children and now for my grandson. I remember being in hospital for Easter when my daughter was born and it is her 36th birthday on Good Friday this year. Happy Easter and thanks for the memories.

  3. Lol! I have bought pyjamas for Easter!! Every child has a cute set tucked away in my unopened Target box!
    I am yet to do the egg shopping. It's a bit difficult with the kids on holidays.

  4. We used to do the PJ thing as well on some occasions then as grandkids came along, I think we contributed towards them as well. I like that you realised the shops are open..but then again not on Good Friday nor Easter Sunday in NSW (as far as I know) ...but then again, in some holiday areas (and they class where we are now as such) then they're open..I get confused. Thanks for linking up for #lifethisweek 15/52. Next week is 'A Special Memory'.

  5. You get PJ's for Easter? Wow, we got chocolate! I know, you probably also get chocolate too. We got PJ's at Christmas from one Aunty every year. Apart from that, Easter has snuck up on me as well this year. I got a text from dad directing me to go to Church and I was like "surely Easter's ages away". Shh, don't tell him, I'm not going to church either.
    Happy Easter to you and your family!

  6. Easter has certainly snuck up on me this year! I haven't even bought my kids a gift!!! And with them home on school holidays, it is a bit more challenging! I usually gets some chocolate eggs for a small hunt on Sunday morning, as well as either pj's or a winter jacket, book, or movie voucher. Happy Easter Leanne!
