|Heirloom eggs, thanks to our family for kicking off this tradition.|

-We have a family Easter basket (I wove it myself - no seriously - I used to teach basket-weaving) complete with silk lining made from leftover scraps of fabric.
-The family basket contains a handmade Easter journal in a silk pouch. The journal is to write down who was at our festivities and what we did. There's also room for photos.
-Each family member painted a wooden egg. Year after year we can use them for egg hunts.
-I decided that chocolate babka will be my staple Easter treat for dessert at brunch each year (husband approved, of course :) It is amazingly delicious, like a chocolate-filled croissant. It was a hit!
So there you have it, a few new traditions of our own. What are some of your favorite Easter traditions?
