Easter impressions

To me, Easter celebrations mean family gatherings complete with eating lots of food for afternoons on end.

It is also an occasion to look around and see the little things that brighten up the house, like these flowers my mother had at home and whose colour just screams Easter to me.

Yellows, oranges, light greens ; friendly colours.

It is the time when my brother and I got spoiled with a cute chocolate bunny. Getting spoiled like this by your mother never gets old.

It was almost a pity to eat it. Almost.

Like most years, Easter is also the occasion to see parts of the family again. This year was no different, as I was invited for long lunches at at by mother's cousin on Sunday and by one of my cousins on Monday (Easter Monday is also a free day here, lucky us).

The biggest surpise is always to see how much the children have changed since the last time I saw them.

I have a 5-year old cousin, one of the sweetest little boys you could meet. This portrait isn't really flattering nor is it accurate, but it was the best I could do with a subject that has a portrait thwarting super sense or something like that.

How else can you explain that this fidgety boy would decide to scratch his nose, rub his eyes, bite his lip at the exact times when I got to those parts of the portrait?
