We had a pretty relaxed Easter this year. Rett has social skills every Saturday so we stayed in town so he wouldn’t have to miss that. We were hoping to be able to go to Steeplechase but between social skills and some nasty rain, it didn’t happen.
On Saturday night, the neighborhood had a little Easter hunt that we took the kids to. We ate pizza and they splashed in puddles in their rain boots and got completely soaked and muddy. I had to make Rett stop picking up eggs because I’m pretty sure we got more than our fair share. He’s apparently competitive when it comes to egg collecting.
I used the eggs we got for Saturday’s egg hunt to stuff our Easter baskets. Mostly gummies, sweet tarts and starbursts. My kids aren’t much into chocolate anyway. I made an awesome french toast recipe you can find here . It was so nice to put that together the night before and just pop it in the oven. The kids came down and dug into their goodies. Then we got down to the egg dyeing.
Yah…. Thad wasn’t included this year. Poor third children.
No matter how many times we told her, she wouldn’t keep her fingers out of the egg dye.
Our finished products turned out pretty. Despite half of them coming out cracked. That’s how it goes when you have 2 kids 5 and under.
Tom had to work till 4am and then back up at 7 to try to finish up so we decided to let the kids watch a movie while we took a cat nap. Then we took the kids to Home Depot and bought some flowers for the flower beds.
Then we actually cooked an Easter meal. Us, we’re adults! We fixed ham and rolls, sweet potatoes and mashed potatoes and even a carrot cake. We were impressed with ourselves.
We finally decided maybe the kids should hunt eggs for Easter.
Thad wasn’t much into egg hunting. I think he found 2.
And of course we added in a little bit of 2 year old fun with a fit thrown into his Easter basket.
Overall it was a great day!
