April 1, 2018 | Easter landed on April Fools Day this year — and it was freezing cold! E woke up rather early and climbed into bed with her new Turquoise Bunny, where I snapped a photo or two. She had to wait for us to be ready for our own egg hunt downstairs, and see what the Easter Bunny had brought her!
Then it was time for another egg-hunt…the Bunny just leaves a few special eggs at our house, and it was a challenging hunt around the main floor for sure!
Knowing we had a big afternoon, I didn’t attend mass with Dave. Pregnancy-discomfort is REAL PEOPLE. I just didn’t know if I could do the amount of standing in one spot that church required, so I dressed her (super-warm) and then asked her for a quick photo. I’ve had this dress for over a year, hoping she would wear it for this Easter! Little did I know she would need tights, winter boots, and a cardigan thanks to the weather!
Then it was time to gather with the family — full celebration for Grandma’s 85th birthday, wasabi pickles, and tons of food. And thanks to sickness (O & B), a new baby (C & new-C) the only hunters this year were E AND S. So crazy! The amount of stuff they each gathered was staggering…glad they were able to bring things home to their cousins… 🙂 And this was the year of the new marker-egg-decorating-contraption that the adults enjoyed as much as the kids. I had to photograph the egg that made me laugh the most.
