Easter Festivites

Here's a wrap up of our Easter weekend.

The Easter Bunny comes on Saturday at our house.
The kids were so good and didn't delve in until I came out in the morning.  They had already been up for a while and just watched cartoons.  So patient!

Saturday was such a beautiful day.  I was able to go for a run with a good friend in the morning and then the rest of the day was spent outside with yard work...and yard play.  Abby desperately wanted to read to someone outside on the grass.  Matt obliged.

My two sweet cousins came and brought the kids an Easter surprise which included bubbles.  Who doesn't love a good bubble session?  It was so good for Ben to get out and run around in the grass.  He really hasn't done that a whole lot in his life.  I've resolved to let him do it more this summer closed safely in our backyard.  First I have to get our window wells covered.
Anyway, thank you so much Sarah and Rebecca!  You're always so sweet to remember the kids.

Andy was a very hard worker...our fire pit area is really coming together!

After the kids asked me all day for one I was finally able to put together a quick egg hunt downstairs.  (One blog I follow said that their tradition is to do a night hunt with flashlights.  How fun!  Maybe some year).
Anyway, the kids seemed happy with this and Josh very thoughtfully thanked me for it the next morning.

Here's my cute family before church the next day.  I gave up on tucking Matt's shirt in a long time ago.  It's just not even worth it to try anymore.
His tie is usually that spiffy looking too...he likes to dress himself...what can I say?
Oh boy do I love my cuties!  Andy's one of my cuties too :)

I neglected to add this picture to my last post of Easter crafts. 

Last year, Abby's classmates were each assigned a letter to dress up as for an Alphabet Parade.  Abby was assigned "E".  It was right before Easter so this is what I came up with.  It was fun and fast and I'm glad that she was happy with it.

This last picture is just kind of funny.  The kids made a fort downstairs and Sunday night I found these "Rules for the Fort" on my craft counter. 

My favorite is #3...No making fun of clubhouse name!

Hope everyone else had a beautiful Easter.

  1. I tried to comment last night and blogger wouldn't let me. Let's hope this is more successful.
    Your posts always leave me smiling. What fun activities all weekend. Love Abby reading to Matt, Ben with his basket, Josh showing off the "golden egg". Great looking family--does Andy know he is "a cutie"?
    Gotta love those fort rules! Good times! : )
