Easterness

May 2, 2014
Easter is one of my favorite holidays, I think because it's so low key and involves some of my most favorite foods (ham, jello eggs, & chocolate).  And not to mention new beginnings and the resurrection. :)

I planned to do a few Family Home Evenings on why we celebrate Easter, but my current state kind of got in the way.  Luckily the church released this awesome video, which we watched and talked about multiple times.



Gina and I organized our annual Neighborhood Egg Hunt.  I swear every year the kids multiply.  

This Year

4 Years Ago




Crazy, isn't it!  Luckily I don't mind the crazy crowds...most days. 

And could these 2 be any cuter?  They've pretty much been bff's since they were 2.



Crew was in heaven...he'd find an egg, eat the candy and then move on to the next one.  


Pretty sure they ate all their candy before we came inside. Which is the way I like it.  


I was tempted Easter Morning to make them wait until after church to find their baskets, since we had church at 9:00.  But, I realized that'd be pretty lame, so instead I just set my alarm for 30 min earlier than normal.  Totally worth it.


The favorite candy this year...little chocolate bunny.  Apparently the Easter Bunny had never brought them before.  

"ELMO!"


We even had a few minutes to spare before church and got a few pictures snapped.



Easter Dinner is probably my favorite holiday meal...but due to my nausea and tendency to puke, I had to keep it simple.  Meaning store bought dessert, no deviled eggs, only 2 flavors of Jello eggs, and Company Potatoes instead of mashed.  The short cuts worked and I was mostly able to enjoy it.  Plus, eating on the deck maybe it even better.



The poor kids didn't even get to dye easter eggs this year, but did they even ask or care?  Nope.  Thank goodness, because the last thing I needed was to feel mom guilt.  :)
