Our Easter 2014

Hope you had a wonderful Easter!

Our weekend festivities began with the dying of the eggs. Usually we do this a few days before Easter weekend, yet this year we decorated on Good Friday. The girls LOVE dying eggs!












Isabelle wrote a cute note for the bunny, so a couple eggs disappeared from the bowl later that night.

I’m always worn with cute notes like this, since they need a reply right? Yet, my daughter is 9 and knows my handwriting all too well. In fact, she’s pretty much got writing my signature down to an art {doh!}. My husband wrote the reply, with his left hand. I *think* we got away with it, this time anyway.  


Sunday morning started before 6am, and I watched them frantically run through the house finding eggs. There’s no actual photo proof of this morning, I was still half asleep while in the middle of the chaos.  Then I went back to bed, Zzzzzz.

Later that morning the girls discovered that there was also eggs hidden in the yard. This time I was more awake and caffeinated, so I was able to take some photos, though most are a blur of running madness. 




Then we had the massive dinner in the early afternoon, followed by  a turkey coma on the couch for pretty much the rest of the day. The good news is that I mastered season 1 of Downton Abby. Have you seen the series yet?

How was your Easter 2014?

    I love the journaling idea! Your girls are adorable and kudos to you for going to the trouble and mess of coloring the eggs themselves. Plastic eggs are easier but not memorable. You are making memories!

Luckily, I have learned a few tricks on quarantine and sanitization – she was the only one to get it. Knock on wood, I’ve been fairly lucky when it comes to sickness not passing through the entire house.  […]
