The grandparents all sent a little Easter surprise for the kiddos. Nana and Papa sent these silly bunny masks and a cupcake making kit, so Saturday evening we made Easter cupcakes. We also made Resurrection rolls to eat for breakfast Sunday. It got too late so we decided to save the Easter egg coloring for Sunday. Grammy and Papa sent a little money and the kids put it with a little they had been saving for skateboards. They were so excited to get them and we had to go to FOUR stores on Saturday. Everyone had bought up all the cheap ones, and we were NOT buying $60 - $80 skateboards! They played on them quite a bit Saturday and I forgot to take any pictures!
Sunday morning the kids had a little surprise from the Easter Bunny.
Hollace got a shirt in her basket and said "Wow, this is so cute! I didn't know the Easter Bunny had such good taste. He must have a wife." Ha!
They quickly emptied their baskets and got ready to hunt eggs.
This year the Easter Bunny hid the eggs outside then it rained all morning. Luckily it wasn't cold, just wet. I think the he must have known this might happen and only hid the eggs around the patio area and not out in the wet, muddy grass.
I was watching from the dry patio so I only got these few pictures of the hunt.
(Yes, Thad is still in a pull-up. Only at night, he's just not dressed yet. He has actually been dry every morning lately and so we finally told him he could wear underwear to bed. He was so excited, but the first night he got in bed then changed his mind and wanted to put a pull up back on. Whatever.)
Ready for Church.
We are still visiting churches, so I sort of felt like everyone was looking at us like we were one of those families making their annual visit to church on Easter Sunday.
Look at Thad's expressions!
Another try outside........and Rhett decides to act like a goof ball.
Hollace would pose all day.
Checking out their loot......
Since we didn't have any family in town I didn't really want to make a huge meal for just us, so we decided to try out the Easter brunch the Country Club does every year. It was pretty AMAZING! Quite a feast! Lobster, shrimp, prime rib, several types of fish, chicken, SO many salads.....and the dessert bar was fabulous- and we didn't have to do any dishes! It was a good choice!
One last try at pictures by the parking lot.
We were hoping someone would come by that we could ask to take a picture of all of us, but no luck.
You'll just have to use your imagination and combine these two pictures.
This is how we all felt after the feast!
We planned on coloring Easter eggs that afternoon, but it was too nice of a day to be inside, so we ended up outside all day and ran out of time again!
We did do the Resurrection Eggs though.
Hope you had a wonderful Resurrection Day!!
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
In his great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead....."
