Hoppy Easter everyone!
Let's begin this post with my EPIC Easter mom fail!!!! If you read my post last week, here, I was all set to go for Easter until Friday.... While Logan and I ran out to check a couch out that we were hoping to buy for the lake, I let the littles have my phone to watch a video of Miss. H's performance from the night before. When we returned to the car, Miss. A informed us that they had seen a bunch of Easter pictures and wanted to know what they were!!!! Can you believe my luck?!? Not knowing what to say, we choose to ignore them and their comment. On Saturday I spent the day running around, returning and buying all new stuff so that it looked nothing like the pictures they had seen. Sigh. The things we do for our children and in the name of keeping their innocence just a little bit longer. (oh, and I also lost the Starbucks GC I purchased for my nephew, so lesson learned: don't bother being on top of Easter).
Apart from the little hiccup above we had a fantastic long weekend. What I love most about these holidays is that it encourages us to just be with family and do fun little things. Our list of fun things included:
Coloring eggs with a friend
Coloring more eggs on our own
Having egg wars and eating our year quota of egg salad sandwiches
Visiting two great-grandmas, two sets of grandparents, aunt, uncle, one baby cousin, and one teen cousin via telephone
An hour long Easter Egg Hunt that took us outdoor into fresh snow
Annual pancake and chocolate breakfast
Hours of games including ping pong, darts, air hockey, horse racing
One last snowman of the season
