The day before Easter we dyed eggs at our house with Jensen. We did this last year too and it is something she thinks is really cool. This year we had to make a trip to Target with a 2 week old to get all of our supplies. Unfortunately our trip was cut to the essentials because as soon as we got everyone in the cart, Owen flipped out and wouldn’t stop crying and Jensen was being a pill because she didn’t want to sit in the cart……stressful needless to say, especially at Target on a holiday weekend!! We did make it home with our egg dying kit and here are some of our pics!
Easter celebration was a little different this year because Laura and her family did not join us due to the fact she had just given birth to Erik 3 days prior!! I was happy though that on our way to mom and dad’s we stopped at Kris and Laura’s first to see our new little nephew! It is so exciting that our little boys are only two weeks apart!! I see joint b-day parties, sleepovers, great friendship and definitely TROUBLE in their future….especially because they each have sassy big sisters, HA!!
The rest of the family got together and had a yummy lunch and of course an egg hunt. We decided not to have a “big kid” hunt this year because not only were we missing Kris and Laura, but Tommy couldn’t join us either because he had to work…boo! So with such a chunk of our family missing it made sense that this year we would stuff the eggs and divide them among the families. Of course most of the eggs were given to Jensen so that she could have an egg hunt!
Here are pics from Jensen on her hunt. She was so excited and loved looking all over for eggs. She kept wanting to take papa or auntie or daddy with her around the yard as she hunted. While Jensen hunted for eggs Owen was in grammy’s arms getting lots of snuggles and kisses! Grandma is over the moon with her baby boys. Such a wonderful thing to see!
Come on papa, let’s go to the park!!
Though our celebration was a little different this year, it was still a nice day for some of us to get together and enjoy the company!! We hope all of you enjoyed a wonderful Easter celebration with your loved ones!!
