Easter 2013

Happy Easter!

We started our Good Friday with some Easter coloring, a trip to a fabric store that I never get to go to, the park, and lunch.  (What kind of business can they run with hours M-F 9-4?  I get to go once every few years!)  More on what I bought later.  Then, home for a nap and some egg dyeing.  Sam loves it.  I do too.

Sam got a kit from Build-a-Bear (thanks, MamaLinda!) so we used the drops rather than food coloring.  It also came with stickers and glitter!

Later, Ellie enjoyed dyeing her eggs too.

Saturday morning, Sam was heartbroken as I used the eggs in my potato salad.  But we enjoyed lunch with some Mauters over at the Atchisons house.

And, no Easter celebration would be complete without an egg hunt.

On Easter morning, Sam woke up very early to hunt for her basket.  She found it behind the french door in the entrance hall.  The night before, she told me that she wished the Easter Bunny would not hide it in the place he did last  year: on top of the china cabinet.  I’m surprised she remembered!

Ellie’s basket was hidden under the piano.

The Easter Bunny took it easy this year: some books, some candy, bubbles, and some hair accessories.

And unfortunately after this, the camera got a smudge on the lens, so the rest of the pictures are smudgy.

  1. Flip-flops and shorts on Easter weekend!!
    I remember when the Easter Bunny hid my basket outside in the backyard. His note with a clue said that it was somewhere cold… and it took me a very long time to find it.
