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.

We had a great Easter this year! We stayed at home and did Easter crafts on Good Friday (both girls were out of school). We dyed eggs, made Easter Egg Hunt cookies and decorated a tree on Holy Saturday. The Easter Bunny hid baskets this year, so after some early morning hunting (for Sam at least), the girls dug through their baskets then we skirted off to church. We had to take the obligatory family picture (which I think had some tears) then we hunted for Easter Eggs all day. And I mean all. day. It was relaxing and fun to spend the day outside playing.

I decided to dye eggs this year. As a kid, I always remember doing it with our eggs to be deviled. I used regular food coloring, so they turned out bright! Sam had a ball!
