Easter 2013

Twas the night before Easter, and all through the house… the dresses were hung by the chimney with care!

I have only bought the girls “Easter dresses” once before.  It was about time!

They were thrilled by both the dresses and the baskets.  (In case you were wondering, I told the Easter bunny my little dude didn’t need a basket until next year!)

For breakfast, I tried out some homemade bunny “pop tarts.”  I used a recipe for a coffee cake dough.  I think next time I’ll simply buy a pie crust.  But, the girls enjoyed them!

After breakfast and church, we stopped to take a few pictures.  This tiny little corner has proved a great place for spring pictures — you can’t even tell it’s a small corner of a busy street!

And then it was time for the Easter egg hunt… Sadly, little guy wanted to take a nap.  Next year, buddy… next year!

Just look what we found when we came in:

My parents were originally going to be down here for Easter.  And, we would have loved to have them.  We thought of inviting friends.  And, we declined a few offers to go to other friends.  In the end, we decided a simple family day would be best.  And, it was the best.  The big kids even watched a movie in the afternoon while Malachi, Daniel, and I got a nap!  But here’s what I love about my husband.  He still went to a lot of work over dinner… just for our family!  It was so special.
