I packed up all our Easter decor yesterday, it makes me sad. I love decorating for Easter just as much as Christmas. There is something about all the white and bright colors to ring in spring, you know? Plus, bunnies are cute! Now our coffee bar and dining room are looking sad. I need to figure out how I am going to decorate both areas for the months of no holidays!
Did you all have a good Easter? We spent most of our weekend with Chris’s family, and it was perfect. We hadn’t seen anyone except his parents in person in over a year, and it was long overdue. Our nieces and nephew all grew so much! Zoe is the youngest grandkid on both sides of our families, by a lot, but it is so nice seeing them all play with her and include her. She had so much fun!!!
Friday evening, Chris called me and asked if I wanted to go grab some Ironstone Pizza for dinner. HELL YES I DO! Zoe did not hesitate to go run and grab her shoes when she heard me say Ironstone on the phone. There is no pizza place anywhere around here that is quite as good as theirs.
Saturday morning we started with an egg hunt after breakfast. Trying to spread the fun out over two days. I stuffed the eggs with little trinkets, erasers, rings and stickers. I never was real big on doing lots of candy for Easter, or any holiday for that matter.
When we came back in, we decided to make cookies before we headed out, planning to share some with his family. Zoe had wanted to cut out some eggs and paint them to hand out. She also colored a few coloring sheets, but I think we forgot to take those.
Zoe got to dye eggs for the first time ever with her cousins. We didn’t really do this growing up, but I definitely hope to do it with Zoe every year. The older kids were getting really creative with their eggs, they were cracking me up. My SIL and Zoe did these.
After we left Chris’s parents house that evening, we ordered Papa Sal’s to go, knowing we had a busy evening ahead of building a Frozen Jeep and getting all the Easter basket things ready. I cant really take any credit for the Jeep, it was all Chris. I just put the stickers on at the end. Why can’t the stickers already be on??? Or paint the graphics on??? They are the worst.
Finally, we settled in with our pasta and some Stabler!!!!!! So glad to see him back on SVU and his new show!
Sunday morning, Zoe opened her Easter basket and I made bunny shaped cinnamon rolls for breakfast. They turned out pretty cute, and obviously taste better as bunnies! We showered and got ready, and then let her ride her Jeep outside for a few minutes before we headed back over to Chris’s parents house.
And in true fashion, I forgot to take pictures on our porch before we left…and didn’t really take many outside of these selfies later in the day. Zoe had me laughing with her silly faces, not wanting to be serious.
The weather was gorgeous, and it was so nice getting to spend some time with family. I hope you all had a great Easter weekend as well.
