Pre-Easter Festivities

We had a busy week leading up to Easter.

We had our usual visit to the nursing home with our friends.  I love how much our kids love this and look forward to it and expect it for every holiday.

I didn't get a prepared craft ahead of time, so I cut up some index cards the morning we were supposed to go visit, and told the girls to decorate them for Easter.  I was super impressed with Adeline's creations.

Lashes & curls.

And I still can't get over that I have one big enough to ride a bike around the block.  How'd that happen?

She was moved to a new class at BSF last week, so we chose a dress with her name on it to help her teachers out just a bit.  Hah!  She's pretty easy going, so she did great with the new classroom.  However, she did tell me, "I didn't learn anything about God, but we did go on a bear hunt!"

We played outside with Kaylor after KDO while we waited for their big sisters to get out of school.

That long dress tripped her up and made her fall and scrape her knee!  She wasn't too upset about it, though, because she knew she'd get a bandaid out of it.

Happy and Nana came to visit for Easter and brought fun Easter treats.  I'd just said, "let's put those confetti eggs away until we can go outside" when Whitt found one and smashed it on the floor.

Wasn't Nana creative with her candy box Easter baskets?

And my "Easter basket" has been some sort of bag or purse since I was in about high school.  This year it's a huge Jon Hart beach/pool bag.  I'm super excited!

On Saturday, we went to our church's helicopter egg drop.  We'd never been before and I thought it was so cool.  Whitt, however, was terrified of the helicopter.

That evening, we all went over to Shane & Juliet's house for a BBQ dinner on their deck.  Such a fun time with family!

We took a pink bunny cake and I loved how these cousins reminded me of me and my cousins when we were little.  Before we could even cut the cake they were all claiming certain body parts.  Adeline wanted the eyes & mouth, Murry wanted the teeth, and Annabel wanted the ears.  Since two grandmas were around, they made sure that everyone got what they wanted.

Little Man couldn't hang.  It had been a long day for him.
