We had 2 Easters this year, one with my family and one with James' dads side of the family. On Saturday our family went up to my parents house. We ate a yummy dinner, dyed eggs, played a long game of dice (also known as Farkle) had an egg hunt for Chloe and another one for the adults and played a crazy game of kickball/dodgeball with all the new bouncy balls Chloe got for Easter (like 5 balls, seriously). We even took turns pulling Chloe around the big yard in her wagon for about an hour. My mom got Chloe this adorable pink Easter dress. I loved how it swooshed and bubbled out and it looked like a little bell moving side to side when she walked. Chloe actually "hunted" for eggs. We really just threw about 24 eggs out in the middle of the yard and made it really easy for her. She held her basket the whole time and would pick up each egg and place them in the basket. She would loose interest about every 3 eggs, then come back to it. Her egg hunt took a little while to finish and we all had to help bring her attention back to the eggs. It was fun spending time with my family.
|My mom found this cool way to dye eggs for Easter. You actually dye the egg white, not the shell.|
On Sunday, we went to church, which was AWESOME. I needed it so much! Chloe had a big melt down at breakfast in Coffee Bean and I may have cried a little, so just being at church and feeling His presence really helped. We went to James' dads house after church and met up with all his siblings and there kids. They had another little Easter hunt for the babies, Chloe was definitely not into this time and just looked at the eggs, then walked away. They then had an adult egg hunt for all of the siblings. James dad is a master egg hider and it took all of us (8 total) over an hour to find all the eggs. We ate another big family dinner and then just relaxed the rest of the night. James' step mom brought down James' sisters toy stroller from when she was little. Chloe was in love. She pushed that stroller everywhere. I can't wait until Chloe is a little older and I can hide her Easter basket and eggs around the house and she will really be into it!
All in all it was a great Easter surrounded with family and love.
