I must say that it was a very relaxing (as relaxing as having 3 kids can be) Easter for us this year. We stayed home and Gigi and Poppy came over for steaks!
Gigi is really in to the Easter egg dyeing…THANK GOODNESS because mommy is not a huge fan. I like to take pictures while she mans the egg coloring station.
Does egg dyeing stress anyone else out? Phew.
I can’t even begin to think of all the cute and creative egg dyeing ideas on Pinterest…that would just send me right over the edge.
We use a dozen eggs and the $2 kit from Walmart and call it a day.
P was actually old enough this year to control his egg dyeing ability.
Happy “type A” heart.
Not so much.
You see that vein popping out of his neck? That’s because he was screaming “MEEEEEEEEEE!! MEEEEEEE!”
He really wanted to do it himself folks. I swear he was terrified he wasn’t going to get a turn.
Even Gigi was nervous…
Ha! Those two pictures say it all. Her face was probably saying what my mouth was screaming.
This year I had big ambitions of ordering really cute personalized Easter baskets from PBK…and then…well then I realized we were 6 days from Easter and still Easter basket-less.
Target saved the day with these adorable blue and green baskets!
Easter morning…matching baskets filled with goodies!
They were all trying to show me what they got at the same time!!
“Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!”
This year the Easter bunny hid 59 eggs. And here’s the best part. Remember the stressful Easter egg dying process that makes me want to go jump off a cliff…the lovely Easter bunny FORGOT to hide those eggs. Makes total sense.
It would have helped me out too because I was totally worried that with an “odd” number of eggs…we would have a wrestling match over that 59th egg.
To my surprise these boys played like nice bunnies when it came to hunting their eggs. *shocked*
I am still wondering how I got stuck cleaning up the aftermath though?
How was your Easter? Am I alone in the whole “Easter egg dyeing sucks” mentality?
Did you get a chance to celebrate the true meaning of Easter? I know we had one of the best services at church Easter Sunday! I hope, between dyeing eggs and eating candy, you had time to celebrate Him!
Today I’m linking up with Kelly’s Korner for Show Us Your Life – Moms of Boys! I figured this post is a great example of “a day in the life’ of a mom with boys!
Don’t forget to pop over and watch my video for the Get Rich Slowly video contest! PLEASE! The more views the better chance I will have at winning. Ok, if I’m being honest…I’ll never win. But, I would like to get more views than my husband (insert evil laugh). 🙂 Kidding kidding.
