And just like that Easter 2019 is done and dusted again… next up birthdays and before we know it Christmas trees will go up again!
My two loves these special holidays, and both still believes in the Easter bunny, but I suspect not too long until Jamie adds 2 and 2 together… this year he told me about how the holiday is not about the Easter eggs and bunny, but about Jesus dying for our sins.
Before I write about our Easter weekend, just look at how these two are growing up… Jamie into a real young man, and Shae from inside my belly to big girl. It’s amazing to see and experience.
We had a lovely, chilled Easter at home. We didn’t feel like doing much, so it was a family weekend with quality time spent together.
Friday morning I took them to the local mall where Beacon did an Easter Egg Hunt, the kids enjoyed it and went home with a box of Easter eggs each. They had to visit different shops in the mall, collect stickers and rewarded with the easter eggs when done.
On Saturday later afternoon, after we watched Hop, I realised that they are predicting rain for Sunday and we quickly decided to do the Easter Egg hunt, so hubby and the kids took Dexter for a walk while I pretended to cook dinner, but actually hid the treats. I called hubby telling him that they have to hurry home because I just saw the Easter bunny hopping by.
Oh my, they were home in two minutes, very excited.
They loved searching for their eggs, not that I made it very hard for them.
The rest of the weekend we were blessed with constant, soft rain – was so lovely. Actually rained up to yesterday morning. PE still needs the rain, so very grateful for it.
Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend too!
