It was a crazy, low key Easter. I don't think our family has ever been left to our own devices for Easter before. No ward party. Half of my family out of town, so no big family party.
Wait a minute...are we even capable of celebrating a holiday all on our own? What do people without family nearby do, I wonder....
We had a nice, little, tiny, sweet Easter. I kind of liked it...
We colored Easter eggs by ourselves, alone. Some of them started out green or brown, thanks to the Andersons who donated fresh eggs from actual chickens;) Yum.
two of them were tiny, and Abigail called them baby eggs. She thought they were the greatest things ever. Created just for her.
We put Abs to bed and had a nightime egg hunt for Kindyl, Mitchell, and Brenley. With flashlights, (or head reading lamps)
Easter Sunday is officially one of the few times I am grateful for 12:30 church
Bren and Abigelli danced around after they got dressed. They couldn't wait to put on their Easter dresses!
Abigail's dress was a little plain so I had to spice it up with a sash and a flower clip. She matches the whole black and white Easter theme I was going for b etter this way. And of course there were hair accessories to make for all 4 of the girls.
This is why I have mostly daughters. They are alot more fun to dress up!
We took the kids outside to pull some teeth, I mean take some pics. The lighting wasn't great out there.
It was a little better inside...
We may or may not have bribed the baby with Easter candy in this shot....
Abigail was especially cranky and had a hard time sitting through sacrament meeting which, as mentioned above, starts at nap time. O.k, she didn't sit through sacrament meeting at all. I was skeptical about putting her in nursery instead of home to bed. But she loves nursery, and was fabulous for them.
Church was lovely, and all of the kids were able to tell me what they learned about the atonement.
When we got home, the kids refilled their eggs and gave Abigail her own massive egg hunt. She didn't mind that most of the eggs were filled with individual fruit snacks. It was all about the thrill of the hunt for her.
What? Yes we did. We let the grass grow out on purpose to make the Easter hunt more interesting....that's right.
