Howdy, y’all. I am finally getting around to part two of the Easter photos (see part one here if you missed it). The last week has been a little crazy as Little Miss has been pretty sick (I will try to give the details when I write her 16 month update, hopefully this week). Luckily, she seems to be on the road to recovery, and I am using her naptime to blog even though there are 289357982372 other things I should be doing (aren’t there always? Sigh!).
After leaving Concord on the Saturday before Easter, we headed to Lake Norman to spend some time with my family. We laid low all afternoon, but that evening the kids (and Bek, Kyle & Miki) dyed some eggs. Aunt Bekah helped H dye a few before she went to bed and she loved it (again)!
I forgot to take a pic of the finished product, but trust me when I say they were beautiful. ;)
The next morning was Easter, and church was an hour earlier than usual, so we (of course) had to wake Hadley up. She was still pretty sleepy when she saw her Easter basket, but she loved her bunny, which we weren’t too surprised at since her stuffed animal obsession is still going strong.
Did I mention she was still half asleep?! ;)
We headed off to church at UGUMC, and after a great service (which just so happened to be Daddy’s last Easter service at UG…*tear*), we went back to the lake for a yummy lunch and more fun with the family. Of course before they changed out of their pretty Easter dresses, I had to snap a few photos of the girls.
Take two of H with her Easter basket:
I had been collecting things for her Easter basket since Christmas… she got: some play clothes, several animals for her Little People Zoo Talkers toy (have I mentioned how much we love this toy?!), a few (classic) Disney movies, a beach towel, a basketball hoop for the tub, and of course, a stuffed bunny.
After H’s nap, the kiddos decided to do a little Easter egg hunt. H was a pro since it was her 3rd hunt…she loved it!
The bunny ears. :)
Aunt Jennifer came over later that night and brought H yet another Easter basket full of goodies. (Side note: example # 350892305982309582 of how just having a nice camera does not guarantee good photos… I really should teach Jon how to use it!)
We finished off the night with a good old fashioned game of family Twister. Just lol. :)
I would say that Easter weekend was a real “slam dunk”! (Ba-dum-chh!) (How do you even spell that?!)
Seriously though, we had a very happy and blessed Easter full of family time and fun. We are so lucky to be making such wonderful memories!
