This weekend we had some Easter fun. Saturday morning we headed to Freeman Park for Bartlett's Easter Egg hunt. Some friends from church were there, so that was an extra treat. The kids were split up because of their age, so I took Turner and Daddy went with Maddie. Turner got a lot of eggs and was so proud of himself!! Maddie was more concerned about the candy that had fallen out of the eggs. So her basket contained about 3 eggs and then a bunch of candy:) Both kids got their face painted with bunnies that matched their shirts! I loved their matching outfits and plan on letting them wear them a bunch this next week! It was a fun outing and the kids were excited to hunt some eggs.
The kids and I "egged" some of our friends this past and Maddie has been dying to be able to get some of her own. We went to Blake and Natalie's house and hid a dozen candy filled eggs in their front yard while they were gone. We left a note on their front door saying they had been "egged" and it was their turn to do it to someone else. The kids had SO much fun hiding those eggs and sneaking around. It was an idea I got off Pinterest and something we will definitely continue to do in the future.
Today after church the kids and I made Birds nests to give to their teachers at church and school for a little Easter happy. Another pinterest idea-haystacks in the shape of nests with Peeps and mini eggs on top. It is such an easy, messy, delicious treat to make!!! The kids had chocolate dripping of their hands and it was a chore to keep them from licking their hands until we were done:) We love baking together and it was a great way to spend the afternoon. I love having them involved in making things to give to others. They were excited leaving tonight with their bags to give to their teachers at church.
I am hoping to get them to the mall this week to have their pics made with the Easter bunny. We also have tball practice a few times, and Maddie is starting practice with her new developmental team at gymnastics. Should have lots to post about this week!
