Easter 2018

Easter is one of my favorite holidays each year. It’s also the one holiday that we host at our own house. But mostly I love Easter because it’s the start of Spring and warm weather. And it’s a spring weekend when we get to slow down and stay home and spend time with family. Also Jesus. Of course.

We woke up Easter morning to the sound of someone digging through Easter baskets (actually buckets, but whatevs). It was James. Ha! He was just looking!

The boys LOVED Easter. They ate at least 1/2 of their chocolate BEFORE breakfast. And that was just the beginning. I only got pics of Logan, but his brothers ate almost as much chocolate as he did. Also, side note: if you haven’t tried Kinder Joy eggs run, don’t walk, and go get you some. You can thank me later.

After a slow easy start to the morning we got dressed and went to church. The boys wore seersucker suits. Because . . . well because. That’s all. They looked amazing. I actually bought these 2 years ago and they just now fit! And they may fit next year too. Yay!

We tried to get a nice family picture after church. Didn’t happen. This may be better though. About as close to real life as it gets.

I tried to get a picture of the boys in their suits too. Also didn’t work out. (I got one later though. Yay!)

After church we had 20 people over at our house for lunch. And me . . . I made nothing. I do like to cook, but everyone else made the Easter food. #winning.

After lunch we did a HUGE Easter egg hunt for the little kids. 160 eggs I think. All filled with candy.

As you can see Mason stopped to eat candy as he went. And somehow he managed to find all the peanut butter cups. Lucky kid.

After we finished they went through their buckets to see what they got.

And then Coco colored on Mason’s face with chalk. At least that’s the story I got from Mason.

Nicholas tried to teach James how to skateboard. Seems safe right?

And Grandpa tried on the Easter bunny ears and it was basically one of the best things ever.

And I got a good picture of the boys in their suits. I’m so in love with these suits!

And this one too. Actually lots of outtakes. But this is my fav.IMG_8046

And the best picture of the day goes to Lolo. So many things I could say about this one. But I’m definitely saving it for his wedding, high school yearbook, whatever opportunity presents itself.

Oh and we dyed eggs.

They were amazing. Read about that in this separate Egg Dying post!
