Easter Weekend

I took a lot of pictures this weekend - don't say I didn't warn you.

Our Easter weekend started with an Easter brunch and egg hunt. The kids decorated cupcakes and were over-loaded on sugar by 11am.

Patrick was just happy to sit and watch.

He also took his first sip of water from a cup.

He wasn't quite sure about it but kept taking sips when I offered it.

That afternoon Lily and Brian made Grandma's rolls for Easter lunch and Patrick watched.

Later, the kids opened up their gift package from Nana and Poppa, which they always love to receive!

I know these pictures are almost identical, but the kid is so smiley! I can't help it.

For some reason, Jamison is in this "cool guy" phase and he says it whenever I ask him to take a picture. He'll also declare something a "cool trick" if he does something impressive. I have no idea where it came from.

Next, we dyed eggs. You might notice that my kids are always in pajamas. I promise that they do wear regular clothes, they just change out of them at every chance they can. I can only say I'm glad that Jamison is dressed, as naked is his other everyday outfit. I've honestly gotten into arguments with him over the necessity of underpants.

Patrick munched on some crackers.

Next, Lily put her grand Easter scheme into action. Little did I know she had one, until I saw her intensely writing and running around the house. When she finished, she showed me where she posted multiple instructions to the Easter bunny on the wall. Since the note was written in yellow marker, I re-wrote it word for word, including the adorable typos:

There are eggs. We hid them for you! In the one that doesn't look like the others has candy. Find the puzzal pissis next (this word is circled) to the eggs (this word is also circled). Easter puzzal. Leave a toy for the baby? please?

Please write me a note right here

ps can you put a egg in our bedrooms? Put in baskets. I love Easter!

She then proceeded to hide eggs and puzzle pieces around the house. I didn't think about it until 9pm that night but then I realized I had to be the Easter bunny and collect all the pieces of the puzzle. I then had to find the one odd egg that had candy in it. This took me about 30 minutes. Lily is really good at hiding eggs and puzzle pieces. This is a talent I did not know she had and I wished I had known it earlier in the evening. I still couldn't find the last piece and had to make up some excuse that the bunny was very busy last night and didn't have the time to find all of the pieces.

Easter morning

Jamison was not given one of his gifts because he found it in its' hiding place in the basement a few days earlier. After I told him to not go in that area of the basement he decided to try again. Lily ran to tell me that he was hiding behind the couch opening his toy. So Jamison lost the toy.

Lily can get a little competitive, finding Easter eggs not being an exception.

The boy loves his Reese's.

Patrick's basket

The toys were interesting, but not as much as the basket itself.

We hope everyone had a Happy Easter!
