Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! We attended several Easter egg hunts over the last week. Little Red Riding Hood loves egg hunts and holds them for herself all year round. She doesn't care that the plastic eggs she hides are empty. The first hunt was in perfect weather. It really was just 10,000 eggs spread across a field, but the kids had a blast.

We also held an Easter egg hunt at home with some of our friends. We decorated eggs and then headed outside for some hunting fun. This time the eggs were well hidden.

Our last hunt came on a rainy day. We joined other crazy motivated hunters in the pouring rain. We attended this hunt because all of the candy was organic and safe for Tom Sawyer to eat.

Easter morning the kids woke up to their Easter baskets. (I had the opportunity to give an Easter basket to Goldilocks the night before.)

After the kids ate way too much candy, we were off to church. The kids enjoyed decorating Easter eggs for Sunday school. We then enjoyed a lovely service. Afterwards, we all enjoyed hot cross buns, which is a tradition at our church.

I hope you had a wonderful Easter.

Blessings, Dawn


  1. What a lovely Easter you all had. I love the chocolate chicken! I have been looking for one ever since we read the Max and Ruby story years ago, but I have never been able to find one. Happy Easter!!

  2. Sounds like a wonderful Easter! So many fun egg hunts, your kids must have been so pleased!

  3. Happy Easter to you too. I'm a bit slow getting to things this week. It looks like you had a great time at all the egg hunts.

  4. My kids always enjoyed multiple Easter Egg hunts that they created, with empty eggs, too. They also liked filling them with things they found in the backyard.
