Holidays in a new home are always nice… even if there is an attached learning curve. Where to set up the Christmas tree, how to gather a birthday party crowd, etc. This new home gave us a couple of ‘firsts’ for Easter.
Pixie (and her siblings) LOVED the excitement… AND the loot(!) of their first Easter. Not as much as they loved their first Christmas tree, but they had fun. Imagine trying to dye eggs with a cat determined to run off with one .. or at least roll it off the table and eat it. It’s a good thing these cats do not have thumbs, they manage to ‘steal’ enough as it is… Little furry pirates!
As we are still trying to figure out what to do with parts of our family room we have boxes cluttering up the space in a couple of areas. Add to that the fact the kids have been playing and ‘re-decorating’ the area over Spring break, and, well, this room is a mess! No matter, it made for good indoor egg hiding.
In previous years, we’ve always had to hide eggs inside because we lived in an upper floor apartment without a yard of our own. This year, we had real hard-boiled eggs, and plastic eggs with candy - good chocolate… the kids aren’t very picky, nor do they ever eat that much of the candy(!), but if we’re going to have to help them with it, it might as well be stuff we like too - and we didn’t want to these foods to be out on the ground. Indoors works.
Egg hunting can be a work out.
Hooray for little tiny cute animals! Honor was thrilled to find that a number of the eggs held these surprise ‘friends’!
Even though there was plenty of fun to be had searching for eggs inside, the Easter bunny could not resist our lovely garden. This is definitely a first… our own private back yard egg hunt!
Someone likes the money he found in these plastic eggs!
That Easter bunny must be tall!
And these are truly amazing plants.. most of the time they just grow plain ol’ flowers, but in fall we ‘picked’ kittens here, and in Spring we found eggs, what next??
Hope you all had a wonderful Easter celebration, however you chose to celebrate, with the ones you love.
