On Sunday morning, the kids actually slept in for Easter. It was the first time in a LONG time that the kids have slept passed 5:30am in weeks. Happy Easter to Daddy and me! I finally woke Isabella up at about 9am because the boys were dying to see their baskets from Grandma.
Grandma made them Easter Bags this year and they were a HUGE hit! The kids were SO excited! She sells them in her shop, if you are interested in getting one for next year!
Since I was hosting a bridal shower the day before, we had cleared out our living room of all furniture to make room for the tables. So we thought Easter would be the perfect day to inflate the bounce house. There was obviously tons of room for it! The kids had a lot of fun all day! This year we hosted Easter because my dad wasn't feeling well. My sister, Andy, my brother, his fiance, and my little family all had lunch and then watched the kids do their Easter Egg Hunt at our house. We even went on a little walk to look at the newly built houses in the neighborhood.
After lunch, the Easter Bunny came and the kids had a lot of fun looking for eggs. My sister took the picture of Andy and Katie with the kids on her camera - so I don't have it. Grrr. Oops. Aiden was hilarious! He opened one egg, sat and ate it, moved and got another egg, sat and ate it, then maybe got one or two more eggs. And that was it. Connor and Aiden are so similar personality-wise and so it always surprises me just how different even they are from each other at times. Connor and Isabella ran and got all the eggs they could as quickly as they could.
I'm going to try to get a couple catch-up posts done, but then I am leaving to go to Southern California to spend some time with my best friend Jen, so things may be a little quiet around here the rest of the week.
Have you hugged your mom today?
