Easter

Easter was great. Typical Easter- baskets, egg hunt, Allan’s parents came over and brought a delicious ham dinner.

I’m so glad there is a lot of candy that Payson can have despite gluten and dairy allergies. Though our Easter is mostly non-edible treats, I can’t imagine an Easter without any candy! It’s sad for me to not be able to give him a chocolate Easter bunny. Thank goodness he was so in love with his marshmallow chick!

Ember’s favorite part of Easter was pulling at the decorations on the kids’ Easter baskets.

I printed off some fun color pages and games that were linked on The Crafty Crow.

Payson really, really loved that marshmallow chick. He savored it for a long time. I was surprised because usually he shoves as much food in his mouth as possible. This time he licked it and took small bites and really took time to enjoy it πŸ™‚

I was making deviled eggs and then cleaning up in the kitchen and Payson was wanting to be near me so he spent the time laying on the ground with his elephant. I think he would have fallen asleep if I hadn’t been talking to him so much!

In typical Ariana fashion, those were all the pictures I took! I’m so terrible at taking holiday pictures. I like to just experience holidays, not be the photographer.

While the kids were coloring their Easter pages in the morning I told them the story of Christ’s resurrection. I cried, Brooklyn teared up, Sierra pouted over wanting a certain color of crayon Brooklyn was using, and Payson said, “yeah” after everything I said πŸ™‚
And Ember was, of course, playing with baby toys next to us.

Right now she’s baby talking while chewing on a bath toy, it’s so cute I can barely stand it. I’m smiling at her while I type and she can’t help but laugh in response because she knows I think she’s the cutest, most clever, sweetest, best baby in the world.

One thought on “Easter

  • Yay, that looks like a proper fun way to spend Easter. Its great that you have family that lives so close. And I'm with you– you gotta enjoy your holidays, not take a bazillion photos. Just a enough to remember them by. Which I'd say you did. πŸ™‚
