Celebrating Easter {Spring Fun}

We had a fun and full Easter weekend (sorry about the 3-days late recap but I just can't organize my photos that fast after a holiday- major props to those of you who do!) with lots of seasonal celebrating from dyeing eggs to making and decorating sugar cookies to having a couple of egg hunts. Praise the Lord the tomb is empty!

PAAS makes the neatest kits, we got a Gold and Glimmer one for $2 at Target and Kinsey had a blast painting on the shimmer paint. I think next year I'll try the all natural route though because when it came time to peeling the eyes, the paint was all tacky and slimey (yuck.)

Our only non-family Egg hunt was at our local mall and it was so well done! We got a map for 6 stores in similar areas that we could visit, get eggs and have our stop checked off the list. Once one was completed, we went back for another map and did it all over again! We had a little over an hour to do 3 maps but we only did two. We got so many goodies though (and a work out haha) that Kinsey wasn't even disappointed. My favorite score of the day (besides the See's chocolates I picked up) was these two coupons for free kid's meals at CPK.

Easter morning arrived and with it the finding of the Easter baskets. This was the first time I've hidden them since the St Patrick's Day scavenger hunt was such a hit. We used Courtney's printable (she is freaking fantastic!!!) and just might have to make it a yearly tradition. We celebrated Easter at my In Laws and it was so nice and laid back. This was Brielana's second Easter but first proper egg hunt and she was running around grabbing up eggs like a pro. I guess that's how it is when your big sister is an egg finding champion. And I insisted on a family picture but didn't get any using my phone and I fear they may never make their way to me, oops.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! For nostalgia sake here is Easter 2015 and Easter 2014.

  5. What a great celebration. We dyed with kool-aid this year, and I liked it a lot. I just need to choose better colors next year!

  9. What a great Easter! I hate all the egg dyeing no method seems to be without its many flaws. We colored most of ours with sharpies this year and I don't think we will ever go back since the girls are a bit older now. But yeah I'd never give a 2 year old a Sharpie :D!

  10. The picture of the girls in the bunny ears at the Easter egg hunt! LOVE.
    Sounds like you had a wonderful Easter!!! I love that you did Courtney's printable. I was so far behind on blog reading last week that I didn't even read about it until it was too late. BUT you better believe I saved it for next year! She's a holiday genius!

  11. The mall egg hunt sounds amazing - See's?! Holy, yes please.
    How fun that you did Courtney's treasure hunt for this. We missed on the Easter one, but I have no doubt it was just as awesome as the St. Patty's Day one!
    And your girls - oh my, the sweetest! Love their dresses.

  12. Yes! All the praise and glory be to God! I love Easter and love sharing the true meaning with my sweetest boy! Oh friend, glad I am not the only one that gets overwhelmed by the amount of pictures taken on a holiday weekend!! I didn’t get my post up until yesterday, either. Looks like y’all had a really good Easter weekend!! The mall Easter thing sounds like fun! We don't have a mall anywhere near us! Their Easter dresses are precious!
