Our Easter festivities officially started Saturday afternoon as Addison dyed Easter Eggs for the first time. I only boiled 10 eggs which initially seemed like it might not be enough but it turned out to be just perfect because by egg 10 she was flinging them around and dropping them into multiple color bowls and it got messy REALLY fast.
We got up bright and early Sunday morning and went to the early mass at church. Addison took a quick peek at her Easter basket but was surprisingly fine with leaving it and going to church. The Easter Bunny brought her a kite, a new bubble machine, a kick board and squirt gun for the pool, cups, undershirts and animal crackers. The Easter Bunny also left plenty of candy in the eggs that where hidden outside.
The advantage of going to the early service was we got home from church and still had plenty of time before our family and friends came over for Easter lunch. John and Addison even were able to read their usual Sunday Funnies.
John smoked some pork and I cooked a honey glazed ham and of course made some sweet treats. Addison assisted with it all!
The main event didn't happen until everyone finished eating...the Easter Egg Hunt! The kids were excited to hunt for eggs and more excited to see what was inside. The Easter Bunny didn't expect it to get so hot so fast and might have put a little too much chocolate in the eggs and most of it turned into a big chocolate mess...oops! Thankfully there was plenty of non-chocolate treats to enjoy too.
Landon and Addison were both recipients of new remote control cars thanks to Papa Doc and had tons of funny racing them around the pool.
We ended our Easter with dinner on the patio and a little Charlie Brown Easter Special on TV...Addison was in heaven!
