Egg-celent Weekend ~ EASTER 2015
We had such a fun Easter weekend this year. Parker was running a fever the day or two before Easter, so I was a little unsure if we would be able to enjoy all of our plans, but he woke up Saturday morning with no fever and feeling like himself - hooray!
On Thursday, we made up goodie bags for all of our neighbors...20 bags. We included an Easter card, an Easter booklet with an invitation to church on Sunday and a snack mix called "Bunny Bait" - it had popcorn, pretzels and rice chex covered in white chocolate and then we added sprinkles and M&Ms at the end. We delivered them over the weekend. We love spreading holiday cheer!
A neighbor a few houses down from us put together a little Easter egg hunt in their front yard at 11am Saturday. Parker was really excited about it. I'm so thankful he felt better and the weather was perfect. We got dressed and headed across the street. Have I mentioned lately how much we love our neighborhood?!
Anticipating the big hunt...
I mean, I know I'm his Mommy and all, but have you ever seen a more adorable three year old boy in overalls?
The egg hunters a.k.a our sweet neighbor friends.
After the hunt, we loaded up the wagon and delivered several of our bags before lunch.
Saturday afternoon, another neighbor dressed as the Easter Bunny and played a game with all of the kids called "You've been Egged". The Easter Bunny and her family hid 11 eggs for each child on the street and once you found 11, you went to the bunny for the 12th egg. The 12th egg was actually empty symbolizing an empty tomb and our risen Lord - so awesome! Parker was a little uneasy with the Easter Bunny at first, but also really liked it.
After looking through the basket, we finished getting ready and headed off to church. Light green was the color we went with this year - always fun to coordinate on special days!
