Oh Hoppy Days

I hope everyone had as great of a Easter Weekend as we did!

We kicked off the weekend celebration Saturday night by decorating some eggs -- and trying two new "techniques" that I found on Pinterest -- koolaid eggs and shaving cream eggs. 

The girls had a blast -- although I am not sure I'd recommend the shaving cream eggs.  They were a lot (and I mean A LOT) messier than I anticipated (I was convinced that despite wearing the gloves the girls hands were going to be stained for days!) and didn't turn out nearly as pretty as those on Pinterest.

After eggs, it was off to bed with hopes that the Easter Bunny would make a visit to our house.  Pretty sure he came early this year (as in by 9 PM)!

Thank goodness for the Target Dollar Section -- the girls got a lot of gardening stuff (gloves, hat, shovels, and plants), a new bug net and bug box, a water bottle, a book, a new swimsuit, bubbles, some peeps and a Lindt chocolate bunny.  And clearly they were pretty excited about their loot...

It didn't take them long to examine all of their goods and head outside to find the eggs...

Let the hunting begin...

Afterwards, we gobbled down some breakfast and headed to church (thank goodness for sweet friends who made room for us in the front row!).  Such a great service, with a great message -- don't put a period where God puts a comma -- followed by the annual signing of "Happy Days" by my favorite signer at Church.

Once home, we opened our gifts from Papa (kites!) and tried desperately to fly them.  Unfortunately for us, our normally very windy backyard had absolutely no wind yesterday so kite flying wasn't overly successful. 

So we headed back inside for some lunch, bunnies and rest before heading over to our neighbors for an Easter dinner.

It was great celebrating with friends who are becoming family.  So blessed to have such amazing neighbors.  Dinner was delish and my desert looked cute even if the brownies were a tad bit chewy.

So all in all, it was a great Easter.  So thankful for all of our blessings and the fact that Jesus rose from the grave and lived for us.  Hope y'all had a great Easter as well...
