Happy Easter! I don’t know about your house, but ours is filled with tons of chocolate and sugar-filled children. We started Holy Saturday with the Clarksville Parks Department Easter egg hunt. Although it was supposed to be a pretty afternoon, the morning was foggy and kind of gross. The kids didn’t mind, however!
The Easter bunny arrived by fire truck – although you almost can’t spot him!
For some reason, Sophie has become increasing terrified of people in costumes lately. It’s so crazy, it’s almost funny. She talked to our bear mascot at school for a long time, as long as the costume’s head wasn’t on. The minute it went back on, she started screaming. It was the same with the Easter bunny. Sophie knew that our neighbor, Lindsey, was wearing the costume. As long as her head was off and Sophie could see her face, all was okay. But with the head on? Chaos.
This was major progress – but you can still tell that Sophie is clinging to her friend and just barely touching the bunny. Not sure what we’ll do when we make a return trip to Disney.
Despite the weather and bunny fear, the kids ended up with plenty of eggs and candy.
Sophie wanted to help me make the deviled eggs. She lasted long enough to take a picture – then she said they smelled bad and walked away.
We always go to Easter Vigil Mass. Besides just being a beautiful service, I also enjoy seeing new members join the Church and it allows us to sleep in a little and hang out in pjs on Easter morning. So after egg hunting and cooking, we cleaned up and headed off to Mass.
Easter morning was rainy, so we had to hunt for eggs in the house.
Andrew was REALLY excited to find a book he’d been wanting in his basket, while Aidan was more of a chocolate kind of guy.
We had lunch at my mom’s with all the Courtney cousins. Not a bad looking group!
Next weekend is opening day for Little League!
