Easter 2017

We had a beautiful Easter weekend with lots of fun and good food!  Tyler had Good Friday off, so we colored eggs first thing Friday morning before his mom grabbed Ellie for most of the day.  We were able to get Willow's nursery in really good shape, there are still things that need to get done (like iron curtains and organize her bureau/closet), but it's looking pretty good and I can't wait to share more soon! :)

Saturday morning, we took Ells to our town's Easter egg hunt.  There were tons of eggs but also tons of kids, so the hunt lasted all of thirty seconds but Ellie didn't seem to mind.  I wasn't sure if she would get too caught up in people watching to participate, but she loved it and was so proud of her collection! :)  She also got her first ever taste of Skittles, which may have put her love of chocolate to shame. ;)

The Bunny woke up early Sunday morning to set out Ellie's basket and set up a little egg hunt in the yard.  She seemed to like everything in her basket and took her sweet time examining each thing before moving onto the next (something she definitely gets from her daddy, at least that's how he opens gifts as an adult).

While she did like her basket, she LOVED the egg hunt we did!  I grabbed a package of cute egg hunt signs in the Target dollar section, which ended up being totally worth it - they kept her on track, she liked to collect them with the eggs as she went, and we can reuse them every year.  I filled the eggs with candy, bunny fruit snacks and a couple other small Target dollar spot finds. 

We spent the rest of the day visiting family, eating way too much food and of course dipping into the year's supply of candy we currently have in our house.  The struggle was very real trying to get any kind of decent pictures, but we kind of got a few?

I also snapped my 32 week picture on Sunday.  While my gut tells me that Willow won't come quite as early as her big sis did, there is of course a chance that this was our last major holiday as a family of three which blows my mind a little bit.  We have some family members rooting for a Memorial Day weekend baby, so we'll see what happens. ;)

Hope you all had a very Happy Easter! :)
