Weekending: Easter Edition

We had such a lovely Easter celebration this past weekend. We celebrated with family on Saturday because of work schedules and such and it was a truly lovely day having all my family in one place. Jeff cooked an amazing roast, I made several different types of salads and we had all the Easter usuals as well, (deviled eggs, pie etc). The Easter Bunny somehow knew to come a day earlier for Ellie. He hid eggs all over the house and outside. And he brought a beautiful basket filled with lovely handmade (some mama made) toys and goodies. It was a good thing he did come Saturday, because Ellie came down with a fever on Sunday and was down most of the day.

story egg
I had made Ellie this little Lambie Pie a few months ago. She loved getting it in her basket. And the egg was something we had picked up on a whim in the craft store a few weeks back. I thought it would be fun to create a “story egg” each year for her. I wood burned and then painted a pictorial story of Jack and The Beanstalk (her favorite these days).

The Easter Bunny hid a few eggs inside the house (a tradition of Jeff’s family) and he also hid some outside as well (traditionally the way my family did Easter). A few eggs had little bunny shaped crackers in them and a couple of mama made peg dolls too. The rest were eggs that Ellie and I had dyed with some vegetable dyes earlier in the week and then a few I had made with watercolor and ink  the night before.

play
Ellie’s play table was set up with a few new items as well. An adorable bunny set from TansyDolls and then her mama and dada sheep that came in her basket, for a little lamb she already had, made by Feathered Nest Studio. (Thank you ladies!!)

We all ended the afternoon with a really nice, but chilly walk on the beach. Hope you all had a lovely Easter, Passover and/or Spring weekend!

  1. Oh my goodness you’re an amazing mama!! Love those eggs, gorgeous. It looks like you had a wonderful Easter! We did a treasure hunt outside )Scott always draws a map) and the girls got far more art supplies than chocolate 🙂
    I hope you’re doing well! x

    • Thank you so much Isis!! A treasure hunt sounds like so much fun and with a map!! I love it!! Art supplies are so much better than chocolate (well, excepting dark chocolate with mint, that’s my favorite). 😉
