We had a great Easter weekend.
My weekend started on Thursday night when the best friend stopped by to spend the night and have me help her with her hair. So we stayed up all night (until 5am Friday morning) taking her braids out and combing out her hair, while we watched tons of great movies on Netflix. It was a fun girls night though it was a lot of work.
Friday, we went to town like normal. We had chinese for dinner and brought it home to watch movies, bake cakes and wait for my Mom to get here. She arrived around midnight and I spent the night talking with her until 4am. It was great to see her and the kids loved knowing she was back home for now.
Saturday we had our Easter gathering with family. The traditional dinner and egg hunt. It went well and all the kids had a great time. I think the Easter visit is their favorite of all the dinners throughout the year.
Sunday we hung out at home and rested. The bunny brought the kids each a little something: a sand pail, bubbles, coloring books, a toy, crayons and candy. They really loved their simple gifts. Late in the afternoon we went to visit family friends. The kids were able to hold the sweetest puppy. They really loved that. Afterwards we went to Walmart just to look around and bought some extra holiday candy, as well as some movies and various other goodies.
Overall, it was a very relaxing weekend for us. We focused on family more than anything. Simply being together. I honestly feel that was just what we needed to feel refreshed for the month ahead.
Hope you all had a Happy Easter too!
