The past few holidays have been different in the fact that usually we spend holidays together with family. This has been tricky to do over the last couple of years because our family is all in Massachusetts. This year we did get to spend time with Ty's family and my older sister's family...but it's still different in many ways.
Our morning started with me pushing snooze so many times that finally I realized I had 15 minutes to make sure that the Easter Bunny had done all his work!! Scarlett woke up at her usual 8:45 am time. Unless I wake her up for daycare, she will sleep until about 9 am. As you can imagine I love this quality in her.....Once she got up, she laid in bed with Daddy for a few minutes before telling him that she wanted to see if the Easter Bunny had come. We had a small breakfast and then Scarlett realized that the Easter Bunny had left her a note directing her where her first egg to her scavenger hunt was. This was the first year that we did an actual scavenger hunt. It took her about 2 eggs to realize how it worked but then she was enamored by the process and couldn't find them fast enough. Her final surprise was in the garage, a brand new big girl bicycle! Oh how she's asked for this. And the snow has finally melted in time for her to be able to use it. We let her ride it a couple times before we headed out to Easter Brunch in the city. We met my sister and her family, along with Ty's family. Brunch was delicious and we came home stuffed to the brim. Luckily Scarlett wanted to ride the bike for a good couple of hours so we bundled up and stayed outside with her; walked off the brunch. At first, she had a little trouble with the bigger pedals but like my little Scarlett, within minutes she was flying up and down the drive way. It's amazing to see her grow into such a girl. Ty did a little garage cleaning and then we came in to dye Easter Eggs. The rest of our Sunday was pretty much lazy. Which I could use. I've got a lot of upcoming events that I am going to need every bit of energy for! I've begun plans for Scarlett's 4th Birthday Party. I tell myself every year that I'm not going to have a "small party" but I'm beginning to think I"m not sure what that is. Or maybe I just love the whole process of party planning. Either way, I think she is going to love her birthday theme this year.
More on that later...
What did everyone do for Easter this year? I love hearing what everyone did with their families on holidays.
