Easter Overload!

We had a busy week here.  We spent Thursday making Resurrection Eggs, which Spencer really enjoyed.  I didn't manage to take a picture yet, but it was a fun, worthwhile activity which gave him a better understanding of the story of Easter.

Friday morning our playgroup had an Easter party at a local park.  They had egg hunts for different age groups, including the babies (there are probably 10 babies under the age of 1!).  What does an egg hunt for a group of babies look like?  You place all the babies on a blanket, then dump about 100 plastic Easter eggs in the middle - they had a blast!

I realized VERY late in the game (like on Saturday afternoon) that Mallory didn't have a cute Easter shirt.  So I quickly surveyed her closet and found this shirt, which she has almost outgrown.  I freehanded a bunny outline, traced it onto Heat & Bond, ironed it onto chenille, cut out the bunny, ironed it to the shirt, and stitched around it.  Total time = 15 minutes.  It would have taken me 5, but I spent 10 minutes trying to find my heat & bond!  I didn't get a great picture, but here is one I shot at our family Easter gathering.

Saturday evening we dyed Easter eggs on the patio.  I attempted to use stickers on a few before dyeing them, but the results were less than perfect! 

And of course the Easter Bunny visited overnight and left lots of goodies!
Then it was on to our celebrate at my sister's house with most of my family.  Mallory had fun hanging out in the shade....
....while the rest of the kids hunted Easter eggs! 
Spencer made out like a bandit.  We dumped out all his eggs today - he managed to score 2 huge plastic cups full of candy and $9.69 in change!  Daddy took him to buy a new Lego set tonight - he is not much of a saver! 

I hope everyone had a nice Easter!
