What a great and crazy busy weekend. Happy Easter to all my family, friends, and readers. I hope that everyone had a great day.
He is Risen!! Praise the Lord!! I first before posting some super cute pictures want to thank God for sending his only son to come down and die on the cross for our sins so that we can have eternal life with him. That is the true meaning of Easter and I can’t wait to be able to teach my boys the meaning of Easter and not just the fun eggs and candy.
So we started our Easter weekend on Friday. We went over to Grandma and Pa Pa Weimer’s house for dinner and to color some eggs. This is Austin’s 3rd Easter so he is a pro at coloring eggs already. He got right in there colored fingers and all. He was so proud of the colors he made the eggs. Alijah did pretty well to except for when he thought it would be better to try and eat the coloring cups. He talked most of the time and have fun though.
On Saturday we started off our morning with an Easter Egg Hunt at the church. The church normally holds it outside in two parts but since it was raining they had it inside. They have different age groups split into different areas. We got to take our kids in first with their age and really let them go to town picking up eggs before they let the older ones in. This was really nice because then both of the boys got to pick up a descent amount of eggs themselves and not having to fight to get a few eggs. There is over 35,000 eggs that get picked up in a matter of mins, so it gets really crazy really fast.
After this egg hunt we went to lunch with my sister and 4 kids and then we headed to the mall to find Alijah’s Easter outfit. I had found Austin’s outfit already but I was having very hard time finding what I wanted in Alijah’s size. I love putting the boys in vest suits for holidays. The only issue I have with this is that for some reason you can never find anywhere vest suits for babies under 12 months. Alijah is still fitting into 6 months and some of them are still big so there was no way he was going to fit into 12 months without being swallowed up in it. So I finally found a cute outfit that I thought was springy and cute.
Saturday afternoon and evening we hung out at my mom’s house. All of the kids love playing together. My sister has 4 kids and her 3rd is 2 months older then Austin and her 4th is 4 months younger then Alijah so they really do have a great time playing together. My mom also had an Easter Egg hunt at her house. The kids got to pick up eggs and inside them had candy. Certain ones also had words in them and wrote out a sentence of He is Risen. Austin did really well getting all the eggs and putting them in his basket. He didn’t even have to help him to much or even tell him more then a few times to put the eggs int he basket until he was done and we would go through them.
The Easter Bunny came Saturday night. This year the bunny had double the work to do. She got right to it getting everything put together. Louie and I got up early and started getting ready so we could try and get to church early because we knew it would be completely packed. Austin started waking up so I told him through the monitor that he could come out. Louie and I waited for him to walk out where he was still all tired but he got a big smile on his face when he saw the baskets in the living room. He was excited that the Easter Bunny had come. After coming to give me a hug he went right to his basket and going through it. Austin loved his puzzle and the tunnel that he got. Alijah also loves the tunnel. He will go through it with any help or talking him into it. He just goes right in and laughs the whole time and loves coming out of the two ends.
After they both got to play with their baskets a but it was time to get ready for church. We of course left a little late and did not get to church early. There where no seats at all so we watched out in the front with the big screen tvs and couches. Which I have to say other then having to turn a lot to watch the screens the couches were much more comfy then the chairs in the sanctuary are.
After church we went to my mom’s house and took some cute pictures of all the kids. We then ate a big lunch and just visited with family before we ended out to go to the other grandparents. When we got to their house we walked in to a room full of eggs, books, and toys all over the floor. It took some convincing to get him to pick them up and see what all Alijah and him got. Once he picked it up he of course then wanted to play with it all.
As you can see another crazy busy but fun weekend. The boys did great all weekend and loved playing with all the family that was around. Thank you to both parents for all the great Easter stuff that you got the boys they love all of it.
