Easter Preparations

Posted by: Maggie

My dad was hosting Easter for the extended family this year, so we went over on Saturday to help with the preparations.

To avoid the inevitable disaster of spilled or swallowed dye, we kept Eleanor otherwise occupied with lunch and some guitar strumming lessons from her uncle William.

Later that night, after Eleanor went to bed, Josh and I did a dozen of our own eggs just for fun.

p.s. The photos for this post, and the Easter day posts to come, were taken with a borrowed camera. So much better than my own.

Easter Sunday

Posted by: Maggie

Sunday was Easter, and was a very busy day!

Eleanor had not napped much on Saturday because she was out of the house celebrating her Grandpa Keegan’s birthday, so she was exhausted on Sunday. She napped most of the morning and even fell asleep on the changing table while we were getting her dressed in her Easter outfit.

Our first stop of the day was to visit our friend Andrew and his family so they could meet Eleanor. I have known them since I was sixteen so they have watched me change from a punk rock teenager to a mom and soon-to-be-attorney. Andrew’s mom, Julie, and dad, Andy, really seemed to enjoy meeting Eleanor. Unfortunately, I forgot to bring my camera in.

We next went to my Aunt Kathleen’s house for an Easter Egg hunt.

We got to visit with my cousin Leana and second cousin, seven-month-old, Mia.

Josh hung out with Eleanor while I found our eggs.

For some reason my brother Emmett had two eggs to find.

After the Easter Egg Hunt we went to my mom’s house where Eleanor got her first Easter basket from her Grandma.

Then we had our Easter dinner.

Eleanor had fallen asleep on Daddy’s lap right before dinner so Daddy had his dinner on the couch.

After dinner Eleanor woke up and hung out with Grandma.

We were also belatedly celebrating my brother-in-law Christian’s birthday.

My mom got him an interesting gift, pictures of my sister having her hair and makeup done for their wedding.

It was a very busy weekend and we have vowed to avoid leaving the house again for at least a month.
