Easter in the Elwood House

Happy Easter!

Easter really isn’t a huge deal in our house. It is mostly about getting together as a family and of course all the Bunny and Egg stuff. But other than that it is just like another Sunday dinner with the Grandparents, plus or minus a couple extended family members.

We almost made it through the whole day without candy too until I discovered Grandma had put sugar free jelly beans inside the plastic eggs my oldest nephew hid for the kids. I guess I could let those slide, it wouldn’t have been Easter without a hand full of jelly beans.

Big props to my mother for finding sugar free ones too and respecting my no sugar rule this Easter. That is why I love her so much!

Overall it was a fantastic day. The kids had a lot of fun and ran out most of their energy.

By the time we got in the car to come home everyone was out like a light!

How was your Easter?

  • Searching! 1 of 13
    The boys set off into the back yard looking for all the Easter eggs that had been hidden by that mysterious Easter Bunny. Please don't mind the landmines of toys.
  • Brothers 2 of 13
    They were so adorable searching together for the eggs although towards the end my oldest son started to make it a competition, so I helped the toddler find some of the missing eggs.
  • What happened to the baskets?! 3 of 13
    What happened to the baskets?!
    Instead of using their Easter Baskets (pails) the Bunny brought for them, they decided to use their gardening bags. Oh well!
  • Clowns 4 of 13
    They had so much fun, especially at Grandmas house. This was right before they started searching for all the Easter eggs their big cousin Dylan hid for them!
  • Donnie Darko Bunny? 5 of 13
    Donnie Darko Bunny?
    Don't these bunny glasses resemble the creepy rabbit in Donnie Darko? Or maybe it was just my own imagination running wild. Ben loved them though!
  • I found an Egg! 6 of 13
    I found an Egg!
    I LOVE this picture. Love Love LOVE!
    I think this is one of the best pictures I have gotten of Benjamin in a really long time.
  • My Big Boy! 7 of 13
    My Big Boy!
    My oldest son is a lover. He really is... he loves to snuggle and give hugs. He is going to make some girl a very special woman one day. But until then I will soak up all the love he wants to give me!
  • Give me a nice smile! 8 of 13
    Give me a nice smile!
    Apparently this is what they consider a nice smile! Oh well, boys will be boys right?
  • Family Picture 9 of 13
    Family Picture
    We battled to try and get a nice family picture... yeah this was as close as we got. The sun was too bright for everyone, baby included!
  • In Action 10 of 13
    In Action
    Right after this, the big kid pushed the little kid out of the way for an egg. They are RUTHLESS! Although their big cousin came to the rescue and helped Ben!
  • My big Boy… Again 11 of 13
    My big Boy... Again
    He wanted to cuddle in the middle of the yard and take a picture. He melts my heart!
  • The Little Kids 12 of 13
    The Little Kids
    My oldest ran when I brought the other two in to try and get a picture together with all of them. Oh well!
  • The Sibings 13 of 13
    The Sibings
    This is the only picture I could get with all three of them together. Addison wasn't really interested in participating, she wanted Ben's egg. All he could scream was "NO BABY!" LOL Yup that is my life!
