Easter weekend was a busy one. First it was Brennan's birthday on Friday, then I had a church activity Saturday morning and we had a birthday party to go to Saturday afternoon. Brennan had a test to study for and we were planning on going out to eat Saturday night for his birthday. Add to all that trying to fit in Easter traditions and it felt like a whirlwind.
Saturday night after we went out to Outback (It was delicious. Tatum was a pill though, next time we are leaving her at home. :)), we got busy dying eggs. We thought it would be fun to include Tatum in this tradition this year but it didn't work out so well. She colored on a couple eggs with crayons but when we tried to get her to put them in the dye she would just take the cup and try to drink it. Luckily we used Kool Aid for dye this year, but still she wasn't exactly 'getting' it. So we sent her to bed partway through. :)
What a guy...playing with fire.
Then of course we all had to find our Easter baskets. I was surprised by how much Tatum loved this part. As you can see
So all of that happened before 9:30 in the morning. Then we were off to church in Mt. Vernon. After Church mom did a little Easter egg hunt in the yard for the kids. Once again Tatum surprised me with her interest.
And she's off!
We ate a delicious Easter feast and enjoyed time with family. It was a great day and we are grateful for our Savior who died for us and we know He lives again. And because He does, we will too. How wonderful!
