A Thoughtful Place: Easter Celebration Wrap-Up

Easter Celebration Wrap-Up

What a fantastic Easter weekend. Raise your hand if you’re tired!? I am wiped out but in a really nice way. First, we enjoyed church and a beautiful breakfast at my parent’s house. Then it was back to our house to let the kids run around while we got ready to host dinner and an egg hunt.  At the end of the night when we climbed into bed to say our prayers, my son said, “Easter is the best day ever. It’s too much fun.”

Here is a peek at our table. The linens and blue flowers are from HomeGoods. The chalkboard chargers were a DIY project I did here.

These little nests were a take off from my copy of the PInterest spring art you can see here. I cut circles of green gingham paper and then glue gunned burlap in a circular pattern to form nests. The three little jelly beans are just resting on top for guests to eat.

Try as we did, we just couldn’t get an normal shot of the kiddos {well, I guess this is normal!}. Either my daughter was doing the “strangle hug” as we like to call it, or they felt the need to wiggle into strange poses. Obviously excited for the day and at least the shots capture that!

Later, it was outdoor fun and a mad dash for the egg hunt. All in all, we were so blessed to have gorgeous weather and to celebrate a special day with our family. We were even treated to a show put on by the youngest of the cousins {do you all remember the days of putting on shows for our parents?}.

Happy Monday to you all. We are easing into Spring Break as we lounge in our pajamas and let the kiddos enjoy some goodies and activities left by the Easter Bunny.

  16. I agree with Darling Nikki - the kiddos stole the "blog", but Grandma is just a little biased. Thanks so much for sharing the adorable Easter pics!

  21. I couldn't agree more on the Easter thing, totally fun, but tiring! I'm pretty sure my son has told us that the last 4 or 5 special occasion days were "the best day *EVER*" (c: I'm so glad they are easy to please! The table was absolutely darling, but not as cute as your two little guys there, just precious (c:

  32. Absolutely beautiful!! The kids, the table, everything. :) And I am raising my hand high to the question of "Who's tired???" I was so wiped out physically and emotionally that I spent all yesterday (Monday) in my sweats and didn't get a single thing done. And then went to bed at 7:30!! But it was a happy kind of tired. How nice that Easter is the start of your spring break. For us, Easter ended spring break. Which wasn't bad really...a great ending to a fun week. But it sure was hard to get up at 6:30 AM after the big Easter weekend and try to drag ourselves back into the land of school, work and daily routines!
