I’d better get this post in before Easter is too far behind us. I wanted to post some pictures of the different activities we enjoyed with the twins over the Easter weekend. It’s so much fun to have them nearby.
On Good Friday, the twins came for the day. Their two older aunties took them to an Easter egg hunt next door at the care center where DH’s mother lives. Rose Red calls the care center “the house where all the grandpas and grandmas live.” They took a hyacinth for Great-Ma, as they call her, but she was napping and missed the egg hunt and their visit. They left the flower for her to enjoy later.
Not only did they find some eggs, they received a lot of compliments on their Easter bonnets.
The only fly in the ointment was Rose Red’s jelly bean experience. Not having much exposure to candy in general, she thought the red jelly bean was awful. She asked, “Do I have to eat that?”
Before coming back to our house, they stopped to play in the park.
Rose Red picked some daffodils for Ma before coming in. The stems were all of 3″ long, of course.
But they made a cute bouquet.
That evening, our DDIL came by and we decorated sugar cookies for her to share with her co-workers.
The twins did the sprinkling of cookie decorations and sugars.
The grands went home for the night, but came back on Saturday. They wanted to decorate paper Easter eggs to hang from the ceiling in the kitchen.
After Christmas, we left the clear hooks on the ceiling that had held the snowflakes, so it was easy for Pa to hang the Easter eggs.
Saturday was Easter egg coloring day. Half the eggs were brown and they didn’t take the color as well, but the girls didn’t mind. They pretty much just wanted to dip all the eggs into all the colors.
Sunday afternoon, the girls were here for an egg hunt. The weather was beautiful and the daffodils made good hiding spots.
And we took lots of pictures of the girls in their Easter outfits.
Checking their hats.
A busy, but fun, weekend!
