Easter Eve

In previous years we’ve gone to a big egg hunt outside of Montgomery on the Saturday before Easter. This year, Maxwell had a baseball game so we weren’t able to go. It worked out though because we were able to get together with a few of our neighbors for a fun egg hunt!

It was 5 families and 13 kids! with another on the way! The Easter Bunny himself even made an appearance…

The kids dyed eggs while the dads hid plastic eggs in the front yard and across the street at the school.

When it was time for the hunt, the dads gave the explanation and then they were off!

The “little kids” hunted in the front yard while the “big kids” went across the street to the school where there were a TON of eggs hidden all over, including two big golden eggs I had brought that each had $10 in them! After a few minutes, the kids found all of the regular eggs but no one had found either of the golden eggs! After a few hints and maybe a few elbows thrown, the prize eggs were found. Ginny Grace found one and Sara Francis snagged the other…

Maxwell was already not feeling great from allergies at the ball park, combine that with a scrape on his leg and not finding the golden egg and we had one unhappy camper. Spencer made up for it by being super happy about all the jelly beans he was getting to eat! ha!

We ended up all ordering pizza and keeping the kids up too late but it was totally worth it. It was such a fun night and made me so excited about  our “new” neighborhood!

Egg hunts

We had a wonderful Easter! The weather was perfect and we enjoyed getting to see some family. The Easter fun began last week though with our Palm Sunday egg hunt at church. My cuties in their spring outfits…

Spencer is cracking me up in this next picture! I think he was trying to be on his best behavior for the picture because he had thrown a fit about the cute light green gingham button down shirt I wanted him to wear! He clearly won the battle…

He still looks cute in his blue polo. I love them.

My crew!

Unfortunately Maxwell didn’t get to stay for the egg hunt at church because he and Robert had to get to baseball practice. They divide the kids up by age so Spencer ended up going to the 4 year old area with his buddy, Christopher, while I took Samantha to the baby area.

She wasn’t quite so sure about it all and really just wanted to get one egg and then stop and eat the candy out!

She got a few and Spencer got more candy than he needed so all was good. Maxwell might have missed the egg hunt but, don’t feel bad for him – he got to play baseball and then talked Robert into getting him a GIANT treat!

The next day we were invited to another egg hunt at their friend Mac and Meme’s house. It was another fun adventure – with so (so so so) much candy!

Then Spencer and Samantha had their class Easter parties on Wednesday with another little egg hunt at school! I was the party mom for both classes and sent these cute and super easy cookies that I thought turned out cute…

Ready for school!

and my pot of gold! Along with her sweet brothers, of course! My pot is overflowing!  :) Have a great weekend!

Go down memory lane with St. Patty’s Day in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 (which I guess I didn’t really do a St. Paddy’s day post but you can see Samantha’s cute green outfit there!).

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day! I know I’ve got 3 little loves that are excited for the day…and were excited for yesterday because they all had their school Valentine parties on Monday. We made our Valentines again this year just like in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 and I thought they came out so cute…

Spencer’s was tricky – he really wanted a printed out dinosaur to color so I finally got him one that he colored and we cut out and glued it onto another card and then he added all the hearts! Maxwell did his all on his own, of course. I made Samantha’s. :) Because Valentine’s Day is basically equal to Halloween in terms of candy consumption, we added treats to them. Spencer picked Skittles, I added gummies for Samantha’s, and Maxwell’s had Star Wars jelly beans (which I was very proud to find and had to go to 4 stores to get!)

Also, just so I remember, I did a Target gift card for the teachers.

I was the treat mom for Maxwell’s class so sent these chocolate dipped marshmallows. There is a girl in his class that can’t have gluten so this was the best gluten-free treat I could come up with. It doesn’t hurt that all my kids loooove marshmallows!

Samantha taste tested and approved!

The kids all came home with some fun loot…
