Easterly Events 2019

Hello, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend, especially with the sunshine! We started out our weekend with our neighborhood’s egg hunt on Saturday morning. For the past two Easters that we’ve lived in Hudson, the Easter activities got moved to people’s garages because of crummy weather. It was great to turn our…

Easter 2017

Easter weekend turned out to be lovely in all sorts of ways.  Even though it rained on Saturday morning and our neighborhood egg hunt became more of a mingle with the Easter bunny and friends at one of our neighbor’s houses (still complete with eggs, treats, and plenty of excited kids.), everyone still enjoyed themselves. On Saturday afternoon we…

Visiting the Easter Bunny!

Happy belated Easter from our family! I never got around to posting our pics from our encounter with the Easter Bunny, so here they are before they get lost in our computer and I don’t find them until next year. Rosie loved meeting and high-fiving the bunny but had no interest in sitting on his…

Easter 2015

  What is more egg-cellent than Olaf the snow man Easter eggs?(Perhaps ham and cheesy potatoes. That’s what.)   But really, Easter was lovely. We stayed in St. Cloud this weekend and on Sunday we celebrated the resurrection of Christ, spring, and new beginnings.    Cece and Michaela had the time of their lives riding on Michaela’s four-wheeler.

Easter 2014

            After so many months of such a cold and icky winter, it felt wonderful to spend most of Easter Sunday outdoors with Joe’s family in St. Cloud. It was such a beautiful day. With Easter being about hope, new beginnings, and new life, it felt like a perfect day to…

Easter Sunday 2013

        This year’s Easter Sunday consisted of a small-ish crowd in St. Cloud. I was glad for the snow finally melting and plenty of ham and cheesy potatoes to go around. Cece got a head start on the egg hunt and learned the art of unwrapping foil-covered chocolate eggs REALLY fast. She also kindly…

Easter Bunny: 1, Santa: 0

      I’m thrilled to announce that meeting the Easter Bunny was far less traumatic than meeting Santa Claus. Cece gave the bunny hugs and high-fives. And he gave her peeps. (Which we shared. Peeps are awesome.) It was a win, win, win.Cece and are going to be Chicago-bound soon and I’m not sure when I’ll get…

Easter and BIRTHDAY WEEK!

Our entire family was so tuckered out after Easter/ birthday weekend in St. Cloud. The dogs look like they have aged several years and have only gotten out of their beds to go outside, and they’re even reluctant to do that. And last night we all slept very soundly, as we were stuffed to the brim with…
