Weeks, even months before Easter fell upon us I remember thinking how mad people would be to buy their Easter eggs and other chocolate treats so early. Well, now I understand why! Ever since the children broke for their Easter break from school I knew I was cutting it close, but due to being so busy and not feeling like I had sat down properly in days, I ended up leaving it all a little too late.
So late in fact that I eventually found the opportunity to buy my children an Easter egg the DAY BEFORE Easter Sunday. Needless to say, the shelves were all but bare. I was able to pick them up a little egg each as well as a few Easter treats to put together a little Easter egg hunt for them too, so, I guess it wasn’t a total loss.
Our Easter egg hunt was done on Easter Monday because we had a few extra little humans over for a sleepover the following night. So as the children slept in on Monday morning I was able to hop around the house leaving little Easter treats for them to find.
This was the first Easter that Annabelle has been able to understand what it’s all about and I really loved watching her older siblings allow her to carry the basket as they hunted for treats.
Ellie loved receiving this GIANT Ferrero rocher type egg and the little ones loved their eggs too!
The kids also got a visit from Granda! Who brought Easter baskets and eggs for the children. I even got a little chocolate Easter bunny from my Daddy too!
Overall, the kids had a wonderful Easter weekend! Lots of choccy eggs, an Easter egg hunt, a visit from Grandad, movie trips and more. It’s been a busy one for sure! Now, roll on them going back to school so we can countdown to them being off for their summer holidays!!
Did you have a good Easter? I do hope so! xx
