We had our Easter egg hunt at OLA last week:
Ty’s preschool class had their Easter egg hunt on Tuesday (of course it was one of the coldest days of the entire year so it was a quick one!)
We have the best neighbors in the world – Pablo and Barbara and their two adorable children, Santiago (8) and Isabella (5). They are from Mexico and invited us to their Mexican Easter egg hunt. I have never heard of this before, but it was so much fun! They save eggshells for 3 months leading up to the event, stuff them with confetti and put tissue paper over the hole. After hiding them all over the yard, the kids grab them and smash them over each other’s heads. MJ was right in the thick of it with the big kids. Ty was more interested in eating his lollipop and Catelin wasn’t too sure about all of the chaos.
We dyed the Easter eggs Saturday evening – MJ decided he wanted to avoid getting it on his clothes so he went reverse commando for the event…
On Sunday, the kids were thrilled to find the Easter bunny came!
After a beautiful mass celebrating our risen Lord, Eddie and my parents came over for an early dinner. Steve grilled a delicious steak on the Green Egg (which was enormous and could have fed both of our extended families)!
