We had a wonderful Easter weekend. The kids are all on spring break this week so there was a lot of excitement leading up to Easter day. Everyone had their class parties and egg hunts last week. Steve and I split up duties- I went to the preschool for Catelin’s class hunt/party (and got to see Ty there) while Steve went to Stations of the Cross with MJ’s class.
Here are a few pictures…
We went to Dunwoody Country Club for their annual Easter egg hunt on the golf course on Saturday. Catelin was deathly afraid of the Easter bunny so she stayed as far away from him as possible! Remember this picture from last year?!
Well this year she wouldn’t even let the Easter bunny get within 20 feet of her – I decided to not force the issue.
On Easter morning the kids were thrilled to find that the Easter bunny came with presents and goodies for their Easter baskets. He also hid eggs all around the house for them to find – they had a blast.
We went to mass to celebrate our risen Lord- it was a beautiful celebration of Christ. The kids were a little hyped up on candy but they did ok considering. Then we went over to Steve’s parent’s house for more Easter fun. Grandma Eco even heated up the pool so they could go for a swim!
Ty found the golden egg which had $20 in it! He knew how much MJ wanted to find the golden egg so he gave it to his older brother- such a sweet boy. I tried to insist that he keep it but he refused and said it was for MJ. (Don’t worry- I plan to sneak $20 into Ty’s wallet at some point)!
Well…it was a peaceful afternoon until Catelin stepped off the pool stairs and her head went under the water. I was sitting in a lounge chair right in front of her so I jumped up and ran right into the pool to grab her- yes that meant I went in fully clothed in my Easter dress. Thank goodness she was perfectly fine but it scared mommy (and apparently baby E #4) to death! Steve was inside the house and walked out as I was climbing out of the pool with Catelin in my arms. I was pretty shaken up but then realized how ridiculous I must have looked almost 9 months pregnant soaking wet in a dress. There were quite a few contractions that followed the ordeal but thankfully after a little rest they stopped.
It was a beautiful Easter celebrating the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Happy Easter to you and yours!
