Easter 2014

Easter weekend was SUPER busy! That could be why I'm posting this over a week later. My brother-in-law got married on Good Friday and we came home from the wedding Saturday which meant all of our Easter prep and festivities all pretty much took place Saturday afternoon.

When we got home there was a big box for Grant from Auntie Shauna waiting to be opened. That box contained "magic jelly beans" that needed "planting". Egg coloring. I had cooking to do. And I was chomping at the bit to get a look at all the wedding pictures I'd taken. It was a busy afternoon and evening.

The "magic jelly beans" were first in the line up:

Grant was very excited to plant the jelly beans. For the rest of the day he'd just randomly stop, gasp, and say "I think something is growing! Let's go see!" When ever we'd ask what he thought would grow he always said flowers.

Egg coloring was after the planting and in between my cooking.

He was so excited about the egg coloring!

The coloring kit came with stickers to make faces on the eggs

Some of the faces he came up with made me laugh so hard!
At some point in the evening, Grant helped me make the macaroni and cheese for Easter lunch. He was so excited that he got to stir all the ingredients together (and test the cheese to make sure it was ok). It can be so much fun to have him in the kitchen with me :)

When Grant woke up Easter morning, he immediately wanted to check if flowers had sprouted from his magic jelly beans.

He was pretty surprised to see that lollipops had grown from the jelly beans!

Now that's a garden I can get excited about :)
Grant was so excited about the lollipops that had grown outside, he completely forgot that he had to check if the Easter Bunny had left him anything. As it turns out, the Easter Bunny (like last year) had hidden two baskets. But the Easter Bunny and I had a talk, and he's going back to one basket next year.

One basket was hidden under the coffee table
And the other was in Daddy's shower!
He was excited about those socks!

The Easter Bunny is really good at picking out books.
We always do Easter lunch at my mother-in-law's house. We always eat too much good food and then talk about how we have no room for all the dessert that was made...then gorge ourselves on all the dessert that was made.

This year Aunt Debbie brought some arts & crafts stuff for Grant and they made fun Easter pictures for everyone. Grant loves when Aunt Debbie comes to visit!

And then, having no idea how full and tired everyone is, Grant insists on everyone playing hockey with him. It usually ends up being just Grant and Gramma. 

And then when someone "scores"...'s hockey fight time.
What? Doesn't everyone's family holiday end with a hockey fight?
