A great Easter weekend

Easter 2016

We had a lovely Easter weekend this year! Holidays are so much more fun when there is a little person around. It’s the innocent joy that a child experiences that is so amazing. I was lucky enough to have a friend in town for the weekend and so she was happy to see Ezri’s excitement too. Before Ezri woke up, I made sure that I hid all of her toys so that she came downstairs and only saw what the Easter bunny left for her. It worked like a charm because Ezri was so excited to see all the eggs all over the living room. Although, she didn’t quite get the point of putting them into the basket. She would try to carry as many as she could in her arms instead. As soon as she found more, she would drop the ones in her hands to pick up the new ones lol. I tried to show her how to put them into the basket and carry it around but she wasn’t having any of it. So cute anyway. I had put little treats into those little plastic eggs and I said to everyone that if she could figure out how to open them, then she could have the chocolate. Well when she was shuffling the eggs around, one of them burst open. The chocolate went straight into her mouth, no hesitation at all. Of course after that she knew how they worked and managed to get a few more open. We had to take the eggs away eventually because we didn’t want her to eat too much candy. After all, it wasn’t even 10am and she hadn’t had breakfast yet. She crashed from her sugar high at nap time beautifully, btw!! Haha.

In addition to too much chocolate for a 16 month old to handle, she also received Minnie & Mickey stuffies that were dressed up as bunnies. She LOVES them! She carries them around everywhere and gives them to anyone she sees to give them hugs. Then she takes them back and gives them hugs too. She also received an magnetic drawing board as she has been learning how to colour and hold a pen. She loves it as well.

In addition to a lovely Easter morning, I had a glorious long weekend as well. I took the weekend off work and so it was a real treat to have a nice girl’s weekend. On Good Friday, we hit up Costco and Michaels for supplies and then spent the rest of the afternoon knitting and watching movies. In fact that is what the whole weekend consisted of. It was so nice to relax and have a good time with a great friend. She feels more like a sister to me, to be honest. I am sad that she lives almost 5 hours away. We try to make the most of our visits that we can!

We had our Easter dinner on Saturday so that my friend could enjoy it with us. So many delicious dishes. We had slow cooked ham, devilled brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, cheese corn, scalloped potatoes, homemade buns and of course grasshopper pie for dessert!

Because my friend is such a close friend, we refer to her as Auntie with Ezri. This weekend Ezri started saying “Ahh-tee,” and it was the most adorable thing ever. She is slowly saying more and more things and it’s so cute every time she learns a new word or gesture. My baby is growing so much!!

Anyway, I know it’s going to be an even better Easter next year as Ezri continues to grow and learn!

Oh! On another note, I really want to write a post about knitting and my WIPs! I am hoping that will come soon!!! I am so excited about my current project so I want to share with everyone.

    Oh my gosh, she is so flippin’ cute!

    I’m glad you had such amazing Easter and got to spend it with a close friend. The holidays are always better when you get to share it with people you care about. Plus, who can’t be happy watching a little one as adorable as yours enjoy all the festive goodness?!

    I would totally love to see your knitting WIPs! I love knitting and I don’t know anyone else who does knitting. Everyone I know does crochet. Btw, crochet it easy to learn and the fact that you basically chose an intermediate skill (working in the round) to start with and did it well means that you will have no problem at all.

    Aww, that is so cute! How funny that Ezri wouldn’t use the basket 🙂 She looks adorable with her new stuffed animals and all the Easter eggs.

    That sounds like a great weekend and a delicious Easter dinner. I’m glad you were able to spend time with a close friend!
