Easter 2020

Easter looked a bit different this year, as do a lot of things right now.  We used chalk to leave a Good Friday message for our neighborhood then watched our church's Good Friday service after the kids went to bed.
Saturday we had fun coloring eggs.  A neighbor gave us a tie dye kit, which was actually easier than traditional ways.  We put an egg in each back, put in a few drops and then you rubbed it on.  Both kids had a great time with it!
Esme even took over the camera at one point and took this picture of me.  She also took pictures of all of her eggs in progress and the final products.  If this continues, you might start seeing more of me on here.
No nap means falling asleep on the couch.  We finished the evening with a walk through the park.
We woke up Sunday morning to a surprise on the front step, M&Ms and Brookside Crunchy Clusters which might be my favorite thing ever now!  We still don't know who dropped them off, but we feel special that they thought of us.
I planned to use chalk on the driveway again, but knew there was snow coming, so I made a sign to tie to the tree instead.
We waited to do Easter baskets until Jimmy was home from work.  I practically had to wrestle Esme in to her dress, but we did it!
Thanks to Target Drive-Up I was able to get them a few treats.
They both also got sweet Easter gifts from Esme's daycare provider.  They both loved opening the eggs to see what was inside.
I was really wanting a traditional Easter dinner this year, but didn't want to cook everything with only Jimmy and myself to eat.  Hy-Vee to the rescue with an Easter meal for 2.  We got ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, rolls, and a small french silk pie.
Everything was tasty to the last lick!
Happy Easter!
