Easter + Extras
Hope everyone had a great Easter celebration! Last year we got into our house on Maundy Thursday and our stuff arrived on Good Friday, so we were still up to our necks in packing paper on Easter Sunday. We went to church and went back to unpacking. The next day was Caleb’s birthday which received even less observation than Easter. Easter is one of my favorite holidays, so I was extra excited to celebrate properly this year!
There are also a few random pictures from the past couple weeks.
Eggs for the traditional Easter bread. This year I tried a fun new technique put in my head by Martha Stewart to give the eggs some speckles by swirling them in cups of grains like rice or popcorn with dye mixed in. I think the larger the material, the larger the speckle, so the rice I used created a subtler effect than I was going for.
This year’s Easter bread.

Cody loved the bubbles he got in his Easter basket!
We set up a small egg hunt for Cody, see video below 🙂
We had a smaller crowd this year. Caleb hid the eggs so I got to be a hunter 🙂 We had one other AF friend who arrived right after this shot.
Cody was enthralled the first few days I put out my little decoration.
Thought it’d be fun to do a little size comparison photo set. Here’s the now…
And then: one week old. Awww.
After months of trying to teach Cody to use a spoon, something finally clicked when I let him try yogurt.
Cody has been really into loading and unloading his trucks, shopping cart, wagon, bucket, etc. with various objects and carrying them around
He’s also still all about being just like Mom and Dad. Here he is helping Daddy rehang our curtain rod…
