Hoppy Easter!

Easter is always a fun holiday here at the Forbes household. We aren't religious so we celebrate as a welcome to Spring, and a special day together. It also falls RIGHT before the tax deadline, so it's always a low-key day for us.

The neighborhood Easter egg hunt

Poppy and SuSu sent some Easter presents!

The Easter bunny hid Anna's basket in the downstairs bathroom, and she only needed a couple of hints to find it. She got a Super Girl doll, a set of PJ Masks, a color-a-city kit, some Kindergarten workbooks, some little garden tools, and a body art kit.

Maddie found her basket inside the playhouse. She also got a PJ mask, as well as a Pre-K workbook, a mermaid doll, some Daniel Tiger books, a little play-dough set, and some sticker earrings - her favorite!

And chocolate bunnies too, of course!

The bunny also brought Steve an erector set as something fun he could do with the kids. Anna helped him build a catapult!

We were glad the Easter bunny brought crafts and toys - the day was gray and dreary and we spent the whole day inside while Steve worked. Their baskets gave them plenty of fun things to rotate through during the day.

The Pez candy dispensers were a big hit.

Getting decorated with some tattoos

The girls helped me bake and decorate a carrot bundt cake.

Maddie helped color some of Anna's city.

Our neighbors brought over some treats and the girls were thrilled to be able to use their ballerina decorations.

I decided to make a special Easter dinner so I made ham, green bean casserole, pasta, and peas. And we ate in the dining room, just to make it super special - the girls are always delighted when we eat there!

We hope you all had a wonderful Easter too!
