This Easter crept up on us with everything going on in the world and the COVID-19 pandemic. It was just a week before Easter that the “stay at home” order was announced so we were preoccupied with making sure we had our essential items. By the time we were getting into a routine, I realized that we only had a few days to prep for Easter. I placed an order on Amazon for a few things, but most items I ordered from Target with curbside pickup. Luckily, I was able to get everything in time and keep our traditions going. We had a great Easter weekend and really enjoyed the time at home with each other!
We decorated Easter eggs on Saturday night with the kids which was a perfect family thing to do, especially during quarantine! This is a favorite tradition at our house and seems to get more competitive as the kids get older! They are so creative and it’s fun to see what they come up with! This year we used the most basic egg decorating kit from Target and Sharpie Markers and they turned out to be some of our best work!
We had to come up with a new plan for Sunday since our typical Sunday would be spent at church. We did our usual Easter morning with baskets and a big breakfast. I usually make cinnamon rolls for Easter, but this year we had crepes and we all loved them so that might be a new tradition! We held our own church at home and had the kids participate…we all loved it! Blake surprised me on Easter with this original painting of Christ! It is beautiful! We played games in the afternoon while we prepped dinner. For dinner we grilled steaks with mashed potatoes, green beans, fruit, and homemade rolls. We ended the night with a bike ride and then we video chatted with extended family! It turned out to be a really nice, quiet and perfect Easter Weekend!
