Easter was fun this year. Luke has no expectations about anything yet but can still join in the fun. My Parents came into town for a couple days to give me a little free time and enjoy Luke before Easter so that was really nice too. My Dad is a pastor so they didn’t stay through Easter but anytime with them is always a blessing.
We went to a local Church Easter Egg Hunt since our Church took the year off from hosting one.
Luke met the Easter Bunny! No fear in him. He just leaned in for a rather loooong hug. :)
It was a really funny to watch him “find” the eggs. He filled his basket half full twice and proceeded to dump them out twice while running and jumping around. It didn’t phase him at all and there where so many eggs that he still managed to fill it up a third time before we left. I think the turning point came when one broke open accidentally and he realized there was candy in it. We don’t allow sweets or treats very much at all and I suppose he thought he would get to eat it all. One piece made it in the mouth and the rest was confiscated. :)
The Easter Bunny was attacked mid hunt when Luke abandoned his basket and ran towards the bunny saying he wanted to hug him. He was rewarded for his persistence. And as we were walking towards the car, after the hunt to find a park, he told me he just wanted to hug the bunny one more time. He cracks me up!
I whipped this little bunny up the night before Easter using this Pinterest Pin the Original source ( that I can tell) is completely in Japanese? It was super simple and fast, and was passed over pretty quickly for the bulldozer and car. But I wouldn’t change making it for my little man.
He thought it was pretty cool to come downstairs to his basket and car. I am thankful for his innocence and naivety, I hope I can help him keep that, or just be super grateful for what he does get in future years. I found the cool car at a local resale I do about a month ago and have keep it hidden till now. Since his birthday and Christmas are kind of far away we decided to give him the car for Easter.
And here is my little man in his Easter Outfit. Complete with a mommy made bowtie and a fresh haircut. Man I love that kid.
How was your Easter? I Hope it was a wonderful day filled with Family and remembering the amazing sacrifice Jesus made for us.
This week we are potty training! Also David and I are embarking on a sweet / sugar based food free month. I am totally inspired by what Jami from thenatos has been doing since the beginning of Lent and decided that I needed to do this and try and make better choices for my health.
Wish my good luck as cutting sugar and potty training together while 6+ months pregnant might just be the end of me. ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
