Easter Recap

Did everyone have a nice Easter?  Everyone here had a nice day.  They all decided to get a bit dressed up this year since everyone was here.  I thought it would be nice to get photos of everyone in their fancy clothes.

First off–all of the siblings:

Sophia & Rebecca; Allie & Christine

Lanie & Emily; Abby & Zara

Ryan & Jenny

Then I got pictures of the cousins:

Cassandra & Alya;  Fiona & Kanani

And then everyone else!

Josh, Shivan & Louisa;  Kit, Jan & Marie-Grace

After a nice Easter dinner, everyone just hung out, talking about a variety of things.

Looks like Abby has a new friend!

As the day wore on, dinner wore off, so someone ordered a pizza!

 

Louisa has started piano lessons recently, so she decided to play for everyone!

I hope you had a wonderful Easter, the gang here definitely did.  Even though the weather was kind of chilly, they certainly found plenty to do!

This is the first post I’ve done in a very long time that involved all of the dolls.  I forgot how long it took to get everyone dressed, it was about 2 hours from start to finish!  I think it will be a while before I do THAT again! 

 

Happy Easter!!

Hi guys, Emily here!! It’s Good Friday, which means that Sunday is Easter.  I love Easter!  Not just for the candy, but for all of the things it symbolizes and the story of Christ dying to save us all.  Lanie and I both sing in the choir, we will be performing for the Easter Sunrise Service at our church.  We’ve been practicing really hard.

I decided this year for Easter I wanted to do something really special.  I’ve been saving up my allowance money and mom took me shopping so I could have a special surprise for all of my friends.  Any idea of what it might be??  Oh wait!  Hang on, I forgot something that might help you figure out what I’m doing!!!

Any ideas on what I might be doing now?  If you guessed that I’m going to be the Easter Bunny, you guessed right!

I’ve got this big basket of chocolate candy to share with all of my friends!  I’m so excited, I hope they are too.

(Abby) Hi Emily, what are you doing here?

I’m pretending to be the Easter Bunny and I’ve brought enough candy here so that each of my friends get a piece!

(Allie)  How sweet!!! I definitely want a chick!

(Abby) I think I’ll take a bunny!

Did everyone get one?  Happy Easter everybody!!

On to the next room!

(Jan) Hi Emily, what have you got there?

I’ve got a basket of candy and I’m sharing it with all of my friends.  You each get to pick a piece!

(Josh)  How nice of you Emily!  I think I’d like a chick!

Happy Easter Josh!

On to the next rooms!  I found Christine and Shivan next, and then Cassandra, Fiona and Zara.

After I’d been all over the house and visited everyone…

my basket was empty!!!  I had just enough for everyone.  I wonder if this is what the Easter Bunny feels like after he (or maybe it’s a she?) is finished?!  That was fun though, I’m glad I decided to share with my friends!

HAPPY EASTER!!!

Easter Monday (or recovering from the sugar rush!)

The girls didn’t have school on Monday so Abby and Zara came over to play. They brought the toys that the Easter Bunny gave them along, so we decided to get photos of everyone.

Easter Monday
Abby, Cassandra and Marie-Grace each got a Barbie doll. Cassandra also got a Barbie car, Marie-Grace got a horse and Abby got a guitar for her doll. I see lots of Barbie play around here in the coming months!

Kit got this cute hat that looks like a leopard. She absolutely loved it, she even wanted to sleep in it!

Easter Monday 3
Zara, Rebecca and Alya all got great big stuffed bunnies. They won’t forget the Easter Bunny with these around! Alya was especially excited, right now she doesn’t have any of her toys because they are still on their way here from London. She gave him a great big hug!
Easter Monday 4

The Easter Bunny also left something for all of the girls to share: An Apples to Apples Junior Game! You can imagine how hard everyone laughed when Abby and Zara showed up with theirs too. I see an Apples to Apples tournament in the near future!

Easter Monday 6

I hope everyone had a terrific Easter! Did the Easter Bunny bring you something special? When I was growing up, if it was time to get a new bicycle, we always got them at Easter. My favorite thing about Easter though is all the candy, I love all the ones that are only available at Easter time: Peeps, Cadbury Mini Eggs, Solid eggs with different fillings (my fave is Crispy!)–so many to choose from. What is your favorite Easter candy?
