Easter 2016

Happy Easter 2016

I hope everyone had a safe & Happy Easter over the past weekend.  I have had a lovely Easter, so much so that I’m actually chalking it up to one of our more/most successful ones..

Initially I was bummed that we were unable to join the rest of the family in Bundaberg to farewell a much-loved family member who is moving away, but in the end our weekend turned out just what we needed it to be – a restful one. We didn’t get up to much, it was quite relaxing really ~ we watched movies, ate yummy food, caught up on crossword puzzles, played in the backyard, went for a bush walk and generally chilled out.  It was so nice to not have to be anywhere or do anything. We’ve been quite busy lately so the change of pace was definitely well received.  And if you can’t relax on a 4 day long weekend, when can you?!

Our Easter was celebrated over 2 weekends, last weekend with my Stepchildren and this weekend as our smaller family unit.  Last weekend we gave the kids Pyjama’s, a beach towel and a chocolate bunny, this weekend we celebrated a little larger (as I still like to keep the main focus on the actual day) there were more presents for the boys as well as their eggs from the Easter Bunny.

My boys spoilt me rotten as per usual with 2 pairs of Winter Pj’s and my fave Lindt Easter pack.  Flannie Pj’s at Easter is a bit of a tradition in our family at Easter time (which stems from my childhood) I’ve always been given warm pyjamas, dressing gowns and slippers for as long as I can remember at Easter time, so I too have done the same.  The boys got new dressing gowns this year as well & I had a giggle at the PJ top I bought Hubby that says ‘Don’t go Bacon my Heart’.  With Easter being so early this year, I’m not too sure when I’ll get to wear my Winter woolies, but when the cold comes, I’m ready for it!

Easter Spoilt

Mum & Dad came over for Easter Brunch on Sunday which was nice, I served it all buffet style ~ we had your Sunday morning staples such as Bacon, Eggs, Garlic Mushrooms, Onions, Tomatoes, Croissants & Toast.  After they left we spent the afternoon at the Walkabout Creek Nature Centre, such a great place.. I’ll write more about it on the blog later this week but seeing a Platypus for the first time in real life, was AMAZING!

On the whole I managed to fulfil all of my Easter expectations.. from making little goodie bags for Mr 4’s kindy friends, right down to the lamb roast for dinner & the marshmallow bunnies I searched high & low for all day Saturday (pictured below)

Elusive but tasty bunny..

    I love any Cadbury eggs. Yum. We had a busy Easter, but a good one. I am kinda glad the kids still have two weeks of school left in SA as I needed a break after that weekend. It was nice and peaceful here today. I will enjoy the sleep ins though and not having to be organised when the holidays do get here.

    I think flannie pjs at Easter is awesome. We gave our great niece a pair this easter as she’s too young for chocolate. So cute.

    The marshmallow bunny looks good. I want to just reach through the screen and break a bit off :)

      Sounds like you guys had a good Easter, I can hardly believe we’re nearly at the end of the school holidays! The marshmallow bunny was really nice, not too sweet, just right :) x

    We enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing Easter weekend as well. It was also my son’s birthday on Monday so it was a mixture of Easter festivities and birthday cheer – just what we needed!

    I see lots of people do the pyjama things for Easter. It’s a good idea really. I should think about that next year.
