Last Weekend

We had a great, long Easter weekend.  It was a little atypical because for the first time I can remember, it was just us – me, the hubby and the Ms.  Grandma and Grandpa aren’t back from Florida yet for the winter, and my family is all in Texas.  Saturday, we stayed entertained working on some final Easter decorations… Stain glass Easter eggs with contact paper and tissue squares.

Sunday morning the girls had a blast going through their Easter baskets.  Then, we went to mass, where Big M sang songs from the Frozen soundtrack while the choir sang songs of worship and admired the “fancy princess windows”, aka stained glass. As a fun added bonus, mass was said by a visiting priest from our alma mater, Notre Dame.  Go IRISH!

After mass, we went to a fancy brunch at our favorite local restaurant.  Big M thought it was great fun to pick out all her own food, especially desserts, and proclaimed, “I LOVE brunch!”  Lil’ M ate the equivalent of her own body weight in pasta, bacon and dessert, and was more than ready for a nap when we got home.  I entertained Big M during quiet time, playing a memory game and doing a giant floor puzzle, while the Easter bunny was busy hiding eggs… She about sprinted down the stairs and out the back door when she heard the egg hunt was on!

We wound down the day by making Get Well cards for our neighbor, and grabbing a bite out for dinner.  How was your Easter or Passover weekend?

Thank you to all the bloggers who joined in for We Love Weekends on a holiday weekend!  While it was hard to pick just three, these were my favorite posts of the weekend.

We Love Weekends Features 2015-04-10

I am a big fan of trash to crafting treasure… which two of this week’s features fulfill.

From Nemcsok Farms, I loved these Egg Carton Bumble Bees.  With all the egg cartons holding the remnants of last week’s hard boiled colored eggs, we certainly have the supplies on hand to try these!

My second trash to crafting treasure fav comes from Best Toys 4 Toddlers with her how to on creating Tin Foil Bangles.  My girls LOVE jewelry, so I know they will be ecstatic to make these and wear them all the time.

And last but not least, Royal Little Lambs shared a great outdoor activity exploring primary colors with Rain Painting.  We have done several color mixing activities in the past, and Big M always thinks it is magical.  With April upon us, there should certainly be plenty of rain to test this activity with.
