A few days before Easter Paige got to dye some eggs. She loves doing this every year and she gets to do all of them herself. Next year might be a little different in Baylor wants to join in but this year Baylor was content to watch. Paige was disappointed through the week when I would peel her beautiful creations to use the hard boiled egg.
Friday was a really nice day and Paige and Nate had fun being outside cleaning up the yard while I was in taking a nap with Baylor. It was cute seeing them work together and explore the yard.
Easter weekend fell on conference weekend this year. I always like it when this happens. It is a nice weekend to stay home and listen to the church leaders and hear their messages and also celebrate Easter. This conference was really neat to see the solemn assembly and the new prophet being sustained by the church. I was trying to make it a more spiritual moment with Paige but she was SO talkative that I felt the entire time I was telling her to stop talking so I could listen to what was happening. Oh well! It was still really neat to witness and I loved seeing the tears in President Nelson's eyes as he was being sustained by the whole church. It was really good to listen to all their messages and to have all these good reminders what things I needed to hear and to be better at. I printed off a whole bunch of church activities for Paige to do throughout the four sessions. It kept her busy most of the time and her favorite one was coloring the tie of the apostles and the first presidency when it was their turn to talk. When it was someone other than an apostle she was disappointed because she didn't get to color their tie.
In between the two Saturday conference sessions, Anna and Scott and their family came over for an Easter egg hunt. The kids had a lot of fun!
Baylor even found her Easter eggs though they didn't have candy in them. :) And every time she wears this jacket she licks it which is kind of funny and now we have a picture of her doing it to always remember.
Saturday was such a beautiful day! We spent most of the time when not watching conference outside.
She is such a beautiful girl- inside and out!
Paige and I planted some flower seeds. We will see if they grow!
Paige left the Easter bunny a note before heading to bed on Saturday.
Happy Easter! Paige was excited to find her Easter basket hiding in the pantry and even found Baylor's for her. Nate and I's Easter baskets were packed away and Baylor doesn't have one. So Saturday we decorated some brown paper bags for our baskets. Paige had her though so she decorated Baylor's bag. The Easter bunny also hid some eggs for Paige to find. She got some candy, an owl shirt, and some markers that smell. And Baylor got an owl onesie. Paige was excited to have a matching shirt with her sister.
Happy Easter from my two cute girls in their owl shirts!
