2018 Easter Recap!

Oh my gosh y’all! We had an amazing Easter. I think we may have started some new traditions too!

It’s been a while since I took the time to really write out a personal post, so let’s do this!

2018 Easter Recap

2018 Easter Recap!


Kody and I are Christians, so though we participate in traditional Easter, we also wanted to tie our faith in. We got veggie tales Easter movies, Easter books from a Christian store, and stuffed animals that have “Jesus loves me” on one foot.

When the boys woke up, we brought them to the hearth where their baskets were ready and got to see them dig through, and eventually Wade asked if the Easter bunny hid the eggs.


Egg Hunt

So, a local church hosted a fundraiser offering to hide eggs in yards for a donation. Which was AMAZING, y’all. Saturday at dusk, they came out and egged our backyard. It was great, we received 80 eggs.

This part was amazing! Kade is turning two next month, so this was his first year to understand what he was doing and he really enjoyed it

Wade was SO excited the Easter bunny came. He kept mentioning how many eggs there were, and pointing out all of the colors. After he found 40 (exactly), he wanted to go inside and start opening them!

Final count:

Wade: 40


Mom and Dad: 2

Yard: 2 (we couldn’t find them!)


I had seen a few recipes on Pinterest I wanted to try! The deviled eggs came out nicely, but I wish the cinnamon rolls were shaped a bit better.

The casserole was deicious, but we forgot an egg so it was runnier than it should have been.


After the kids napped, we took a drive up to visit Kody’s family, and we’re so glad we did. The ride up was a little bumpy, but all moods were good once we were surrounded by those we love.

I have the best in-laws around. From the direct in-laws, to the brothers, sisters and cousins, they have not once made me feel like I wasn’t part of the family. From the horror stories you hear, I’m so thankful I don’t experience that.

The kids had another egg hunt, I got a heart-to-heart with my sister-in-law, my husband got to take off on horses with his brother and get some bonding time in, and I sat and had conversations with everyone individually at some point.

I hopped on a horse for a second, Kody and his brother did some tricks on the saddle, Kody got bucked (caught on tape!), and then we played some football and headed home.

We needed this day.

Today, Kody and I are kicked off our Monday with a gym date, my first one since my gallbladder surgery two weeks ago!
