Jamie fell asleep on the couch in his clothes the night before Easter. We didn't want to wake him so we just slipped his pull-up on (he still doesn't wake during the night to go to the restroom) and left him in his shirt for the night. We slipped him into his bed without really waking him up.
Dynisha wanted her hair rolled so she would have pretty curls for church on Easter. I rolled her hair with socks, leaving the top uncurled so she could have a smooth up-do the following day. We let her stay up pretty late. We waited for hours for Brianna only to find out she had opted to stay at home. I was a little bummed. This is the first Easter we haven't had all the kids. I'm glad we at least had Dynisha. The holidays are just so much more fun with more children.
After the kids were sound asleep I began the task of setting up for Easter. Originally, I had planned a fun lunch "party". I had to decorate and make a breakfast party instead. I made pretty ribbons for the chairs and set up the table the night before to make the room a little festive when the kids got up.
I saved the kids Easter baskets and eggs from last year. I bought large baskets with lovely liners last year. I'm planning on using them every year from here on out. I had to cut back on Easter a bit this year, but got some great deals on the toys so the kids didn't feel the pinch any. I keep an eye on the clearance isle at Walmart and it pays off.
Dinner was a simple affair. We had hot dogs with a cucumber and tomato salad. Jamie at almost three hot dogs all by himself. You wouldn't believe how much a skinny boy like that can eat!
