We had a great time even though the weather was freezing and it rained yesterday.
Friday night...I had not yet planned a menu for Easter which is so completely unlike me. I didn't feel like Ham so I asked iKeith what he thought. This is normally a dangerous thing to do and I avoid it at all costs.
He decided he wanted to smoke some meat so Saturday morning we went to our favorite new store. Marczyk's Fine Foods. He selected a super thick bone in Rib Eye and a Pork Tenderloin while I ate samples and picked out a couple bottles of wine.
We then realized that Alex hadn't eaten breakfast and he was famished! (Mommy Fail) We had to find a pizza place quickly!
Thank goodness for the iPhone and Yelp. Within minutes I had located a restaurant and was telling iKeith where to go. (Mommy Win!) The Walnut Room has Chicago Style Thin Crust Pizza....which was confusing to me because I had always thought of Chicago Style as being deep dish. Anyway....it was really good and children were happy again.
I got tricked into playing Harry Potter LEGO game but I had wine so it was all good!
Sunday morning the kids woke up early and came to tell us that they had only found two eggs. They thought the Easter Bunny was a jerk and didn't love them. What kind of crap was this anyway? Well...the deal was...that the Easter Bunny had worked really hard on a scavenger hunt and there were more eggs but they were hidden and the eggs contained clues and the kids had just ruined part of it.
I found the scavenger hunt late on Saturday night and had to hide the eggs twice because I screwed it up the first time. The printable is on the Happy Home Fairy and I'm anxious to check her website out further.
I recorded part of the hunt and completely choked up telling them about Jesus. Mallory's react was priceless and my darling son...well. You'll have to see for yourself. Easter Hunt Video Here. The kids LOVED the hunt and talked about it all day. They think that the Easter Bunny was STILL in the apartment while they were in the living room because the Easter Bags were not in bed with me and iKeith when the kids came to wake us up. It's MAGIC!
Later I made these. If you love Cherry...you'll be in love! If you don't love Cherry you can use whatever fruit filling you like. YUM!
