Spring Cleaning after Easter
Spring cleaning time is here! Well, Spring is here at least. We’ve had some sunshine, and weather that has allowed us to leave the house without 3 layers. I think that’s cause for celebration. Plus, I have a re-cap of our Easter festivities.
As you may remember from Friday’s Post, Mr. B took full advantage of his first day of Spring Break. All three boys stayed in their pajamas until about 10 am, then I bribed them into getting dressed with a trip to Target. They love that store almost as much as I do. Mostly because they think they are getting some sort of toy or candy each time we go, which is not the case.
On this trip, I told them we wouldn’t be getting either because the Easter Bunny was coming with toys and candy on Sunday. However, I did let them pick out some Easter cookies, and we could take a trip to Daddy’s office to eat them. I also got a dozen eggs to color later that night. Oh! My biggest score was 3 straw hats from the Dollar Spot! You won’t be able to miss them in the pictures. They wouldn’t take them off. I think they are sleeping in them right now.
They terrorized everyone in the office for a good 15 minutes, then Little P managed to spill an entire cup of coffee on himself. Luckily, it was cold. So, back home we went.
I boiled the eggs, let them cool, and when Dad got home, it was coloring time. I’ll just let this picture speak to how it went.
Luckily, I put mats down on the kitchen floor.
On Saturday, we headed to my parent’s house for lunch and an Easter egg hunt. The boys got to play with their cousins, run around like crazy searching for eggs hidden in plain sight, and eat way too much chocolate. I’m glad there was wine. Here are a few pictures.
When we got home, we stopped them from eating more candy by having an impromptu dance/bubble party. Only the twins were in their diapers. The rest of us were fully clothed. Ok. Fully clothed in yoga pants and sweatshirts. Yeah, that was me.
Everyone was up super early, and ready to see if the Bunny came to our house. Actually, the twins were up super early, and then went to wake up Mr. B.
Then on to follow the cones to the baskets and eggs hidden in the living room. It was still dark outside, plus we’re in Wisconsin, so no outside hunt for us.
By 7 am, the hunt was over, everything was pulled from the baskets, and fighting over toys and chocolate had commenced. Fighting with each other over toys. Fighting with Mom and Dad over not being allowed chocolate at 7 am.
We finally convinced them to eat some of the hard-boiled eggs, which they mostly liked. By mostly, I mean they ate the white and spit out the yolk.
The afternoon, it was on to another egg hunt at Daddy’s brother’s house. There were tons of games, running, and more chocolate. By the time the boys got home, they were delirious from sugar and lack of sleep. I’m happy to report they finally took a nap on Monday afternoon…for 3 hours!!!
Back to Spring Cleaning
So, as I briefly mentioned in the beginning of this post, we were ready for Spring Cleaning. Well, I’ve actually come up with some changes for our family. Not only will these changes clean up our house, but help us become more active, less wasteful, and I hope, a happier family. You can read all about the changes we’re making over on Lose the Cape today.
