But sickness aside, the babies quickly caught on to the idea of filling their baskets with eggs, although Trystan preferred to open them and eat the goodies inside as she went! We got lots of fun pics and one family photo in the process. Thanks to my mom and my younger brother for stuffing and "hiding" the eggs!
(Warning: photos galore coming up!)
The husband was off work the next day and we headed over to this parents house for our Easter celebration there. It was extra special since the husband's grandmother had stayed in town an extra day so she could see both us and the quads. They loved getting to run around new territory and my mother-in-law gifted them adorable chick Easter bags filled with all kinds of goodies! Her house also got peppered with goldfish and mini M&M's, since she'd filled all the plastic eggs with treats and the babies were now pros at popping them open and gobbling up whatever was inside...minus a few stray pieces. ;)
I have to say, Harrison looked pretty dapper in his tie! He was able to worth it for both occasions, it was a very worthwhile $5 investment at Target. And the girl's were adorable in their pink sailor dresses (also an Easter gift from my mother-in-law) and pink and white straw hats I'd snagged in the dollar section at Target. Cute cute cute!
It was a great holiday for us and next year we hope to make it to church with the kiddos. In fact, attending a local church is something we'd like very much to be able to begin doing soon. Hopefully we can find a place that is a great fit for both us and the quads with a great children's ministry! Meanwhile, we certainly enjoyed reflecting upon our blessings and the wonderful miracle of Jesus' death and resurrection as well as spending time both with family and at home, just the six of us.
Well, I'm finally back in the saddle after dealing with the quads being pretty sick for the past week and a half, Kailey having a very bad allergic reaction to some meds—but no ER trip needed, thankfully—and recovering from making all the rounds for Easter. (It still takes me a couple days to get my energy back!) Look forward to a Weekend Recap and some Tyke Bites posts coming soon as well as deets on my very exciting upcoming weekend getaway!
