Easter with TWO

Two boys that is, hope no-one thought that Easter may have passed by with two eggs or anything ridiculous like that.  Because I would actually die if I only had two eggs.  Each day.

I am a chocolate addict and Easter is my Las Vegas baby!  Hello Creme Eggs.

Pretty much the best thing ever about the addition of Nixon to our family is how much his presence multiplies everything that Ethan enjoys and experiences by a factor of like, a million.  Five minutes after waking up and beginning his egg hunt {which involved E carrying around his 11kg baby brother and letting Nix grab all of the eggs}, Ethan declared 2014 The Best Easter Ever.  Considering he received the smallest stash of chocolate ever in his 9 year Easter history, I’m going to claim that as a big fat win!




We ‘pottered around’ over the long weekend, ticking off to-do list chores.  We rented a Rug Doctor and I cleaned all of the carpets {a job I kinda love, almost like water blasting you know? No?}.  We visited my grandparents, baked Hot Cross Buns, jumped with joy every damn time it rained – a full tank is the business people, my longing for rain is now over for another year.  I also started and completed my pillowcase project, sewing 6 in total for the boys.  I may like to shop but I will not spend $45 on one trendy pillowcase for a child ::am I wrong?::

So, with the help of Team Instagram we troubleshot my machines tension problem and the little Globe-877-that-could whipped up some very cute flannelette pillowcases for the boys.

There were quite a few other mini-projects and bits and bobs either started or completed, plus we made time for drinks with a friend, a Date Night In and skateboarding for Dave and shopping for me {at Spotlight and Mitre 10 nonetheless!}.

Hope you and yours had a lovely break before winter sets in once and for all, chow down on those eggs mama’s you deserve ’em xx

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
