I was so happy that I was able to spend this Easter fully enjoying the company of my husband. Last year I had worked a 10 hour graveyard shift so all I had wanted to do was sleep all day. This year was definitely an improvement!

We woke up Sunday morning to the realization that we'd unfortunately overslept our alarms and had missed most of Church. Derek jumped out of bed and ran into the living room to hide my eggs while I slowly got up and found some comfy pajamas to wear. It took me about 3 minutes to find all my eggs. The hardest one to find was in the lights of one of the ceiling fans! I then hid Derek's eggs in our room and he found them all in about a minute. Not many hiding places in there lol. Derek boiled some eggs and we got down to the task of dying them.

It's really fun to dye eggs! I hadn't had the pleasure of doing it the past few years so it was nice to do something fun and spend the time with Derek, acting like little kids lol. We had bought a dye kit that came with stickers of eyes and mouths so we could make little faces on our eggs. We had fun sneakily making the faces to show each other. Once we finished with our eggs and took some pictures, we decided we were hungry and ate our funny-faced eggs.

All the eggs laughing because he cracked his shell

Last year Derek had given me an Easter basket but unfortunately I didn't return the favor. This year I made sure that didn't happen again. When we finished our lunch of eggs, we gave each other our baskets and it was fun to see how happy he was that I had gotten him something. Definitely something to remember for the future.

We spent the rest of our day relaxing until it was time to go to Derek's aunt's house for dinner. It's always fun visiting with her and her family and the meals are always fantastic. We spent more time visiting family, went for a drive, then came home. My brother-in-law Tyler is taking mission prep classes right now as he is getting his mission call any day now so he asked if he could come over and give us the first discussion. He came and Derek helped him out with it. It was so fun to see the kind of things my wonderful hubby had done on his mission and he was so at ease and in his element. It was amazing to see. At least we got our spiritual thoughts in for the day though so that's good. All-in-all, it was a fantastic Easter and we enjoyed every minute of it!

p.s: I tried a new thing on the photos, made them look like they were taken in the 60's. I rather like it :)
