We had a lovely relaxed Easter – yummy lunch with Keren and Nick, cinnamon rolls and tea with the Fredricks’, and an Easter egg hunt.

Cuddles with Keren
Grace and Eli had a mini Easter egg hunt when they woke up this morning, and the first thing that everyone in the house ate this morning was a chocolate egg.

Donné has been doing some activities with Grace and Eli in the build up to Easter
Grace made Easter egg holders by gluing tissue paper onto egg boxes, then stuffing the sections with tissue paper and Easter eggs, and gluing a ribbon on for a handle
Finger painting Easter eggs
Eli was supposed to be finger painting with Grace, but his plan was to put his fingers into the paint, then wash it off, rinse and repeat. So he just ended up playing with one of his favourite toys – water.
Donné, Grace and Eli baked a delicious cake for us to share for afternoon tea on a relaxing Good Friday
Eli was having fun playing with the little cars and ramp he got for Christmas
He is in underwear because we’re in the process of potty training. Still very low key, but he is going well. He is definitely aware of when he has done something and let’s us know (with shouting and pointing), now he needs to learn to get there before he has done anything. We have consistently been getting morning wees in the potty and he even made a little poo in the potty today. He is definitely getting the idea.
