We had a surprise sleepover my 2 nieces (2 and 4 years) arrived in the middle of the night to stay. In the morning when my 3 children woke up they were soooo surprised that the girls were over. After all that excitement I pulled out the Easter gifts. Some how I had 2 extra bunnies which I could give to the girls. After that it was breakfast and then lots of Easter craft, making baskets, decorating eggs etc......
The rest of the family arrived for a family BBQ at lunch and then we put on an egg hunt for the children. I used plastic eggs and hid a fun gift in 5 of them. Once they found all the plastic eggs they came and traded them in for choc eggs. Great deal hey plastic of Chocolate. My dog was most upset this year as she was not able to swipe any of the hidden eggs.
All ready to egg hunt.
Showing Aunty Shi what they found
The only sound that could be heard was the rustle of confectioners foil.
The adults did our best to make the day fun for the children while we were also dealing with a tragic accident. My sister in laws sister was in a terrible car accident and 2 of her children passed away and her other child is very badly injured, as is the mother. Which is why I ended up with the girls over for a sleepover. After the long day my husband and I had the hardest job, we had to tell our 5 year old what had happened and why she would not be seeing her friends again and that her other friend is very badly hurt. My daughter went to kindy with the children as well as seeing them at family functions and was very upset.
Please spend time with your children and loved ones laugh and hug them lots, life is so quick and can be taken so fast. In an instant everything can change.
Please pray with me for the little girl and her mother for both their physical bodies and emotionally and the family and friends.
