Easter looked a lot different this year for a lot of us. I missed spending time with my family and participating in family traditions, but I still tried to make it a positive experience for Henry! Normally, we would head to my moms to celebrate the holiday, but obviously wasn't able to do so this year. Even though it was tough, we started some of our own traditions!
I woke up early to make Joanna Gaines' overnight french toast bake for breakfast. It was fun to get up before everyone else and enjoy a cup of coffee while baking breakfast. It was super yummy and a big hit with Henry! While the french toast was baking, I got Henry up and let him open his basket. This year we got him things he needed for summer, like sandals, sunglasses, shorts, etc. We also got him a Paw Patrol watch and a Marshall race car.
After breakfast, we went out in the backyard and had our very own Easter egg hunt! Henry loved walking around the yard with the dogs on the hunt for eggs. Once he opened one, he was more interested in the snickers inside them! Being the photographer mom that I am, I of course took pictures. After the hunt, we came inside and I left Henry alone for maybe five minutes. I came back and he had ate three egg fulls of M&Ms! As soon as he saw me, he said, "more M&M?" He definitely did not get more and was banned from chocolate for the rest of the day!
We spent the majority of the day just hanging out on the couch and watching movies. We watched Scooby Doo Zombie Island 2 and Trolls. While Henry was napping, Jacob and I watched Game of Thrones (we have recently jumped on that bandwagon!) We found out that our favorite pizza place, Fat Cats was open, so that's what we had for dinner.
Normally, we would have a big Easter dinner, but we needed a grocery run and I honestly didn't feel like cooking. So, we celebrated the Horvath way. It was really difficult not being able to celebrate with family or head to my mom's or grandma's like we usually do, but we loved them and celebrated with them from afar!
As the world continues to change during this pandemic, I'm determined to stay positive despite times being tough. I encourage you to do the same! It can be easy to be upset and frustrated and to stay that way until it ends, but it doesn't get anyone anywhere and it sure doesn't make you feel better. Sending so much love your way and know that we are all in this together!
