Painting Easter Memories

Throwing this little Easter egg painting party for my two little mans was a lot of fun. My husband was traveling for the Air Force and returned just in time for Easter morning. In the past it’s been hard for me to feel like celebrating holidays when I know that he will miss them {or all the festivities leading up to them}. Over the years I’ve had to learn to “adjust my sails” & learn to sometimes celebrate as three instead of four. I’m not perfect but inching toward better.
This sunny afternoon was our way of creating a little tradition of our own.

We baked chocolate chip muffins & Kevin requested popcorn with extra butter for our little egg decorating picnic. I brought out some of my favorite Easter books & Kevin read them while I set up the table {my husband’s makeshift utility table for cutting drywall… I want him to make one for our dining room & he laughs at me}. Damian ate all the chocolate chips & none of the muffins. His brother had to paint with little fingers always ready to steal the eggs, but he was a good sport. Kevin picked the tulips from our yard & even styled them for me. My soon to be two year old also painted the three gold eggs… I can’t even describe what it’s like to see Kevin & Damian get so excited about becoming little artists! ♥

Kevin’s birthday party was a lot of fun as well, there will definitely be pictures coming soon!

I’ll close with some black & white images from our day! ♥

    This is so sweet, Andrea! I love how special you made it for your boys.

    I thought of you & our very fun shoot from last year… because this was fun but very chaotic (making sure Damian didn’t run into the road, etc). The one at your house was so peaceful in comparison, lol!

    Ha! If they’re anything like my little nephews, I bet it was quite the adventure : )

    Jaclyn, thank you! I always say that it stays long not out of patience but neglect, lol! An inch here or there is a good thing though! Keeps it healthy 🙂
