Easter Playdate 2011

I have had this little dream of hosting a holiday themed playdate since I became a stay at home mom.  One excuse after another, I just haven’t managed to get it all together to live out this dream…until TODAY!  Today Addie and I hosted the first of what I think will be our annual Easter Playdate!  We had a blast!!!! We had some of our friends over for crafts, snacks, and even  a real Easter Egg Hunt!  It was a blast!  I’ll let the pictures do the talking!!!

 

Craft Table, complete with crosses, bookmarks, and egg-guys just waiting to be markered and stickered!!

Before our guests arrived, Addie had to give the crafts a test drive. Smile

After everyone left, Addie showed Rylee her birthday present!  They had fun!  Thank you Granny and Papa for helping us get this for Addie!

And once it was just us, I stripped Addie down so we can get one more wear out of her Easter outfit Sunday.  Just like yesterday it needed a good spray and wash treatment and a run through the washer.  She was a happy girl having her friends over today!  Have I mentioned lately how much I love being this little girl’s mommy?
