Mundane Monday Morning Music: Madonna – “Holiday”

Mornin’ Readers!

In my neck of the woods, we are at the end of our official first long weekend of the year! It was good to have the family together for some down-time, and to just relax and have some fun. I am already counting down the days until our next long weekend!

For this week’s MMMM pick, I thought I would pick a song that reflects my wishes to leave winter for a while and to have some fun. That’s where Madonna comes in to play with her song “Holiday.” This song is fun, upbeat and gets me away from the chill of the season for a few moments.

Whether you are celebrating a long weekend or you are at work, I hope “Holiday” takes you away for a moment of fun and relaxation today!

Until my next post, Readers!

Reese’s Visit from the Easter Bunny

Hiya Readers!

It was our first Easter in our new home, so we couldn’t wait for the Easter Bunny to visit us and hide all of his sugary treats around our home. The past few years, my family has been in small apartments, so the hunt for Easter eggs was easy for our kids. This year, the Easter Bunny had three floors to leave presents for our kids, so we hoped it would be more fun and challenging for them!

I swear I closed my eyes for only a moment only to find pastel egg capsules all over our home! They were up high for our eldest, and in lower places for our younger two.

 

It took our little ones a while to find this one!

We even found some eggs in some funny and unusual places!

 

The Easter Bunny sure has a sense of humour!

The Easter Bunny even left a basket of treats for our kids on our dining table since they were too big and bulky to hide.

 

The chocolate tool set was my favourite of the three!

When our kids awoke on Easter morning, our younger daughter came downstairs with two eggs in her hands! Once our other two kids heard all of the commotion, they sprang out of their beds so they didn’t miss out on all of the Easter egg hunting fun.

Many breaks were taken as the kids became distracted by all of the chocolate and candy they were finding and eating along the way.

 

As you can see, our little guy couldn't wait to devour his new found loot!

Here's my eldest with some of her Easter treats. She could barely hold the ones she had found so far!

Here are just some of the eggs they found before we ate breakfast.  Tons more to find!

Overall, this year’s visit from the Easter Bunny was a success! By now, most of the eggs have been found (our eldest found two yesterday evening, and I think one or two are still floating around our house), and wave of sugar shock has come and gone, for now anyway! Hopefully, the Easter Bunny will be able to extend his hunt outside as it was too wet in our front and backyards for our kids to hunt for them there. Maybe I’ll even get a picture of the big guy next year…

Until my next post, Readers!
