make something monday :: pajama day

Happy Monday my sweet Friends. Did you all have a wonderful Easter weekend? We most certainly did. Saturday was a gloriously gorgeous day here in Seattle with sunshine and blue skies and an Easter egg hunt with family and friends! We look forward to my families annual Easter egg hunt all year and this one did not disappoint. It is always so fun to see the parents getting into the action. My Dad and Step-Mom literally hide about 500 eggs and when they give the green light to start searching it's hard to not instantly turn into a kid and get the fever as my Dad puts it. Grabbing armloads of eggs with the little ones. There were smiles all around - and lots of candy and prizes too!
Sunday we were at our Church bright and early just before 7am to celebrate with our Church family - it was a blessed morning. I had my *team* helping me with my three little ones. Grandma and Grandpa with the boys and Auntie Claire with Josie. I could not have made it through three services without them but am always thankful for the opportunity to serve on Easter at Church.  We finally left Church after 1pm and finished out the weekend with a big family dinner yesterday afternoon and then the kids came home to a special package from the Easter bunny (thanks Mom) that they enjoyed tearing into before bed. It was wonderful!

But this morning our family is all still sick. We have been fighting sinusitis all around for the past few weeks, lot of antibiotics and Kleenex and some rough nights. So today I told the boys it was pajama day. We've pulled our blankets and pillows and favorite books and movies into the play room. I manage to make our favorite scones and some eggs for a late breakfast and we are curled up together hunkered down listening to the return of the rain and trying to feel better. No real crafting happening around our home for today but these scones - they are SO GOOD!
Recipe is courtesy of Prudent Baby. I have made them many times most recently with white whole wheat flour and milk instead of the cream. Easy and tasty on a pajama day at home. Recipe can be found HERE!
I hope you are all able to rest and recoup from all the fun you had over the weekend. I will be back soon hopefully feeling better but if someone could let baby Josie know that sleep actually helps you fight the flu that would be great. Sleeping is not her fav I am convinced she just doesn't want to miss anything. OK back to vegging out with my babies today hope you have a good one!
