Easter at the American Women’s Club of Brussels

by on Mar.22, 2009, under Belgium

Today we journeyed to the American Women’s where we had an egg hunt, create a craft, and ate munchies. Oh the munchies… the cookies, the cupcakes, the chips, the candy, the vegetables… wait, veggies? How would bring veggies? Yes you guessed right Annette (I will mention they were greatly received by others… Suckers!). Once placed in the crowning location, I quickly noted the spot and avoided it during my travels from our craft area to the cookies (oh the cookies) even if it took an extra steps 20 and 10 additional seconds (which just increased the anticipation of the cookies).

While I greedily munched on the food, Caitly and Annette decorated a small metal cup with stickers and color in a beautiful Easter fashion. The cup was then filled with a bulb and soil, then carefully watered. Now we have the anticipation of a beautiful flower to grace our home.

During the craft time, the Easter bunny and helpers were covering the grass outside with treats for the children to find. I use the term “find” loosely because all the children had to do was look where they stepped. The grass was COVERED with little treats. Caitlyn loved finding all the little choc-o-late eggs. She even found a large foiled wrapped bunny and jelly beans. She was in candy heaven, sneaking an egg whenever Annette and I were not watching. She had a plan… one for the basket, one to eat, one for the basket, one to eat… You get the idea.

Here in Belgium the small chocolate eggs are filled with chocolate, praline, hazelnut praline, or white chocolate. They are all really good, but I think the older kids preferred certain ones since they were looking for certain colored eggs, which is how you can tell what is in them. Fine with Caitlyn since they walked by small piles of eggs which she scooped up in to her basket.

The pictures from the day are posted in the Gallery or directly to the Easter 2009 AWCB Gallery.
