Easter in Pictures....and a few words

Easter this year was a little different than normal.  We went to church early Sunday 8:30 a.m. early, and then didn't do Easter lunch but instead had our Easter tacos for dinner Sunday night.  And while I do prefer Easter lunch to Easter dinner, we all still had a great time.  The girls had an outstanding day eating candy, hunting eggs and eating more candy.  Sadly, I did not get a single picture of Isabelle in her dress or Lawson in his new Easter threads.  Such is life.

My bro, Danny and my niece, Lauren.

Danny and my sis in law Katie.

Even Jason got in on the egg hunt.  Don't you love his pink basket???

Isabelle with candy.  She has not stopped asking for more candy.

Easter baskets for the girls....with a fun new chair for the backyard.

Molly....hyped up on sugar.

It is pretty tricky explaining the meaning of Easter to a two year old and a three year old.  We tried our best to make sure they knew Easter wasn't about bunnies and eggs and candy, but who knows.  I think that next year I may incorporate Emily's idea and not go quite so candy crazy.  I hope you all had a great Easter!  And if you have ideas for how to explain Easter to little ones I would love to hear them!

  1. What fun pictures - hunting eggs is so fun, isn't it?! I ended up saving some of the stash for us :) Sophie still asks for candy each morning....sigh.
