Easter Sunday 2014


After mopping the floors and boxing up just about all the bunny decorations I'm finally sitting down to go through all of our pictures from our wonderful Easter Sunday.  Just like every other holiday it went by too fast and was filled with a lot of fun!  The girls ran around outside playing with their uncles and even got to run through the sprinklers for a bit since someone(not mentioning any names here) forgot to turn off the sprinklers in the backyard!  Brooklyn was soaked but having a blast and I was laughing too hard to even stop her.


Our morning began around 6 am when Brooklyn climbed into our bed to cuddle, which means squish mommy out of the bed while daddy has his entire side to himself.  Kayla came in shortly after and since there was no way I was going to be able to go back to sleep with so little space I got up and told the girls to wait in the room and work on waking daddy up.  They were as patient as they could be until we gave in and let them loose.  Their baskets this year were a hit, the bunny did a great job!


For sentimental reasons I had the girls sit together before searching for their eggs because I remembered clearly the picture below taken on Brooklyn's first Easter.


Why are they so big already!!!


The bunny left behind two chick eggs full of money, Kayla was quite excited to find the first one!


Around 2 o'clock family began to arrive, the girls looked so cute in their Easter dresses.





After dinner the uncles and daddy hid some more eggs so the kids could have one last egg hunt.





It's hard to believe another holiday is already over and Summer is just around the corner.  The girls are getting so big I wish time would just slow down.


My Easter Poem
by Kayla

Easter is here.  
Bees are buzzing, 
eggs are hatching, 
mommy's are feeding their newborn babies.
So if you see a newborn baby on a hike or walk, that must mean that Spring is here!
Easter

Decorating Easter Eggs

The other night we decorated our Easter eggs, the girls are getting a little better about doing them on the their own so it's not as stressful as the years past.  They really liked that they got to put stickers on the eggs after they dried.  The egg dye set also came with glitter but mommy nixed that idea when she realized we didn't want glitter all over our deviled eggs when she peeled off the shells come Easter morning!












Happy Easter Friends!!


Preschool Easter Hunt

Thursday Brooklyn had her Easter egg hunt at preschool and I got to stick around to help hide the eggs and set up their fun snack for the morning.  I love staying and watching her have fun with her friends.  This little girl below is her best friend I have to pry them apart at pick up because they do not want to let go of each other!


"We're the three best friends anybody could have"
These three are always playing together!  The little girl on the left is actually the sister of the little boy Landon that Kayla loved to play with when she was in preschool.



Before snack time the kids got to paint an egg, the teacher cut them out later on but I love how Brooklyn was  the only one to add bunny ears to her egg and she didn't paint it all in like the others instead she made a zig zag design on her egg.


Time for a cookie and some fruit



While the kids were cleaning up and singing songs we went out to hide the eggs for the kids.  Once we were done they were all let loose to run around and find them.








It is so nice being able to enjoy these moments with Brooklyn at school, it seems not too long ago she was a baby on my hip while I was enjoying preschool parties with Kayla's class!
