J’s parents and younger sister, whom we call Aunt M, came to visit for Easter this year. We did the usual egg dying on Saturday and hunting on Sunday. The biggest news was we saw the “Easter Bunny” hopping across the street and into the brush on our way to church!
Some of our artwork-we used rubber bands this year for a tie-dyed look as well as the old white crayon trick:
The Easter Bunny enjoys hiding the eggs far and wide on our property. I always tell myself we should count them to be sure we got them all, but I never actually do it. We have since found a couple chewed up by Mr. B’s tractor. Oh well! However, next year I will buy new baskets that can genuinely be carried by the handle. These always get too heavy and toss everything out onto the ground!
Belle sporting the new bag she got in her Easter basket. Sadly, it covers up the adorableness of her dress. It is so unique, just like my Belle!
Eventually the kids get tired of holding their overweighted baskets, so they give them to a trusted adult and run back and forth.
I love this picture of Little Lamb. The rush to grab and get to the basket is so cute! We shopped for her dress when my parents visited in March. Despite my mom’s efforts to talk her in to a beautiful smocked dress, LL was set on this dress. LL is not easily talked in to things-like Belle is-just for the sake of pleasing Grandma. In the end, LL was happy and adorable, just as it should be!
Once the hunt was finished, we got the kids to stop just long enough for a quick picture. Little Bear’s eggs are all hidden under his grass. He tossed it out somewhere along the way, but Mimi helped me save it. 🙂
