Easter 2013

Easter this year was really fun, because this year Miles and Vivienne could really get into the egg hunts and surprises.  We had 4 egg hunts (three with our play group friends and one at Grandma's house).  The kids really enjoyed these - they love their baskets and they love opening their eggs to discover what is inside.

At our playgroup's big egg hunt, the Easter bunny was there.  This was the first time that Miles and Vivienne had ever seen the Easter bunny (or really heard of him, for that matter, because we had never told them about him).  Vivienne was initially worried, but quickly began asking if we could go back and see the "kitty cat" again.

In love with the Easter "kitty"

Ready for the hunt

This is the closest thing we get to a decent family photo these days.  2 out of 3 ain't bad.

Yesterday, we went to Grandma's house to dye eggs and have another egg hunt.  Vivienne was really into the egg dying.  Miles was somewhat interested, but mostly eager to hop on the couch and spend some time with Lightning McQueen.

After the egg dying, we had our egg hunt in the backyard.  The kids really enjoyed being the only ones who were after all the eggs.  They were also really good about sharing them with one another.

Grandma really made them work for some of those eggs.

After the Great Hunt, we had a lovely lunch on Grandma's porch.  The kids even got an extra special treat from Grandma - Easter cupcakes.

Today was a fun day filled with Easter surprises.  The kids were delighted to see their Easter baskets with the fun things the Easter bunny gave them.  The big hit this year was the stomp rocket.

I spent a lot of time before Easter crocheting these adorable bunnies for the kids.  It was really fun for me to put my heart and hard work into making something for them by hand.

And our Easter baby was as beautiful as ever this morning in her pretty white dress.  Unfortunately, I didn't get photos of the big kids in their Easter best.

So, happy Easter, everybody!  Our God is alive.  What a glorious day it is!
