Egg Hunts, Easter Bunnies, and Chocolate

Easter weekend at our house dawned cold and rainy. . . and it stayed that way! We wanted to keep the Easter egg hunt short and sweet so the kids didn't freeze! So my harp student's family was kind enough to hide some eggs in their front yard, and Kirsten had such a great time at her very first Easter egg hunt. Enjoy all the cute pictures!

Natalie wasn't quite so thrilled to be out in the windy, cold weather. I could not get a single smile out of her! Oh well. . . at least Kirsten had fun!

Oooh, yummy. . . plastic eggs!

The moral of the story: Easter egg hunts are always fun, even when it's cold! Okay, maybe not in the rain. Thank goodness it wasn't raining!

The next morning, we were visited by the Easter Bunny, who hid the two cutest baskets EVER on Kirsten's bed.

As soon as Kirsten saw the basket, she made a beeline straight for the CHOCOLATE. She had me open her chocolate bunny and she dug right in. Yes, further proof that she is my child.

I guess the Easter Bunny shouldn't have bothered with putting all that other cute stuff in her basket, since all she really cared about was the candy!

Natalie was having a much more photogenic day. Adorable little bunny!

Kirsten's looking at Natalie like, "You better not even think about stealing my chocolate!"

Natalie thoroughly enjoyed throwing everything out of her basket onto the floor.

Here's my pile of Easter deliciousness. . . a box of See's Nuts and Chews chocolates and a See's bunny! Our Easter Bunny's got good taste!

We spent a wonderful Easter day watching General Conference and enjoying a delicious dinner with some really great friends. Everyone had a great time, and the kids all took turns climbing all over Chance.

I love this shot of my gorgeous Easter flowers!
In the aftermath of Easter, I decided the Easter Bunny created a monster. The next day, Kirsten threw a big fit in the morning, wailing that she "needed chocolate!" And I couldn't get her to stop sneaking candy out of her Easter basket, despite my best efforts to hide it from her. Sigh. At least Easter only comes once a year. This was the first holiday that she really cared this much about candy.
Despite the candy monster, it was a beautiful Easter!


  1. Those are GORGEOUS photos! Those girlies are squishably delicious!!! :)

  2. CUTE pictures! Kirsten looks so happy collecting her Easter eggs, and I love Natalie's bunny ears! Adorable!

  3. I am TOTALLY impressed with your egg hunt pictures. I NEVER get a decent picture from Easter - it all happens too quick and they're turning the wrong way, or the baby is crying, etc. You are very talented!!! (and you have photogenic children, ha)

  4. i love all of the cute pictures!!!
