Easter played double duty today! We had a family gathering for two birthdays and Easter. It was a busy day but a great one.
The day began with four excited kids in our bedroom persuading us to wake up. You would have thought it was Christmas morning! We raced downstairs to find four Easter baskets filled with candy, socks, a new pair of shorts and the Easter must haves...peeps and a chocolate bunny!
Then, it was on to the egg hunt. We had a lot of fun hunting for eggs. With a new house, there were all sorts of new places for eggs to be hiding. We do try to tame some of the chaos of the hunt with a couple rules. Each kiddo has their own egg to find...Spiderman, yellow Spongebob, Hello Kitty, and blue Spongebob. There are 3 special eggs to find and then the rest are a free for all...until you find 12. After you load your basket with a dozen, you can move on to opening them.
Finally, we moved out to the garage where the real deal gifts were hidden. For Matthew, the oldest, it was a basketball hoop! Emma, the oldest girl, became the owner of a shiny new bike! Maddie and Avery, the two youngest, found brand new (big girl) scooters!

Today was definitely a day of family fun! Happy Easter from my family to yours.
