The annual Easter egg hunt went on as planned on Saturday, despite plenty of snow attempting to thwart the hunters. This year there were NINE little hunters and sure to be at least two more (no, not an announcement from me) next year! The boy to girl ratio is 3:6 (baby in carseat is a boy), so those boys clearly need to catch up.
Nothing like slushy, dirty snow for the toddler to roam in and find her eggs.
My big kids are instructed to leave the obvious, easier ones for the little kids, so clearly their job is a little more difficult.
When one year olds don't do slushy snow walking, the parents get to do most of the work.
The kids enjoy the loot afterward. Each child gets to find ten eggs and each holds a $1 gold coin. Sweet deal, huh?
The eggs are so much fun to shake with those coins rattling around inside!
Afterward, we enjoyed visiting with family outside, while slurping on orange dreamsicles.
I made dessert for Easter dinner at Reed's parents house. I attempted to be springy and fun, while moderately attempting a Pinterest find. I went with a white cake, lemon pudding filling between the layers and vanilla buttercream frosting. Throw on some spring decorations and bunnies and we were set!
After Easter morning Mass, we attempted a family photo and considering the subjects I think it turned out pretty well. Maybe I can finally replace the one on my wall that is from Easter two years ago when Gianna was a baby. Good grief, poor Margaret.
Happy Easter! A blessed Easter season to you and yours.
