definitely related to their parents--terrible at finding things!) The girls had a blast finding them, but had a hard time staying focused when some of the eggs started opening up in their baskets. We would have let them take their time and snack along the hunt, but it was about 10 degrees outside, so we were rushing them on their way.
Of course i couldn't' just fill their eggs with lame candy--so i bought things that they don't get to eat very often that they just LOVED--chocolate fishies, teddy grahams, fruit snacks, Lucky Charms--you know, the stuff all you fun moms give your kids regularly :) (i know, i know, my kids are completely deprived and have no chance at growing up to be normal citizens, but that's just the way the cookie--or in our case, the whole wheat cracker--crumbles:))
Here are the girls in their matching Easter jammies. This isn't a tradition in our family...yet. Maybe if Target has cute p.j.'s on clearance again this year it'll become one!
We spent Sunday going to church, getting peeps to the airport, and having a little Family Night about Easter and why it means so much to us. It was a perfect Easter weekend. It's always so fun to have family around. I don't know why we live so far from them!! When we were in Boston we felt like Denver was just around the corner from our families. But we're now realizing that both are a day's travel away, which is just too far!! Abby just cried and cried when we dropped everyone off at the airport. It made her feel better knowing that Grandpa would be back just two weeks later with Grandma... in fact, that kinda helped me fight back the tears, too!!
