we had a very nice easter. i found this really cute pattern online for easter baskets for the kids and thankfully got them done in time. we won't mention that the first time i found it was last year and it's taken me until this year to get it done but hey, there done right? not the greatest picture but it gives you an idea.

we decorated eggs the night before and it was hilarious to say the least. (mis has picked up the word hilarious by the way and says it to us all the time. as in "mom, you are hilarious!" it never ceases to make me smile right then) mia had fun picking out her colors and waiting patiently for them to turn just the right color. asher however was very into the yellow color. he had tons of fun spinning his egg in the bowl and splashing his hands and the egg in the water. he was rather upset when it was time to stop and go to bed. all in all a successful activity.
mia came out of her room and stopped at the top of the stairs. "mom, there's an easter bunny on my fireplace. i want it!" she was promptly told that she had to wait for asher to walk up to which her response was "what??"" she handled it well though and the kids had fun looking at all the fun things the easter bunny brought them.

ring pops in the shape of bunnies were a BIG hit!

gotta have fun bunny ears!

mia had a good time finding the eggs the easter bunny hid around the living room too. she was rather disappointed when she had found them all. maybe the easter bunny will hide more next year.

we headed to church and then after naps went over to grandma and grandpa's for a little more celebrating. we are so blessed to have family so close and to get to see them so often. mia always has such fun with her cousin liam. the two of them had a blast decorating bunny cupcakes. surprisingly enough, most of the decorations acutally ended up on the cupcakes too! we were all very impressed. the trick was also to get them to wait until after dinner to eat them. thankfully we can still work a little of the "out of sight, out of mind" magic (especially when they're together and there are oodles of uncles to play with!

the kids, the cupcakes and uncle dave

hope you all had a wonderful easter celebrating the love and hope we can all find in Jesus! happy easter!
