For Easter this year we tried to keep things low key. The girls woke up to baskets with one toy and a bit of candy in the morning.
I'm pretty sure they were both done with their candy about an hour after they discovered their baskets. The amazing thing was, they never even complained of a tummy ache and they even managed to eat all their food that day!
Then after church, we went over to our friends, the Booths, to have Easter dinner and an Easter egg hunt! Our other friends, the Condies, were also there, but they were feeling a bit camera shy (especially Annalisa, since she was a couple days short of giving birth to TWINS!)
Everyone tried to chip something in for the meal. I made some cheesy potatoes and Kevin made these AWESOME deviled eggs! (I love my husband!)
After dinner we headed outside for the Easter egg hunt.
Lily thought it was the best thing that ever happened to her! If you look closely, you can see her humongous smile in the reflection on the car.
Brooklyn immediately got in the zone! She is a bit competitive and was quick to dive into the bushes for hidden eggs.
Lily mostly kept to the low bushes...
But Brooklyn made sure to leave no stone unturned... or tree branch for that matter!
Here are all our happy girls with their Easter egg loot. I just love seeing Brooklyn and Lily in their Easter muumuus. Thank you Grandma Uda!
Anyway, we had a wonderful Easter and were so grateful to be able to spend it with such fantastic people. It is a comforting thing to know, that even if we live far from family, we will always have our amazing ward friends to take us in and make us feel at home. Happy Easter everyone!
