Easter Egg-stravaganza 2011

Whew! What an exciting week we had. Last week our family celebrated Easter. It was filled with family, friends, bunnies, and boiled eggs. The festivities started with me taking the kiddos to playgroup to be with friends. We had such a fun time. The Easter Bunny hopped in for a visit (Sophia was NOT interested in taking a picture with him, but she did admire him from a distance), and then there was a real LIVE bunny (Sophia loved to look at him and giggle!).

Embarrassing story alert! Sophia climbed to the top of the swing set and would not come down. I kept looking up to her and saying , "come on Sophia, time to slide or, lets go, or lets get a cookie." And nothing. If I left that house, she would have been happy as a clam living in this play set house! So I climbed up there to rescue her, and I decided it would be fun to go down the slide (for her, not fun for me). Well, guess whos hips are not as small as they once were (MINE). OMG, I was just thinking that they are gonna have to take a tub a butter to my hiney and lube me out (wow, there is a phrase that I never thought I would type on a blog). Anyways , I was concerned! After rocking side to side to loosen whatever was gripped to the sides I was able to slide down (mind you it was not a fast trip down!) Thank you to my friend Erin who got it on film.
Later that week, I hosted Easter-eggstravaganza at our home. It was so much fun: food, family, and egg dying.

We feasted on deviled eggs, cupcakes galore, 2 king ranch chicken casseroles, chips and salsa, a double layer cookies and cream cake, and a bunny cake. Definitely gained a pound or two at this meal. It was so yumm!!

The Easter bunny made a stop at our house that night!

That morning, we got ready and went to church. So sad, we have no family picture of us all together and dressed so nice (which is unfortunate, because we were all showered and looked so good!) During church, B-man peed through his Easter outfit and was then wearing some random outfit that the church had on back up!! PTL he was not naked for the rest of the day! Then it rained like cats and dogs for the rest of the day, so after church we were drenched anyways (photos not so much needed)... Then we met our family at Freds for lunch (no pictures, I am learning that it is hard to take pics anymore when you are trying to keep one child busy and fed, then feed yourself), and then went to our house to hunt eggs. The day was so fun!!

Hope that everyone had a wonderful Easter. It is such a wonderful time of celebration, knowing that we serve a risen Lord.

Love yal!
