Easter Celebrations

We packed in a lot of Easter fun last week starting with Maggie's egg hunt at preschool. Jacob and I arrived early to help hide the eggs.

Maggie started off a little rough during the hunt with being too shy to pick up any eggs, but her sweet friends quickly came to her aid and helped find some for her. She really has the best little class this year!

I am not ready to accept that Maggie and Lily will not be together next year. Maggie just adores Lily, and they have been friends since only a few months old when I met Kristin at the park with the boys.

And because Easter is not complete without eating candy from the eggs and then having a party with treats, the Butterfly Class enjoyed a yummy spread in the classroom.

These little bunnies were sugared up and ready for more Easter celebrations!

Saturday morning we ventured to our church Easter egg hunt held at a member's home. It was beautiful and so well organized. Luckily all three of our babies hunted in different age groups, so everyone got their moment to shine. 

Jacob caught on very quickly and filled his basket with encouragement from Tuttle.

Maggie ran into a school friend right before the start of her hunt.

I did not snap any photos of Tuttle's turn because he was off and running. I think everyone had a blast!

The Easter Bunny hopped by Saturday night, so the kids were up early to check out their loot. 

I have finally figured out that it takes exactly two hours to get our family of five showered and dressed for church, including breakfast. We arrived at church early to take photos.

After a beautiful service we continued the day with lunch at Gram and Grump's house. It was a huge crowd with almost 30 people. I brought an egg nest dessert to share, but the candy from a little egg hunt in the backyard filled up all the kids for the most part. I pretty much let Maggie and Tuttle eat all the sweets that they want to. How do you really limit the sugar intake on a holiday? :)

Easter 2017 was full of precious memories. He is Risen, Indeed!
