Easter Sunday

We started our Easter Sunday VERY early this year.  Hope stumbled into my bedroom at 5am to let us know that the Easter bunny had come.  I told you, she really likes holidays.  ;)

I'm going to warn you, there are A LOT of photos ahead.  I tried to cut it back as much as possible, but it was sunny and lovely and we took a ton of pictures!  Plus, Poe is big enough this year to really have some fun with all of it. 

We cram in our Easter baskets and first egg hunt (with the real eggs) before church on Easter and then come home after for lunch with Johnny's family and more egg hunting.  Last week had been so rainy and cold, we were so thankful to get such a warm, lovely day.  Poesy was in extra wild mode and figured out how to jump (getting some air, mind you) AND somersault.  It was pretty entertaining.  She didn't even have any candy or sugar.  It was just pure excitement.

Speaking of candy, did anyone else have major meltdowns at the end of the day?  Holy cow.  It happened in a big way over here!

  6. Your family is too cute. I can't wait to have my two girlies playing around together. And yes- our Easter meltdown brewed until Monday and then overflowed for most of the day. I'm still trying to decide if it's better to let Lilly eat all the candy she wants in one day and just be cranky that day or to let the house be filled with candy for days to come possible inducing more meltdowns... oh, parenthood.

  7. Love the pictures!!! Poe is getting prettier and prettier just like her big sister each day :-)

    I think I had a candy meltdown at the end of the day yesterday from eating candy....no more chocolate...till next easter ;-)

  8. Happy belated Easter to you & yours... so enjoyed all your images. And yes, we had some tired out monkeys over here too... or cranky crabs might be a better description. A full day + mostly sugar consumed all day = the perfect storm. lol.
