The Easter Bunny Has Arrived!

I'm pretty sure Easter is the only day of the year where it's perfectly acceptable to have candy before breakfast. Even on Halloween, the king of candy day, you don't go trick or treating until the end of the day. Chocolate bunnies, easter eggs and jelly beans were a big hit here, and we're still wading through piles of them. There were more cookies, cakes and candy at my mom's celebration for Easter dinner.

It was a gorgeous day and I'm pretty sure Tom was the only person in the county wearing long sleeves that day. I couldn't convince him otherwise. They ended up being extremely practical because he could use the sleeves as built in kleenex on the go for his runny nose. Who's the fool now, Mom?!

We almost managed to get a family photo. I convinced Tom and Abby to sit on this planter ledge and as soon as Tom saw the camera, he bolted. He's one fast preschooler!

Abby does this new thing when you point a camera at her. She doesn't run or turn her head, but she looks off in another direction, pretending not to see you or hear you. This is the best we got of mama and baby girl on Sunday.

More pics from Easter Sunday can be found here.

It looks like you guys had a nice Easter! We can relate to the long sleeves on Easter this year - we had on long sleeves, winter coats, and snow on the ground!! By the way I love the picture of Abby in her pink dress, with the pink flowers behind her, holding her Easter basket!

Yeah for lots of candy! The easter egg hunt looks like fun. The kids are adorable!

Think the adults loved the Easter egg hunt just as much as Tom,Abby and JB. Couldn't have ordered a more perfect day.
