The girls were so excited for Easter this year and couldn't wait to have their Easter egg hunt. However, with 9:00 a.m. church and girls who sleep in late, there was no way we would be able to find what the Easter Bunny left us until after church. To keep them from going downstairs while we got ready for church, Aaron and I gave them each a little gift that they had to find hidden in their rooms. We got Chloe a new jewelry box and Abby got a new sleeping bag. Abby spent the morning dragging her sleeping bag around telling us how much she loved it and Chloe promptly started putting her jewelry away. Needless to say it kept them occupied for the morning. We had a wonderful time at church and were reminded of the true reason for Easter.
As soon as we walked in the door from church, the girls were off! They got tons of candy and little toys and by the end of the hunt, their baskets were overflowing!
After we sorted through the goodies, we headed out to my mom's house for another egg hunt -- cause we needed more candy :) -- and dinner. It was a beautiful Easter Sunday and we couldn't have asked for better egg hunting weather. Also, you might notice the adorable skirts that the girls were wearing...yep, I can officially say that I 100% made them. Not bad for my first try.
After dinner, we headed out to the Searle's for dessert and by the end of the night, the girls were on a huge sugar high. Oh well, that's one of the best things about holidays that involve candy. :)
