We are still figuring out our computer situation at the new house – meaning: I have spent a lot less time on the computer lately and more time doing things like clearing out our two tool sheds (which are still packed with the previous owner’s stuff). More on that later…it’s been QUITE the project! 😉
Anyhoo – I just got the chance to upload pictures from my “real” camera – all the pictures I’ve been posting lately have been cellphone pics! Here is a little taste of our Annual Easter Egg Hunt! The girls were so excited and looked forward to it for weeks beforehand. (No pressure for me…ha!)
Mr. M always has to work on Sundays because of his schedule on Dancing With The Stars – so I did the egg hunt with the girls myself! I packed the eggs the night before with lots of chocolate and a little money (when I ran out of chocolate). Interestingly enough, all the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups were missing from the eggs this year. Wonder how that happened? Haha.
Mr. M hid most of the eggs before he left for work in the morning. We had about 60 eggs for three girls, so they had plenty of opportunities to hunt!
The girls decided to collect all the eggs and then take them in their room and split them up evenly – which I wholeheartedly agreed with! It made the egg hunt much more cooperative and took any competition out of it. They were helping each other find eggs, which was great!
I hid their chocolate bunnies in the far corner of the backyard in the branches of our avocado tree. I figured that was the coolest place possible, since I didn’t want those bunnies melting! They each got one chocolate bunny and they were SO excited when they found them! One thing is for sure – my girls take after me in their love of chocolate. 😉
When all the eggs were found, they came inside and divided them equally. They had so much fun discovering the treasure inside each egg.
Paprika loves to read the Bible – she loves all the stories (Old and New Testament) and probably knows more about the Bible than most adults! I’m not kidding – she studies it on her own and always asks questions that I have to look up for her! So, she told the littler girls the story of Easter from the Bible to them while they ate their chocolates.
And eat chocolate they did! Let’s just say those white dresses did not stay white for long! Haha.
We had a great egg hunt, and a great Easter! I think the girls had enough chocolate to last them until next Easter or…at least until Halloween! Ha!
