Easter 2009

We had a really fun Easter this year, so much fun that I am going to do two posts. We took a lot of pictures. :)
Megan came over on Saturday and spent the night - of course the girls loved that. They love their Aunt Megan. We started the day off with finding eggs and baskets. Jake informed me that the Easter Bunny doesn't know how to hide eggs very well, because Sierra found them way to easily. Oh well. The girls got little buckets (baskets), little shovels and gardening gloves for Easter - I figured since we have an unlimited supply of dirt - this would be a good idea. Luckily the weather was beautiful so the girls could try out their new stuff. After spending the morning playing outside in the dirt, flying the ever-so-cool inflatable kites and eating egg shaped pink pancakes for breakfast we went fishing - where Sierra caught her first fish!

If you look closely, Maddie has her mouth full of candy. She loves candy - I don't know where she gets that. This is also a good picture of our new coffee table Jake made for our new home. He decided to paint it instead of stain it. He went for an antique look with a black undertone. The color turned out to be more of a rose red- a little pinkish, but it still turned out very nice. I like the new look. Adds a little color to a very brown space.

The girls enjoying their new toys. Surprisingly, they didn't even get their dresses dirty and they wore them all day - even fishing. :)

Sierra flying her kite all by herself. The Easter Bunny gave the girls inflatable kites. They actually worked very well. Great for little kids.

Cuties! And good job Sierra for catching your first fish and showing your papa how it's done ;)

Fun Easter! Buckets and gloves and trowels (right? I'm not a gardener) were such a good idea. The girls look cute in their Easter dresses--I love that Sierra went fishing in her dress! I'm glad the ham was good. That really is the best glaze--you can't give me all the credit though, it's modified from my mom's recipe.

Looks like a fun Easter! I bet kids make holidays so much more fun! Poor Justin and I, haven't been visited by the Easter bunny for years! haha!
