The longest Easter

This year, our Easter celebrations stretched out over 2 weeks! On the 15th, Seth's preschool had an Easter party before they were off for Spring Break. There was an egg hunt, Easter crafts, and of course, treats too.

Our friend Addie had her birthday party the Friday before Easter at the park, and there was an egg hung, bunny hop races, a craft and more treats. Yay for parties!

At our house, we like to do the Easter basket/bunny stuff and egg hunt on Saturday, and luckily, it was a beautiful day. Matt hid some eggs in the front yard (since there are more places to hide eggs than in the back!), and they went to town and each made a haul.

They always get jammies on Christmas Eve, so I put summer jammies in their Easter baskets. Aren't they cute all squeaky clean?

At church, the ward Easter party was a brunch on the Saturday after Easter since that's when it's our turn to have use of the building. The rain managed to hold off long enough for a fun egg hunt after filling up on delicious breakfast goodies.

And finally, here are the little cuties dressed up in their Easter duds. I made the dress for Lydia last year knowing it would be too big and that it would be just about right for an Easter dress. I finally learned how to tie a bow tie, so this is the first of many non clip-on ties I made one for Seth. Lydia's got the "cheeeese!" down pretty well, don't you think?

Hope you had a happy Easter too!
