Eloise & Preston kicked off the Easter holiday by indulging Mommy with a themed photo shoot. These 2 were a blast and loved the big carrots we used for props. These 2 bunnies are too cute and were worth all the sweating and crazy antics to get some cute photos.
Operation: Holiday Sweat Shop
I bought plain wooden bunny frames for Eloise to paint for all the grandparents' Easter gift. With each frame, she'd ask who it was for and pick her colors accordingly.
Easter Fun at school
Thanks to some of my fellow moms at daycare, I got the full report on Eloise & the Easter fun at school. When they were outside Eloise said to one mom, "I wonder who's in that bunny costume." She said, "Eloise, it's the Easter Bunny. That's not a costume!" Eloise responded with, "No...I think I saw some skin." Another mom told me that she didn't want her picture taken with the bunny and said, "maybe next year when I'm older."
She had razor sharp focus when it came to the egg hunt. She came home with a basket of eggs.
I absolutely love putting together Easter baskets! It is so much fun finding stuff the weeks leading up to the big day. Eloise was so thrilled to see what the Easter Bunny brought her.
Preston's basket is a little lame this year given that he is only 10.5 months. However, that little man loves his Gerber snacks and was happy to wear his little baby aviators.
We hosted Easter Brunch with Grandma Carrot, Papa Kevin & company. We had a wonderful spread with some special treats like Auntie Lo's homemade Maple Bacon Breakfast Sausage (aka P2) and homemade Apricot Coffee Cake by Grandma Carrot.
Best joke of the day goes to Brad as he exclaimed, "He has risen!" in response to Preston standing on his own for the 1st time. Extra credit goes to Grandma for capturing that moment.
We wrapped up the holiday with Easter dinner at Grandma Sandy & Papa Mike's. The 4 big girls all participated in Papa Mike's egg hunt and according to Alex they are pretty much rich now with all the money inside their eggs. Just wait until next year when Preston & Brooke join the Egg Hunt. The Easter Bunny may need to consider some "refinancing" and change from quarters to pennies with all these kids!
