Happy Easter!!!

Those Easter baskets were a hit! They were taken out for a test drive on Saturday for our HOA's Egg Hunt. Unfortunately, I forgot to bring our camera. Instead, here is a picture of the eggs the kids colored.

On Sunday morning after mass, we hid 70+ eggs inside the house (limiting it to 2 adjoining rooms). They had a blast looking for the eggs. Last year, I put coins in the green eggs. It just so happened that Little Man ended up finding the majority of the green eggs. So this year, Pumpkin Girl kept asking what color were the money eggs. To make it fun, we put money in all the different colors. Can you tell from Pumpkin Girl's overflowing basket that she just zoomed through the rooms and picked as many as she could.

Here's a better picture of the baskets:
