Easter 2015

Easter was really nice this year.  The boys visited the Easter bunny, colored and hunted eggs, we ate a lot of food, and had some fun with family.  I couldn't ask for more!

First, the boys visited the Easter bunny at Jim's work.  His new company is very family oriented and they welcome family in for fun activities like the Easter bunny!
The boys played a little Hokey Pokey

They had a Bunny Trail that you had to hop through.  It was super cute.

They had snacks and treats for all the littles.
Daddy shared a cookie with Harrison.  It was his first cookie- that's pretty big!

And then it was time for the bunny!
Sometimes the costumes are a bit shady (this includes Santa, too), so I always explain to the boys that we're just visiting one of the Easter Bunny's (or Santa's) helpers and not the real bunny/guy, and thank goodness I did because Jackson saw the bunny adjust his bunny head.  He saw a guy in the suit.  He told me in the car, "I'm very sure that was just the Easter bunny's helper because I saw it was just a guy in a suit, mom." Phew, crisis averted.
I'm kind of wondering if Jackson is ready to know the bunny isn't real.  Maybe next year...
Anyway, I'm a bit surprised to announce that NO ONE cried!
Austin didn't want to sit on his lap, but no one cried.  Win!

Then it was time to color eggs.  Woot woot!
Usually I just use good coloring, but Austin found a Star Wars Rebels egg coloring kit, and Star Wars Rebels is the boys' favorite show, so we Star Wars Rebeled up some eggs!

We dyed eggs a little late this year, but we got the boys to bed just in time for the bunny arrive.

Austin was so cute when he saw his basket the next morning!

There was lots of excitement!

I think Harrison likes this whole Easter bunny/basket thing-

We had a big family dinner and my little brother came into town.  The boys love when Uncle Brian comes to visit!

But this visit was a really good one because he brought his girlfriend, Whitney, with him.  Whitney is super sweet and we all loved that she joined us this year, but Whitney's visit was most special to Jackson and Harrison.  Jackson told me, "Mama, I'm going to take Uncle Brian's girlfriend so she'll be MY girlfriend!"  You better watch it, Brian, he's on the prowl...
And Harrison was pretty enamored with Whitney as well.  He almost wanted Whitney as much as he wanted me that day.

After dinner we played the boys' new favorite game, Frozen Uno.
And then it was time for The Hunt!

Harrison even had a few eggs to find.
He squeeled and laughed the whole time!

Happy Easter from the Nuffers!
