Easter 2014

Here comes Lily cotton tail. Hopping on her bunny trail! On Saturday we attended Goppy's church for their Easter egg hunt. We came last year and the girls have talked about it all year since. They start with a brief chapel service then divide the kids up by age.
Then it is the count down and....Go! Get as many eggs and candy treats as you can!
They wasted no time tucking in to the treats. The eggs had little toys, tattoo's and rings. There were some candies and treats to find as well.
Lily got a haul. She is brave and there were not too many kids in her group.
Gemma didn't fair so well, but they shared and there was a rice crispy treat for each! Winner, winner.
The Easter bunny was here. He looked thrilled to be spending the day before Easter hanging out in the hot sun. Shouldn't he be checking the eggs and baskets for the mornings delivery?
They had cookie decorating, which we were pro's at.
The highlight was the bouncy slide.
Usually they are over run by bigger kids but it was mostly young school age or smaller so these two played over and over.
After Saturday's preview at church the girls were so eager for the real deal on Eastern morning. Lily woke first and got Gemma up. They searched the house over but found no baskets. They had to wake us to enlist some help. Tricky bunny this year. Gemma found her basket behind Daddy's cutter machine (shredder).
Lily found her's hanging on her hook by the garage. It was hidden behind Dad's jumper.
Gemma got the much anticipated Tinker bell movie.
Lily got a new math dice game. They each got some new books and a chocolate bunny of course.
Gemma busted out her Berenstain bears book right away. She is into those bears in a big way.
Once we inspected the loot and ate some breakfast we got all pretty for church.
Everyone did so well in church and it was a beautiful service. Then we headed to Uncle E and Auntie Rach's for some more fun. More egg hunt and more goodies!
Lily is a pro and I think Gemma and Ben could take some pointers.
Gemma is hesitant and wants you to come with her and hold her hand the whole time.
There were some tricky hiding eggs.
There were even a few baskets hidden in the garden! Sneaky Goppy bunny.
Everyone got so many great goodies and a ton of eggs.
Gemma was pretty pleased with her jelly beans.
Ben's technique was to stop after each egg. Open it, and eat it's contents. He, also is a fan of jelly beans.
Lots, and lots, of jelly beans.
It wasn't all candy and treats. We had a delicious lunch made by Rach and by the end of the day we managed to crawl home and watch the new Tinker Bell movie. After the movie they got a second wind and managed to goof off some more.
This was one fun weekend.
Time to get all scrubbed up, some people have school in the morning.
