Easter Eggstravaganza

To start off our Easter Festivities a few girls in the ward put together an Easter Eggstravaganza. Everyone pitched in and brought eggs to hide and food to eat. The kids had a great time running around and playing on Jeni's new swing set (thanks for having us Jeni!). This was Kaiden's first egg hunt for the year and as pumped up as he was to look for eggs he could almost care less after he found the first one. He just wanted to stop and eat what was inside and then move on to look for another! But if I let him do that then there would be upset at the end b/c he only had one egg. So I had to keep nudging him along to find a few more. Kalli liked carrying her basket around and picked up really quick what she was suppose to do with it. She's such a copy cat and as soon as she saw Kaiden pick up an egg she wanted to do the same. The only problem is she couldn't figure out how to keep it in her basket. She'd walk around and tip the basket up side down and would pick up her same egg over and over, it was really cute. Jeni made some cookies for the kids to decorate. They loved adding their own icing and grabbing handfuls of sprinkles to top it off. Kalli just enjoyed eating all of their crumbs off the ground! That girl has a sweet tooth like her mama!
I'm done for the night but more Easter pics to follow.

Kalli looks like such the BIG GIRL !! Both your babies are growing up... :(

Well, while your kids were playing in the pool, it was probably snowing here! Sounds like both of your kids have a sweet tooth, especially if Kaiden was willing to sacrifice finding other eggs just to eat the candy inside the first =) By the way, my parents used mice poison and had one die in their wall too. I guess either way I would have been throwing up!

I missed out on an easter egg hunt this year! I can't believe how grown up Kalli looks! I wish I could meet her in person, I'm sure she is picking up your personality!

The part about Kalli picking up the same eggs over and over made me laugh out loud. I was inside feeding Eli during the egg hunt so I didn't get to see that.

The kiddies certainly look like they had a wonderful time!
The bit about Kalli picking up the same egg over and over made me Kaiden did exactly the same thing this year!
She is looking so grown up, and I think she is looking so much like Kaiden in these photo's.
Gorgeous gorgeous :-)
