happy easter eggs!

We just stepped in the door after a really fun weekend visiting my parents! We had an epic parenting fail on the trip: Shortly after we arrived, we realized we'd forgotten G's little suitcase, including his cute bow tie and boat shoes! Thankfully there was still time to grab him some new duds before the stores closed on Saturday. It was really no big deal in the scheme of things. We still had an awesome time celebrating Jesus' victory over death with our family! Here are a few of our pics from the day--oh and G and I dyed these eggs together! It's so fun that he's beginning to get interested in fun holiday traditions!
Sunday morning Graham woke up saying "Happy Easter Eggs!" How cute is that!? After church + a giant family meal, we enjoyed one of the best warm-sunshiny afternoons so far this year, perfect for bringing the party outdoors with an egg hunt + lawn games. Graham did a great job tracking down all of the eggs in the yard, once grandma kicked in her handy egg-GPS services.
I used some scrap fabric to make mini Easter baskets for all of the cousins. I added felt handles and rick-rack, then stuffed them with pretty pastel rock candy and taffy!

Ah the egg photos are so beautiful!!! I can't handle it. There's nothing I love more than pretty dyed eggs. I'm doing the rainbow thing next year.
