Easter Dresses and Egg Hunts

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!! Ours was filled with three days of egg hunts, two days of church, and sugar-fed celebration!

On Friday, the kids, "Farmer", Baby Wesley, and myself attended the Easter Eggstravaganza at the Centerville Community Center near my house. WOW was it crowded! Harbin "hunted" three broken eggs with no candy, and waited in line FOREVER to bounce in the bounce house. The kids did enjoy the farm animals like the goats and bunnies. I was also able to catch a few good pics of the kids dressed up for the hunt.

Saturday was much more laid back. Daddy came home that morning and we joined some close friends of ours for lunch and an egg hunt at their house. Harbin and Sam didn't come up short on eggs this time and Catherine even snagged a few for herself. Later that evening the kids got to meet the Easter Bunny at Farmer's neighborhood Egg Hunt. You can see how enthused the were...
Our church had three services this year, one Sat. night and two Sun. morning. The choir sang in all of them, so I was busy a lot throughout the weekend. Sunday morning was rushed since we woke up 5 minutes AFTER I was supposed to be at the church (darned alarm clocks)!!! Needless to say, I was able to get ready, get a few shots of the kids opening their Easter Baskets and make it to the church by 9. Scott did a great job getting the kids all dolled up in their Easter best and joining me at church 20 minutes later.

Sunday afternoon we had a great lunch at my mom's house followed by more Easter surprises and, of course, EGG HUNTS!! Two of the guys from Scott's unit- Mike and Mike- joined us for the egg hunt. By this point in the weekend, Catherine had the hang of the hunt. She would hold Scott's hand, walk to the next egg, promptly let go, squat down, pick up the egg, put it in the basket and return to finger holding position, ready to walk to the next egg!!

Enjoy the pics. I should have them all up on Shutterfly soon with a link on the right.

The mom.

How cute. Love the outfits! Did you cut Catherine's hair? It looks like maybe you did in the front, but then then there's one pictures where it still looks long in the back. At any rate, it looks cute.
