Our Easter festivites began Saturday morning when the boys woke up to find their cute baskets filled with jelly beans, the traditional chocolate bunnies, and new Peter Pan and Happy Feet dvds from Grammuh and Grampuh. The spoiling continued later that morning with an egg hunt in our back yard. They looked so darling in their new outfits (also from Grammuh-- she's too nice!) that I couldn't help but take a bunch of still photos and a video! This is the first year that Gordon could really participate (last year he just stuffed his mouth with jelly beans, but the egg hunt idea was a bit beyond him) and we loved watching him trot around the yard after his big brother. Don't they just look like little Easter eggs?
In addition to the candy from us, we also got a big bag of Jelly Bellys from my Grandma Sue (so sweet!) and my parents brought candy and prize-filled baskets when they came for dinner on Sunday (more to come on the rest of our weekend). Now we're "enjoying" the after-effects of way too much candy. Thomas has been very clever in finding my different candy hiding spots. Gordon is much less subtle: he simply asks, about every 30 seconds, for a "treat".
