Easter Fast Forward

In my last post, I shared a picture of Mason's first Easter in 2007. It seems like ages ago when I took that photo. Back then, he was a just a little cotton-tail wobbling down the bunny trail and too little for any egg-cellent hunting.

Fast forward 2 years later and that little cotton-tail has sprung into a little energizer bunny... NOW RACING DOWN THE BUNNY TRAIL. So much change in so little time. This year, our Easter celebration began the night before with eggs simply to dye for. I found some dye-filled Q-tips perfect for making silly little eggs. Mason named each one of our creations. The little girl egg was named Destiny after his cousin. The blue one had somewhat of an identity crisis. At first, it was Tia Annette. Although I thought it was perfect, somehow that name just didn't fit. So, he renamed it to plain o' Monster. And last but certainly not least, was the little yellow boy egg named after no one other than the ever so popular Christian. Of course, he couldn't
leave out his Ki Ki.

The following morning, we woke up to a beautiful Easter day. When all the sudden, we hear the doorbell ring. "Who could it be?" we thought. Mason raced to the door to find a special delivery from the Easter Bunny. It was a busy day for the Bunny; so, unfortunately, we didn't get to catch a glimpse of him.

After digging into some yummy treats, we put on our best duds and headed on over to church to celebrate the true meaning of Easter. I was so happy to have both my guys with me. My husband, Bradley, sat with us through one and a half hours of Spanish mass. Isn't he the greatest! The festivities continued at my sister Josette's house.

We LAUGHED! We ATE! Then we went on a thrill of a hunt! Cameras were flashing here and there trying to get a shot of the little peeps running wild. No time to stop for flashing cameras. The hunt was on!

Mason was able to hunt down 17 eggs, one of which had a special pink slip good for one yummy chocolate bunny.

Next on our list of things to do was a good o' fashion game of croquet. It brought back memories of my sisters and I when we were girlys. It was getting late and so we had to say goodbye, but I couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate Easter. It was a beautiful day all around!

Awww - sounds like a terrific Easter!

I can't wait until the egg dyeing is more fun than just freaking out every time my toddler tries to drink it! :)

Thanks for sharing - such fun pictures!
