Easter 2014

For the first time we decided to host Easter at our house for our parents. It was nice being able to stay at home where Hunter had all of his toys to play with and we didn't have to rush out the door or deal with traveling to someone else's house. Because our neighbors who have young kids were also going to be home we planned a little egg hunt for Hunter and his two friends Zachary and Jordynn.

We couldn't have asked for better weather and lunch was delicious. We had ham, asparagus, homemade mac n' cheese (from my mom), pineapple souffle (from my MIL), salad and rolls and chocolate pecan pie and sweet potato pie (from our neighbor) for dessert. It was fabulous. 

On Saturday night we dyed some eggs. Hunter lost interest pretty quick once we had to sit and wait for the dye to take affect. 

After he went to bed the bunny dropped of his basket which was full of some small trucks, fun socks, books and a few edible treats. 

Hunter seemed to think Easter was a mix of Halloween and Christmas with the presents and candy left for him. Needless to say he was thrilled. 

Me and my love. 

Hunter had just woken up for a nap and wasn't in a smiling mood at that moment.

The egg hunt went really well, we had over 100 stuffed eggs for 3 kids. At first Hunter wanted to open each egg and eat the candy, once we convinced him to go find the eggs first he was off and running. He even broke a sweat and filled 2 baskets!

Once the hunt was over the kids enjoyed some cookies and pretzels together. They really play nicely with each other and it's pretty adorable to watch. 

We had such a wonderful Easter with our family and friends, we were definitely very blessed this year.

Sounds like a really great Easter! It's so much more fun when the kids are finally able to enjoy it and know what's going on. Your dinner sounded amazing as well.

Looks like a great Easter! Isn't staying home for the holidays the best? So fun to have kids Hunter's age close by for the egg hunt!
