Easter Sunday

We had a great Easter this year. Ben woke up early, ready to see what the Easter bunny brought.

Like the cruel mother that I am, I made him put on these bunny ears for a photo. He was already in the middle of finding the eggs the Easter bunny had left for him (filled with jelly beans--his current favorite), so his cooperation came begrudgingly but it was much appreciated!

Then we checked out the baskets!

Livvie was thrilled to be in the midst of things, but had no clue what was going on. She didn't care much about anything in her basket. She just wanted to play with the plastic eggs and faux grass.

Next, it was time for breakfast. Mike made Ben and me biscuits and gravy. It's a favorite, and we rarely have it anymore, so it was a treat. Mike and Liv had scrambled eggs. Ben brought his new friends from the Easter bunny to breakfast. Man, does this kid love stuffed animals. So cute!

We had a lazy morning and played a bit, and then headed to Nana and Papa's for Easter dinner. We were so lucky to get a beautiful day, so we spent the majority of our time outside.

Liv crawled around on the deck and got her cute little dress and shoes filthy, but she had a heck of a time doing it. She was such a trooper all day. She took shorter than usual naps, and was up playing and hanging out from 2-7:30. I was really impressed with how good she was for such a long stretch on little sleep. She never cried or fussed. She was just happy to play, be held, and be at the party. This ones a party girl!

After dinner, the kids opened up their baskets from Nana and Papa. Can you tell that Liv was really into it; that's her climbing over Mike. ;-)

Happy Easter!
