As usual I have taken far too many pictures so I will have to split up our Easter into a few different posts. Prepare for cuteness over load!
The Easter Bunny tried to down grade the amount of toys and candy this year, but couldn't. Maybe next year we can stay inside the basket (which you can barely see here)
Johnny was very excited and a little surprised. Each and every item he pulled out of the basket was the most exciting item he ever saw.
It also took Lily a few minutes to realize what was going on and what was for her.
The Easter Bunny got Hungry Hungry Hippos just because, but it turns out that he had wanted it forever!It was after Johnny had pulled out a few of his toys that Lily dived into her stuff.
And first was this ceramic cupcake topped with a bunny.
At this point it was all just a jumble of the kids playing with their new toys. I was very proud and happy to watch them enjoy Easter. Johnny took out one toy at a time, showed his excitement, put it gently to the side and moved on.
Mommy and her camera are always interesting and must be investigated.
He was very interested in what Lily got and helping Lily look through her basket and keeping her interested. He is a great big brother!
They shared a lot of what the other got. Lily got four containers of bubbles each one smelled like a different fruit.
Three foot long gummie snake! He got TWO!! The day after Easter he ate entire one so quick we had to serach the house to make sure he didn't just leave it some where.
This was the moment that he realized there was a lot of candy in the basket. This bag of bunny shaped mash-mellows was the greatest thing EVER!
Then he started to bring Mommy all of his and Lily's candy, for "later."
Lily's "big" part to her Easter basket where these cupcake matching shapes. The top and bottom are a certain shape, like star, moon, circle...
She thought they where very yummy, Silly Lily those aren't real cupcakes!
I swear that I did not stage this picture! Lily got a bunny bowling set, here she was sucking on some bunny ears and holding the bowling balls....she is just a little strange and a LOT cute!
Peeps, that was the one candy he chose to eat, and he scarfed it down.
YUM Animal crackers help her not to realize that there are fuzzy ears on her head.
The morning felt like it was over quick, but both beautiful children loved their baskets and Mommy and Daddy beamed while watching them and sharing these wonderful moments of memories made.
And then we got dressed for church....many many more pictures to come!
