Easter 2009

Group picture (oops minus Cole)

Happy Easter! What a wonderful weekend! The weather was beautiful! MC has had Gigi, Aunt Heather, Kerigan, and "Kenny" here to play with her. The Easter egg hunt was so much fun despite a friendly visit NOT from the Easter bunny but from a neighborhood snake! Ha! I bet no one will ever come to an egg hunt here again! Next time we will be sure to check the fresh pinestraw before chocolate-covered fingers are picking through it! I am so sorry and embarrassed about our lovely rodents around here! Luckily he went on his way to the pond without any further disruptances. We had a total of 15 kids come to the egg hunt and they had a blast! Mati Claire was the only one who threw a tantrum (but was also in dire need of a nap). We hunted eggs, ate carrot cake and candy, wore bunny ears, and caught ducks in the hot tub! Thank you Mom and Heather for helping to put the party together. They did a great job decorating. My nieces indirectly reminded me that I have to live up to the title of Easter bunny next year. I got lucky again this year because MC doesn't understand it yet. Boiling and dyeing eggs??? Huh? Whoa. I better start now.

Yummy carrot cake in the shape of a carrot!

Looks like so much fun. I hate that our church Easter Egg Hunt was scheduled at the same time.
