easter 2017

We headed over to Eastern Washington to spend Easter with my family, which has kind of become a yearly tradition. I was enjoying myself so much that I barely took my camera out! 

One of god-only-knows how many pieces of candy Kressa consumed. Honestly, she didn't eat any Easter dinner. I'm pretty sure all she ate all day was candy. And can I say how jealous I am of her eyelashes?!

Decker thought he had found the golden egg because he found a yellow egg. Hence, the big smile.

Of course there was lots of candy in the eggs, but the kids also were able to turn in paper coupons for money and slime...yes, lots of slime.

If you look closely, you will see chocolate on her teeth.

My niece, Reegan, had a dance performance that evening, so Kressa joined her while she was doing her makeup.

The night before Easter, I was doing my motherly duties by putting out the kids' Easter baskets. I had put them both to bed and told them I'd be in in a few minutes. Of course, Decker gets out of bed and comes downstairs after I had put their stuff out. Luckily, I don't think he saw anything. But the next morning, he told me he knew that I was putting out Easter stuff the night before. Of course, I did as good of job as denying as I could. But later, he said he had heard the Easter bunny overnight and that the bunny had woken him up. Maybe he will still believe for a few more years?

Anyways, he's been dying for a hockey set and lucky him, the Easter bunny granted his wish.
