After the fiasco that was the egg hunt the day before, we were ready for a more chill Easter morning. We decided that the Easter Bunny wouldn't vist our house during the night, but rather the next morning when Hayley wasn't looking. This turned out to be a great plan, and one that allowed us to sleep in, and for the kids to be dressed while looking for eggs and baskets, instead of in their jammies.
Hayley thought it was great to be the only one searching for eggs, since Jackson could have cared less. He was pretty mad at Jeremy for forcing him to look for an egg. But you know, sometimes there's nothing quite like some forced fun.
Hayley was even more excited when she realized that some of the eggs had coins in them instead of candy. (This was entirely intentional, since the girl had FIVE cavities last month when we went to the dentist.) Jeremy said to that, "Wow, I wish the Easter Bunny would have come to my room and left me some money eggs." To which I replied, "Really? You want a whole dollar and 57 cents in change? Because that can be arranged." :)
Later in the day, we headed to Grandma Heidi's and Grandpa Bob's, where both kids got another basket of loot from Grandma, and were able to search for more eggs out in the yard.
And good news! No one got knocked over, Mom got some pictures, and everyone was happy.
Hayley was especially happy that Jackson liked the plastic eggs better than anything elst that was inside of them.
And this mom realized that really what do my kids need another egg hunt for anyway?
Hope everyone had a Happy Easter!
