trial run

after some discussion, we decided it might be time for a easter "trial run". so on one of our many recent rainy afternoons...we all took turns hiding and finding eggs around the house.

bauer says "range". what a smart boy!!

and because i am a HUGE softy at holidays...we also tested out some chocolate easter bunnies...

they were a hit!
i bet you'll never guess who ate ALL of theirs?!

don't worry the boys found a way to work off those extra calories, while the girls...

started a new tradition. this year we painted wooden eggs. i thought this was a much better ideas for several reasons. cheaper, sustainable, don't have to eat all those eggs, no breaking, more age appropriate, and just more fun!

love the idea on painting a wooden egg each year! seems like a nice way to make a keepsake for each other. :-)
