Easter

Okay. My turn to post about Easter. We did the Easter Bunny basket thing on Saturday morning.

I got her hair out of her face for breakfast (thus the crazy loop), ate, and then afterward we had her try on the swimsuit the Easter Bunny brought her. She felt like hot stuff. This is my favorite diva pose to date. "Mmm hmm. That's what I thought."

We colored eggs on Saturday night.


Headed to church on Sunday...

And we had an Easter egg hunt with friends that evening.
Now I know why we always do the real eggs instead of plastic eggs with candy in them. I've never seen the kid on a sugar rush like I did when we got home that night. Jake and I both made ourselves sick eating too much sugar (gotta love Easter mixed with no self control), and I'm pretty sure Tessa ate her weight in it. She could have powered a small town with the energy she was expending. I could still hear her talking to herself an hour after she'd gone to bed.
She had to borrow a bigger basket than the one she brought mid-hunt. Fifty-eight eggs is a lot for three little girls. :)

WOW! What a great Easter weekend! I am so glad that you guy videoed Tessa finding her Easter basket, that was so sweet, so glad I got to see it. That swimsuit pose is classic, reminds me of Marilyn Monroe, watch out mom and dad! I guess we can add modeling to Tessa's list of talents. Fun Easter egg hunt and trip to the zoo, beautiful dress and cute sandals, what more could a girl ask for? What a great Easter holiday, thanks for sharing!!!
