easter entertainment

Easter proved to be full of entertainment this year.The festivities started early with 3 anxious little ones...
who patiently waited at the top of stairs while their mom and dad forced them to smile for pictures.
It was pure torture. 
We're all about holiday torture around here.

We had a visit from the bunny who hid a few eggs around our living room...there were some really sneaky hiding spots...since our living room is 10x10.
It was entertaining to watch them scramble around the tiny room, hunting for their 4 eggs.

7 seconds later, the hunt was over and the vultures children moved on to their baskets.
They were thrilled with them.

I, on the other hand, completely despise them.
I painted them last year and don't know what I was thinking. 
They are TOTALLY not my style.
They look like an '80s troll doll threw up all over them.
They make my eyes burn. 
And Harper's looks like it is Hawaiian theme. 

Anyway...the contents were a BIG hit.

We had fruit smoothie (our only healthy part of the entire day) and I attempted to make an egg shaped cinnamon sugar roll. 
It was not picture worthy. 
It looked like a huge blob.
It was awesome.
Luckily my kids are easily impressed.

it was super bright in the dining room.

After breakfast we forced the kids to pose for pictures in their new outfits.
They were thrilled.

dawson looks like a teeny tiny dylan.
or chandler bing.
beckham looks like he's in pain...sheer pain.

We spent the afternoon with friends enjoying the Masters and an egg hunt.
Eating so much food that we were all comatose by the end of the day.

The most entertaining part of the day for me was watching all the kids scramble around the yard in search of the eggs. 
So cute.

b figured it out pretty quick...
his first find...
inspecting the goods...
he is his mother's son.
d still sportin' the shades.
ryan and dawson.

harper and beckham.

harper and ben.

And while the men were being entertained by golf, the women were entertaining each other (and all the kids...ahem) outside.

Isabel and Laura.

Jenny and Luke.
And the kids were playing unattended upstairs. 
And finding their own forms of entertainment.
Like cutting their own hair.
