Easter Weekend 2010

Here is a Re-Cap of our Easter weekend.
In true Larson fashion, we had several Easter celebrations/activities to attend!

To kick off the Easter Weekend, we dyed Easter Eggs at Kevin's parents house.
Claire loved it, although she was into everything, so we had to regulate her egg dyeing.
These two are serious about their egg dyeing.
Can you say look alikes?
Kate dyeing her eggs (from 2 view points)
Some of our finished eggs:
Then, on Saturday morning, we had our neighborhood Egg Hunt.
As soon as we walked up, all our neighbors chastised us & gave us a hard time for moving.
We will truly miss this community.
Every year, at the neighborhood Egg Hunt, the Easter Bunny arrives to kick off the Egg Hunt.
Kate was actually estactic & excited to see the Easter Bunny.
(Obviously, she hasn't been too scarred from THIS)
Lining up & getting ready to collect eggs:
And, they're off!
Searching for eggs:
Claire got 2 eggs & Kate got 5 eggs. They aren't the most aggressive egg hunters...
Kate posing for a picture mid Egg Hunt:
One of our neighbors brought their pet bunny. Both girls were more into the bunny than the eggs:
After the neighborhood Egg Hunt, we headed to Kevin's parents for another Egg Hunt.
We need to give our girls lessons in Egg hunting. They would find an egg, sit down, open it to see what was inside & then eat the candy. They just weren't interested in collecting a lot of eggs.
The girls & some of their cousins:
Then on Easter Sunday, we headed to church.
I helped in Kate's classroom so I missed the service, but Kevin said it was great.
While we were at church, the Easter Bunny arrived at our house:
The girls get the same thing every year in their Easter baskets (swim suit, swim suit cover up, a pair of pajama's & a new sun dress and of course Reeces's eggs. Best.Easter.Candy.Ever!)
This year they also got some new headbands, a coloring book and these personalized dolls with their names on them & a bible verse
( I chose the Bible verse that we read at each of their dedications)

The girls were so excited to see that the Easter Bunny came while we were at church
***I had their Easter Baskets assembled the night before, but when we get home from church, I run inside put the baskets out while Kevin is unloading the girls from the car when we get home from church. We can get away with this...for now!)
Kate digging into her loot (love the dress she is holding up..it is from Target's Libery of London line. LOVE it all!!)
Claire collecting eggs on during our mini inside Egg Hunt (it rained all day on Easter!)
Checking out each other's baskets:
My attempt at an Easter picture:
(Kate was going to have NOTHING to do with it)
I tried again by the fireplace, but they were too obsessed with the eggs & baskets.
Kevin finally made them smile, but my camera was on the wrong setting, so Kate is out of focus & Claire's feet are blurry. Oh well, this was the best one. *sigh*
These were not originally their Easter outfits.
A few months ago, I got them some really cute sundresses & sandals.
But, since we got a cold front & it was 50 degrees & raining, we went with different outfits.
I guess I will save their actual Easter dresses for Mother's Day.

The rest of our Easter was spent with my family & our family friends at our Easter: Resurrected Party .
And, can you believe it....I didn't take ANY pictures while we were there!!
I was having too much fun hanging out, eating & socializing that I didn't even take my camera out of the bag!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter celebrating that "He is Risen!"
I am on Spring Break recovering from a busy holiday weekend & gearing up to move this weekend!

  14. What a wonderful post, so many things to comment upon! I love the bunny shirts they wore for the Easter egg hunt, so cute! Isn't the Liberty line adorable?! I bought a couple of pieces myself for my little girl and am kicking myself for not getting a few other pieces. I love the babydolls and have bookmarked the site as I want to get one of those for my little girl's birthday next month - thanks for sharing!

    Oh, and I hope the house hunting is going well!

  15. I love the Easter baskets...and what great ideas that you put in there...need to remember those for next year. My girls got little dolls too...and Kaylin LOVES her so much...sleeps with it every night.

    And love the bunny shirts!

  16. And I was just happy to actually have Easter Baskets for my kids this year, geez! :) Love that you know that Target clothing line. I go about as far as Circo. Haven't been lately, but with Spring and all the cute clothes, could be dangerous! Hope you are doing okay with the packing-thinking of you guys!

  17. Mel, You gotta come virtual blog party with me. You bring the dessert for sure.

  18. wow, adorable girls and such a great post! reeses eggs are the BEST candy ever!

  19. My girls had to wear back up dresses too! Stupid weather, but the Mother's day idea is brilliant. I got them all three different, but coordinating Liberty of London sundresses. The cuteness. Can't handle the cuteness. I ADORE the dolls. I need to get them for my girlies. So special. LOVE!!!
