Easter was super fun this year. Lately, every holiday has been my favorite, until the next one comes along! This years Easter started out with a party at the kids school. Memere got them a bunch of new, cute clothes so we dressed them up for egg hunting with their friends. 

Sadie is really excited about her newly discovered tongue!!

We went to Andy's class first.  They made funny little chick hats (which Andy wore proudly the whole time) and sang "Little Bunny Foo-Foo".  Then it was time to hunt.

Last year Andy was literally tripping over the eggs, oblivious that he was supposed to be gathering them. Then, when he finally did pick them up, he would sit there and open the one he had, instead of finding more. This year he was much more efficient, and had much more fun.
Julie couldn't wait to get over to her class.  She was so patient for her brother's time and didn't even show him where the eggs were, just waited for it to be her turn.  When her hunt began, she found a bunch right away.  We told her she probably had enough, so she helped her classmates find the rest.  Even her teachers commented on what a great friend she was.
On Easter Sunday, we got up and went to church.  I made the kids pose for a few pictures before the got to do what they really wanted to do.....
(I still melt when I see how much they adore each other. I have the sweetest kids)
This!! We got a trampoline this week and it has been a huge hit, for the kids and us!
My big boy is getting too big!  All three kids were angels in church.  Sadie slept while Julie and Andy sat with friends and colored and sang.  They make me so proud!
After church, lunch, and a great nap, the Easter Bunny made his delivery.  He was so nice to wait until Daddy got home from work.
Sadie loved her taggie blankie.
Andy got a cool hat!
And Julie found eggs in record time!
Veda sat back to enjoy the show!  I could just eat her up!  She and Auntie Bess came over a little early, it was so wonderful to have a little quality time with them!
I love this picture so much!  Both Sadie's face and Stephen's face are classic!  I have no idea what Pop-pop is saying, but it has both of their attention!
I also love this photo!  Me Bestie loving on her sweet boy! Life doesn't get any better!
More adorableness with Lauren doing "Itsy Bitsy Spider"  She is so smart!! I know I shouldn't be surprised, she is my Niece. :)
I love all the love!  Lauren getting a little snuggle from Memere!
"Look at the egg I found Auntie!!"  I took about 10 pictures of her with this egg, and she was so excited to show it to me, the egg was hiding her face in all but this one!

Here is a great one of Bess! Veda held onto that egg for a long time! And you can see the more of the party in the back ground, fun times.
"Don't forget your lunch, Everett!"  These boys make me smile so much.  They are turning into great friends!
This is priceless.  All the cousins together, on the same blanket, happy.
Well, at least for a second.  The sequence of pictures before and after these shots are hysterical, and may have to be a separate post.
Lauren really got the whole picture taking thing down!
I guess it is safe to say, a happy Easter was had by the Hunters!  Thank you to everyone who came and helped up break in the new house with love, egg hunting, pizza eating, frosting smearing, trampoline jumping and lots and lots of laughter.  We are one lucky bunch.
Just want to add, I have typed this whole blog mostly one handed because I have a Sadie on my lap.  She got her first tooth last night!! And her second one is right next to it, ready to poke through!!
