Easter 2015

How do these holidays come around SO fast!
Easter in particular is odd because some years its early in March and others it comes in April.

This year Hannah was away in Europe for spring break and so, when she came home on Saturday, the day before Easter, I worried that she might be sad we had started eggs without her.
She doesn't hunt, but still likes to dye.
But then I figured that with all the jet lag...she might not care at all!
She came home and went to bed and slept for about 12 - 14 hours straight.

So...on Saturday, Jenelle and Ivan dyed eggs.
This year we chose to try food coloring and I think we are sticking with this method.
 The colors came out so vibrant! 
I have always loved Paas egg dying kits.
They remind me of coloring eggs as a child.
But in the last several years, its hard to find a basic dye kit...there's tie dye, sparkles, marbling effect, etc. etc.!
And we've tried a few and they just don't live up to their hype!

Ivan is stoked to be coloring eggs!


Because of our early spring, we had lots of flowers for them to use preparing the Easter Nests that evening.

Someone was snoozing hard behind these blinds and oblivious to the whole thing!
But Ivan and Jenelle were sweet enough to make a basket for her!

Jenelle's nest!

Hannah's nest!

And Ivan's nest!

Meet the artists!!
And always...a helper!

Next morning...evidence of the very predictable Easter bunny!
Awww...stuffed animals haven't been showing up for quite some time.
Easter bunny must have been feeling sentimental.

And this year had a twist!
As they were hunting eggs, Ivan somehow came across a special hat that apparently had treats for mom and dad!
He seemed to know just where to look for it!
 It was so cute!
 (inspected and approved by Pounce!)

And so...all but one of the eggs were found (and it was found later that day thank goodness!)...Hannah woke up from her jet lag coma...dinner was served and dessert was eaten!
