Easter Day

This morning, Mason woke me up at 6:30 a.m. asking if he could go downstairs to find his Easter basket. I told him he had to wait until his sisters were awake ... which, thanks to him, wasn't long. Sigh.

Mason found his eater basket ... and his Razor scooter ... he was so excited!
Chicky ... just looking cute ...
Nika ... looking just as cute, with big brother looking on ...
Bubs, showing off some Easter basket goodies ... {So funny ... Mason is sitting here watching me blog and he just told me, "Mom, I don't look cool in that picture. Look at my smile. Look at my eyes. I don't look cool." Haha.
The kids, enjoying their loot ...
After eating breakfast ... homemade waffles, courtesy of Daddy ... the kids put their silly face stickers on the eggs we dyed last night. Several of the eggs landed on the floor, though. Ahh, the joys of having a 2 and 3 year old.
We had a nice relaxing day at home. Kyle's sister, her husband and my nephew came over to spend the day with us. I did a cake smash shoot with my nephew ... I thought it was fun ... Jaxson, well ... I think he thought different. Haha.

For dinner, we made a good 'ole American meal ... steaks, baked potatoes, pasta salad and strawberry shortcake. Nope ... no ham here. :o)

After dinner, we did an Easter egg hunt for the kids. There were just 40 eggs total, so that meant each kid got 10 eggs. Mason founds his eggs in about 2.2 seconds, so he proceeded to throw them back in the grass for the little kids so that he could find more of the eggs that were hidden harder for him. All the kids had a great time.

Chicky ... she was having a blast!

Nika ... I wasn't sure whether or not she would participate, but boy did she prove me wrong! She caught right on, carried her little Easter basket and took off for the eggs. She is walking 100% of the time, but she is very wobbly on the grass. She fell a lot, dumping her eggs and picking them up every time. So cute ...

Jaxson enjoying his first Easter ... he was shaking those eggs like crazy ... go Jaxson! BTW ... this is my rockstar nephew who started walking at like 10 1/2 months ... the little dude is crazy!
