The Journey of an Egg, Part II

Easter morning brings the excitement of the Easter Bunny's overnight delivery.  Honestly, we would have put the basket on her bed to greet her as she woke up, but I had forgotten to get treats to fill it (I'm not a bad mommy, really!!).  Thanks to Daddy, who made a quick, early-morning run to Giant...


If I'd thought about it a bit beforehand (like I thought about getting Easter basket treats, right?), I would have put her in some slightly more glamorous or Spring-appropriate jammies...  At least the giant stuffed Peep matches.





There is truly nothing like a cream-filled chocolate egg to top off breakfast.  Especially when Mommy's allowed to have a nibble...


While Daddy distracted Samantha briefly in the kitchen, Mommy Bunny surreptitiously distributed the eggs to their hidden nesting places in the living room.


Gotcha!


Proudly checking out the spoils.


Celebrating a job well done.


I'll spare you The Journey of an Egg, Part III, as the journey from egg to egg salad for lunchtime sandwiches is not nearly as exciting, and is actually kind of sad.

Love how our girls - and you and me - are so similar. We totally scrambled the night before just looking for old easter baskets in my mom's basement, and then in pure laziness put little bags of m&m's in it (because it's her favorite chocolate and they were already sitting in my parents house). Then, with the absence of wanting to go to the store, we didn't have eggs (although we died real ones the day before) to hide for an easter egg hunt, so we hid jelly beans in my parents' sun room. Either way, Lilly had a great morning. And she actually enjoyed church which was a nice change, and all day monday she sang "Alleluia"
everywhere we went. :) Hope you guys are doing well...

These are all adorable, but I think the shadowy one behind the curtain is awesome - I always WANT to get that shot and never do!
