Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a great Easter Sunday! We had a very busy busy day!
Filled with fun, family and food! Hashtag Real Life.  Don't worry, I got a couple semi-decent pictures later in the post!

Easter baskets all filled and ready!
Even Ruby was so happy to see her goodies in the basket!
I got these magnify glasses at Kohl's--later I found out they had whistles on the bottom of the handles! (oi!) The boys love looking for bugs, so they've already gotten a lot of use. 

I found these glasses at the Dollar Tree--Luke has been wearing his non-stop! 
Sam and his bubbles! He couldn't wait to go outside with them.  

Ruby loves books, so I put a bunch of little board books his her basket.

Next was the Egg Hunt in our yard!
It was pretty chilly outside, but I managed to get Ruby to get down and grab a couple eggs before she flipped out at the cold wind in her face!

Sam was first to find a golden egg!

Ruby was DONE.

Luke finally found his golden egg!

THEN, because I'm so awesome, I made my kids bunny pancakes!  Sam said he didn't want any, but once he saw it he ate the entire thing! 
Luke requested scrambled eggs, so I made those too.

After breakfast, I had to scramble myself, and get everyone ready for church.  There wasn't any time to take a picture before church, so I had to cross my fingers that Ruby wouldn't get her dress dirty crawling all over the floors!  All was fine, and we attempted pictures when we got home. These three make it SO hard to get a decent picture.  At least they're cute.

AND THEN, hubby wanted to try and get a picture with us in it too!  That meant a tripod, a timer, a place to sit....but I went with it.

It was really really sunny which is never good for pictures.  The kids were squinting and scrunching their faces the whole time.  We tried some different angles, locations, and tactics and this is what we ended up with:

Ruby had no interest in looking at the camera when there wasn't a person behind it, so 4/5 is going to have to do.  Since we haven't had a family picture in probably over a year...I'll take it!

The rest of the day I spent making mini cheesecakes and strawberry spinach salad to take to dinner with my siblings and their families! We spent 3+ hours eating and hanging out and then came home and I was so dead tired I couldn't stay awake after 9:30 and kept falling asleep while hubby was talking to me and trying to watch TV with me!

It was a fun filled day and I hope that you all had just as much fun, family, and food as we did!
Happy Easter Everyone!
