Easter 2012

I'm finally getting out my Easter pictures.  That weekend was pretty eventful and chock full of egg-hunty goodness!  On the first, we went to William's school for a church/community egg hunt.  There were crafts inside and a cute little puppet show to teach the kids about the real Easter story and how eggs, bunnies, and candy factor it.  Little Charlotte was not walking just yet so I had a heck of a time trying to wrangle her in and not let her crawl into the street.

Then the Saturday before Easter, we all went to Wegmans for breakfast with the Easter Bunny.  They had some coloring pages and William decorated a couple of cookies while we enjoyed their breakfast buffet.  Charlotte is a HUGE fan of characters.  That is, anyone costume (ie. Geoffry the Giraffe at Toys R Us, Muno and Brobee from Yo Gabba, Gabba! etc.)   She did not care for Santa, but I think if he were in a Santa mask, she would have been more friendly.  Anyway, she couldn't get enough of the Bunny.  She wanted to pet him, wave at him, hold his hand, anything to be near him.  She got pretty upset when it was time to leave and let other kids have a turn.

 After breakfast, we headed out to another egg hunt.  This one was awesome!  We met in a large church where they had baby goats and huge bunnies to pet, crafts and a magic show.  There were so many eggs to be found!  Charlotte was getting better at toddling by now so she had her own basket.

 Easter morning!  William woke to find that the Easter Bunny had left a trail of eggs from his bedroom, downstairs to the family room where his Easter basket had been filled.  We have morning church this year so we couldn't do much but get ready for church.  Charlotte had her first day in Nursery and did just fine.  While we were away, the Easter Bunny snuck back to our house and hid a bunch of eggs out in the back yard.  It was such a beautiful day!
