complete with coconut marshmallow eyes.
they were so proud of her!

”mom… we’re saving it for the big day… OF COURSE!”
silly me.

with the snow outside…
it was egg hunt plan b.

i think the girlies really like that anyway…
lots of good hiding spots inside.

i’ll mention…
they do know we hide the eggs.
not that we don’t like the easter bunny…
we have just never talked about a bunny per se.
it’s easter…
we celebrate the resurrection…
the eggs n such… are the “sprinkles” in the day!
for fun!
and it IS fun!
like riley said when daddy asked them…
”why DO we celebrate easter girls?”
”because Jesus is ALIVE”
she said… all bright eyed & proud.
that little love.

just don’t tell them about the peanut butter egg…
i hid for MYSELF!

something really neat too…
in our front yard… we found eggs & treats for the girls.
that was a surprise to us all!
i think one of our sweet friends must have gone hopping about.
well that… or one really big bunny hopped through here.  :)

campbell jumped right in as sous-chef… as they like to call it.
that is one thing she is ALWAYS gung ho about.
wow… she is just getting SO big!
and SO helpful!

it was dry enough to head outside for cascarones fun!
thank you SO much nonny & poppy…
i’m so glad the girls get to experience such a neat tradition.
it was a little piece of home here in wy.

all the little things in our days…
that make life so sweet!
