I don't even know how much candy was consumed before 8:30 a.m.

I love when Easter falls late in the year. I can actually put my kids in Springy clothes, as opposed to snow suits, and take them outside for Easter egg hunts. When Easter falls too early we are at the mercy of Mother Nature A.K.A. Snow... Nothing worse than looking for eggs in the snow. Today hubby and I were up at 5:30 ready to go. Not exactly sure why we were up at 5:30 (might have something to do with the fact that we are getting closer to that  20 hours of daylight phenomenon we experience up here) but we were. We enjoyed the quiet and a cappuccino before we started cooking Easter breakfast.
Before we moved, Easter was always a large brunch at our home that friends and family came to. We now live in a different state with just my husbands father. So our brunches now consist of our immediate family, hubbys dad, friends and neighbors. I am starting to get use to it, it has taken some time, but I am starting to get use to it.
By 8 a.m. the kids had their Easter Baskets torn apart.
Easter grass everywhere...
I don't even want to know how much candy was consumed before 8:30 a.m.
Breakfast was at 9, and did we indulge. No, I am not counting Weight Watchers Points today. I will be eating nothing but bananas and apples tomorrow to make up for the damage done to day! Bacon Granola, oh ya, we went there!
Our afternoon consisted of the all important Easter Egg Hunt. I will be the first to tell you that I made my kiddos sleep off some of the sugar during quiet time, before the egg hunt. My poor JayJay was so amped, I thought her head was going to start spinning.  There comes a point when you realize that the best thing for everyone is to just put them in their room and let them come down off of the sugar, safely in their own beds...

I hope you had a beautiful Easter!
