My Favorite Holiday

Easter is my absolute favorite holiday. I love spring, the flowers, the colors,
the traditions, and...Mimi and Papa's Easter party. We start counting down the days in January...Cade asks weekly, "when is Easter and when are we going to Mimi and Papa's?" I love the colors and designs of the dyed eggs...
and I love this cute family...especially their matching Easter bonnets...
Now, the tradition is you must come with a homemade Easter bonnet. At times, they get a little crazy. Rich didn't hold back at all...
Randi's was cute...you can't see the flowers or glittered "R" she
decorated it with...beautiful girl... A fun bunch of cousins are anxiously awaiting the hunt... And, the egg hiding masters are laying down the rules... Even the adults are geared up and ready to go. There are prizes...so, it gets a little rowdy. It has actually become a little toned down...now that there are kids involved...
Searching and searching....
Miss Debbie and I use to be pretty competitive. She said this year she was searching "for" Emerson. Sure. Right. Whatever you say Debbie...
Counting the eggs...
I think they hid about 140 eggs!!!
Mr. C and minnie Mr. C....I love these boys like crazy...
Annual group photo...
And...the grand Pu-bah. He always has the silliest bonnet...
Thank you Mimi and Papa for making another wonderful memory for us...it was perfect.

Great pics, Mindy! I completely forgot my camera! What a fun Easter, we had such a great time visiting with you guys and the boys had so much fun with your kiddos! Just reminds me that we don't get together nearly often enough!
