Easter Eggstravaganza

Yesterday we had an egg hunt and brunch at our house with all the Carters. Except for Nate, who had better things to do and books to study, apparently. There were about five hundred and three eggs for each kid. It was fun to watch the kids miss the grass- and rock-colored eggs. Note the one RIGHT behind Allison's head. My favorite, though, was watching Landon open up the egg right there on the grass, eat the candy, then leave the empty egg there. Too funny.Poppy had a blast with the kids on the trampoline - and by himself on the trampoline too. (See Carter blog for more pics!)The Easter Bunny came to our party too - but it was wierd, he must have fallen in a vat of blue egg dye first! Allison figured out who it REALLY was, and pointed Colman out to everyone right away.Later, after we were all stuffed to the hilt with crepes, omelettes and chocolate, the girls put on a little show for us,
including the "Shoe Song", magic tricks and a few other things they had concocted.Look, Allison can do the "I'm trying not to smile" thing like her Dad.

A wonderful time was had by all (except for Nate, of course - we missed you!). Thanks for making the EE08 a hare-raising success (yuk-yuk).

the party looks like a blast, the blog looks darling, except it took me a minute to find your music list... sometimes I just like to have you on in the background!

Jordan, my what keen eyes you have! Why yes, the blue bunny is none other than retrofitted Babe, the blue ox. Cole had fun hopping and bouncing around the yard.

Did you just call him Col? And spell it COLE?!

Nick said...

I was afraid that if I called him Col, people would think it short for Colonel. He would be charged with impersonating an officer.
