Easter Morning

We had to wake the girls up on Easter, we needed to be to church by 10:45 and we wanted them to fully have a chance to enjoy their morning before being rushed out the door. 
 Usually Ava hates to be woken up, but the second she remembered it was Easter, she was excited!
 Norah too!
 They went out to search for their baskets.  Clearly I need to hide them better because Ava seemed to know just where the Easter bunny "hides them every year".  

 She found hers!

 Love this one!
 Next we had the girls go out back to find some plastic eggs we had hidden all over the yard.

 So fun!

 I even bribed them with candy to get dressed quickly for church.  It was great!

And we were off, ready to start our big day of fun...

More pictures to come.

The time I tortured Norah by taking her to an Easter egg hunt....

Saturday I took the girls to an Easter egg hunt, with Alayah.  It's put on by Chris & D'Auna's church, we went last year and really enjoyed it. 

The girls were all excited to go, but Norah seemed to lose some enthusiasm for the event somewhere along the way....Maybe it was the rain?  Or the fact that I wouldn't carry her?   Who knows, she can just be difficult sometimes, such is life.

 Alayah was happy though, so that's good.  This is my favorite shot from the whole event.  Love her sweet little face. 
 So cute!

 Ava loved the hunt!

 I like how Ava gives Norah the "there, there" pat on the head.  She is a great big sister.

 Poor Norah.  
 Sort of smiling!!

 Little friends.


 Love Ava.
 She found a friend named Sarah, she kept finding new eggs to add to Ava's basket.  : )
 Norah sort of looks happy!!  Yay?!
 Blowing bubbles.
 Dumping all the bubble solution out, rude.  *Note to self, don't buy Norah bubbles....
 Not getting why she has to walk. (My hands are super full carrying all her belongings, including.but not limited to: her basket, her umbrella, her car snacks...)
This all may have something to do with the fact that her already small shoes have been placed on the wrong feet, just a guess. 

Finally D'Auna took pity on her and scooped her up and took her to our car.  

Sorry Norah, sorry we try to do fun things...lets try again next year, the rest of us had fun, Oregon weather and all!!  : )
