Our Easter was lovely. After several weeks of cold rainy weather, Easter Sunday delivered the warm Spring day we'd been waiting for. It was so nice watching the kids hunt eggs in shorts and sundresses. After a nice meal, we spent the remainder of the day outside. We relaxed in the shade, ate three delicious cakes and burned calories while chasing kids. Early evening brought thunderstorms so we packed tired kids in our cars and headed home.

Leif displaying the bunny cake he was so eager to eat.

Christopher definitely needs to work on his egg hunting skills. He couldn't find them even when they were pointed out to him!

Lilly found one egg her own with a little help from Daddy.

Before the hunt began all the kiddies lined up. Then: "READY, SET, GO!" they were off.

Kevin with baby Tessa.

Tessa and my Mom. So far Tessa is the only McClain grandchild with blue eyes. After 5 kids, and 6 grandkids, my Dad finally got his blue eyed baby!

Christopher steals a smooch from his sister. Lately the two have been getting along so wonderfully, even though Lilly looks not too enthused here.

Sophia in her lovely dress with silly bunny ears. She wore the dress all day, refusing to take it off. This is so different than I remember being as a child. I couldn't wait to get those itchy tights off!

The baskets sit at the ready, waiting for the egg hunt to begin.

Lilly L.O.V.E.S. Sam. Loves him.

I couldn't get enough of Lilly in this dress. Precious.

Lilly and Emma had matching dresses compliments of Lulu. Kristi and I thought it would be a great idea to get some pics of them together. Trying to get pictures of two wiggly babies is hard to do. This was the best of the batch.

Good Friday we had Cara and Sophie over for some Easter crafts and egg dying. The kids had tons of fun and with surprisingly little mess.
