I feel a little guilty that most of the pictures I got of our hunts this year were of Nathan and Alexandra. Admittedly, they are just the most fun to watch! Little kids get so excited about that kind of stuff. :) Here is Alexandra finding an egg by the baseboard. We let the little kids go first, again, followed by the bigger kids later.
Athena and Samantha are scouring the bookshelf for eggs.
Nathan reviewing his spoils, and uncle Mike doing some taste-testing. I'm glad I got this picture of Nathan with Mike because Nathan absolutely ADORES his uncle Mike. He always asks if we can go and visit him. Every time Mike is around, Nathan is right by his side. It's so cute! It makes me happy that they have that relationship.
Alexandra and Samantha are checking out all their eggs.
I was beside myself with how cute Alexandra was on this 2nd Easter egg hunt. I have never seen a little toddler as eager, excited, and aggressive as she was on this hunt. From the moment we let her down the stairs her eyes were darting around the room faster than her feet could follow. She ran from egg to egg saying, "Egg! Egg! Egg! Egg!" She found the ones down low, she found the ones up high, she even found the ones that were secretly hidden behind pillows and books! She found her allotment of eggs almost immediately and wouldn't stop gathering. Within just a couple of minutes she had swept through the library picking up eggs and then into the theater room. She had so many eggs that Jeremy had to keep sneaking handfuls of eggs out of her basket and re-hiding them so the big kids would have eggs to find when they were let loose.
Again, this was a fun evening for everyone! Glad it all went off without a hitch!
