Our kids were very sad this year to miss the annual egg hunt at my parents' house, so we decided to have our own egg hunt. Along with another family, we chose today for the big event.
Katie-bug was bitten by several mosquito's in the middle of the bright sun yesterday (sigh...) and tonight she has a swollen leg and a low grade fever. We are hoping and praying she doesn't end up in the hospital with cellulitis again. She had a tough time enjoying the egg hunt with her 'owie.' But she soldiered on. Candy was waiting....
My eggs are falling out 'cause my basket is so full.
I purposely dressed to match my basket. Not really.
Squirreling away his eggs
I wonder how much candy I can eat without anyone noticing.

Smile, pretty so Mama will be happy
When we were visiting Ryan in South Carolina, my aunt gave the girls a big bucket of cake mix, muffin cups and every imaginable candy and sprinkles to decorate them. Jillian made the cupcakes yesterday and decided to get ALL the decorations out. She invited the little kids to help (the 3 littlest were only allowed to make one--their own--'cause who wants a cupcake that has been licked---ewwww).
Decorating is serious business
The end result. I know, I know...my stomach feels nauseous, too
Chloe's claim to fame is that her cupcake had 31 pieces of candy on it.
At least they're really pretty....
