Easter

We had a great Easter weekend!



Growing up, we always had a big Easter egg hunt with all of my Brown relatives at my Grandma Brown's house. I am so glad that my cousin, Terri, is keeping the tradition going even though Grandma passed away almost 2 years ago. I probably wouldn't see my cousins, aunts, and uncles anymore if we didn't go to this party.





Do you see the purple piece of candy that McKenna is contemplating? Well, I gave it to her thinking that she could put it into her bag. Duh! What kind of baby would EVER let go of a piece of candy??? So I just decided she could hang on to it for a while...

Notice in the video that now the purple candy is mysteriously missing. (Hint: It's in her mouth. Wrapper and all.)

JJ got an OBSCENE amount of candy! (Don't worry- we're helping him out with that.)


James was able to emerge from his office a few hours to be there. And McKenna (Note chocolate stains on her clothing) is doing her cute, squinty 'it's too bright out here' face. She was not happy with me when I was forcing my finger into her mouth to remove all the chocolate and tin foil wrapper.


After the hunt we went inside for a pot-luck dinner. McKenna was missing her grandparents, who weren't able to make it. But she's a resourceful girl, and she found someone else's grandpa to feed her some chocolate. (My uncle, Kay, feeding her a peanut butter cup.)


I hope you all had a great weekend too!

All I have to say is that your kids crack me up! I just want to be a fly on the wall one day in your house!

How fun! I love Easter. Glad you had a good time at the big hunt and holy candy! You look so cute in these pics, Marianne, and I love the new pic you have of adorable little Mckenna on your sidebar. :)

That last picture is too cute. They all are cute, but I like McKenna's mouth open like a baby bird.

What cute kids you have, Mar. Seriously, they are darling! Love the pictures, and I totally laughed at the video- can't talk, Dad, I'm gettin' candy. Oh, and I really like your coat, it's super cute!

Wow. They didn't have to hunt very hard for that candy, huh!

I just got to read the last several posts because I've been so behind! I really enjoyed catching up. Two kids seems like fun...

What a great cousin to keep the tradition alive. I loved all the pictures. And Unlce Kay looks like a great guy (anyone who helps out with eating chocolate is great ).

I hope you don't mind, but I hopped over to your blog to "spy" on you. :) I think your little girl with that bow in her hair is just adorable. And you're pretty darn cute too. :)

p.s. You would be best to never ask me any advice about potty training since I couldn't get my oldest to poop in the potty until he was almost five. I thought I was going to have a nervous breakdown and be the only mother that had to stash her son's high school locker with pull-ups. Luckily, we both got over it.
