Easter is my favorite holiday. Obviously it is a fabulous holiday to celebrate, the most significant one in my mind- He is Risen! Hallelujah! But, the weather is always great, family is together and there is good food. Plus when you are a kid you get pretty new clothes and prizes from the Easter Bunny. I was so excited for Easter this year with Emerson. I could not wait to experience the whole thing with her...
The weather was great on Saturday, so we did a little preliminary Easter egg hunt outdoors. Emerson totally "got" the game instantly. She went from one egg to the other, dropping them into her basket. She didn't realize right away that there were things inside the egg. Once she figured that out, it was even more fun to watch.
Sunday we went to church as a family and then came back to watch the rest of the Masters while Emerson napped. When she woke up we did round two off the egg hunt indoors since the weather was not the greatest. When she heard us say that we were going to find easter eggs again, she perked right up and was ready to go. She went all around the house gathering all the eggs and then ended at the "grand finale"- this was where she got her prizes from the Easter bunny. The most prized possession is her new babydoll stroller. She has not stopped pushing it around yet. In fact last night when it was time for her bath, she actually cried when we took her away from the stroller.
Here are some pictures from the weekend.

Inspecting the eggs from the day before to make sure no treats were missed.
This is the best we could do of the three of us. Emerson was ready for her nap and wanted nothing to do with pictures.
