Easter Sunday Fun!!

Well as per the Yates family tradition the Easter Bunny hides the Easter egg baskets for the kids to find. So like any good mom, I tried to catch the whole event in pictures to share with you all.... here you go:

The Easter Bunny did a pretty good job of hiding it so she could find it right away :) I think she was pretty happy to see all that candy..what do you think?

Ethan's turn to find his basket!! Well sort of find his basket. Really that whole concept of finding things isn't quite there yet. So the Easter Bunny made it pretty easy on him and left in it plain sight and even then it was a little tough to get him to actually take it.
Once he did figure out what was in his basket the first thing he wanted was the twix.. although who can blame him it is a rockin candy. He brought it straight to me and grunted which translates to Mom open this for me please...well I can dream he has manners right :) After all the sugar overload, we got ready for a wonderful day at Church. It was a great chance to remind us of the true meaning of Easter..Our Savior Jesus Christ and his glorious gift to us through the Atonement and Resurrection. The children don't quite understand it all yet but I know they will someday. Dave and I really enjoyed the talks and lessons which all focused on the Atonement and the love that our Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ have for us through this sacrifice.

After Church was out we went home and prepared to have the Sorensen clan over for a Yummy Turkey Dinner with all the fixin's. And as soon as dinner was over it was time for the Easter Egg Hunt in the backyard. we attempted to get Ethan involved in it but, I guess he is still a little young to understand the whole grab the egg and put it in the basket. So we let Jocelyn just go to town with all the eggs.

Well I think it is easy to say that the kids enjoyed their Easter Holiday with the family, and will be hyped up on sugar for the next couple months..thanks to mommy.
