Happy Easter from Our Happy Home to Yours!

Our day started with a visit from the mama-easter bunny who had left baskets for the kids. Imagine my surprise when I found out that papa-easter-bunny & ryan-easter-bunny had joined in the fun and had left something for me too. It made my day, it did!

Then off to church as normal. Thankfully I was able to catch a few pictures before church w/ them all dressed up and in brand new shoes, well - for the girls. I bought them several months ago & Emma has been sneaking hers out and wearing them. I even caught her outside the other day riding her bike in them! She loves having "heels" on!

After church we headed out to our friends house, this was our 8th year to celebrate Easter with them. Precious, precious friends who love us despite our faults and ornery kids.

Their favorite things from their Easter baskets, no - not the chocolate - FLIP FLOPS! Little Emma, bless her heart - sometimes I think she loves flip flops more than life itself. Actually she loves shoes of any type and has since the day we got home with her.

Kindness and love runs in our friend's family, Brent's mom has a yearly tradition of buying kites for all of the kids. They all enjoyed them, but Rebecca seemed to especially enjoy it.

Then the egg hunt, all I have to say about this is ... Emma is LOT like my sister Charlotte. I'll leave it at that.

What a way to end the day, enjoying a cupcake on the porch swing. Life just doesn't get any better than that!

Happy Easter my friends, hope you had a wonderful day!

What a fun afternoon! Love the pictures. There is something about flip flops that my kids just love as well. Peter spends the entire summer in them.

The last one of Emma is just perfect.
