I've never really been into the whole idea of the Easter Bunny. I simply could not muster up enough imagination as a child, to picture a bunny delivering Easter baskets full of goodies. So the Easter Bunny is pretty much non-existant in our house. Nonetheless, one of my dearest friends (Danna) called me up during the week. Her kids were wanting to visit the Easter Bunny at the mall. Both of our husbands were out of town, and so we depend on each other to keep our sanity while being single Moms. So I loaded up my kids and headed to the mall.

I was too lazy to take Owen and Lucy out of their strollers, so I beckoned the "Easter Bunny" to leave his garden wonderland. I think my kids look pretty darn cute with their bunny ears on, don't you?

On Saturday our ward primary held it annual Easter Egg Hunt. Adam had to give Owen a bit of a prep talk since last year he barely managed to get a few eggs. Owen's response was, "I- I- I'm going to be rocket fast!"

On Sunday Adam's parents had us over for an amazing meal. I totally regret not taking a picture because my mother-in-law always makes holidays so special. The table was completely decked out in bunny-galore. We feasted on a REAL Honey Baked Ham, Mormon potatoes, corn, rolls, green salad, fruit with dip, and LOTS of Easter Candy. We then had Family Home Evening to remind us about the true meaning of Easter. It was a beautiful Holiday.

I love when you get to have big holiday meals at someone else's house.

Am I the only one who didn't serve funeral potatoes for Easter dinner?

I need to make me some of those quick.

I love those darn "funeral potaoes" but unfortunately I didn't make them either. Isn't it great when the whole mess is at someone else's house. That is a present in itself.

Cute bunny pictures, and bonus points for beckoning the bunny over to you so that you didn't have to get the kids out of the stroller!

So how many eggs did Owen get? I'm dying to know.

Cute pictures!

Next time I am taking my camera to the mall with me. I thought they would cut off your hand if you tried to circumvent the $20 photo option... now I know and I am ready.

Your family is so darling!

Sounds like a fun Easter! Your kids are growing up way too fast! You sound like such a fun "holiday" mom. Your kiddos are lucky to have you!

Too cute Meg! Malia was so confused looking at that picture! She was wondering why "he" looked like a girl bunny? "Is that Mrs. Easter bunny, who helps make the eggs?"

I love seeing all these cute pics of your kids!!!

You're brave to take your kids to the mall. I have a great picture of you at the Easter hunt, you know the one Mike took without you knowing?

PS I love how patient you are with your kids. It seems like I have to try hard to keep things together.

Cute pics. Looks like a fun Easter. The outdoor shots look so pretty with all the pines - like Pinetop or something.
