Easter

There are only two times a year I let my kids stuff candy in to their mouths like crazed freaks. Halloween being one and Easter the other. So let's just say that yesterday was a pretty good day for the Morris kids. Things started off with a bang when the kids woke up to find awesome loot that the 'ol EB left for them. The EB is smart and knows of the One Spot at Target and got many awesome el-cheapo toys at the last minute. Too bad I have been so tired in the mornings that I chose to sleep in instead of witness my children's joy as they discovered their baskets. So no pics of that. Do I feel bad about it? Not at all. Dale says they were happy though, and I believe him.

So on to the super-fun take a million pictures in 5 minutes before you head off to church tradition. I did manage to wake up in time to make my children look presentable.

We have a big green grassy park a few doors down from the house that makes a great spot for pics so you will be seeing this background again in posts to come, I'm sure.
The girls' outfits look familiar you say? That's because they were also their Christmas outfits. Yes, I purposely bought dresses that would work for both holidays to save money and I'm gonna do it again every year. Such a money/time saver and does anybody really remember what other people's kids wore at Christmas? Not to mention that I bought them right before Christmas and they were totally on sale.
Oh, those lady killer eyes!I wish I had glittery pink shoesies like these!

After church we went to grandma and grandpa's for our egg hunt. We totally blew the EB facade when all of the kids saw Dale and I walking around hiding eggs in the backyard. Oh well, they are gonna find out sometime right? The EB story is so far-fetched anyways. Tabby and Rex both were beginning to be skeptical. The story of Santa on the other hand is WAY more believable.

The hunt is on!
And there you have it, the day was ended with another unrepentant face stuffing candy session.

Looks like you guys managed to have a great Easter despite trying to get settled in your new house. Did you get rid of all that cat hair everywhere? Way to be frugal with the Easter/Christmas attire. Your kiddos look way cute in them and I'd have never known they were double dipping in their holiday wear!
