Happy 6th Birthday Eve!

… and Happy Easter!

Today was a big day! I normally leave little piles of presents on the table for the kids on their birthday, and the Easter bunny leaves their baskets on the table, so we had quite a full table this morning.

Easter morning.  They started with the Easter baskets.  And the chocolate.

Because it was her birthday, Lex agreed to read her new book out loud at breakfast.  She loves when Lex reads to her.

After plenty of candy and a few chores we began the first of many Easter egg hunts for the day.  I think we did six Easter egg hunts today!

I got Eve a Jr. Scientist kit because she's always telling people that she's a scientist.  She was pretty excited about it.

Waiting for Lex to hid the eggs outside.  Not to complain about the weather, but 55° isn't very warm if there's no sun and lots of wind!

We came back inside to warm up and play some more. More company came and we began the official family party. :)

Lex got a 3D puzzle in his Easter basket this morning.  It was a group effort, but we got it done.  Lex put the final two pieces in and then ran around bragging like he solved the whole puzzle.  :)

All decked out in jewels from Aunt Mandy.  Eve wanted pizza for dinner, but due to the holiday none of the delivery places were open.  Fortunately Mema thought of this ahead of time and we bough frozen pizza from KAF.  It was ok, but not as good as the fresh stuff.
