i was fearing the kids waking us up really early this morning. but i ended up having to wake them up around 8:30. guess easter isn't nearly as exciting for them these days.
this year the easter bunny left a few treats and some clothes for each kid.
robin eggs, a single row of peeps, a cute chocolate bunny (i think his name is binks - it's the same one EB usually brings) and shopkins for the girls...
max got a book, BFG, and a lego figurine. they're making a movie based on the book so it'll be kind of fun for max to read it and then go see it.
max also got two shirts, two pairs of shorts and swim trunks. the girls got a couple shirts and two pairs of shorts too.
there was a little bit of candy eaten for breakfast, then kenzie made us french toast for brunch. i had to get the pesto pasta, spinach dip and raspberry jello made. just before 2:00, the kids and i left to pick up bryan, grabbed sonic drinks and arrived at the sedillo's at about 2:30. it was a smaller group this year. since jodie's family had easter with the meltons and josh didn't come. connie celebrated with us though. and mom, dad, jen, dave, jacob (came out for food) mason and grace.
we ate. hamburgers, hot dogs, sausage, stouffer's mac+cheese, salad, cheesy potatoes, macaroni salad, my pesto pasta and spinach dip. for dessert, mom made her cookies and i brought some palmier pastries and my jello.
and then it was time for the egg hunt. since we didn't have any little ones this year, the kids all got to start hunting at the same time. someone had suggested max go first and madi reminded them that he can run faster than they can. us adults were able to scramble up five dollar bills, so those got hid in the eggs, along with mini twix, snickers, milky ways, 3 musketeers, ring pops, fun dip and swedish fish.
this was the fastest i've seen madi move in a long time. her quickness earned her three of those dollar bills.
next, the girls and bryan played a few rounds of mexican train dominoes. grace and madi tried to work together. not sure if that helped them or not because they ended up placing fourth and fifth place. we headed home after that because spring break was over and it was back to school the next day.
