To begin our Easter celebration this year, I let the kids dye easter eggs. I decided to do it on our back porch this year. I set out a plastic tablecloth with all the colors and I put the kids in grubby t-shirts.
Mallory had so much fun! :-)
Easter Sunday, the kids woke up to find that the Easter Bunny had visited our house during the night!!!
Every year, the Easter Bunny leaves each of the kids a "Peter Rabbit" hollow chocolate bunny! This has become Mallory's favorite easter treat! This year he also left some Raisinettes and Hersheys Chocolate Bunnies!!!
Jack and Mallory coming in to see what the bunny brought... I love how they're holding hands!!!
Mallory begged to eat just 1 thing before church!!
After a wonderful church service, we went to my mom and dad's for a fabulous Easter lunch filled with fun activities for the kids.
All 7 grandkids... Micah, Gavin, Jack, Mallory, Grant, Scarlett, and Macy
My sweet angels!
After a few pictures in their Easter clothes, they headed into the backyard for an Easter egg hunt!

Opening all their eggs!
I love this one!! It just says "Sweet" to me!
After the hunt, my daddy made homemade hamburgers!!! Mama fixed all the trimmings including baked beans, chips, dip and HOMEMADE ice cream and brownies for dessert!!!! MMMmmmmm!!! After we stuffed ourselves full, my mom and dad had another fun activity planned for the kids. Mama had made each child an apron with their initial on it...
Mallory and me
She gave each child a pot and stickers that spelled out their names in glitter letters!! They had fun putting their names on their pots and decorating them with all kinds of spring stickers.
After their pots were decorated, they got to pick a zinnia to plant in their pot. Papa helped with the soil and planting.
Mallory was so proud of hers!! Nana gave each child a watering can to water their flower with.

I hope you had a wonderful Easter, too!
He is risen!!!
