Happy Easter!

What an amazing Easter weekend! I don't think we could have packed anymore excitement into it if we tried!! It all started with brave Anna, who decided to have some friends over to decorate Easter eggs. They all had the best time and did a great job! Miraculously her kitchen table survived the event!!

Jackson loved to scoop the eggs up and place them into the carton.

It didn't take long for Jackson to figure out that they were eggs that could actually be eaten!! Yummy!

The finished product. They all did such a great job!!

Then Saturday morning we were off on our first Easter egg hunt of the day at the Country Club. It was such a wonderful event filled with the Easter bunny, an egg hunt, bouncy house, and a delicious Easter brunch. We will definately be making this an annual tradition!

Best buds waiting for Easter egg hunt!

And they are off! It is amazing what a difference a year makes. Last year Jackson casually picked up a few eggs and this year he was serious! He ran and picked up as many eggs as he could find!!

He found a nest full of eggs!

He just couldn't wait to open them up and sample the delicious treat inside!!

The Easter bunny made another appearance at brunch!

Next stop, Easter egg hunt at the church. Jackson was so ready to get his hands on some more eggs!

After the Easter egg hunt, they had a cookout with Jackson's favorite....hotdogs! It was so cute to watch all the kids sit on the bench eating!!

Finally, we ended the night with our last egg hunt and dinner at our sweet friend Kristin's house. You'd think the kids would have been Easter egg hunted out.......but nope!! Eagerly awaiting to get their hands on more eggs!!

Some of the boys checking out the eggs.

All the kids then lined up to check out what they got!! I have to say, Jackson had the largest Easter basket by far. I ordered it online, and had no idea it was so big! He did pretty good but at one point he did tip over his basket and lose his eggs. Luckily all the kids were very sweet and helped him fill it back up!

The Easter bunny came to the Nesmith house!

Jackson was so excited to find his Easter basket!

The Easter bunny sure was good this year! Jackson was very excited about his new towel and can't wait to use it at Noni's beach.

All smiles on his first Easter!

After finding the baskets and another mini egg hunt, we headed to church!

The perfect Easter present!!

All the excitement wore Beckett out!

Who loves chocolate?......this guy!!

Finally, we ended the Easter weekend making and decorating Easter egg cake pops. Jackson was quite proud of his finished product!!
Happy Easter and many blessings to everyone!!
