Happy Easter + Easter Decor/Festivities

I hope everyone is having a fun morning! For the past two hours the girls have been hiding eggs for my husband and I and reversing the roles. We've done an egg hunt in every room in our house. It was really a lot of fun and we had a lot of laughs. This morning Ellie woke at 6:30 and came into my bed at 7. We woke Summer and they were excited to go downstairs. Ellie told us she saw the Easter Bunny and he was white and wearing flip flops. She also said she saw him peek in at her when she was sleeping ("one eye was open"). Love it! We have video of them jumping up and down and shrieking in excitement before heading downstairs. Summer could not believe she found an egg in the paper towels. Ellie was ecstatic when she found her Easter basket behind the couch. She had to open it up right away. We let them have a few pieces of chocolate then, but I also caught Summer walking upstairs with a chocolate bunny behind her back. She had a mischevious smile on her face. I followed her upstairs where she sat in her room and started to open the bunny. She was surprised to see me and asked me to go away.... She is my little sneaky girl!

Easter Activites + Crafts
Saturday afternoon we dyed eggs. I used Wilton icing colors that I had on hand. Each cup contained 3/4 cup water, a tablespoon of vinegar, and desired color. The colors were so vibrant. 

If you follow me on Instagram you saw our peep houses. I had mentioned in a previous post that I wanted to try making our own. The Pinterest version looked so cute! I had some leftover pink icing in the freezer so I thawed it out and bought the candy. Ellie's house collapsed and Summer's survived, but barely. It looks nothing like my inspiration. A Pinterest fail for sure! Plus, it was a pain in the butt and I ended up doing it myself. It was a good laugh for sure!

These bunnies came out well though! I cut the ears and pink squares and the girls glued them on and made their faces.

I love this craft Ellie made at school:

Yesterday morning we went to an egg hunt and the girls got a picture with the Easter Bunny.

Our Easter Decor
I found these bunnies in the dollar section of Target. Ellie glued cotton balls on them and I punched holes and strung them to make this super cute banner. The white bunny is also from the dollar section of Target and the silver ones from Home Goods.

The centerpiece I made (mentioned here) with missing ears (Ellie and Summer, of course) and the pretty dyed eggs. 

We are going to my in-laws this afternoon, then to my parents for dinner and an egg hunt with cousins. I'm also planning on getting in a run this morning. Hope you have a great day!
