A Busy Easter Weekend

We started out the weekend with a lunch and Easter Egg hunt with the playgroup.

James did pretty good getting the idea of looking for the eggs and putting them in his bucket!

Here he is having lunch with his friend Emma. What cutie pies!

Friday night James colored eggs with his Daddy.

I guess coloring eggs is pretty funny!

Aren't they pretty!

On Sunday morning the Easter Bunny left James a great big basket filled with all sorts of goodies!

Here he is saying "Elephant!" I think these little animals were his favorite part of the basket. He isn't really into candy yet, thank goodness! (That just means more for Chris and I!)

On Easter morning we headed out side to see where the Easter Bunny hid all of the eggs. Can I just say, that Springtime in Vegas is great--especially since my Dad says that he would have been hiding eggs in the snow this year, back in Maine! YUCK!!!!

"Look what I found, Mommy!"

Still looking. . .

Isn't this the best picture? James sure does love his Daddy!

In the afternoon we headed over to Gene and Mel's for an Easter Buffet. A bunch of us misfit orphans with no family in town gathered to eat ham, scalloped potatoes, green bean casserole and PEEPS! Here is Mel, Nate, Natalie and Danielle.

Here is James with his Uncle Sam. Sam successfully taught James how to say "Fageddabaoudit!"

Here is me, Little Betty Crocker, with my Meyer Lemon and Butter Cream-Coconut Easter Bunny cake! Mmmmm mmmm GOOD! (I know, I'm a dork, what can I say??)

Hope you all had as much fun over Easter Weekend as we did!
