Happy Easter 2014!

So Owen was up early with Tom as usual and told Tom that there was an R2-D2 downstairs. That’s one of the “eggs” we hid, and Tom knew he hadn’t been downstairs so was perplexed as to how he knew about it. So he had a talk with him about lying. But Owen claimed he wasn’t lying so Tom finally said “Okay, show me.” And Owen took him to the landing which overlooks the entryway…and part of the toy room where Katie’s changing station is…where Tom had, in fact, placed an R2-D2 on the corner in plain sight!! Mr. Eagle Eyes strikes again!!

Then, surprisingly, when we headed downstairs, he completely missed the egg on the windowsill on the landing…Katie actually saw it as she was coming down (in video).

Owen sharing his eggs with Katie because we warned him not to grab all the eggs before she could see them!

He loved the R2-D2 containers!

She found about three eggs and then she was done—she was opening them and eating the candy as fast as she could!

We tried to get a double bunny ear picture but it wasn’t happening. This was all we got. :)

Some of the eggs had barrettes and hair ties for Katie! She’s putting one on her wrist here.

Overall it was a great success! I think they missed a few eggs so they’ll find them throughout the day. And while candy and chocolate was their pre-breakfast snack, they didn’t do too badly!
