Charlie and Lily had a blast celebrating their first Easter! They kicked off the festivities yesterday with some Easter egg dying. Mommy was very excited over this, but Charlie and Lily weren't all too interested. When we had some problems getting they dye to work, both babies got mad and had to go down for a nap. By the time they woke up, though, all problems were dissolved and they had a nice pile of brightly colored eggs waiting for them!
This morning, Charlie and Lily woke up to see what the Easter Bunny had brought them. Their baskets contained some toys, bibs and teething rings, plus they received a big bobble penguin toy to share! They both seem to like grabbing and pushing Mr. Penguin around. After a nice morning and afternoon of playing with their new goodies, Charlie and Lily got dressed in their Easter finest and headed over to Grandma and Grandpa's for Easter dinner. The Easter Bunny (this time known as Grandma) had left the babies each HUGE baskets of gifts. Both babies received lots of summer outfits, Baby Einstein DVDs, shoes, sippy cups, books and more. Such spoiled little bunnies. Charlie and Lily took a nap while the adults ate dinner, but were up in plenty of time to sing "Happy Birthday" to Uncle John, who will celebrate his big day this Thursday. We headed home soon afterwards to get our sleepy chicks to bed. It was a great day for all of us though. Happy Easter, everyone!
Charlie and Lily loved their fancy outfits!
