I spent the night before Easter Sunday being the Easter Bunny and setting up my table for the next day.

I took Daci to pick out her basket this week and then the Easter Bunny filled it with a Stuffed Bunny, a bunny cup with a straw, a bunny Pez dispenser, the movie Bambi, a watercolor draw board, and eggs filled with candy

I bought these gorgeous pinky purple roses as Costco for my centerpiece and then sprinkled glittery pink Easter grass all over the table

I made little name tags for each of the guests and filled a matching egg with candy for each of us

Sunday morning I took Daci outside to take some pictures.  She really doesn't like pictures and it was a challenge to get her to even look at the camera, let alone smile.  But I think we still came out with some pretty good ones.  She found some yellow flowers and twigs that she was excited about :)

After church we had Carly snap some family pictures of us in our Easter best

Then I came home and prepared the meal.  It was so much fun making a big feast and having family over! 
Daci had fun playing mommy to Eleni while I finished up cookin(don't worry, Micah is sitting right next to them making sure she doesn't fall out)
We had a yummy dinner of Ham and cherry sauce, cornbread,  funeral potatoes, and parmesan roasted asparagus.  Carly brought the yummy (and festive!) Izze drinks and made a delicious berry dessert that I forgot to take a picture of

While Daci was napping the Easter Bunny hid her basket
After dinner we had Daci search for her Easter basket.  It took her awhile and we finally told her to look by her toys.  She found it and was so excited!

Digging through her loot

We had so much fun this year celebrating Easter.  And of course, the most important part was remembering our Savior and the enormous gift he gave to us through the atonement.  I am so grateful for Him and what he has done for me and my family!
