Easter Egg Hunt

It's so hard to believe that a whole year has passed since last Easter. Last year, M was only 6 months old. We carried her around her first Easter egg hunt. We took her Easter basket, but she wasn't too interested, of course. This year, M's "school" had an Easter egg hunt. Her teacher is so smart--each child is color coded at school. For example, M is purple. She drinks from a purple cup, eats off a purple tray, etc. So, she color coded the Easter egg hunt so each child would know what to look for! Silly mom that I am, I changed M into a purple dress to enhance the photo-ops, you know. Here M is picking up the first two purple Easter eggs she found. After this, she just wandered around. She did pick up a few green eggs, but didn't mind handing them over to the rightful owner. Truth be told, she really wasn't too interested in this egg hunt, either. Maybe next year will be the year of the egg hunt.
Happy Easter, everyone.
Natalie, H, and M

Oh, she's pretty in purple. Next year she'll be racing around gathering eggs. Time, it just won't slow down.

BTW, I have always color coded things with my boys...cups, toothbrushes, is blue, one green and one yellow, their fave colors. Even to this day they look for "their" color.

What a clever idea to "color code" the kids! Dressing her in purple for pictures sounds like something I would do. My daughter is 16 months, and she didn't totally get the idea of the Easter egg hunt, either - I have a feeling next year will be a different story for both of us!
