Easter 2014

Coloring eggs for the first time. So much fun with her cousins!!
Cheeeeeese :)
Her reaction to finding a minion egg on her second Easter egg hunt of the day!
Mia learned about the surprises inside the eggs. So on her second egg hunt she stopped finding eggs and just dug in to the treats :) ha ha!
So much fun jumping with dad!
This girl would NOT look at the camera. Oh well, at least you get a good look at her gorgeous dress.
She liked her marshmallow pop about as much as she liked peeps, ha!
Mia's pink bow c/o Sweet Angel Kreations
Easter is now at the top of my favorite holidays list!! We had the BEST weekend! It's definitely the BEST having a kid who can be involved in all the fun activities :) We spent the weekend with my in laws and Mia was spoiled rotten (okay, we all were)! Mia was soaking up all the love and attention from her grandparents, aunts and cousins! I was so blessed to marry into such an amazing family. We all have so much fun together!
Anyway, our Easter fun started Saturday morning with a local Easter egg hunt. The perk of my hubs coming from a tiny, tiny town is that there wasn't much competition for the eggs! Mia easily filled up her basket (she's a pro at egg hunting!) and there was no fighting from kids or parents over eggs (I hear these things can get crazy)! We dyed eggs, well, I let Mia color on them while I dyed them :) The Easter bunny visited Saturday evening and hid eggs all over the yard for Mia and her cousins to enjoy a second egg hunt. Again, Mia was a pro! After finding a few eggs she started popping them open and shoving in the candy before we could stop her, ha ha! 
Sunday morning we woke up to baskets left behind from the Easter bunny but Mia had no interest in anything but her slinky. She kept saying "Whoa!" as she played with it :) We didn't even get a picture of Mia with her basket... but by evening she had discovered all of her goodies and loved it all! We went to church and reflected on Christ's sacrifice so that we can all live again someday! We had a delicious Easter Dinner together before we packed up and headed home. It was a beautiful weekend filled with family, fun, candy galore and so much love!

I love her bow headband, just the cutest. I love that big smile of hers too! Couldn't get any cuter. The jumping video you posted on instagram was the sweetest thing too. My husband was super confused where the nose was coming from when I watched it too. baby giggles are the best.
