Cadence's Bday Party!

So those Easter bunny cookies are what we had wrapped there in the green box with pink tissue paper. They were party favors along with the "carrots" (cheetos in an icing bag tied with a green ribbon), and a fruit roll up with the Easter egg cup. I had little things of playdough, but didn't have time to get them out and together!

My mom and MIL helped me get ready with cooking and cleaning and watching the kids so I could cook and clean! Here is the table before all the kids hit it. And Cadence standing there while they sing Happy Birthday to her. Smile I guess it was a little untraditional, but we did birthday cake/ice cream first while the guys hid the eggs outside.

Then we ushered everybody out for the egg hunt. We had almost 300 eggs filled with candy, but could have used 300 more! I had no idea three year olds would be so good at finding eggs!! Here are C & E before the hunt and getting in on the action:

Then we counted eggs, gave the surprise for the most eggs/least eggs, and then we opened presents outside...I just didn't feel like ushering everybody inside again:

Here are my three after everbody but cousin N (top left with black eye!) went home:

And one more...Cadence last year and Cadence this year...can't believe how much she's grown!

I can't believe how fast the past three years have gone!

Thanks for looking!

Ditto what everyone else says - I'm tired just thinking of holding a party, lol - plus I love that quilt the kids are sitting on! Gee, we didn't have any guests for Anna, lol, and I haven't even THOUGHT about Easter yet! You have much nicer weather than us...we are still wearing toques here, lol!

Gorgeous pictures, I also love the before and after. Gotta get my butt in gear and put up pics from Anna's birthday...

I loved looking at all of these! I can't believe how much Cady Mae has changed in a year - she's grown so much! *sniff* Looks like a wonderful party and I LOVE your kitchen, too. Biggrin Looks like lots of countertop space, which i'm jealous of. lol

Colleen, I did get a new camera at Christmas. The ILs get us one "big" gift every year and that was it this year.

First bolded - I am STILL tired! Second bolded - dh's grandma gave us that quilt as a wedding gift. She patched the quilt and quilted the top of it by hand, but had it backed by someone else (she was 92 when we got married). I also love it. I actually keep it in our den over the fireplace all the time to cover the brick. I could use another quilt, but I like to see that one. Smile

Yes, she doesn't even look like a little toddler to me anymore. Sad
And you like the 1950's kitchen...nice! Lol. Painted white cabinets, countertops and floors.....IMPOSSIBLE to keep the floors clean.

Anyway, thanks for the nice words. I had a lot of fun planning it. I had so many good ideas from blogland for Easter party ideas...it was fun!
