Belated Easter Photos

Going through my photos today I realised that we forgot to share about Matt's Easter experience. This was the first year Matt REALLY got into it. My mom was very creative - turning the traditional Easter Egg hunt into a special treat for Matt. She wrapped Matt's favourite chips - Simba puffs - in yellow paper, tied with a yellow pipe cleaner. Whilst Matt had his nap we hung up these yellow surprises all around our garden.

After we helped Matt find the first yellow "egg" and unwrap it he quickly got the idea. It was great that he could have the immediate satisfaction of unwrapping the paper and eating the tasty snack. Soon he was unstoppable...

Oh the joy!

Great exercise for those small fingers to unwrap the paper!

Reaching high and low to find the "eggs"

And not minding to share with his grandpa!

And we then there was the Easter bunny. Matt was unsure about this thing - as he had not yet associated it with chocolate. Next year will most likely be different.

I haven't had a chance to check your blog recently. My goodness, look how little Matt is growing!!! I still can't get over how darling he is. :-)

Know that you and your family continue to be in my prayers.
