The Easter Egg Hunt and Our Spring Display

This past weekend was our annual neighborhood egg hunt.  The same family every year stuffs 500-800 eggs and puts them out in one of the common areas for the all the kids to have at it. Needless to say, the kids LOVE it!  The bunny hops three times and they're off and running!
Tom Thumb and Red had quite a haul!

Here's Red with two of her best friends at the hunt.
Then the kids visited with the Easter Bunny.
When we got home, we dumped all the candy out of the eggs into a bowl that's now on top of the fridge (otherwise it would be gone by now---guaranteed).  Then, we put Christmas ornament hooks through the top of all the plastic eggs that had holes in them intending to hang them on the tree in our front yard.  It was really windy that day so instead the kids decorated the vase of pussy willows my mom brought by last week and displayed all their other spring treasures.
I got motivated and made a new wreath for the front door out of a $12 twig wreath from Joann (I used a 40% coupon so I got it for a little over $7) and 3 forsythia sprays that I cut up (got those for about $4).  I like it.  It says spring to me. :-)

Now if spring would only come...
