The Easter Bunny visited our kids 3 TIMES this year. Only Will believes in the Easter Bunny (Ashton and Matthew figured out the truth and told Katie and Calvin is too little to care about anything other than lots of candy.) But their unbelief didn't stop them from having multiple Easter celebrations.
Easter #1: Since Jeremy and I knew we were spending Easter in England we decided to have a family Easter celebration for Family Home Evening one Monday. While Jeremy and the kids finished up dinner, I assembled and hid the Easter baskets. Then we had them wait on the stairs until we said go and they could go search for their baskets. Notice how Calvin is already disgusting, but happy? He sneeked down early and ate a bunch of stuff from his basket.

Easter #2: The Saturday before we left, Cox cousins came down from Lehi, so we had an Easter egg hunt that day.

|Calvin was a little guy last Easter so this is the first time he could really participate in an Easter egg hunt|
|After the party we had to go to the farm so the boys could ride the new Kubota|
|Calvin was having so much fun exploring the farm.|
Hopefully, they don't think that this is the norm and except so much from Easter next year! Needless to say they were some happy kids!
