I love Easter! The true meaning, the spring season, the deviled eggs, the excessive candy...it's great. This year was one for the record books.Saturday we went to our ward's awesome Easter party. We actually got a whole family shot with the famous bunny."I like your bow."--PaisleyHeading out for the hunt. Finn didn't quite understand the urgency with the older kids coming up quickly and needed some prodding.Galla had no problem running to the hunt, but wanted to stop and eat the candy in each plastic egg after picking it up instead of the smarter stategy of gathering then eating.Heading back hand-in-hand.Easter Sunday we went to Modesto after church. Galla is so energetic!This is how Finn prefers to wear his sunglasses. Not only are they upside-down, but notice the ear placement. He looks so goofy in this picture it cracks me up!As we were leaving outside my parents' house, this dog made his appearance. He is definitely pink and blue and we have no idea where he came from. But he was a good doggy and Galla was sure he was another Easter surprise for her.So here's where the title of the post is explained. This year I got the kids buckets instead of baskets. As I was buying them the thought crossed my mind that it's like the buckets are used on Easter morn for candy and then re-used in the days following for catching puke when the kids make themselves sick off of that very candy. Let me tell you, that concept was more entertaining as my thought than as my reality. I don't think the candy was actually the culprit because Brad and I also had our sick bouts, but those buckets came in handy. Enough said.Here's the sad scene two days post-Easter. Mmmmm...smoothie!
