easter sunday


we had a wonderful time celebrating easter with our families yesterday!  in the morning, we woke up and led leko on a mini easter egg hunt around the house.  he was really thrilled to find that we hid some of his favorite kitty food in the easter eggs.  then we headed down to my parents' house for easter brunch.  everything was so yummy, my mom is such an amazing cook!  after brunch, we went on a easter present hunt that my parents put together for us.  it has been a tradition for years, and we love doing it.

we spent some time playing with my parents' three kitties, and then ryan's family joined us for easter dinner.  (i can't believe i forgot to take pictures at dinner, but i did manage to remember to take pictures of what ryan and i made for dessert!)

it was so nice to visit with our family yesterday.  there's nothing better than celebrating holidays with family!  after we came home last night, we gave leko his easter basket from my parents.  he really enjoyed playing with the little catnip squirrel that he got and he can't wait to try is new kitty food too!

We had such a great time also, It is so great getting together and eating. But of course I enjoy all the cooking and baking for the Holidays. Your desserts were delicious.
Good picture of you and Ryan by the daffodils.
Leko looks like he is hugging the red squirrel or was he trying to beat it up.
