Easter in Chicago 2015

I decided last week I didn't want to take the girls to an Easter egg hunt with the other billion children in Chicago so we hosted one ourselves today with their friends from church. We had a great turnout and it was super yummy and fun. Here are some pictures:

This is before everyone showed up with the rest of the food. We had SOOO much! The decorations are now down and put away which is record time for me but I miss them already.

After eating and playing inside we headed outside for an egg hunt!

Even though it snowed twice this week (one of which was yesterday) it all melted and the ground was clear and dry! Prayers answered!

The 17 (!!) children who hunted for eggs had to hunt for eggs with a specific number, making it fun and non stressful for the littles who normally wouldn't get any eggs.

I told the girls they could have 2 eggs today and the rest another day.

I think they had about 6 because I just couldn't say no one more time (they asked a bazillion times for more).

But kids are only kids for a short time (and we made sure to brush their teeth extra long tonight).

Love this girl!

She was so happy to have her OWN basket with her OWN eggs.

And this girl found all her eggs on her own! She getting much too big!

After Wendy woke up from her nap they opened all their eggs and traded/counted/sorted their treasure. Jane gave Wendy her stickers for nothing in return and Wendy was so delighted she almost squealed. It was so fun listening to and watching them do this. Oh, to be a child again.

Next weekend we'll do this again in Utah! Can't wait!
