Easter 2010!

Easter this year was a blast! The girls had more Easter eggs to hunt than their baskets could hold! I also carried on my family's tradition of saving dozens of egg and filling them with confetti, called cascarones in Spanish. They are a Mexican tradition that my side of the family does every Easter and this year I made 4 dozen and we all had a blast breaking them over each others heads!!!

This year we decided to also fill all the plastic eggs with stickers instead of candy. And I know what you are thinking that I am no fun and the kids should have candy on Easter and I agree with that... I went out twice before Easter and bought candy and proceeded to eat it all myself... oops... bad Mommy! No, the girls did eat a ton of candy with me before Easter and I just thought it was enough...






P.S. We did get family photos taken on the 5Th so be looking out for those!

Cascarones are so much fun!! That last picture is by far my favorite. :D Looks like everyone had a great Easter.

I've never made cascarones before - how do you make them?!!?

I'd say that the girls look cute--and they certainly do--but they also look intense. "Where are those Easter eggs?!" =) I wish I could have been there to see it, and I can't wait until yall are back in Texas. 112 degree weather, here you come!--R

We made cascarones, too! I love the pics of the girls getting their brother and the Cutest Boy in the Universe covered in confetti. Adorable!
