Phew! Hannah can hunt eggs with the best of them after this weekend of fun! In the end she had 4 egg hunts so she is officially a pro!
Here she is in action at home on Monday morning.
This pic (although poorly lit with the window behind her) is a nostalgic one. It is the last one of her hunting for Easter eggs with her high chair as the hiding place since I’ve recently sold her high chair. She hasn’t used it in over a month so it’s time to part with it. I’ll be honest in saying it’s tough. It’s one of the last ‘baby’ items she has and we’ve used it virtually every day since she came home. *sniff* This year her shoulders were at tray level.
In typical Catherine style, here are a couple of pics from 2011 and 2010 to show how she’s grown.

Where does the time go?
The Easter Bunny was well aware of how many egg hunts Hannah attended this weekend so he switched things up a bit at home which was just fine with her. Many of her eggs were filled with socks! We also have candy coated chocolates here in Canada called ‘Smarties’ which are much like M&M’s in the US. Around the 15 second mark you can hear that she still struggles with the ‘s’ sound on the front of some of her words. Oh how this makes me giggle when she corrects me! It reminds be a lot of this clip from the Big Bang Theory!
The umbrella was a hit as was the hula hoop. She can’t use the hoop properly yet but she has made up fun games using it and loves for Mommy to hold it while she jumps through it.
In the afternoon we headed to Grandma and Grandpa’s. This is one of those outfits that I love and it just kinda happened. She started out wearing her ‘nastics’ outfit then added the tutu skirt. From there we added the sweater and socks and I thought she looked absolutely adorable! It’s fun when outfits just kinda fall together like this.
And they’re off! The two little girls were given a head start hunting for eggs then the bigger kids joined them. It was such fun to watch everyone running around and yet also helping each other out too!

Most of Hannah’s cousins. 2 were missing from the pic but it’s still great to capture most of them here!
This is the end of our Easter 2012 posts. Hope you’ve enjoyed sharing in a bit of the fun we had this wonderful Easter season!
