Texas Style Easter Party

On Thursday, Janie held an Easter Egg hunt/party for the girls and some of their friends. There were probably 30-40 people who were there (kids and parents). First, we ate a yummy spaghetti dinner. Following that was a super fun Easter egg hunt in a big yard with lots of trees and places for the eggs to be hid.

But the coolest part of the party was the giant Texas Easter Bunny who made a visit. Cooper didn't quite know what to think of it!!!
Cadence stayed a distance from it and said she was scared of it until the bunny left. Then she said, "That Easter bunny was cool." As a Texan would say, "Everything is bigger and better in Texas" including the Easter bunny!!!
As usual, the girls' baskets were loaded with eggs and candy!
One of the extremely fun aspects of many of the eggs Cadence found was the confetti that filled them. By the end of the evening, almost everyone had confetti in their hair. It was everywhere in the house and yard. The kids found much enjoyment from cracking the eggs on people and spreading the confetti!!!

Cadence even got confetti in Nana's hair!
After the Easter Egg Hunt, the pinata was hung from a tree! All the kids got a turn smacking it with a stick! Cooper needed a little help!
This was Cadence's first pinata. She thought it was quite cool! When she hit it, it barely moved! She is just so gentle!
After one of the adults smashed the pinata, the candy tumbled out and the kids filled their bags. At this age, Cadence really would have been happy with 2 or 3 pieces of candy. The excitement is just in trying new things!
Easter parties in Texas rock!
