Easter Traditions

My family didn't have a lot of traditions growing up. I mean, we ALWAYS got together for Christmas Eve at my grandma's house, but other than that we kind of just winged things as they came. It's been fun since I get married, sharing in all of the Oberg traditions. Every year I look forward to Easter at Darin's parents. We color eggs prior to Easter (even before there were any kids in the family) and then Easter morning we do an egg/basket hunt, followed by a delicious brunch.

It's fun. All of us grown adults run frantically around the house and yard trying to be the first to find all our eggs. It usually ends in all of us whining and Darin's Mom helping us find the last remaining eggs. It makes me feel like a kid again. I love it. And now that we have kids in the family (Mollee 3, Nora 4 months, and Logan 2 months) it's even more fun. Mollee helped the adults find their eggs after she found all her own.

I love traditions. It gives you something to look forward to every year.
Nora's new favorite thing to do is lift her head up off the ground like she's doing a crunch. She wants to sit up so bad but just doesn't quite have the coordination yet. She also just found her toes. She loves grabbing and playing with them.
One more picture from our Easter shoot. I love my little bunny

I'm with you, I LOVE traditions! Maybe because they are so much fun to look forward to. What a fun Oberg Easter Tradition! Seriously, I love anything that makes me feel like a kid again. Glad you had such a great time!
