Meet the Sullivans: Happy Easter 2011!

April 25, 2011

Happy Easter 2011!

We had a really nice Easter! We started the morning by doing our own little Easter egg hunt at our place. Keith is so wonderful, he packed up my basket full of magazines, granola bars, sugar free gum and chap stick (all the things I love the most). I on the other hand packed his with sugary sweets, most of which contained chocolate and peanut butter...next year I'll try to remember to be more healthy conscious! 

 We went to an early service with Keith's mom, sister Kelly and her family, sister Teri and her family and my mom and sister--needless to say, but we took up a whole pew! After mass we all headed over to Keith's mom's house for coffee and brunch. After having brunch some of the adults hid the Easter eggs for the egg hunt. We had to have the hunt inside this year because it was a cold rainy day here--but everyone still had a blast!

 Seven out of nine of our nieces and nephews right before the egg hunt!

There was some serious categorizing going on. Some eggs even hand dollar bills in them!

After brunch with the Sullivan clan we came home to prep some stuff to bring to my grandpa's for Easter dinner. 

 I made a pasta salad and these delicious and adorable cupcakes! I blogged about the recipe here.

The view from my grandpa's. He lives on a hill that over looks the peninsula, and you can even see across the bay on a clear day.

Beautiful spring blooms in the front yard! My grandma (who passed away 5 years ago) took great pride in her garden.

Happy Easter! Love, Colleen and Keith
