The Easter Bunny made his annual visit to the house, consumed some carrots, and left copious amounts of candy behind as payment. He’s tricky, though – he hides the candy, presumably to occupy us for long enough for him to escape before we discover the missing carrots. Foiled again!
You can spot plenty of candy just in this picture
Kyle looks like he’s up to no good in that last picture. Better not let the Easter Bunny see that face!
Barely contained excitement
Time to measure something!
LOOK KAYWOL! CANDY!!!
LOOK KAYWOL! MORE CANDY!!!!
Any more in there?
I AM IRON MAN!
Homemade chicken pot pie for dinner. I used cookie cutters to cut out the puff pastry.
Time to decorate cookies!
Grandpa Paul, Grandma Trudy, Katie, Zach and Grandma also came to visit:

I discovered this in an office building in downtown Chicago. She is one of about four or five of these half woman, half tree beasts.
This year Kyle went as Superman, and Ian decided to wear Kyle’s pirate costume from a couple of years ago. They both had parties at school, including parades, then came home to begin the Trick-or-Treating. Later that night Katra and I went out and terrorized some neighbors with our vampire costumes.
