Somebunny is having a very happy (and very, very adorable) Easter.

Mariah Carey accessorized for the occasion in a series of family photos she shared Sunday on Twitter.

Celebrating with husband Nick Cannon and 2½-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan, Carey rocked a festive headband (which matched Monroe’s own bunny ears).

“Easter bunny? Are you coming???” she captions a mommy-daughter snapshot.

The weekend festivities continued with plenty of Easter egg crafts and, of course, a hunt for goodies.

“Such a beautiful day! #happyeaster,” Cannon shares on Instagram.

Glen Campbell Moved to a Care Facility for His Own Safety, Says Family

04/20/2014 at 01:00 PM EDT

After a constant juggling of shifts to keep an eye on Glen Campbell around the clock, his family made the decision to move him into a memory care facility in Nashville.

The transition, they tell PEOPLE, was in the best interest of the “Rhinestone Cowboy” singer, who has been living with Alzheimer’s for over three years.

“There were five of us taking care of him and we were all completely exhausted,” Campbell’s fourth wife, Kim Woolen, who stars in the documentary Glen Campbell … I’ll Be Me, which follows the family as they deal with different stages of the disease, tells PEOPLE.

“No one was getting any sleep and we were just struggling every second to keep him safe – we felt like it wasn’t safe anymore.”

Although Campbell is living at the facility full-time, he is able to leave any time his support circle – including Kim, his daughter Ashley and son Shannon – take him out. Recently, they brought him back to their house for a family dinner.

However, from the moment he walks through the door, Campbell poses a threat to himself and the dangerous reality of having him home becomes obvious, his wife says.

“You have to watch him every single second. He’s up all hours of the night and wanders,” Kim says. “He’ll pick up knives and sometimes he won’t want to relinquish it.”

“[It can be dangerous] with all the household appliances and dish soap liquid and olive oil. He’ll drink anything … if you lose concentration for a second, he could hurt himself,” Ashley, who wrote the song “Remembering” for the documentary, adds.

Campbell, who moved into the facility at the end of March, has settled into his new surroundings nicely, spending his days playing games, gardening and participating in the scheduled programs.

“He’s made friends there. Everybody loves him there. It’s a beautiful setting, it’s very secure,” Kim says.

And while Campbell struggles to remember some things, he has never forgotten his love of music.

“He plays guitar there. He’s got this little guitar … he picked it up and stood up in the living area in front of some of the residents and he played a couple songs,” Kim recalls of his first day there. “Then he thanked them all for coming. Then he went over and laid down on the sofa and took a nap. It was so sweet.”

Couple Married 70 Years Die 15 Hours Apart

An Ohio couple who held hands at breakfast every morning even after 70 years of marriage have died 15 hours apart.

Helen Felumlee, of Nashport, died at 92 on April 12. Her husband, 91-year-old Kenneth Felumlee, died the next morning.

The couple’s eight children say the two had been inseparable since meeting as teenagers, once sharing the bottom of a bunk bed on a ferry rather than sleeping one night apart, the Zanesville Times Recorder reports.

They remained deeply in love until the very end, even eating breakfast together while holding hands, said their daughter, Linda Cody.

“We knew when one went, the other was going to go,” she said.

According to Cody, about 12 hours after Helen died, Kenneth looked at his children and said, “Mom’s dead.” He quickly began to fade and was surrounded by 24 of his closest family members and friends when he died the next morning.

“He was ready,” Cody said. “He just didn’t want to leave her here by herself.”

Son Dick Felumlee said his parents died of old age, surrounded by family.

“At Dad’s bed we were singing his favorite hymns, reading scriptures and praying with him,” he told The Associated Press in an email. “It was a going away party, and we know he loved it.”

The pair had known each other for several years when they eloped in Newport, Ky., across the Ohio River from Cincinnati, on Feb. 20, 1944. At two days shy of his 21st birthday, Kenneth – who went by Kenny – was too young to marry in Ohio.

“He couldn’t wait,” son Jim Felumlee said.

Kenneth worked as a railroad car inspector and mechanic before becoming a mail carrier for the Nashport Post Office. He was active in his Nashport-Irville United Methodist Church as a Sunday school teacher.

Helen stayed at home, not only cooking and cleaning for her own family but also for other families in need in the area. She taught Sunday school, too, but was known more for her greeting card ministry, sending cards for birthdays, sympathy and the holidays to everyone in her community, each with a personal note inside.

“She kept Hallmark in business,” daughter-in-law Debbie Felumlee joked.
