Easter weekend

Easter snuck up on us this year, especially since we went to Hawaii the week before. It's a good thing I got all ready before we left because that really helped. We dyed eggs Saturday morning. 

Chloe loved dying eggs so much she has asked me a few times since then how much longer before we get to do it again. 

Class Levi face/move!

It was fun to add our bunny to the Easter pictures. 

Here is a samping of their eggs. Tyler made the 4 elements from Avatar, and Dallin made a sick one from his cracked egg (bottom right). It's always fun to see what they come up with!

With morning church, we had to get up a little early to make sure we had time for baskets. The Easter Bunny's wonderful teenage son made all the clues again this year, and they were super clever!

I love the big tree next to our new dining room. It's so much more pleasant to look at than our neighbor's house. 

Everyone got coloring books and colored pencils in their basket. 

It's fun to have a wide angle camera lens again, especially with such a beautiful background. We love our new kitchen!

When his package of peeps were gone (it didn't take long!), Spencer went out the next day and bought a bunch on clearance. He's a huge fan of peeps!!

Chloe got this adorable crocheted bunny in her basket. She named it Pinkalicious. It's so cute!

We didn't have time for pictures in the morning, but I managed to get one right after church before everyone changed.

I got the great idea of putting a bow tie on Gus Gus, but he was not impressed. He immediately tried to claw it off every time we managed to get it on. We finally got a couple of pics before he realized he was wearing it.

Spencer and Tyler hid the eggs for the Easter egg hunt, and the little kids told them not to do it too easy. It was NOT too easy!  

They said it's way more fun to watch the kids enjoy the egg hunt than to find the eggs themselves. They're growing up!

 It took awhile, but I think they found all the eggs. They even found a couple from last year!
Then Dallin, Brennan and Levi hid eggs for Spencer and Tyler to find. They were hard too! We had my whole family over for Easter dinner and to celebrate my birthday.
