Easter

Easter was so fun this year! It felt like our first easter with the girls. Even though they were here last easter, I wasn't completely here and all I actually remember was driving up to my mom and dad's house and not having any dresses they could fit into. :0

This year I made sure to get going on all the traditions. Of course we went up to grandma Lewis' for the annual Easter egg hunt! We did it a bit early so that the Franks could participate before moving to California.
 All the kiddos waiting for their sugar high...
 The babies were released first into the backyard, as you can see we didn't want the egg hunting to be too much of a challenge for them, they were pretty visible. ;)
 All the kids were mad that Claire was down there, she was just helping the babies though.
 Then the big kids lined up according to age and were released into the wild.
 Once the big cousins were hunting the girls became observers and started at everyone running around like mad.
 Counting their loot.
 The girls stealing candy from their cousins.
 They kept trying to bite through wrappers, babies have so much to learn.
 Hi there little Lyla
 It was such a nice day we went for a little walk
 And we checked out grandpa's new car, which grandma is certain is part of some sort of midlife crisis.
 I was shocked that they could still wear the little outfits I put them in last Easter...
 Remember when they were little? They've grown a ton, but they haven't grown out of very many clothes, I guess everything just used to be huge on them!
 My mom and dad came over and helped us in our yard a bit on Easter weekend, always so thoughtful.
 This year I'm totally back into the swing of things, I dyed eggs- which I discovered is kinda lonely to do by yourself- hopefully the girls will at least want to watch next year? Anyways, we had some yummy deviled eggs and egg salad sandwiches out of these.
I made some baskets for the girls which turned out jut how I wanted them, and the easter bunny even filled them with some goodies.
 On Easter morning we had another little egg hunt in the front yard for the girls.
 They got pretty into it!
I think they like Easter.
 WHAT? There's treats inside the egg?
I filled some of the eggs with crackers and cereal so that they didn't get too much candy, they are just babies after all. But when they'd eat the peanut butter eggs it was my favorite, they'd kinda foam at the mouth blue or white from the candy shell...
 eggs!
 Aw, shoot, thought this one had chocolate...

I had to teach relief society, on EASTER, and it was FAST SUNDAY! Ugh. I figured most people accidentally ate some of their kids easter basket treats already so I made treats anyway.
 Easter bunny hooked them up, then after church we headed to the Hagens for dinner.
We visited temple square the week before Easter so I wouldn't stress about pictures the day of when I had to teach a lesson too. I spotted this giant basket at the in-laws, which seemed perfect for Easter pics!
 I love temple square in the spring.
 Little bunny babies!

Melinda and her kids came too, Bella happened to coordinate nicely with the girls. ;)
 Pretty girls walking around the temple
 I was glad they figured out how to walk in shoes by Easter.

 We had a nice Easter, hope you did too!
