Easter 2011

We had a great day at Travis' parents' house on Friday (pictures to come, my camera's batteries were dead). The Easter Bunny visited Em in Moulton and she got to hunt for eggs. She had a lot of fun playing with her Grandma and Grandpa.


Emma and I decided to dye eggs Saturday night. She decided to play with the dye tablets before she put them in the water...resulting in a red and a blue hand :) Em loved seeing the water in the cups change color and was even more excited when we pulled out the eggs and they were another color.
She carefully placed the eggs in her basket, along with the crunchiest carrots and crispiest lettuce she could find. We told her that the Easter Bunny would hide the eggs that we left for him.

Open wide :)

Easter morning...Em came into the hallway to discover that the carrots, lettuce, and eggs were replaced with Easter treats.

Bunny Bear was in her basket...she named him Fluffy.

We decided to hide the eggs inside b/c the sprinkler system watered the grass early Sunday morning and we thought that it may be too wet and a bit muddy for an egg hunt.

The Easter Bunny also brought Emma a painting book.
And stickers...

I was making some mashed potatoes and realized that Emma was a bit too quiet in her room. This is why...

She transferred all of the stickers to her right leg and toes.

We went to have lunch at my parents' house. We also had an egg hunt for the girls. Mia was really sweet and left many eggs on the ground for Emma to find.

Emma LOVED looking in the eggs to find her prize.

We had to bribe Emma with Jelly Beans to take a family picture. If you look closely, you can see the chewed up rainbow in her mouth :)

I love these girls!!! We are looking forward to Mia's little brother joining them in August!

I can't remember when we last had our picture taken as an entire family. We were surprised that we were able to get a picture with everybody looking and all eyes open :)

Precious pumpkin...worn out after a long day!

But not too tired to play dress up...

first as a cowgirl...

then as a princess. The girls pulled out Camie's old prom dresses for a fashion show.

Emma needed A LOT of clothes pins to hold that dress up.
