Easter Weekend

Easter weekend was a busy one for us with lots of fun activities.We kicked it off by dying eggs. This was Sophie's first experience dying eggs and it was a huge hit as you can see by her purple hands. She had to put each egg into each color multiple times and it definitely made the end result interesting! I believe this was also her first time eating a hard boiled egg. One and a half of them later I think she was a fan.

Avery helped inspire the faces we added to the eggs at the end. Actually, she's way too sweet to do that, but we did like the final look of our 6 little eggs.

I got to co-host an Easter party for our MOMS Club that turned out to be a lot of fun. We made bunny ears and did face painting and played Pin the Tail on the Bunny and had bunny races and good food.

We ended with an Easter egg hunt outside and were grateful the rain held off until we could return indoors with our treasures.

It took Sophie a few moments to figure out that if she immediately sits down and opens the first egg she finds, there won't be any left to get. So she eventually ended up with her 6 and had lots of fun discovering the toys inside.

For some reason we have a ton of girls in this group. Those 3 boys held their own just fine, though.

Avery is always happy. I love it! She has a quick smile for everyone and is just fun to be around.

We had yet another Easter egg hunt the next day at my aunt and uncle's house who live about an hour from here. Sophie and Austin joined their second cousins and had a great time.

This time Sophie didn't mess around at all. She knew exactly what she had to do to find the most number of eggs and she went right to it.

Her basket was filled to the brim by the end and she was in heaven with all that candy (and fortunately didn't notice when I gave about half of it away.)

Even Avery got into the hunt this time. She just loves to crawl, no matter what it's after.

It was cold up in the mountains! It didn't feel at all like Southern California, even though it was! I'm definitely glad we live where we do even though it was very beautiful in Wrightwood.

Here are the girls in their Easter finery. They were adorable all matchy-matchy. I love getting to see them all dolled up, especially when Sophie actually lets me put a bow in her hair for 10 seconds while I snap the picture.

Love this girl!

Love both these girls! They make life so much fun and we are so blessed.

Isn't Easter fun! I love those dresses! I saw them at Target and wanted to get one for Hannah but she still was a little too small. But your girls look so pretty! Miss you!
