Easter 2010

We had a fun Easter holiday this year and kicked off the week with some egg dying for Family Home Evening.

Sophie did great with hers, even if she was a little impatient and didn't leave the eggs in the dye for very long. But she enjoyed putting the faces on and eating them after, of course.

Avery, also known as The Destroyer around here, wasn't quite so successful. She enjoyed knocking over the orange dye and smashing eggs to actually dying them. We had our hands full keeping her out of trouble around all that stuff, and we're really hoping that by next year she'll have grown out of her destructive phase.

The day before Easter I took the girls up to my Aunt Ginger's house again for an Easter egg hunt with several of her cute grandkids. Sophie remembered it from last year and was very excited to go find her 10 eggs.

We got Avery all pumped up and ready to hunt, too, by spending time hiding eggs in the living room and having her find those for practice. By the time it was the real deal she was quite the pro and did a great job.

Sophie had to climb a bit to find some, but she filled her basket quickly.

Avery found about 6 and then saw the sand box in the play ground and was no longer interested in hunting for eggs.

This is her kind of heaven and she would've been happy staying here all day. We had a fun Easter and Sophie especially liked finding "The Princess and the Frog" in her Easter basket this year. I think she's watched it 3 or 4 times since. Happy Easter!

Sawyer had more fun opening and closing the eggs then he did "hunting"
them. I love the pic in the previous post of the three of y'all at the farm. Sophie is getting so big! If you moved to GA, you could have a nice big garden....hint, hint!
Love you!
