Easter Weekend

What a wonderful weekend!! Easter egg hunts, Dyeing Eggs, Easter Baskets, New Easter Outfits...I think we managed to get it all in and had a great time enjoying family. For the sake of Brenda/Aaron, and Kendall/Leanna; I will post several pictures...we missed you guys!!!! For some reason, I forget to take pics. of the adults...I will work on that, my dad, mom, Jeff, Vicki, Dana, Mark...they were around also.

Saturday morning we went to a very chilly Easter egg hunt at Stockton. It was 25 that morning with wind. Mark said the wind chill must have been about 10 or 15. Sounds like we were a little crazy, but the kids did enjoy it and got some neat prizes!! Our kids were in three different age groups, in three different places. We were thankful to have Dana along so that they could all participate .Kaden wasn't real thrilled with the Easter Rabbit. But, you know the spill--"real quick, just for a picture..."

Saturday evening Khara, Kelsey, Andrew, Caleb, and Kaley had a blast dyeing eggs!! That is a wonderful memory I have of every Easter doing that with my family. Great fun for all ages!!!

Kaley watches as Kaden cracks and tries to peel another one of her eggs.

Some very creative eggs from Drew.

Ready to go to church. Kelsey is even armed with her snack bag of Easter candy. :-)

Excuse the glare. This will come as a real shock, but we were racing, again, to get to church on time. We just snapped a couple of pics real quick before going out the door.

Love your girls dresses! Kaden is very cute too! Since Jeff's family was with you, this is the first Sunday in a long time, that I didn't have Caleb run up to me yelling "Go Colts!". I'm a Bears fan and he won't let me live down the super bowl.

That is too funny!! Caleb is quite a character. Something is always going on in his brain. Lots of fun!!

I love the girls' matching Easter dresses. So pretty. You can proud of that great bunch of kids! Isn't it funny how spring disappeared just in time for Easter? Thankfully, Lauren and Michael got to go to a lovely hunt INSIDE the library! Nice and warm for me! :)

Kendall & Leanna said...

Thanks for the pictures. Wish we could have been there. :) Looks like you all had fun.

So glad you posted these pictures - I was anxious to see the girls' Easter dresses - which are adorable!! And I LOVE Kaden's outfit. I've got to take pictures of him in that before he out grows it. Wish we could have been there too!

Cute pics Jana. Our girls will never forget getting to dye Easter eggs and do an Easter egg hunt at your house...while we were on deputation. It meant soo much to them. Poor kids, this year, I had no way to get dye for eggs, and was sick on Easter so did not feel like making "natural dye", so they just colored their Colombian BROWN eggs with their markers. =)
Love y'all,
