Easter Weekend

We had a great Easter Weekend. Khara rates it as one of her favorite holidays. :-) Aaron and Brenda were able to come down. Having extra family around always makes it even more special.

Karson turned one month old Saturday (can't hardly believe that) and so Brenda very graciously brought her equipment with her and did a photo shoot of him. Very anxiously waiting to get those proofs back!!

On Saturday morning we went to the local Easter egg hunt.
Kaden was in the 0-2 age group category. These little "hunters" were not very aggressive. It took them probably 20 minutes to get all the candy in their area picked us vs. less than 5 min. for Khara's age group, the 7-9 year olds.

Brenda went with Kelsey in her age group.

The three hunters with a little brother who never even got to peek out from under his blankets. :-) Easter weekend was pretty chilly this year.

Our Saturday evening tradition--dyeing eggs!!

Easter morning trying to snap a quick picture before heading out the door. It gets just a little harder to get a good group shot with each new addition.

On to the 2nd Easter egg hunt after the service at our church. The benefit of a country church with a Big yard to hide the candy in. One drawback, a neighbor dog joined the hunt and downed who knows how much of the wonderful chocolate. Couldn't say much to/about the dog. The family that owned him was visiting our church that Sunday. :-) (Oh, the dog happened to be named Hershey....hmmm)

Kelsey proudly displaying the dessert my mom made for our Sunday dinner. Delicious!!!

Kelsey beating up on Aaron~ Again!

Trying for one more picture after church. Kelsey with candy in her mouth, Kaden with it in hand.


One of the other things we did on Saturday was to go to a Home and Leisure show. One of the booths had a jar of jelly beans for the kids to guess how many were in it. They called yesterday and said that Khara was the winner with her guess of 303. There were actually 340 in the jar. Happy Girl !! :-)

Yum - I could use some of that dessert right now. That's so neat that Khara won the jar of jelly beans. I guess none of us guessed the right amount of bills in that other machine (bummer)!

Looks like you all had a great Easter. That dessert looks delicious. I'm ready for strawberry season. :)

Just wanted to say "Congratulations!" to you, Aunt Jana!

I loved seeing your pictures! The dog and the Easter egg hunt cracked me up! Hopefully with the big jar of jelly beans, you won't lack for any sugar of the dog might have consumed!
I loved the Easter family picture. You have a beautiful family, Jana!
