Happy Easter

Though it's hard to tell from the pictures, we really do stress that Easter is about Jesus' resurrection. The candy in the eggs are just an added bonus...

This was the first year Kate has been able to participate in the Easter Egg hunt after church. The only thing in her eggs was gold fish and Cheerios, but you would have thought she'd discovered gold by her excitement over her goodies.

Padyn was a bit pickier this year. She only went for the pink or purple eggs. That was a terribly limiting strategy, therefore she only ended up with 5. I wasn't upset about it...5 plastic eggs is plenty of candy. And she didn't seem to notice that all the other preschoolers had about 20 eggs in their baskets. Hopefully that will last at least another year. (The green ones in her basket below are actually from Kate's basket.)

Fortunately, not much jealously ensued over the difference in egg fillings. Padyn did manage to share some of her jelly beans with Kate, so we are all good.Happy Resurrection Day.

I love your pictures. I'm still sifting through all of mine. Wasn't it fun watching Kate pick up eggs? I thought Avery was hilarious. Your girls are beautiful!

Love the dresses!! Girl's clothes are so much fun around the holidays. And I love the fact that Padyn only picked up pink or purple eggs. Good for her for being choosy rather than greedy...very rare for someone her age! Thanks for the great photos.
