Easter 2012

 Right after we left Salt Lake
and ate breakfast at Ruth's Diner then we headed 
to my Mom's where all my family was BBQing
and dyeing Easter eggs.
 Quite the crowd.
We missed the HUGE Easter egg hunt at GG's
house.  My Aunt Shelly hosts it and she goes
all out! There are more eggs than you can
imagine.  Eggs, candy and prizes for all.
\
 Let the creativity begin!
We all get pretty competitive designing
our eggs.
 I missed my Ellie Belly so much!
 This is how Eme dyed her eggs,
just playing and not having anything to do with the eggs.
 Daddy helping Ellie.
 Easter is so much fun with our family.
I love all being together.
Levi and Ryker-roo
 Ryah!
 Who gave this girl a sharpie?
 We had an egg thief! 
 Jer!!
The perfectionist, making sure his eggs were just perfect.
 Later that night we had our own egg hunt with the girls.
We put glow sticks in the eggs and they glowed
in the yard.  The girls LOVED it!
 Ellie and Emery chomping at the bit
to get out the door.
 Right when the door opened they could
see them glowing all over the yard.
 We found some chicks too.
 Emery needed no help at all.
She knew exactly what to do.
 Ellie filling her basket.
 Along with the glowing eggs, each girl
also had a multi-color changing bunny to find.
The yard was just glowing with these lit up 
and all the eggs.
 Emery found her bunny!
 Look Dad!
 Dad hid them really good.
 Ellie got lucky.
 Going through their loot. 
 Easter morning 2012.
 "oooooh tute"
Emery telling me her ducky is "cute"
 Ellie with the lamby
{and ring pop in mouth}
New swimsuits.
And sisterly love on Easter.

I was sad this year to miss the annual Easter Egg Hunt
 at GG's house since we went on our little getaway.  
But my Mom had the girls and she took them
down.  She said Emery at first was opening each egg
and eating the candy inside, but pretty soon she
got a hang of it and was filling up her basket fast.
We did get to meet everyone for the BBQ and
egg dyeing though.  It is a fun tradition.  The egg
dyeing gets pretty competitive {from the adults}
and usually all the adults are left dyeing the eggs and
the kids are off running around, which is exactly what
happened this year.  Since we missed the egg hunt with
the girls we did out own little one, the glow sticks in the eggs
was a huge hit.  They both were squeeling running around
finding all the eggs.  In the morning Ellie said "I think the
Easter Bunny hid more eggs" She was super surprised
that the Easter Bunny left gifts, I think she thought that was
better than eggs :)
Happy Easter 2012
