It's Been Awhile....

The Crew during Grandpa's lesson.

Pa, my brother-in-law, rescuing all the sticky reptiles that came in the Easter eggs.  All of the kids were throwing them against the house.

Hanging out...

Ema was sharing an egg with Jake, he didn't quite get to them fast enough. :)
Ready for hunting!!!  (Jake, Gracie, Ema and Lily)

It's been about 5 or 6 months since my entire family has been together....and at least 3 or 4 years since we've had Easter somewhere other than home. What a great time it was to spend the day with my family. I miss hanging out with my sisters and it's always good to give the in-laws a little crap. :) And my brother, well, I hardly ever see him and his family, so it was a treat!

My mom, of course, prepared some wonderful food. Can't forget dessert...mmm. Thanks Mom. And the Easter egg hunt for the kids...there were about 100 eggs to find so that kept them busy for awhile, along with searching for everything inside the eggs. 

My Dad then reigned us all in for the real reason we celebrate and remember this day. Thanks Dad for being such a good example. 

And to the rest of my family, there are so many reasons that I love each of you...but the best reason, it's always a good time!!  My family is HILARIOUS!
