Easter Fun!

Our Easter weekend was a busy one, but spent with LOTS of family and friends!

Started off with a trip to the Schnitzelbank in Jasper for the Friday night seafood buffet that they only have during Lent. Paisley was so excited to ride with Uncle Drew, Aunt Lisa, Ashley, Abbi, Nana, Pop, Momma, and Dada all in the same van! Great evening!
 Their coordinating outfits I promise were not planned!

Of course it rained from about 9:30-11:00...just enough to cause the egg hunt to be held inside at church this year. It all worked out perfectly though and was a great morning!

Paisley was SO excited that Christian and Autumn joined us for the Easter egg hunt at church too! Nana came to watch also. Great time!

Off to Kelly Elbert's bridal shower. It was a very nice shower and Paisley and I loved getting to spend some time with the Wininger family. Lots of babies there...Paisley seemed a little interested. ;)

Time to dye Easter eggs!!!! I boiled them earlier before the bridal shower so they were ready to go!

We grilled out for the first time this spring. Paisley and I were the helpers!

Paisley did surprisingly well with the egg dyeing process. I would not allow her to wear clothes, hence the Elmo panties and nothing else. :) She had so much fun seeing all the colors appear. We loved every second of it! The cups were a great distraction while we patiently waited for each batch of eggs to "get pretty." Knocking them over was way more fun than the great towers Dada built!

Nana and Pop came to deliver Paisley's Easter goodies from them. Some great new summer outfits, a movie, book, hopping/singing bunny, and some little lambs. 

Eggs are finished!

Jordan and Michelle (Uncle and Bruff) came to our house after church to bring Paisley more Easter gifts! An adorable summer dress and "The Tickle Book" complete with tickle hands. She LOVES it!


Ethan was starting to get excited about finding those eggs!

Jake was soooo excited with his egg collection! Yes Jake, I think you were the winner!!!

Mom's brunch was wonderful of course, even with all 22 people there! Fabulous to have that many family members all together for Easter!

On to the Jones' for supper. Great ending to the day!

Snuggling with Uncle Kink (Lincoln) after a nice long bath, and almost ready for bed.

We are so very blessed to have all of our family living so close to us. I love this for Paisley and I know we will be even more thankful for this once our little boy joins our family. "Hoppy" Easter!
