easter 2013

Oh man do they make them any cuter?

We had a great Easter this year filled with cookie decorating at Grandma Turnbow's house, dying Easter eggs, Easter baskets and of course the annual Easter egg hunt at Grandma & Grandpa's house.

Kash loved every minute of it and was very excited for Easter this year.  The weeks leading up to it he watch our home videos from Easter last year and he was ready to go on the egg hunt with ALL of his cousins.  Sadly the Frandsen girls couldn't make it this year and he was really disappointed.

For family home evening we focused on the resurrection all month.  I was amazed at how much Kash learned from the simple lessons we planned.  As we were driving past a Catholic church that has three large crosses in front Kash said, "look mom that's where Jesus died!  And now he lives."

And as for Nixon's first Easter, he loved it!! He loved rolling around and eating all of the plastic eggs and thoroughly enjoyed being outside for the Easter egg hunt--he loves being outside!

Kash loves going to Grandma's house and now it's an added bonus when Kitt is there!  And per usual plenty of sugar was consumed in the making of these cookies. 

Dying eggs this year was extra entertaining with Kieden.  This kid LOVES!!! eggs.  Well I guess he loves to crack them.  It was so fun to watch him splash the eggs in all of the mugs, use his hands to scoop them out of the dye and of course a lot of cracking went on!

Kash came into our room Easter morning and Blaine told him he thought the Easter Bunny had come.  Kash said, "Nah, not today Dad" and jumped into our bed. haha.  When we finally convinced him to check and see he was very excited and surprised to find eggs hiding everywhere and a basket full of treats.  Nix enjoyed watching Kash run around and playing with all the empty eggs Kash was leaving behind. 

And finally the moment Kash had been waiting for, the Easter Egg Hunt.  I think it lived up to his expectations :)  Grandma and Grandpa had about a million extra eggs lying around the yard which of course Kieden loved!

So as you could see we had a great Easter!  Every year after Easter I always find myself saying it's my 2nd favorite holiday.
