Easter 2016

A few days before Easter we dyed our eggs.  It was a beautiful night and I was thrilled that we could go outside and keep the mess there.  We ended up with some great eggs and pink fingers.

On Easter morning the girls got new matching church shoes and a bubble machine from the Easter bunny.  We had a yummy breakfast then headed off to church.  Chad and Kylie came home early from church to make sure the Easter bunny came back to hide eggs in the backyard while we were gone.  Jillian was very worried that Chad and Kylie would get excited and start finding the eggs so she rushed us out the door as soon as church ended.  The girls were pretty great egg finders; it was the first time in many years we didn't have anyone stop midway through to start inhaling chocolate.

We spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing and making dinner.  We all laughed pretty hard when Jillian unintentionally leaned on and smashed the rising rolls.  It was fun to have our first big holiday dinner in our own home and use our fancy china and eat in the dining room.  That night we did our Resurrection Eggs together and it was nice to end our day focusing on the Savior.

A couple days later we tried out our bubble machine and it was a big win for the Easter Bunny.
