The "easter bunny" was quite creative with where she hid the eggs. Abby was fasinated with the "purple snow" - Ethan had to point out that it was an egg making the snow look purple (needless to say - those jelly beans were a bit damp and got thrown out).
I didn't get a great shot of Ethan - but he was great at helping point out the eggs to Abby.
Miles found all the eggs on the rock wall.
The twins even joined in the fun - they figured out how to open the eggs before their mom figured out that they did. Paige had a mouthful of jelly beans before I noticed and you should have heard her scream when I took them away. Piper just liked the noise the eggs made when she threw them.
Here we are decorating the eggs - we did 3 dozen. This is the only picture I got because shortly after this shot - Ethan fell off his chair and took the green dye with him. I dumped him in the bathtub and then scrubbed the floor, soaked his clothes and bleached the grout. The only evidence of the disaster was a greenish tint to Ethan's face for a couple days - I tried to have him soak his face, but he got tired of holding his breath. We still had fun and even finished the eggs - we only had one green egg this year though.
Since Easter was the same weekend as conference, we didn't get dressed up on Easter - but here is Abby in her Easter dress the next weekend. Grandma Gilmore sent us this dress along with two of the most beautiful dresses I have ever seen for the twins. I am saving their dresses for this summer (hopefully they will be walking then and not pull out the seams crawling like they seem to be doing with quite a few dresses right now) - so look for those dresses around their birthday. Abby calls this her "princess dress" and I have to hide it during the week so it doesn't become a dress-up. These pictures don't do it justice - it is a pretty pale pink - Abby loves to twirl in it - those pictures turned out to blurry to post though
