Easter 2012!

We had such a blessed Easter.  It started with my mom coming for a visit, followed by egg hunts, family dinners and celebrating Jesus, risen from the dead.
"He is not here, for He is risen, just as He said.  Come and see the place where the Lord lay."  Matthew 28:6

Cayla, Autumn, Mark and Luke post egg-hunting

Chuck, hanging out with the kids while they open their eggs and count their findings.  He was hoping for a stray jelly bean or a loose swedish fish.  He's not picky!

Kelly, Katy and LisaDawn - Yes, they dyed eggs too!

Lisa, with her selection of colorful eggs.  Do you like the candy corn apron?  We're into mixing holidays around here!
Luke and Cayla took their egg dyeing seriously!

Just a few of the nearly 10 dozen eggs we dyed!

Quick pic of the girls' Easter baskets.  Angry birds and the risen Savior....yeah, there's no connection.

Love all the eggs! I don't think we are going to dye any this year.:( Maybe next year. It wouldn't be as much fun as you all had anyway!

This looked like SO much fun!! I have always loved dying eggs the best, and wish I could have been there. What's a few more dozen when your already doing 10;) Glad you share pics of my fam, otherwise I would never see them!
