Happy Easter!

We have been having a great Easter week! My parents and younger brother and sister were in town this past week and we've been celebrating with them non-stop :)
It all culminated Friday night when we had a grand Easter feast. We had ham, scalloped potatoes, carrot cake, green beans, and rolls. It was so yummy! It was also so fun to hang out and chat with the family. Even though I have a brother and sister in Provo it's hard to get together with everyone's school and work schedules being so crazy.

We had some yummy, yummy food!
 My cousin, Brandon, my brother Jordan and niece Annalise. Brandon lives in Draper and he came down for our "Easter" dinner. It was great to see him!

 Cam, my brother, Stevie and Will. They are all HUNKS!!
 Nick and baby Annalise! I love that I caught them both smiling!
 My baby sister Anne chose all the decorations to help make the D-Basement more festive!
 On Saturday morning before my Mommy and Daddy had to leave we had an Easter egg hunt and we died Easter eggs. 
This was Will's first Easter egg hunt. He didn't really understand the concept of finding the eggs but once he realized they had jelly bellies in the he started picking eggs up like crazy! 
I love his face in this picture. 
 Ella, our niece, is and egg hunt champion!
 My mommy, yes that is a dog in her shirt. My parents picked up a new puppy while in Utah. I think that makes 6 dogs for them. Oh and she LOVES jelly bellies but doesn't eat them much because they give her insane road rage, true story.
 All of Ella's eggs. I told you she was an egg hunt champion!
 Will broke an egg open before the hunt was over, he couldn't wait :)
Ella, Brooke and Nick searching for eggs.
 Yeah, there are not so many eggs in Will's bucket.
 He kept cracking the eggs open, dumping the jelly bellies in his bucket and chucking the eggs back on the grass.
 Ahhh, satisfaction!
 My sister, Brooke, bought Ella this hat a few weeks ago and I don't know if Ella's taken it off, well, maybe on Sunday. She sure is cute though.
 Anne was sweet enough to make sure Will got some more eggs.
 The end result. Note Will's hand in his bucket, getting more jelly bellies.
 Aren't they cute?
 One thing I love about dying Easter eggs is the beautiful, vibrant colors.

 My brother, Jordan and Annalise looking all suave. I'm not sure girls can look suave but whatever.
 Will and my daddy, his papa. Looking at this picture makes me cry. Will loves my dad and loves to sit by him, walk by him, and do anything with him when we see him.

 Our finished products, they are SO vibrant!

Saturday night I hurt my back and really couldn't move so Sunday was a quiet day at our house. We read an Easter book to Will and tried to explain why it is so important. I really enjoyed my Easter week with family.

Sounds a bit like Connor's egg hunting experience :)

Looks like a fun time was had by all!
