Easter Time...

I have been looking for this weekend for months! Carey's mom flew in Wednesday (it was supposed to be Tuesday but that is a long story...let's just say it took her eight hours to leave Kansas City and fly right back to it!) and Bryan, Carla, Brenton and Bailey came in on Friday. I picked up Jessica, Hunter and Mikey Friday morning and all the kids were so excited to spend some time together! Friday afternoon we all dyed Easter eggs! It was so much fun! The kids seemed to really enjoy it!
They each decorated a dozen eggs!
Hunter and Mikey made a lot of the sports eggs!
Smile Bailey!
Love the egg Brenton!Jess did a fabulous job with her eggs!
After dying eggs, we all loaded up into the cars and headed to the mountains. We ate at Riverside Cafe in Medicine Park and the kids had a great time feeding the fish. We drove up Mount Scott and it was so beautiful and such a beautiful day!
The five kids posing pretty!
Mikey is so cute!
Look at those muscles Hunter!

Today, we all loaded up (Carey, me, Linda, Bryan, Carla, Bailey, Brenton, Mom, Dad, Shane, Jess, Hunter, Mikey, Nana, Papa and Uncle Bill) and headed out to Aunt Nay Nay's house to meet Nay Nay, Uncle Ronnie, Kourtney, Emma, Joseph, JR, Nat, Holly and Luke for a big Easter shin dig! This morning, Papa and I made 5 dozen deviled eggs and they were sure good! We had smoked meat, honey ham, potato salad, slaw, baked beans and some really awesome dessert including Momma L's brownie chocolate cake! I got to finally meet Luke (check out the Thrasher's blog if you don't know who that is) and play with him! He is so precious! **Cody and Holly...you have a beautiful baby!** After we stuffed our faces so full it was ridiculous, it was time to hunt the Easter Eggs! There were over 200 eggs hidden and some had candy and others had money in them! Emma found one!

Thank you to all of our family that helped make this day such a success! Please know that your hard work is well noted! We love you!

We had a great day filled with family and fun but please don't forget the true purpose of Easter...Jesus' ressurection! We pray many blessings upon each of you and your families!

God Bless You!
