Easter weekend

We had a great Easter weekend. The weather was beautiful!

About a month ago Addie was with me in Target and she said, "Mommy, I'm not afraid of the Easter bunny anymore.  He's cute and fuzzy.  I'm four now. I'm going to hug him this year."  On Saturday our church hosts an Easter Egg hunt at Brown Park.  Addie was excited to see the bunny.  She hugged him right away.  I then I asked her to pose with him and she wouldn't do it.  She got scared all of the sudden.

A few minutes later Darcy (a high schooler at our church) convinced her to pose with him if she held her hand.  This is as close as she got.  Ha! 

Addie and Lucy.  They love each other.

Posing with some of her eggs.

Kate hanging out at the hunt.

Wow!  I'm actually in a picture with both my girls!

After the hunt we stayed home all day.  Jeremy didn't work much at all which hardly ever happens anymore on Saturdays.  Both of us have been really busy with work.  It was so nice to have nothing planned and to have him around the house.  Addie and I made sugar cookies.  She loves making them!

That evening we dyed eggs.  This is actually this first time we did it with Addie.  It was a fun new tradition.

The bunny arrived!

On Sunday we went to church.  It is one of my favorite services of the year.  Easter is so special and means so much.  The beautiful weather made it even better!

Addie saw this dress in Target and really wanted it for her Easter dress.  It is pink, girly and poofy.  And then she want Kate to be her "twin".  I never dress them alike, but for the special occasion thought I would do it.  Here's Addie after church showing off her dress.  She's so big!

Addie is actually curtsying here.  Love this!

In the afternoon we went to Jeremy's Aunt Kathy's house.  Here is Josie (cousin's daughter) with Clayton (another cousin's son) and Kate.

This is SO our girl...Addie all dressed up playing in rocks!  She is such a mix of girly girl and tom boy. :)

This picture is so funny!  Kate is itching to crawl, but she ends up getting frustrated, gives up and lays on her belly.  Clayton started patting her head, but it looked like he was pushing her face down.  She was not pleased!

A family photo...without either girl looking at the camera or smiling. :)  You win some, you lose some.

Then all the kids did an egg hunt.

And they are off!

This pictures cracks me up!  Addie is going in for an egg.  No holding back!

I changed Kate's dress because she had a hard time in it.  She was swimming in tulle. :)  Love her!

After the hunt everyone played a game of softball.  Jeremy's uncle Mark was trying to teach her how to hit.

Addie wouldn't take her dress off all day.  She wore it up until she went to bed.  Ha!

It was a wonderful weekend celebrating the risen Christ!
