The kids were spoiled rotten this year with THREE easters. On Easter Sunday we went to Regan's parent's house and had a delicious dinner and then a humongous easter egg hunt outside. The kids were bouncing off the walls excited!

Ash was hilarious for her first egg hunt where she knew what was kinda going on. 

Chloe was a pro.

Some of the eggs were FULL of candy (and i mean almost exploding) and some were full of money. They got to use their money to buy toys at the "Easter Store." needless to say we came home with a whole lot of goodies from Nana's house!

Ash took a tumble. it was pretty funny. ha ha

She had so much fun finding all the eggs. some of the eggs had puzzle pieces in them so they didn't rattle when they picked them up. Ash would just leave those ones on the ground. she knows where the goods are. 


I would say Easter Egg hunt #1 was a success!

We dyed easter eggs too one day. the kids loved it! 

Chloe still asks if we can dye eggs almost every day. I tell her next Easter and she goes into major drama mode. "but WHEN is it gonna be easter again mom?? not for forever!!!" 

Ash was there too. she colored a few eggs. we kept her away from the dye, maybe thats mean but I didn't want to have to clean it up after she spilled it like last year!

 After the Easter overload at Nana's house we decided to hold off on the Easter bunny coming for a few days so he came to our house the next friday. They didn't care when he came right? gotta love little kids!

They had some fun little toys in their baskets and the eggs had mostly little toys from the dollar store. They had plenty of candy already. Chloe also got some princess and the frog figurines which she LOVES! Ash got a minnie the mouse bunny that i didn't take a picture of. but its adorable and smells like chocolate so thats pretty fantastic!

Ash was berry excited. 

You like chloes jammies? She wanted a hello kitty t-shirt and the mean mom I am wouldn't buy her one.  I just really dont like characters on their clothes so I compromised and let her buy the biggest size and wear it to bed. See i'm not THAT bad. 

They also had a chocolate bunny to find, We always got a chocolate bunny growing up. and chloe has eaten one bite of hers and they have been sitting in the same place on the counter since then, untouched. I dont know how that happened! 

And down to Easter #3 we had at my parents house. Another delicious meal and a super fun egg hunt! The kids all got these water cute water bottles, among other things, cars, candy, little toy guns. Chloe did not know how to shoot a gun?? ha ha who knew? she had to use her thumb cause her trigger finger wasn't strong enough. it was hilarious. 

Candy all over the land.

Time for a new coat Ash??

Cutest little Baker man. Him and Ashley were so cute playing together all day.

Everyone got a chocolate bunny here too, even the adults! 

Van and Chloe are best buds. well she loves to follow him around and he tolerates her. 

And a chocolate princess egg with a prize inside! lucky girl! 

Ash and Baker eating all the candy. 

I wasn't going to buy the girls Easter dresses this year but then we saw our little cousin Ali had the most adorable pink dress. She is from Utah so we didn't think we could get them. But then gramma Dix pulled through and went to Great falls right before Easter! YAY! gotta love Target!!

And just to show I was there too! I love my babies. who aren't babies anymore :(
And how stinking cute is this kid?? I can't get enough of her.

nice compromise on the hello kitty shirt. I'm the same. I'm dying because the only bike I could find for norah for her b-day is DORAH. Meh. At least it wasn't the barbie one, and she's not wearing it! lol.

holy Easter overhaul. love the darling girls in their dresses!

I only wish that Canada wasn't so far away so we could have gotten a pic of all three girls together in their matching dresses! yeah for Aunt Dixie!

Your girls are just getting way too adorable!! Miss you guys a ton! And I am in total agreement about kids plastered with characters. I have let Ali get a hello kitty shirt and minnie mouse one but they were the only exceptions ;) and she prefers to just wear dresses anyway.
