Easter 2010

Mom and dad are visiting this weekend and my brother and his family stopped by on their drive home from Florida. Since Lexi wasn't going to be here for long, we made the most of our time together, dying eggs and having a little egg hunt. Lexi really got into they dying:

After the eggs were dry, the Easter Bunny took and hid them. He also laid some plastic eggs. Some were filled with candy, some had little pom-pom chicks (that I helped the Easter Bunny make), and some had blueberries and raspberries. The raspberries were a HUGE hit with Lexi, which made me very happy :)


Lily picked up a few eggs, but it didn't hold her interest too long:

Lexi, on the other hand, was all about the hunt:

We took the nice weather as an opportunity to take some family portraits:

Lexi is a really great big sister. Unfortunately, I don't think I was ever this nice to my brother...

Dad thinks the title of this one should be "Family Tree":

How great that you got to get some family photos all together.
Sometimes it is so difficult to coordinate everyone.
:)
Looks like you made a really special day with your ever expanding family.

Beautiful pictures, as always. I love the shots of the whole clan. Those are really great. The second one of Lexi is my favorite though.

Hi Brook and Corey,

Loved the pictures. My favorite was the family tree.

Isn't it funny how brothers always get the last word? Is it my imagination or do Lexi and Lily look like sisters?

Thanks for the smiles.
