Easter 2014

 We had such a busy week that we didn't get to dye eggs until the night before Easter, but at least we got it in. For some reason we decided to do them indoors instead of outdoors and so I was a bundle of "don't spill that! nerves." Next year... outside! That being said, no dye was spilled so it was all good. Here's Maddie dying her eggs. I didn't buy a kit or anything this year, just raided my limited supply of food coloring. Apparently I need to buy some more, we were limited in color choices, but through some creative mixing, we got some pretty eggs.

 A pretty purple one.

 Bright blue.

 The Easter Bunny did a Sand and Fairy theme. Lots of sand toys and a couple of cute little fairy things. Also Grandma and Grandpa sent them some bags that they couldn't open until Easter.

 About to open their bags from Grandpa and Grandma.

 They had Girl Scout Doll Dresses and a bunch of pencils!

 Teddy tried on her outfit right away.

 Grandma has bought the girls Easter dresses every year. I really love these pale green ones! Mom bought them summer sandals to go with. Maddie and Izzie.

 Maddie and Izzie.

 I set up the camera and snapped a quick picture of us as a family. A very rare occurrence! Izzie, John, Amanda and Maddie.

 After church, the egg hunt was on. And our backyard is GREAT for egg hunting...
Izzi and Maddie scoping out the yard while I try to snap a quick picture.

 And they are off! Izzie is holding the pink bucket and Maddie has the blue/green one.

 The Easter Bunny put some eggs up high where they had to climb to get to them!

 Eggs on the rockwall too!

I love how they said some of the eggs looked like the Galaxy.
