Winner winner... Easter Dinner!

I hope all of you had a beautiful Easter weekend filled with family, food and laughter. We had a quick trip to Minnesota to be with my mom and daughters there. We had a traditional ham dinner and an Easter egg hunt for the little ones.
James put together over 200 eggs filled with candy and toys and they hid them throughout my mom's yard.
Here are just a few random shots of the day...

And the race is on...

James tends to have a sense of humor...

Poor Sophie spent 5 min. trying to jump for this "shiny" one!

She got help from her older cousin

Such a sweet brother...

...but somehow it always ends like this!

Everyone was allowed equal amount of eggs... just to be fair

Everyone showing Grandma their bootee...

It was a quick trip but we all had fun and praising God for His goodness to us.

  5. Rebecca- I love all your photos of your family. Those kids are ALL so cute. I love one of Sophie jumping up to get the egg. That would be something my youngest son would do---put it up out of reach like that. It looks like everyone is having a really fun time. I thought at first that your brother had put PIE in your face!!!! Then I noticed that it was just a Target bag-gotta love a guy like that- Blessings to you- xo Diana

This was the 2nd year in a row that we didn't spend Easter with family- Before that we always had everyone at our house- 30+ people and the biggest Easter egg hunt around!

It will be fun to find the perfect spot for that pretty wreath!!
