Our Easter Weekend - Lots of Pictures!!

We had such a great weekend.  We went to my parent's house.  The night before Easter we colored eggs.  I found these "NO SPILL" kits at Wal-Mart.  They didn't quite live up to their claims, but for a 2-yr-old it was a good option.

the instructions said to shake the egg to coat it with dye...we did and the egg cracked!
We also put rollers in Maddie's hair for the first time!  She wasn't so sure about sitting still for the process, so Mom entertained while I quickly put them in as fast as I could, often tagging along behind her on my knees with a section of hair in one hand, comb in mouth and roller in the other hand.  It was a bit crazy but the end result was well worth the effort!  She looked so sweet with her little curls!

On Easter morning Maddie discovered the Easter Bunny came!
Ummm, to say she was excited is the understatement of the year!

I started on making the bread for lunch since the total time takes about 4 hours...

just like the rollers, this too was well worth the effort!
Yummy!  The eggs actually baked right along with the bread, a special touch for Easter, and were like a soft boiled egg when finished. 
Once the bread was set out to rise, it was time to get all pretty for church...
and take pictures!

After church we got pictures of everyone else...
My sister Mistie and her family.
My sister Christie and her family.  Yep, they're twins!
All of the cousins!
Too sweet to leave this one out!
and Maddie danced for us!

Maddie understood this year what hunting the Easter eggs was all about.  She LOVED putting them in her little basket.
 She worked really hard to get this one...the silly thing kept rolling!  : )  
So, that's all the pictures...'Till next year!

Hope you had a very Happy Easter!
