Easter 2010

I can't believe it's already Easter, I swear it was just Christmas. How does the time go by so fast? Yet it sometimes seems so slow too - like when Easton had diarrhea all day on Easter and was literally in the bathroom every 10 minutes. Too much info? We were lucky to have Grandma Lani here the week leading up to Easter. Boy am I glad she's a teacher and gets Spring Break off...we always look forward to her spring visits!

Sometimes I am bad when it comes to certain traditions (read: I'm lazy). I feel like dying eggs is a lot of effort, seeing as how neither Easton or I like to eat them. But once we got started we were having fun and I was glad that Easton was into it; and Steve will eat them.


Does anyone else think it's cool that my cups match the dye color? Or is that just me?



We had a yummy dinner and fun Easter egg hunt with our friends in their nice backyard with actual grass. It was pretty dang cute, I love how they are getting older and getting into holidays more.

To top off the great day we took a walk around our neighborhood. Some people get all dressed up in their fancy new Easter clothes and take pictures: we headed to the construction site and set up my camera on a bulldozer.

Happy Easter!!!

I appreciate your mug matching dye easter cups. Sounds like something OCD I would like to do. I also love your picture taken on a bulldozer. I didn't get dressed up and take any fancy family pictures either. We were lucky to even get dressed on Sunday.

Love the matching mugs! Speaking of time flying can you believe Beth & Britt are going to be 15?!? How did that happen so quickly? Cherish each diarrhea moment...truly!!!

Christi said...

I like the Easter egg cups too!!! Glad that the kids had fun hunting eggs. I love that picture of Carly with the Easter basket!

Too cute for words!!!! Your cup matching, Granilani with her darling kiddos, and your beautiful family in front of the local bulldozer. What great memories.

You and Lizzie keep mentioning "outside" activities. I'm so jealous! It's still too cold in Oregon. Color coordinating your dye was a good idea! Carly gets cuter every single post. I know I say that every time, but it's true!

hahahahaha, That's why easton has such an adorable smile in that last picture, because you're at a construction sight. perfect! I love all the pictures. Especially the dying eggs one, and I totally agree with you, I love watching easton get older and more excited about things!!

And carly's easter outfit! TOO CUTE! and she's smiling so so cute in them!

you and steve look super great and I'm so glad you had fun with Lani!

I hope Lani doesn't mind me calling her Lucky Lani but dang she is so lucky to get to spend a week with you guys and you are lucky to have her. I'm happy for her because I know how good that feels.

Are you kidding, coloring easter eggs is one of my all time favorite activities, right up there wiht decorating the tree but much less stressful for me. I wasn't going to do it this year, no need:) But even though all the parents told me they were doing it with their kids I couldn't resist, we decorated eggs and they loved it. Next year I will have matching cups!

The pictures are adorable and I love being able to get a peak of what your Easter was like.
Love you all so much!

Carol and Bruce said...

Oh, and Carly looks so adorable with her basket, her hair has gotten thicker since I saw her in Beaver.

Danielle said...

The first thing I thought when I saw you guys dying eggs was, I love her colored mugs! They are GREAT! And I love that you matched the dyes to the mugs! You look so great in the pictures! Seriously hottie!

Carly is always dressed so darn cute!! I think she is looking so much like Easton (but in a girl way of course) these days... at least from what i can tell from here! Happy Easter!

Awesome updates em. I've been behind in reading them so took some time this morning. Your kids are sooo cute, you look great, and that 80's party looked like it rocked!! Hey, the girl on the far left, is her name Brooke? If so, that's a friend of mine from BYU-Hawaii. She's in vegas now and you might know her...small world's collide. :)

i love how teh cups match the egg dye! I was thinking that before i even read your comment! your kids are so cute! and you are so beautiful! I think that every time i see your face in a pic- so pretty.

Jill said...

Yay, Happy Easter! I feel the same way about egg dying. I can't not do it, but I never eat them so it seems kinda pointless. That reminds me, though. I was gonna make potato salad for Darren with them.

Love the pics of those adorable kids, keep them coming please!

The Boman Family said...

Okay, matching the cups to the dye is something I would totally do, too. :o) Looks like you all had a great Easter!

Lindsay said...

Way fun. I DO love your mugs. I need some good colorful ones like that! Fun Easter! I love the bulldozer shot.
