Easter Festivities

We had a wonderful Easter weekend.  We always go to my grandmother's house for lunch on Saturday so we can spend the whole day with her.  We hid the eggs for the kiddos.  We usually have a full contact egg hunt but this year we opted for kickball instead, Mom and Dad even got in on the action.  We laughed till we cried!  It was a great way to spend the afternoon.

Harper was exhausted after finding 41 eggs at the church egg hunt.

Porter loved being on the lawn mower.  He would have driven that thing all afternoon if we'd let him.
Crazy hair.
Harper found some glasses.  She loves sunglasses.
The whole Maxwell Family before church.
The Horton Family in what could possibly be the worst ever.  I blame the photographer for not checking the photo before the shoot ended.
Our baskets.  We have the best Easter bunny ever.  We got scratch off lottery tickets, how fun is that?
The kiddos with their baskets.

Mom and the kids dyed eggs. 

Ally was pooped but she looked adorable in her dress.

We had a wonderful evening at the Horton's house too.  I never get any pictures there.  There was an amazing spread of food and desserts.  I love Easter, it's so refreshing.  Everything is made new and I love the crisp feeling when we're sprinkled with Holy Water to be reminded of our baptism.  I love leaving Mass with a renewed spirit and hope.
