Happy Easter!!

I love Easter. I LOVE the why we celebrate Easter,  I love the bright colors, I love the white sandals for little girls, I love the pastel ties for the men, I love that guys where pink on this holiday (except for Tyson... maybe one day I can get him to wear it...), I love little Easter dresses minus the bonnets, gloves, and unnecessary frilliness, I LOVE Cadbury Mini Eggs, and making Easter baskets, and filling my babies eggs with raisins, goldfish... and a few jelly beans. We hope you had a wonderful Easter reflecting on the life, death and resurrection of the Savior.
We did...and here is our special day...





Merrick got a sock monkey with his initials from Grandma Rae (mom do you like that?...I do) and the movie, "The Jungle Book". Oh... they got peeps too. I thought it would be fun to watch them eat them!
I couldn't get this picture to rotate...blogger bugs sometimes.
Berkleigh got a sock monkey with her initial on it from her Grandma Rae, the movie "Enchanted"...really for me... hehe... and eggs filled with goldfish and raisins.


We took these rice krispie nests to our Easter dinner with the Heymans.
Thanks Heymans, Jenny the ham was fantastic, and the potatoes were SO creamy (like in While you were Sleeping)

I just love rice krispie egg baskets. I am totally jealous we didn't have any :-( Maybe once you move down we can enjoy spending time together and I can learn from your great ideas!
