Easter Weekend

We had a lovely Easter weekend.  We started to celebrate early with my family as my parents and sister would be out of town.  Then we went to our family Easter Egg hunt at my Aunt and Uncle's house.  It was so much fun!  Avery really loved it.  Sunday we enjoyed the day at church celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior.  We had a great lunch with Josh's extended family.  It was a great weekend!  Here are a few pics of the weekend.

 Dinner with her favorite (and only) cousin, Carson (or Carsy as Avery calls him)
 My parents with Amelia.  She is looking at Ma Z. 
 Throwing pennies in the water fountain. 

 Our family at the Easter Egg Hunt. 
 They had two bouncers and one was for little kids.  She was in heaven.
 Pretty much stayed on the slide the entire time. We had to bribe her out with snacks. 
 Getting ready for the hunt. 

 Putting a Cascarone on Daddy's head.
 Now Daddy's turn.
 Avery just put one in my hair. 
    Daddy is bad influence...gave Avery her first taste of Cotton Candy.  She didn't love it though.

The girls' Easter baskets.
Easter morning!

We had to wake her up on Easter morning. 

Happy Hunting!
Daddy showing her what is inside the eggs. 

At church on Easter Sunday

Josh's parents with the girls
Since she never gets a close-up...Amelia all dolled up in roses. 
At lunch at Granny Helen's house with Auntie Viv.  I didn't take too many pictures at lunch (food was important)...sorry everyone!
Granny got Avery a bunny cake.

We are blessed beyond measure and are so grateful for our precious girls and sweet nephew. My parents wanted a picture of all of their grandchildren so we took the kiddos to get their pictures made. Here are a few of the pictures.

Amelia Grace at 15 weeks. 

Avery Blake at 23 months (will be two on May 1st - time is flying by so fast!!)

The girls with their favorite cousin, Carson (age 3).  This was the best picture of all three.  Amelia is about to  fall off the pillow. 
Carson with his baby cousin, Amelia.  Avery was a little pistol and was challenging to get into the photos. 
I loved this pic, but I can't figure out how to turn it on Blogger.  Sorry! 

Isn't he a doll? 

Carson found this prop on the wall and brought it to Avery.  She is ready for "All that Jazz!!"
Playing around with the hat.  They thought it was hysterical. 
Trying to do a group picture again.  Carson and Amelia are ready and Avery is not cooperating....
Then Amelia looses it....
Carson and Avery:  "what's up with this crying baby?"
Avery:  "I'll fix it."

Easter Playdate

Enjoyed a fun playdate with good friends today. The kids got to hunt Easter eggs after lunch. Avery was really into it. She wanted to open the eggs before putting them in her basket. Here are a few pictures from the day. Thanks gals for a great morning!!
Avery loves to swing and even likes to be like the big kids and swing on her tummy. 
Cheesing for the camera. 
So precious...wish Amelia was looking up.  After the picture, I almost fell over trying to get Amelia that Avery was so gently PUSHING out of her arms.  haha!
The precious kiddos minus two that were there.  Avery definitely has the pick of the boys.  Josh will be mad that I am saying that.  LOL!
