Easter this year was kind of mellow not major crazy or fun but still it was celebrated and enjoyed. We dyed eggs. Had yummy EASY food and as usual my dad went big on the Easter egg hunt. All the little ones under 5 did a little hunt and held their breath while grandpa added points. In our hunt each egg is worth a certain amount of points. So its not like you just get eggs and eat your candy -one and done. We have prizes and awards for the first place winner etc.. Good times. Especially since Annette was able to fly in and visit.

The kids made such cute eggs.

This is my brothers baby. He came up on Saturday and I was high as a kite cause I was feeding my little boy Cole and put him down cause I thought he wanted to play but he reached out to me and wanted me to hold him. Melted my heart. I love being an Auntie!

In the mist of hunting for eggs

Counting points with Grandpa. Ohhh the stress! You could hear a pin drop.

All of the above happened on Saturday. On Sunday my dad had another hunt for my kids. He played into the sibling rivalry between Addie and Dallin big time. Annette added a $100 prize for the winner and my gut dropped. I knew it would KILL who ever lost and lets just say it did just that. He fudged the score in round one and made it SEEM like a double over time was necessary between Dallin and Addie. Olivia was already drying at this point. But my dad loves that tension and it only gets him more excited. Round 2- they had to find one golden egg in a certain amount of time.... Addie found it. The shit then hit the fan. Dallin lost control. Annette decided to help the situation by telling the kids the truth and doubling the money they would get. For now it has calmed down but I dont want this same game plan next year sheesh!
