We got to decorate Easter eggs with the grandparents.  It was fortunate to have the extra sets of hands because the little hands (including the 8 year olds) were very active and ready to help as fast as possible.  Jacob made one egg that looked a little marbled and then talked about it ... a lot.  Dani made one that said "MOM" with a pregnant stick figure that you could turn upside down and make a fitting message of "WOW" with an upside down pregnant stick figure!

On Saturday, the ward hosted the annual Easter egg hunt at Dr. Farley's home.  They got a good number of eggs, though I would say that the oldest ones aren't quite at that time of full throttle hunting and gathering.

Kate and Liam were particularly interested in the doughnuts afterward!

The Sunday morning Easter egg hunt was pretty short since we were up late the night before and had 9:00 church to get to.  After baskets were found, we quickly had to promise that they could play later and get ready for church.

Kate and Liam particularly enjoyed their bubbles.  Kate was a little better at getting bubbles to form, though Liam had some great form with his pursed lips.

We did a back yard Easter egg hunt as well (it seemed a little bit of overkill, but we did it anyways).

The great thing about having siblings is that you can help them empty the candy out of their eggs.  

The great thing about a younger sibling is that you can trade them for the candy you want!

Dani is now over 32 weeks pregnant.  She still tries to suck in her cute pregnant belly for many pictures!

We were able to get a picture with almost everyone looking at the camera smiling or pleasantly!

Both Jacob and Claire got their own set of scriptures and a case.  They have been reading them and marking them, which Kate can't quite wrap her head around why it's okay to do and is certain to tell them her feelings!

The kids put on a flannel board story of the resurrection for everyone.  It is fun to watch and hear their gospel knowledge continuing to grow.
