Easter 2010

This year we were able to enjoy our second Easter in this house. We decided to host again and invited both our families. My mom and dad and brother came up and spent the day with us on Saturday and my mom helped me and the girls color eggs. The girls did a really good job with this and didn't make as big a mess as I'd anticipated.
Sunday morning we had an easter egg hunt in the house and watched as the girls ran around finding all the eggs and shaking them to see how much candy was in the plastic ones.

Here they are with all their loot!
We had a yummy breakfast complete with orange rolls (a conference sunday tradition) and watched both sessions of conference while I put together dinner and dessert.
After conference my brothers Jacob and Matt came with Matt's wife and my niece and nephew.
Russell's brother Aaron came with his wife and their 2 sons so we had a full house, mixing both families as we did last year. Dinner was much more pleasant this year, due to the fact that I didn't have to go clean up Madylin's sick as I did last year in the middle of dinner! We had ham and potato salad, rolls, green beans, and fried apples. It was great!
For dessert we had carrot cake and fruit pizza. The pizza turned out so pretty I had to take a picture- this stuff is SOOO amazingly good.
After dinner we had another egg hunt in the back yard because Aaron's boys hadn't had one yet. It was fun to have young cousins together to do a hunt

My mom bought this outfit for Nathan to go with the girls' outfits, but sadly this is the only picture I got of the 3 of them. The girls let go of Nathan after this picture was taken and my mom barely caught his face before it hit the ground 4 steps below! I was a little traumatized after that (so was he) and never got around to another photo shoot.
( I don't know why he's showing the international sign for "I'm gonna be sick!")
All together a really great Easter once again- I have to admit that I love hosting!

Trying a New 'Do

My little Nathan's got hair that grows straight up out of his head like a Chia Head.
It's very cute, but his hair is getting long and I'm not ready to cut it, so I've been experimenting with some hair product to try and tame his crazy fuzz-head.
(He is eating a biter biscuit here- those things make such a mess!)

So what do you think? Which is better?
