We had a great Easter this year! The kids loved their baskets, and the egg hunt. We had Stake conference this year and it was a Broadcast, so church was just 2 hours, which was nice. We had a good dinner with some good friends and it was nice to come right home and put our tired children to bed and spend some alone time together. We tried to really focus on the meaning of Easter with the kids this year. I'm so grateful for the Atonement and that because He died for us we can return to live with him again and be an eternal family.
The kids checking out their baskets.
Brooke in her new outfit! I had the other kids wear theirs from last year since they still fit, trying to think frugal minded! I lucked out with Brooke's cause it was on sale and happened to match the other kids perfectly!

Kylee the little poser! She's always ready for the camera!

The boys! This was the only picture I could get out of them, unlike Kylee, they were not down for a photo shoot!

My sweet girls!

Ryan and the kids

Me and the kids

Caden's a good little photographer! ( Me and my Hubby!)

The Hunt! The kids loved it! We had to slow Caden down so that he would leave some for the twins!

Kylee on the Hunt!

Brandon so excited he found an egg on his own!

they look so stinkin cute. i love brook with that hair bow. we got to get you more of those for her hair. and you look awesome, i swear you look like you're back to your norm before brooke. mark is doing p90x. so fun to watch him get all sweaty. ryan should try it, it kicks marks but everytime, but he hates the yoga. wont do it anymore. he keeps trying to get me to do it with him. i sometimes wonder if he thinks i'm making the baby thing up, he doesn't get that i can't pull ups and things.

I LOVE the pictures!!! Too cute. And Brooke definitely looks like Caden. She is by far an ellis! I love Kylie's dress, and her cute piggytails. Isn't it fun to do things to hair now? Simply adorable family!
