Easter 2015

Yes.... Easter.  I know it's almost the 4th of July, but I can't seem to keep up with my little blog.  We have been so busy the last few months with our adoption paperwork, that everything else has been pushed aside.

So....

Let's talk about what we did for Easter this year!

First up we had a fun time with all three girls dying eggs.  Well, really Preslee sat close by and enjoyed watching her sisters while chowing down on some Puffs.  They loved it of course... they got to unleash their inner Picaso!







Then we decided to try something new.  We typically take our family Easter picture after worship service on  Sunday before rushing out to my parents house.  Well, this year we decided that we'd get all cleaned up and put on our Easter clothes on Saturday.  Then we could take our picture and not feel rushed (and tired and in bad moods).  It actually worked great, & I think we'll implement it in the future.

Here was this year's Easter picture:

And of course, for fun...here are all of our years in order to see how our family has changed: 





I love this fun family tradition.  I only wish we had started it that first year we moved back to Texas- which would have put Kennedie at 11 months old. :) Can't wait to see if our 4th will be in our picture next year. 


My sweet big girls... the best of friends:

Family:

Crazy Faces:


My sweet girls...... I love them so much!  They are such blessings!

And those dresses... so cute, right?! My talented mom made them!  Here they are with their talented seamstress, "Bee:"

And Baba was there too helping everyone smile, so we had to get one with her:

My girls & me:

But really... they are Daddy's girls:

And sweet Miss Kennedie wanted a picture by herself.  She picked her pose & location:

And Preslee babe was there too... don't forget!

On Sunday morning the Easter bunny left some goodies for the girls, and boy did they have fun with it! 

Here are all their baskets sitting out ready for them & their eggs stuffed ready for our egg hunt later in the day:

Here is Kennedie's basket:

Here is Sawyer Sue's: 

Here is Preslee's: 

The fun:






Later in the day after worship we decided to do Easter at our house.  This way Preslee could nap in her own bed & it would keep things a little simpler for us.  Everyone always seems to be waiting on us for lunch anyways... this seemed to be a good solution.  Mom, Dad, Momma Jean, & Poppa all came over for lunch & our egg hunt. 

I found this little gem of my parents being silly while I was going through our Easter pictures. Ha! Makes me laugh:
  
Here are all three of my "Ray's"... Michael Ray, Preslee Ray, &  the original "Ray," Charles Ray:


Getting ready for the egg hunt... we had to do it in the front since the back was a mud pit:


And they're off {little sister, Preslee, was asleep by this point}: 








And the final products... except Kennedie already dumped hers all out, and she only had one left in her basket:


Overall we had a super fun weekend.  I love spending time with my people!  Such great memories!
