Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!! Ours was a simple but beautiful day. Saturday night we had our annual Easter Egg Dying Contest. It was so fun! We did the whole thing via skype with my parents so we got to brag as usual as we were dipping and seeing what we thought was about to be the "winning egg".
This was our setup while we were getting ready for some serious egg decorating!
Here is Adam and I and BIG baby bump holding our "Brookley Kate" egg. She will be "hatching" in about 8 weeks or less :) We can't wait to meet her! *Please excuse my no make-up, tired, pregnant look! Easter cake dot orders were the priority all day.
We had our great friends Nichole and Grant Fisher over to join in on the fun and they jumped right in there and had some VERY COOL ideas...!
Since we couldn't be together with the family and get a judge to decide on the winners like we normally do, a good friend of mine, Mary Beth had the great idea of putting the pictures on facebook and letting all of our friends vote by "liking" the photos. LOVED the idea!
So here are the winners...
1st place - Chad (my brother)
2nd place - Adam (my husband)
3rd place - Adam (again)
Here are some of our eggs that didn't win but I think are SO CUTE!
The tradition that we share in doing this is something that I will never forget. It definitely makes Easter something to look forward to!
What did I do with all of these beautiful eggs, you ask? Why, I made my husband these...
...and ate 4 while I was doing it. :/ Ahh.. Pregnancy!
Easter morning was wonderful. After a great service at church we headed to Adam's workplace "Alma Mater" if you will, the Bald Headed Bistro. It's always so fun to go back and see some of the employees and catch up with them. We had easter brunch there and it was delicious! I snapped a picture of my precious, handsome husband while we were eating...
Then he takes the phone and says "now we gotta get you!!" and I pose awkwardly for the picture...
Here we are for a more serious picture wishing everyone a Happy Easter 2011!!
Hope yours was as great as ours!
