Easter!

What a full Easter we had this year! It all began with a little visitor from somewhere in the neighborhood. The reincarnation of my little Ebony came padding up our driveway. Since our dogs get out ALL OF THE TIME, we thought we would pay it forward and take care of this little one until we could find out who she belonged to. Tim really fell hard for her and he took these pics of himself and Topher.

She had a rabies tag, so we called the vet on it and found out her name is Olive. Kind of appropriate, don't you think? She belongs to our new neighbors across the street who weren't home, so she colored eggs that night with the rest of the "family".

We found an egg coloring kit that makes it so you can tip the bowl, the color goes into the top container, but the egg comes out in your hand, so no spillage. It was pretty cool.

This is Tim's possessed photo. Or zombie photo, take your pic.

Okay, those who watch Saturday Night Live and the character Stefan, will appreciate this egg. If you don't know, ask me and I will tell you. Booooooooof!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





Gizmo thinks he is being punished because we won't let him eat the dye.

Here is a close up of Olive. Isn't she cute!

I love how the dogs act like they haven't been fed in YEARS.

I was SO lazy that day. I didn't even get out of my jammies. It was awesome! Tim and I.

Toph and I (with a cameo from Tim)

Terry and I

Fast forward to the next morning. The Easter Bunny hid the baskets PRETTY well!



Topher found his!

Tim finally found his!

Bunny brought candy AND money. Yeeeessssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!









Brendon doesn't like chocolate. I didn't realize how much Easter was centered around chocolate until the Easter Bunny tried to fill his basket. Not so much. Better for him anyway I guess. He was okay with it. Here is Topher and Terry kickin' it after a long morning of eating candy and eggs.Later, Boston and Allee came over. Alex is on tour, so I am glad they still came!



Check out that loot! Boston calls me Mimi and Terry Papa. I think it is hilarious! He pretends he's all macho about it, but he picked out EVERY SINGLE TOY for Boston's basket. Boston SO has Terry wrapped around his finger. It is really cute!

Scary how quick they learn what money is.


Later we joined the Erickson clan for an Easter egg hunt and a WONDERFUL dinner. Thanks Neil and Donielle!

KambrieTim and KambrieCorbin and Brendon hid the eggs. I thought this hiding place was pretty funny!



Topher is on a mission. Look at his face!

Mason is really getting serious. He started digging for eggs!

Buddy is helping out too!

Louis is getting in on the action as well.

Coco decided she would just watch from the porch.

Brendon had a good time I think

Here is a picture of Brendon with Joan Jett!


After the Ericksons, we went to see my dad. No wait, I'm sorry, we went to see Tiger. hehe

Sue, Bren, and Dad.

Sue made us these cute bunny cupcakes.

It was a very fun and crazy Easter for us. We are very blessed to have such wonderful family and friends to share it with!
