easter weekend 2011

we had a very crazy easter weekend!

on friday, kyle and i left at 5am for tennessee to go to shannon wight's (a good friend from school) wedding. jillian stayed home with the nelsons. we felt it would be cruel to make her drive 20 hours in 2 days!

we loved tennessee and the wedding! (but more on that later)

while we were at the wedding, the nelsons had their easter fun, so jillian had fun with them. they texted us pictures and said she loved hunting eggs!

we drove home on saturday night, and climbed into bed at 5am! yes, 5am. we were tired. we didn't even go home, we just crashed at the nelsons, where jillie was.

we then very slowly crawled out of bed at 9am. (we really really didn't want to miss church).

the 3 of us surprisingly made it to church on time!

{baby no.2 was there too! showing up a little earlier than i remember no.1 showing, btw!}

after church we made a quick trip to see all the nelsons who were in town and we'd missed all weekend.

then we had lunch at my parents and the kids hunted easter eggs.

{us in all our craziness, all the cameras are kinda funny}

{this is how she carried her basket the whole time, so cute!}

jillian was serious business about hunting eggs!

i was shocked how good she was at just a year old.

{getting some pointers from daddy}

she would scope it out, put her basket down, and make a beeline for a few eggs, then bring them back to her basket. she filled it in no time, and we didn't help her at all!

i didn't get a picture of all the kids, but here's a few..

{andrew got some gummy teeth in on of his eggs}

{izzie getting her hunt on}

{haylie bug}

{looks like dellie was considering sharing with papa}

{she's just as happy with the eggs, as she is what's inside!}

{checking out her loot, once we came inside to cool off!}

and here we are easter weekend, last year. i was 41 weeks pregnant, and got induced at 5 am on monday morning!
crazy how much changes in just a year!
