Easter Madness...

I'm sure everyone is sick of Easter by now, but for documenting purposes and our grandchildless Nana in Utah, here are the happenings...


We began the weekend coloring Easter eggs. Jack had a lot more fun dying eggs than I would have imagined...



Even though he loved it, it still took two adults to keep this kid from spilling, splashing, and wearing the dye. (that's grandma Susie by the way, she is the lady behind all the madness...she is such an amazing woman and my kids are lucky to have her.)




Bianca still has another year or two before she will enjoy the egg dying, for now she will just drink it...

That's my hand coming into the shot, she actually got to drink a little bit before I could take it away...




The Easter bunny didn't make it to the springer house this year, probably because he dropped off a huge load of goodies at grandma and grandpa's house then didn't have any left over for us...



All 13 grandkids opened their Easter baskets filled with chocolate, games, toys, and stuffed animals. Bianca is giving that soft little chick some seriously slobbery kisses...



Next was the egg hunt. Normally this wouldn't have been too crazy, but a torrential downpour forced the hunt indoors. Nothing like 13 kids running all over the house looking for eggs stuffed with dollar bills and candy...I will remember to take some Advil BEFORE we do this next year!
I couldn't get a single shot of Jack looking at the camera all day...






Lastly, here my pathetic attempts of an Easter picture of my two sweeties. I bet I took 50 pictures and these are the two BEST ones. Also note that behind me are several adults trying to coerce a smile out of them.
No can do mama.
Shame on me for trying to take pictures when they are coming off a serious sugar high. Poor Bianca is only minutes away from bed time.
At least we know for next year, right?
Just when I gave up, Bianca flashed me a half smile...if only jack would have been in the picture. aargh.

Oh, and these are two of Scotty's amazing sisters. Randomly. we all wore the same color so a picture was a definite must. Sorry Stacy, I know you will KILL me for posting this picture of you blinking.
Not so randomly we all have the same color hair...
Happy Easter Everyone!

Okay, what is it with kids not performing for the camera when you want them to.

Jack and Bianca look so cute in their easter outfits, and seriously good advise on the whole Advil thing. I could take some everyday and be okay with life!!!

And also, I can hardly stand how cute your hair is. Im not kidding!
