Enough Pictures to Make Your Computer Freeze

Friday evening after everyone got home from work, we took pictures of Kate and Cousin Kennedy in their Easter dresses.

They had fun running in the field while we chased them like mad women with cameras hanging from our necks.











I love this picture because it is sooooo Kate!











After our little photo shoot we had Kennedy over to dye Easter eggs. It was a pretty quick process as I only bought the dye kit that involved color tablets and stickers. The girls loved it! Kate's eggs were almost dry when she decided to dip them all again, and not in the same colors that they were originally colored. My inner OCD almost got the best of me, but I decided to just relax and let her do her thing. They turned out great and we've since taken them in and out of the fridge about 27 times for her to reposition all of the stickers.
















On Saturday we went to our church's Easter egg hunt, which was held at one of our member's family farm. They had a petting zoo, a hayride, and of course the egg hunt. Did I mention they had llamas?

Not. even. kidding.

Here's a picture of Kate with one of her most favorite nursery gals, Miss Halee.





Kate managed to lose her shoe midway through the hayride. We had to yell up to the driver and get him to stop so they we could search for her shoe, which happened to fall off right in the middle of a hayfield....covered in cow piles. Luckily we found her shoe (minus animal droppings) and the hayride continued. If a shoe was going to get lost, it was going to be Kate's. She's also the only one who insisted on standing the entire time.

Here she is, doing her thing.



Giving cousin Sara Gale some love


To pick up or not to pick up, that is the question.










Later that afternoon M to the Izz-A and I took Kate to see Disney In Spandex On Ice. I wasn't sure how long she would sit and watch it or if she would even enjoy it, but I had high hopes. She ended up loving it. Mickey was her favorite and she thought it was the coolest thing when he waved at her.






Did she love it or did she love it?!





The J-Lo's and Kim Kardashian's of the animal world. Can you say junk in the trizzunk?!






After the show we went to have dinner at Ben and Kristin's, along with our friends Jobeth, Clay, Reese.


On the ride home Kate's dress got a bit wet (Will they ever make a truly leak-proof diaper??) and we had to borrow some clothes from Kristin. Kate took it upon herself to borrow more than just an outfit. She wore the helmet most of the night, even when she went inside to eat.


The girl has a fashion sense like no other.



And today after church we managed to get a family Easter picture.

I hope everyone had a great Easter!
Christ the Lord Is Risen Today

Christ, the Lord, is risen today; Alleluia! Sons of men and Angels sing Alleluia! Raise Your Joys and Triumphs High Alleluia! Sing ye Heavens and Earth reply Alleluia!
Lives again our Glorious King Alleluia! Where O death is now thy sting Alleluia! Once He died our souls to save Alleluia! Where's the victory boasting grave Alleluia!
Love's redeeming work is done Alleluia! Fought the fight, the battle won Alleluia! Death in vain forbids Him rise Alleluia! Christ hath opened Paradise Alleluia!
Soar we now where Christ has led Alleluia! Following our exalted Head Alleluia! Made like Him, like Him we rise Alleluia! Ours the Cross, the grave the skies Alleluia!

I think my favorite, though, may be the pictures in the rain boots and helmet! That's one of those that you will need to set out on a table at her wedding reception! lol
