Easter Brunch!

We celebrated Easter morning at my sister-in-law's house. Heather and Chuck just recently got a house and we were able to have an Easter brunch there. The food was very yummy. There is always a big variety of food when we get together with Andrew's side of the family because we have some vegetarians in the family. It's always fun to try new food. Cody got sick so Brenda stayed home with him. Scott was able to bring Samantha. Poor Cody! We hid tons of Easter eggs outside for the kids to find. The weather was very pleasant. Madeline ended up with soooo much candy! It was fun watching the kids find the eggs; they are so cute.

The girls are waiting to go find eggs! They are doing princess poses.

My nephew Nathan is so thrilled about his Easter basket!Our little family.
Cute cousins!

Happy Easter!!

Madeline had a great easter. She got a dress, princess shirt, movies and fun activites, and a new bike. She got to look for eggs around the house which she loves to do. We also read a story about why we celebrate easter.

Oldham Family Easter Tradition

My aunt started a tradition last year of having a big easter egg hunt for the kids. She splits it up into three different age groups and everyone brings some eggs for each age group. She usually does it in her yard but it was totally raining today so we had it at a church. Scott, Brenda and their kids were able to come. It was fun seeing them. Maddy had so much fun seeing Samantha and Cody. The kids had great fun!

The kids are waiting to go hunt for eggs.

Such a cutie!

Easter Treats!

Madeline and I made Easter treats today. We made Easter basket cupcakes with green shredded coconut for the grass, robbin eggs for the eggs, and twizzler strips for the handle. Madeline helped put the robbin eggs in the baskets. We have a lot of fun making treats together and she is such a great helper. Here are some pictures of how the Easter baskets turned out:

Treehouse Children's Museum

Today I took Madeline and her friend, Joya, to the Treehouse Children's Museum in Ogden. This was our first visit to the Museum. There are so many fun things to do at the museum. We had a great time!

Madeline and Joya

Since it's close to easter, they had an easter story time--"Peter Rabbit." Then the children got to do a craft--make bunny ears. This is Joya and Madeline making bunny ears with Peter Rabbit.

Cute little bunnies.

Fun with Play-Doh

Madeline likes to play with Play-Doh. Today we used googly eyes while we played with Play-Doh. It makes it more fun that way. Here are some pictures of Madeline's creations:
