Easter 2012

Oh Easter.... why must you taste so good? Seriously... do you eat ANYTHING that isn't packed with sugar during the easter season? I don't.
This year, in stead of dying our eggs the traditional way we tried the whole silk dying thing. AWESOME. For little kids I couldn't think of a better way to do it. AnDee got to help wrap them up, and put them in the pot. Then after her nap she got to open them all up and see what she made! It was like a bunch of little egg sized presents and the best part? No mess. Plus they look super cool. What more could you ask for?

On Saturday we had an Easter egg hunt at Nanny and Poppy's with the Cowley cousins. Pep of course found one egg and sat happily and played with it for a good 15 minutes. AnDee was an egg hunting machine and scored a fair amount of sugar filled eggs. Then the cousins teamed up to help Pep fill the rest of his basket. We ate hot dogs and potato salad and just played. Playing with her cousins is like heaven to my daughter. I was flying solo that day since Andrew was out hunting bear but as usual my siblings and parents stepped up and helped me out. Thank you all

This little lady is the newest addition to the Cowley family. Baby Grace... So tiny... SO cute!

Next on the list of things to blog... My attempt at making Easter outfits for my children. I took a bunch of different ideas I found on Pinterest and just blended them and added a few of my own ideas and this is what came out of it...

sometimes my children make some... interesting faces while taking pictures. Ok so its not just while taking pictures.
Anywho... that was our weekend! Fun stuff!


  1. I'm totally impressed! Did you make AnDee's dress because it's ridiculously cute! And the suspenders and bow tie are almost as adorable as that Pep kid. Seriously your kids are ridiculous!

  2. I love your kids outfits! Sierra told me how cute they were, I'm glad you posted pictures! I need to know how you did the silk egg thing! I loved how they look. You Cowley kids have the cutest kids! xoxoxoxo

  3. Pep's suspenders and bow tie are adorable!

    What really caught my attention though was Andrew has a bear tag?!!! I'm jealous!
