Easter 2012 Edition

I’m still here! No baby yet. Woot Woot!


I just took a gander over to this post and holy moly!! Harper has changed so much since last Easter.

We had a wonderful Easter weekend with lots of family and food, as usual.

Friday night my sis and bro-in-law came to visit us. We were very excited because we haven’t seen them since before Christmas. Who knew it would be so hard to get together when you live only 2.5 hours away?!?

Saturday afternoon we headed over to Grandma Bedke’s for the big Saturday Easter celebrations.

Harper was very excited to see her cousin Jaden and ran over to see him {and help him eat his lunch} as soon as we got there.IMG_0540


Vanessa and Joe helped me decorate eggs. Harper wasn’t all that interested this year. {yes….terrible lighting. although they do look like angels :)}



And while we were decorating eggs, Harper and Jaden were getting in a few hugs…



Aunt Addie helped Harper get all decked out for Easter. Very cute!IMG_0550


Aunt Vanessa and Uncle Joe headed back to Rexburg just before the extreme egg hunt. We didn’t want them to leave, but they insisted that they couldn’t just stay and play with us all week. We think their priorities are a lil mixed up! :)



And then the egg hunt began. Harper LOVED running around picking up eggs and putting them in her basket. She knew exactly what to do. It was so fun watching her get all excited. 




Showing off the loot in her basket. These aren’t even half of the pictures. It was hard to choose because they were all so cute. She kept making the silliest facial expressions. Harper scored just over $12 and tons of yummy candy to share with mommy and daddy! Thank you Great Grandma Bedke!



On Easter morning, Harper woke up {or more accurately stated…was woken up by daddy} to a couple gifts from the Easter Bunny. He brought her a pail and shovel {to collect her rocks in…of course} and some sidewalk chalk. Daddy took her outside for a minute to shovel up some rocks in her pail and she thought it was great. She spent the rest of the morning walking around the house with her pail.



This was the best picture I could get of Harper in her Easter dress. She was refusing to sit/stand still and look at the camera. I just love her dress. {THANK YOU KRISTEN!!!!}



And this is what happened when we forced her to sit still and look at the camera. Our poor child! These pictures are priceless...probably some of my favorites, in fact.April1


After church, we went over to Ryan’s parent’s house. While we were preparing dinner, Harper, Daddy, Jaden, Uncle Jesse and Aunt Brooke played outside with Harper’s new chalk. {And Harper may or may not be trying to push Jaden over in the far left picture…poor Jaden!}


And then we devoured a delicious meal of ham, twice baked potatoes, veggies, salad, deviled eggs and rolls {YUMMY!}, in which Harper was practically falling asleep while chewing her food due to the lack of naps. It was pretty hilarious! I wish I would have grabbed my camera…but I couldn’t leave my plate of food {I’m pregnant, remember!}.


{yes…I’m hilarious}

So fun! Her dress made me cry. I'm such a goofball. But she is so cute in it and I love the grouchy pictures of her too. I noticed that her complexion is so beautiful. She's like a porcelain doll. And she's gotta have the best pigtails ever. I love your posts. Good luck with your baby!
