Mine are all snaps, and I left the camera in the car so it went with DH to work today. Sad

Katie! These are AWESOME!!!! You have to tell me how you did the silk tie dyed eggs!

I don't have any pics from Easter, but I do have some from 'egg day' (the day that Logan and I made our Easter eggs). This is a big deal in our house and every year we work on a theme and try to out-do what we did the year before. I don't know how we're going to top this year's eggs though. Biggrin




Best,

Those are so clever Gigi. Did you guys do this out of scratch?
Katie - looked like you guys had a great easter! I took some snaps of my kiddos but nothing fancy.

Gigi, those are SO awesome!

Here are the only shots I got. I've been really bad about taking photos lately. It's so hard when the baby can't sit up on his own yet. I hate to burden people by asking them to help me set up photogenic situations. I also don't have any time for post processing these days so these are all pretty close to SOOC. Just a tiny bit of Lightroom work to get the colors right.

James got his final cast removed on Thursday. This is his new setup...the boots and bar...that he will wear 24/7 for 3 months.

Katie, that picture of Sully swinging is perfect! Love it Smile

Awesome eggs GiGi!! We didn't get a chance to this weekend Sad I think we're still going to do them this week though Wink

Look how big he's getting, Amber! So glad that he's out of his casts now. My brother wore the brace when he was a baby. He turned out great Smile

Amber, James is soo cute!

Literally ALL I have are snaps.

My girls and their cousins - couldn't get one with all 4 looking:

And other cousins after church, after their egg hunt...out of focus, dappled light, etc etc ...such is life ;)!

And on Friday dd got a new dress in the mail - we did a quick little photo shoot:

This is what we saw all day from Jackson: Stuffing his face with candy.

And some "proper" photos of the boys that I took before Easter. And good thing I did, too. They pretty much destroyed their outfits with stains Wink

Amber your boys are waay too cute! I can't believe Nathan is so big now. He must be tall for his age. And James is TOO adorable!

Statechick - your girls are too cute. Love how they are all hurdled together eating sweets!

Stephanie - I like the matching outfits! I try and do that with my kiddos too but DH get's mad - lol. And holy COW on that chocolate bunny!

The boys love to match each other. Today, they had to wear the same Mickey Mouse shirts that they have. DH surprisingly doesn't care. Now if I tried to get us all matching shirts...that would be another story Wink

Katie - how do you make the silk tie eggs?

Gigi - egg day sounds fun and I love your theme.

Amber - your pics have me missing summer already

Statechick - I love the dress!

Steph - your boys are as cute as ever. That bunny is almost as big as Jackson's head.

I haven't uploaded easter pics yet because we've been busy. Why? This Easter we got..........

El - we did do our eggs from scratch (well ... I did buy a dye kit, but the actual decorations were just a combination of googly eyes, felt, card stock and whatever else we could find around the house to make them look as much like the video game as possible.

Amber ... I love seeing your boys together. I hope James is getting used to his brace.

Candace ... love seeing your girls and their cousins - reminds me of my group of girl cousins growing up! I hope they have many more memories like this to carry them through life! TFS!

Stephanie ... love that you got a family photo! I am lucky to get one a year. Smile And Jackson is just too cute w/ those bunny ears! I love seeing your boys - they seem so full of life - it must be contagious!

Gemma ... your pup is SO ADORABLE! And your nephew too - how can you handle all that cute at once?!

Thanks Tracy ... the eggs were not nearly as hard as I expected them to be. Just have fun! Smile

Best,
GiGi

If you google silk tie eggs there are lots of tutorials. Basically, you cut up 100% silk ties (I bought some a GoodWill for $1-2 each) and wrap an unboiled egg in it with the print side down. Then you wrap cotton around it (I used an old white t-shirt) and boil the eggs in water with 1/4 cup vinegar for 20-30 minutes. WHen I did them last year, I wrapped them with string to help push the fabric against and egg and it definitely worked better than this year not using string.

I have some, but I am at work, and I they are on my home computer. Sad Bummer.

Katie- loving the fish photo and I adore the idea of dump trucks as their basket! My friend did the silk tie dyed eggs too. They were cute!
GiGi- I am SURE those will be on Pinterest before too long! SOOOOO CUTE!
Amber- holy cow James is growing! Glad he got his cast off! Keep us posted ok?
Candace- Love the cousins pic. I wish I would have thought to get all our little cousins together on Easter.
Gemma- I got a new nephew too! What a blessing!
Stephanie- loving the family photo. I tried, but it was a FLOP!

Oh, I want to join. Smile I'm a little late because I've been working a lot this week, blah. Mine are just snaps too, but that's okay.

My babies Smile

This one has a story.. My speedlite failed to fire and so my picture was almost all black, but it was the only picture like this where he was even remotely looking at me and all that. So I played with it in lightroom to see what I could retrieve from it. It came out all grainy, but I thought it was still cute. It looks like I did some weird processing with it or something, haha.

The IL's got him some big bubbles in his easter basket:

He got a little carried away with his Easter meal. And you can barely see it in this pictures, but he's wearing mardi gras beads. He found them and loved playing with them so much, he wouldn't take them off, LOL.

One that my DH took of me and DS1:

One of DH and the little man. If only he had been looking at me!

Late here too. Been so busy and then my stinking work blocked my flickr! ARRR!

My new PRECIOUS nephew. 10lbs, 8 oz! :O

This one cracks me up. She was the only one who cared about finding the eggs! Kind of wished she had another hand though....

My crazy family. Ruthie has some goofy grin, Randy NEVER looks, Randall looks mad, and I am in the process of saying something, but hey, we are TOGETHER!
