Easter Fun

We had a great Easter at our house! The Easter Bunny made three stops for our family.
One stop was in Heber at Grandma and Grandpa Briggs' house. We sure had a lot of fun. Ella was really good at finding the hidden prizes. Dean's favorite part was picking up the candy, then throwing it so he could pick it up and then "find" it again. Elysee was Grandma's buddy and held her hand the whole time.

The next stop was at Nana and Papa Eisenhart's house. There were fun Easter baskets and lots of candy filled eggs.

Last but not least the Easter Bunny stopped at our house. What a crazy morning! John didn't get home from work until 9:00 AM. (We were going on vacation at 10:00 AM) The kids just couldn't wait to play with their fun things from the Easter Bunny. They all got gardening things, because they love to play outside in the dirt. Everyone got a few outfits, and lots of candy. Ella and Ely received Disney Princess Barbies, and Dean got a Buzz Light Year action figure (although Dean and Ely ended up swapping toys). They were making big fun messes while we loaded up the car to head to DISNEYLAND! That Easter Bunny sure is smart, he even knew to put Disney type presents in the Easter baskets. (I just went to upload pictures of this and I didn't even take any!!! - It really was a busy morning)

We need your help - and BIG NEWS

Many of you will remember the photo contest we entered Ella in a couple of years ago where she won first prize (thanks to many of you who voted for her). We have entered the twins (Dean and Elysee) in a local photo contest on the radio. The prize is to win a dream nursery and free diapers for a year.

You may ask "Why would they want that when their babies are 20 months old?" Well, we can actually use it because WE ARE EXPECTING A BABY BOY IN SEPTEMBER!!!!! Yes, it's true we will have 4 kids ages 3 and under, needless to say, it really would help to have everyone vote so we can have the free diapers and nursery.

This time there are 2 rounds - the top 10 will move onto the "finals" and there will be another round of voting. It's really easy and quick to do. Here are the directions...

Just click on this link and vote for #84

If you have never been on that radios website you will need to "register". When you put in your e-mail address it will say that an error occurred, click where it says to try again, then click where it says to register for the first time. I know it's annoying to do, but we would REALLY appreciate it!

Here is their picture (this way you don't have to go through all of them)

The first round of voting ends at noon on April 22nd - yes that is in 1 and 1/2 days!!!

Please forward (or repost this on your own blog) so we can get into the finals. There are 777 entries, our chances are slim, but it's worth a shot.

Thanks everyone for your support!
