Easter 2009 was bittersweet for us this year. Although we had a WONDERFUL Easter holiday at home, my grandmother (my dad's mom) is in the hospital and will be passing away shortly. She has blessed our family in so many ways and we are sad that she will be leaving us.
Saturday evening the kids dyed their eggs.....3 dozen eggs waiting to be decorated Tishendorf style!
Ryan and Tyler were the first ones up (6am...not including Sarah who woke all of the kids at exactly 4:33am, before she was quickly told by all her siblings GO BACK TO BED!!!)
Tori with our dog Koda, who desperately wanted to be put down so he could begin the Easter egg hunt.
Ryley trying to catch a few more zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz's while waiting for Brandon to come downstairs.
Sarah with her iTunes card....I see a lot of Raffi in her future! (Notice the egg stuck to the TV screen behind her!)
Up next was the Easter Egg hunt. There were 120 hidden eggs...1 golden egg for each child, plus 19 other eggs per child
Ryley found the $10 golden egg !!!! All the other golden eggs had $5!
After the egg hunt, we relaxed, the girls and I made a pineapple upside down cake and then we had a wonderful late lunch! The afternoon was filled with the boys and Matt playing video games, Tori and I reading, and Sarah and Tyler hanging out just taking it easy! We love our lazy day holidays as a family!!!
