Lots of eggs.
The Beauties colored 6 dozen eggs this year.
72 eggs.
1 1/2 dozen each.
Honestly, they would still be coloring eggs today if I kept putting eggs in front of them.
We ate deviled eggs, egg salad, egg whites, eggs on lettuce salads, eggs with toast, eggs for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
We ate a lot of eggs that week.  We even shared some.
But before we ate them, it took a lot of convincing.  You see the Beauties DID NOT want to destroy their masterpieces.  They wanted to keep them in the fridge and look at them every couple minutes, pointing out their favorites to everyone.
It was a little sad.  We had to have the talk about wasting food every time a shell was cracked.
I also bought several packs of dye tablets to break out on a rainy day.  They will be so happy.

The Beauties also had 2 Easter Eggs Hunts!
Plastic Eggs to their hearts content.

Beautiful Beauties at the Lake

We spent a sun filled afternoon at Lake MacBride.  The only thing missing...Chloe.
She was in school...we cannot wait for summer vacation!

Happy Birthday x four

 The birthday beauties.
We decided to have a joint party this year so that we could have a BIG bash.
It was a GREAT decision.  All the beauties and their guests had a fabulous time.
 Jocelyn, Chloe, Molli, Farrah and Silvie
 Silvie showing how she floats and kicks.  
She loves the water, I think she may be a mermaid.

 Farrah and Haley sitting in the "hot pool"
The beauties love the "hot pool" they spent a lot of time in it.  Which is strange to me, 
because I remember thinking the hot tub was too hot when I was a kiddo.

 Jocelyn and Molli wading.

 Oh Farrah.....

 Chloe finally comes out of the water for a picture.  YEAH!
She was nonstop under water the entire party.  So proud of her new tricks.
 Happy Birthday...take 1
 Happy Birthday...take 2
 Happy Birthday...take 3
Happy Birthday...take 4

Yes, we do sing happy birthday to EACH one of them separate.  When you share a birthday with your sisters, it is only fair that you get your own special song.  With only YOUR name sung in it.
It's much more fun that way.
I cannot believe my little babies are 8 and 5.
Time flies by.
