Pre-Easter Celebration

After watching the Drake basketball game with Grandma and Grandpa (who came up from IA for Easter weekend), Alex took a nap. Little did she know, when she awoke the entire house would be filled with crazy relatives and friends! We decided to host dinner for everyone who was still in town and could make it down through the snow- Grandma, Grandpa, Auntie Rorie, Uncle Willy, Great-Auntie Debbie and Great-Uncle Danny came down from the Northland with Zach, and Eddie & Jackie brought little Aiden, and our good friend Brad decided to brave my crazy family and join us.
Dave did a fantastic job grilling burgers and onions, and keeping up with the demand for food-- we had an enjoyable evening visiting and showing off our respective babies :-)
Alex joined all the grown-ups at the big table for dinner, and entertained herself very well. There were so many people to watch and conversations to interrupt!
Then we dyed Easter Eggs with two professionals-- Rorie and Danny showed us all up with their intricate and complex designs! Alexandra was watching for a while, but soon lost interest-- maybe next year it will be more engaging for her.

The eggs, however, are STUNNING!
