Happy Easter!

Working for a church, you rarely have the luxury of celebrating holidays like Easter with your family. This was the first (and probably last for a while) time we've managed to get everyone together to celebrate Easter on the Gafford side. Though Addison's morning started off rough, (adjusting to a new church/toddler room after an hour drive to church), it got a whole lot better when her three big cousins arrived! We got a few shots of her in her Easter dress and then you'll see we quickly switched to play clothes for the real fun.

We decided to pull out an old Grandma Cox tradition of hiding the Easter baskets and giving each child a trail of yarn to follow to find it. We kept it pretty simple for the younger two, but made Emily and Lauren work a little harder for theirs! Here are all four girls lined up with their sticks and yarn ready to go find their treasures!

We had them spread out so no one's yarn would tangle. Addison kept yelling, "Hey everybody; over here!" I don't think she realized that the others were following their own yarn trails elsewhere.

Thank you Grandma for my Easter basket!
