Easter and Aubrey's Birthday Party

Last Saturday the kids and I boiled and dyed our Easter eggs. Cody received a fun Easter egg kit from a specialist at work that kept us entertained.
Sunday morning Tucker woke up Aubrey and Cole so that they could begin their Easter Egg hunt. They each had a basket and found the eggs hidden around our house. Even Cole was in on the action. He crammed candy in his mouth and set off to find some eggs.

We celebrated Aubrey's 3rd birthday on Sunday with all of our extended family that lives in town. We had 21 people for Easter dinner and to celebrate! Aubrey was a doll and loved everything!
I asked her if I could take her picture and she told me that she wanted one with Grandpa!
Cole was getting flying lessons.
I'm making a family history scrapbook and needed an updated picture of Cody and I - not too shabby!
Aubrey was spoiled and had a great time opening all her gifts. Earlier in the week she told me that she wanted to open her presents all by herself - that translates to mean "No help from Tucker!"
The kids love Dora the Explorer and luckily I have a friend that lives close by that let us borrow her Dora cake pan. I'm glad I didn't have to shape her by myself. I had fun decorating her though. Of course, Aubrey noticed that her shorts weren't orange - I thought purple would match her pink shirt better - I mean come on Dora, you typically wear pink shirts, orange shorts and yellow socks? Not on my cake!

This is Aubrey and her cousin Halle. They are only 1 month apart and had fun playing with her new toys all evening.
And if you are blowing up the pictures and are noticing Aubrey's eye, yes - she does have a black eye. She literally ran into her friend Kate Thursday night.
Aubrey's real birthday was yesterday and we celebrating by eating at McDonald's last night. Every kids dream!
