Cadbury Mini Eggs are my kryptonite
This is my obligatory Easter post which will feature mostly pictures of the family. If you don't like looking at pictures of cute kids, stop reading now. My family's Easter tradition starts very early Saturday morning. This year, we decided to cut the recipe down slightly. We only made 12 pies; in the past we've made anywhere between 15-20.
We're training Grace to be the next Dough Master.
Getting instructions from Grandma. I also love the giant vat of Crisco in this picture.
Hannah was much more alert this time around.
Uncle Jimmy arriving
I hear Aria refuses to look at other, smaller cameras. She knows quality when she sees it.

Typical goofball James
The nieces and nephew were suddenly all in one place and looking vaguely in my direction.
It happened so fast, I didn't have a chance to clear off the table.
My brother Nick has taken on the roll of pie filler, which I think is the hardest job of all. Sure, he has great dough to work with, but it takes a lot of skill to fill each pie perfectly. Also notice his fantastic apron, which was one of my grandmother's.
Aria was a big fan of the pies
I even made it into a picture this year!

Easter Sunday was the egg hunt. Aria tried to hold as many as she could.
And then wanted to share with me.
James reaching for his egg
Hint: if you see the photographer crouched down on the ground somewhere, there is most likely an egg nearby.
Eventually, Grace found the egg!
