The Annual Family Candy Scramble









i'm finally posting " The Outfits" for the ANNUAL Christensen Family Easter Picnic.

complete with pot luck picnic, and CANDY SCRAMBLE!

I'd call it an egg hunt but we dispensed with the eggs and just litter the ground with candy, wrapped and not chocolate or we'd have a chocolatey mess in the steamy AZ spring sunshine.


every year my mom puts on an Easter picnic for our extended family. Aunts , uncles, cousins, 2nd cousins, cousins once removed. it's a shin-dig!

sometimes it's the family reunion. and often it's the only time we see certain relatives.


I'm kind of obsessed with getting my kids matchy outfits to wear every year. the one or two times i haven't i was dissatisfied with the day.

When i busted out this number and showed the hubs he almost had a coronary thinking it was TOTALLY RIDICULOUS!

until...i explained it was just the one girl in this outfit.
so it's not THAT bad.


i thought it was cute.

and really my opinion is all that matters.


the other girls coordinated color wise.

Pierce had it down this year, and with the help of Dad he did awesome!

the best part about the annual easter picnic is all our favorite cousins are there.


Nate and Paxton

Will and Peyton

Garrett and Pierce

Liberty hangs with Katie every year only at the picnic- here is their annual pic.

And of course Maria Hannah, and Hope are besties.

after all the fun, i went for a pedicure with my Cousin Paula and my sisters Janie and Vicki.

of course i managed to ruin mine later that day. i had no idea that a row of rhinestones too so long to dry that they would move and crap up my pedicure 6 hours later when i put on my dancing shoes. sigh.
