GiGi Came to Town!!

An unexpected surprise for us this year was that GiGi got to come to NC!! She was coming to pick up Jane and Cora Sue to go back to FL with her but because she's a great GiGi and doesn't mind being exhausted and driving all over the state, she came to see us too!

The kids were so excited that GiGi was coming and it was Olivia's first time meeting her in person. 
We have just talked to her on Skype since Livie came live with us. and in true GiGi fashion, she did lots of fun things with the kids. We saved coloring any eggs for her to handle and it was a good choice for this Mama who would have been stressed over all that dye and so many kids helping :)

After getting all the eggs colored, the Callaways came over for an egg hunt!

It's crazy to think that Cadence and Kagan have been hunting eggs together for as long as they've been able to hunt eggs. I hope that these two always stay such good friends. 

After they had found the eggs that Christa and I hid "hard" for them, they got to hide the eggs for their younger brothers and sisters. Cause ya know, that's what the "big kids" have to do :)

Playing while Cadence and Kagan hid the eggs for the littles to find. 

or not playing - sometimes things happen....

and then they were off!!  The hunt had begun...

and of course after hunting all those eggs, everyone HAD to try one to see if they tasted good :)

IN the middle of a really busy season for us "ministry" people, 
I am so grateful for a fun day with family.

One of my favorite things about this post... you dyed eggs in your china tea cups. :-)

So glad that Gigi could come visit the Andersens! Wish I could have been there too!

For the record, it was Mom's idea to use my china! At least she makes sure it gets some use since we had to waste all these wedding presents on plates :)
