Happy Easter!!!

We woke up Easter morning and waited on Easton to wake up.  It isn't good to wake him!  Olivia was very patient, but may have made some loud noises to help get him awake faster.  Olivia could hardly wait to see what the Easter bunny brought her!  

He saw his truck and went to pull it out,  The whole basket fell over and he pulled out his new pj's and seemed quite pleased with them!

She LOVED her new Peppa shirt!!  

He got a helmet!  No, not to wear all the time.....though that might help him.  However, it is age 3-5 and doesn't fit his fat melon!

Ready to swim!

Three years ago I made these on Easter morning and it has become a tradition that this is breakfast on that morning.  

After church, mom and dad came to get a picture of us.  I was wrangling Easton and mom got this great shot of Olivia.  

.....And this is the best we got.  

After Easton napped, it was off to Mammy's house for the egg hunt, baskets, and dinner.  This girl looks like she is on a mission.  

It was a great effort, but this was the best we got of all 4.  Loads of funny out takes!

I love how excited she was this year.  She truly appreciated each and everything that she received.  If nothing else, I want her to be appreciative!

He was so excited about each and everything he got!  

During the egg hunt, there was a big kid section and a little kid section.  Notice Easton hunting.....

4 eggs.....happy with his loot.  

Off to play! He was done with the egg hunt.   

 Adeline was yelling, Easton come on!  She had the section to herself!  

Once the big girls finished up, Annelyn came over to the little kid section to see if anything was missed.  

Look at how handsome!  Even he got some eggs in his basket!

Now time for them to go and check out their loot!  It was a great day!!!

Spring Break and Easter fun

This year, we were off for spring break the week before Easter.  We had Easter at Johns' mom's last Sunday and also celebrated his sister's birthday.  The kids had a great time playing and having an egg hunt.

We didn't do anything grand this week, but spent a lot of time together.  Which really, I guess that is pretty grand!!  My sister was in town Sunday, Monday and Tuesday so the kids got to play together quite a bit and we just hung out at mom's.

These two have become quite close.  Easton loves "Aline." (Adeline)

Olivia had been at gymnastics and Annelyn went to go watch.  We grilled out and then they dyed eggs!

Oscar wasn't very impressed with egg dying.  He wanted more burger!

Leslie took Annelyn and Olivia on a "big sister" date.  The three of them are each the 'big sister' for their family, so she felt that they should do something together.  Olivia had the brilliant idea of going to get their nails done.  They had a blast!!!!

Apparently the water changed colors.  They thought that was really neat.  

My ticklish little one.  Leslie said she was laughing hysterically.  I don't doubt it.  

Growing up too fast!

Unfortunately, I spent the bulk of the week sickly with tonsillitis, but feel so much better now with some medicine.  I started break with pink eye, and figure it all ran together.  Wednesday was my worst day.  I only got out of bed to take the kids for Easter pictures.  They were hilarious!  The first time we did duck and bunny pictures with Olivia we laughed because she grabbed them by the neck to hold them.  This was Easton's first time to have bunny and duck pictures.  He would pick them up around their eyes and the small space up to the top of their little heads.  Then he would throw them---yep, I said, THROW them into the creek.  He laughed hysterically to the point of drooling.  It was funny, but then I got worried the poor ducks would be dead the next day.  Fortunately they made it!  I checked.  :)  Olivia held a sweet floppy ear bunny and had it laid on its back.  He was so relaxed in her arms.  She loved snuggling him and loving on him.  I can't wait to see how the pictures turned out.  Tanya always does an amazing job!

Friday Olivia, mom and I went shopping.  I think this is a first for the 3 of us since Easton has been home.  I am looking forward to more fun days like that in our future!
Last night we painted some eggs and tonight we dyed some.  I think they turned out pretty good!  I love the little face on one of the eggs.

Tonight we had our glow in the dark egg hunt.  The kids had a blast.
