Happy Easter! The Finale

After church Sunday morning, we headed over to the Ford's house for some good food and some egg hunting. Mrs. Myra is Hollee's mom. Hollee and I met when she was pregnant with her triplets and have been friends ever since. My kids LOVE Mrs. Myra. Whenever I tell them we are going to see Marlee, Lilly, and Beau, they say "Is Mrs. Myra gonna be there too?!" So they were very excited to go over to her house! The kids enjoyed playing in the backyard on the swing set and the bounce house, and after lunch it was time for the Easter egg hunt. There were eggs EVERYWHERE. So the kids loaded up there baskets and couldn't wait to dive into all the candy! There was also a surprise visit from three baby chicks which the kids just adored. So here are some pics from our fun afternoon.

*Warning: There are more pics of Charlie than the big kids, they were just way to busy hunting eggs to be bothered to stop and take some pictures with dear old Mom and Dad!*

Happy Easter! Pt. 2

Easter morning, the kids woke up to see that the Easter Bunny had left them a serious stash of goodies. We hid each basket in a different spot so we could watch each on of them check out their special treats. Charlie was up first and could have cared less. Up next was Carter and he was super pumped. He took out every single item and inspected each one very carefully. By the time it was Ella and Hudson's turn, they were over it and ready to get out their stuff. So here are some pics from Easter morning!

What the Easter Bunny left! They each got an animal visor, a Dr. Seuss book and movie, shovel and pail, and a few candies.

Happy Easter! Pt. 1

We are back up and running around and enjoying the AWESOME weather! The kids and I have been spending every waking moment outside playing, so the ol' blog has really been neglected. But I have a bunch of new posts ready to go so hopefully over the next week or so, I'll be able to get caught up!

We had a great Easter this year. Our weekend was filled with fingernail painting, egg decorating, egg basket hunts, egg hunts, and fun with friends. Our kids are still a little young to get what Easter is actually about. We went to church and talked about it, but they are still not quite able to comprehend. They are still trying to grasp that baby Jesus (Christmas Jesus), grows up to be a man. Very interesting conversations! So here are some the pics from our jam packed holiday!
