Busy, Busy, Busy.

|Kissing, not choking. I think.|
|Maybe they hid them under the couch?!|

Next on the agenda: Coloring Eggs.
Easter morning brought a whole new day filled with several activities. First things first, finding Easter baskets and eggs!
|This kid LOVES presents!|
|Girl on a mission!|
|Checking out the loot!|
|A little early for Daddy.|
Next stop was church. Yes, we do remember the real meaning of the day even though we like to do it up big with presents and egg hunts! Carter and Paige went to their Sunday School rooms and Matt and I were joined by his parents for a nice service. It was nice to be back at church but don't worry, I didn't stand for all of the singing.
Right after church we dropped by Mimi and Dado's. We usually go to Easter Brunch but had to skip this year because we weren't trying to put me into labor! First thing that happens is the kids get their baskets and presents.

|The rules for the hunt.|
It's very important to know what happens next. The kids get their baskets first so they will be entertained while the real egg hunt begins. I don't know why or how this tradition started but I like it. A lot. My Dad heads to the bank to gets lots of cash and puts random amounts ranging from $1.00 bills to $100.00 bills in eggs. This is my moment. I may be small but I will knock people down to get my 15 eggs before anyone else. I wait for this. I'm pretty sure this event could have been terrible for my situtation. This was going to be a problem. I needed eggs. Thankfully, my brilliant Mom decided that they would put all the eggs together and randomly draw 15 eggs to give to me while the others ran around. Not quite the same, but worked for me. Let me tell you, it really worked! I scored all the big bills and ended up with $296.00! Sweet. Of course, my sister, in true sister fashion, immediatly accused my parents of cheating and giving me "pity money." I don't think that is the case... but even if it was, I'm good with it;) I love being the big winner!
The kids eggs hunt is outside and their eggs are filled with candy. There are about a million eggs out there. It was an interesting strategy this year. Paige took one look at the boys and went in the opposite direction. She was methodical in her gathering. You know what they say, slow and steady wins the race.
Carter and Cruz went together. Carter was all about showing Cruz where the eggs were. As if he needed help.
The annual group shot of the kids was next.
|See, I'm sitting.|
|Don't forget Jagger James. He was there!|
Needless to say, everyone was in bed early. I didn't have the baby. Good day for all!
Oh, and I almost forgot. The bunny didn't forget Mama:
|Not a necessity but a total must-have.|
|New golf shoes for a new season.|
|If he is going to golf, he better look good doing it.|
Hope you had a great Easter as well.
|This egg is about cooked!|
