Our Easter Weekend

I like Easter but it's not one of those Holidays I get totally amped up for like Halloween. The only tradition we have is going out to my Aunts for an Easter egg hunt. Which is totally fun! We were talking about it while we were out there and we have been doing this for a long time - since I was little!

The twins had so much fun hunting for eggs. Each of the kids got to find 16 eggs or so, Jaelee filled her basket in no time. She is a great egg finder. She then got to help Jayse & Jayden find theirs. After all the eggs were found we got to hang out, outside, which doesn't happen a lot these days because of this cold weather we've been having. The twins rolled down the hill, threw their new pokey balls, played in rocks and had fun chasing the big kids around. When things were winding down and it was time to leave, they didn't want to go.
Ok to the pictures.........
On Sunday we had a big Easter breakfast and then colored eggs.  The twins were so cute this year coloring eggs.  We made some good ones.  You can see Greg's egg on the side of my blog.  I loved it so much I decided it can hang around on the blog for a while.


 We had a quick Easter egg hunt in our yard.  They both found a lot of eggs.

Jaelee helped me peel the eggs.  She did one all by herself.  She cracked it and peeled the whole thing.  We were both very proud.

Happy Easter

This year we decided to do Easter pictures. I tried the twin's first Easter and it turned into a disaster so last year I passed on the pictures. This year since Brandi has Jayden we decided to try again with all 3. I got really excited and went a little overboard on props.  Thank goodness for the dollar store.

We did it this past weekend since we have a lot going on in the coming weeks before Easter. I took a few of the twins in their Easter outfits and then I took some of just Jayden.  Then we did a group photo of all three.  I thought it would be easier if they were all in baskets - that way they had to stay put.  We dressed them up as bunnies.  Anywho here is an early Easter treat.

My Sweet Boy

I finally got some pictures of Jayse, while I was taking Easter pictures of the twins & Jayden.  I thought he deserved his own post before I show the Easter pictures.  He had this blue shirt on that just made his eyes look so blue.  He made a lot of funny faces and they were all cute but I also managed to get a few of his adorable smile.  So here are a few of my favorites.

And this one is probably my favorite.  I love his goofy little face.
