Easter



Easter Sunday... it was actually a lot of fun. Our boys woke up from their naps to find the Easter Bunny had come. He left them a Spiderman and Cars basket and a note saying they needed to find the eggs he had lost along the way. That led them to their big Easter egg hunt of 5 eggs a piece. It's funny... when "hiding" eggs for a one and two year old you have to make sure they are "hidden" in very obvious places. The upside is we found all 10 eggs. I remember growing up and every single year we never found as many as my dad hid. We had a huge ole lawn and we would link hands as a family and cross the whole lawn trying to find the one or two missing eggs but never could come up with all of them. One thing I continue to find entertaining is how, as parents, we're all excited and in the end it is only a 15 minute episode!


So in all these pictures, Porter, as always, looks super serious like he won't smile. In reality, he is saying cheese and trying to pose for the camera. I think another gene he got from his momma is his unphotogenic nature. Dang it. He really is a cute kid and has been so much fun this last month or so. His little personality is shining through and he is just a riot!

SO true about hiding the eggs taking forever and the finding part only taking 10 min. But, sure is worth it. YOU & Pistol always look super cute in your pics. So, I give you a big whatever Gay! You're one hot chick!

Gabe- I was so excited to get a note from you! Your little boys are so adorable. Jess told me you guys were friends with Brooke. That is awesome. Can I put you on our friends list? When are you guys coming to town again?

Seriously cute pictures! We took zero pictures of Norah on her first Easter, and also did zero Easter celebrating...unless going to church counts...? Bad Mommy, I know.

Good to hear that your new place is just fabulous! We'll have to take a beach trip and come by sometime!
