More Easter Egg Hunting & Play 2013

What a special treat! After all the rainsorms Easter morning, we were so blessed to enjoy a sunny Easter afternoon. Paw Paw came over Easter Sunday for more Easter egg hunting...this time OUTSIDE! We hunted eggs again...and again...and again! Then Daddy, Paw Paw, Jax, and Noah flew Noah's toy airplane together.  Happy Easter!

Easter 2013~
This Easter was a rainy Easter! We barely made it to church on time because it was raining and hailing so hard! But, it's always special to be with all my family on Easter Sunday.  Especially since I think my dad will be retiring this coming Fall, it was an especially sweet Easter.  The songs at Easter always remind me of my mother.  Most of the songs we sing at Easter remind me of her.  "Christ the Lord is Risen Today" has always been the most difficult one to get through because that song was sung at her funeral.  At the same time, it is fitting.  Because my mom loved Easter, because they are the happiest songs---so it all fits, really!
He is Risen!
He is Risen, INDEED!
Happy Easter 2013!

Easter afternoon at Grampa's house

After Easter service at Grampa's church, we traveled to Grampa's house for Easter lunch with all the family and outdoor fun on Grampa's land. Noah and Jackson had so much fun riding on Grampa's mule. Grampa was so much fun!!! He drove the boys through the mud puddles and through the woods. Doesn't get much more fun than that for our boys!

Easter Egg Hunting 2013

Easter morning 2013 was a HUGE rainstorm! We entered church through big puddles! So, luckily, the Easter Bunny hid Easter eggs in our living room, so the boys enjoyed hunting eggs in the house before church.  They were so cute! I was so proud of Noah for sharing the egg-hunting process with Jax. He helped Jax find eggs and was a sweet brother.  How cute are they?

Jax in bunny ears

Jax, who usually likes nothing on his head or touching his hair---totally surprised us when we wanted to wear bunny ears while we were decorating Easter eggs! He kept smiling for the camera, saying, "Cheese!" What a funny boy! We never know what to expect at our house!

Easter baskets 2013

Our Easter baskets this year- 2013

The Easter bunny was good to Mommy & brought her a Coach bag! He knew just what I wanted!

And he brought Daddy some Shiner "Daddy water," as Noah calls it.

And the boys' baskets overflowed with a cornucopia of Easter treats---the biggest hit being the new train & truck DVDs.

Happy Easter 2013!

Easter Egg Decorating 2013

I love how all my boys (Daddy included) joined in our Easter egg decorating fun! Egg decorating has come a long way since when I was a kid! Pretty fun! It may sound silly to some folks, but setting traditions like this is something that I know my boys will remember for many years to come!

These are just a few pictures I took tonight of Easter egg decorating. The boys had SO much fun! And so did Mommy!!!
Jax was so funny with the bunny ears! He put them on & then said, "cheese!" After I took the picture, he said, "one more" (several times!)
LOVE my boys!!!
Happy Easter!
