Easter pictures!

Easter weekend was a lot of fun.
We had some friends (Tony and Mary) who live nearby come up and visit...
they brought their 4 wheelers (one is "Carter-sized")
and have left them in our care for the week!

I don't think this boy can stop smiling....



Wyatt was actually having fun.. you just can't tell it!
I boiled "some" (meaning a DOZEN) eggs to dye for Easter...
but then Bryan "remembered" blowing out the yoke of eggs with his Grandma when he was little....


So I left that up to him...




and the boys...

I wish I had gotten this a second later... Wyatt accidentally sucked in!!

Which left me with a DOZEN eggs in a huge bowl and LOTS of scrambled eggs the next day!
We dyed eggs on Friday night... and Mary helped Hayden put stickers on the eggs.

Carter even took a break from his Wii playing to decorate too.


As usual Hayden's the one who REALLY gets into it!
Although Wyatt HAD to do everything HIMSELF...
which was really tricky with the actual dying the egg part!
We gave the boys their Easter baskets on Saturday.. and idea I got from Holly's post the other day. It really helps separating the FUN of candy, eggs, baskets, Easter bunny with the REASON we celebrate Easter. Rejoicing in our Risen Saviour!

Hayden's basket....

Wyatt's basket


Carter's basket
On Easter we were in such a rush to get to church I forgot to get the boys picture BEFORE..
you never know what will be left AFTER!
So as soon as we got home I asked Bryan to take the boys picture while I got lunch ready...
This is what he got...
Oh.. and this... (notice Wyatt took off his shoe!!)
Fortunately his first picture was the best one!


Happy Easter.. He is RISEN and coming again!

That looks like so much fun!! (and a lot less hectic than decorating eggs with 19 3rd graders!!

Did your clippers break? Bryan's hair is awefully long!!

I'm not sure what made me laugh harder....the pics of the boys blowing the egg out...or your husband trying to get pics of all three of them!! So funny and so cute!
