Lots of pictures in this one guys sorry! We spent Saturday morning with Amy's family.(Since her blog is private I will refer to her boys by their first initial only.) I love love love being so close to such an amazing sister, and all the fun we have and the friendship that we have. She is great with my Leland and patient with me... always a plus! I told her I didn't really get anything for Leland and when we got to her house there was a basket ready for him. As you can see below he LOVED it...
He has one half eaten cadbury egg in his mouth and two (one big and one small) cradled in one hand while he is deciding what to do with a candy bracelet.
M made this cool "camo egg" Amy and I realized on Thursday that we didn't get any pictures of the egg dying... I think Amy at least got one of the eggs and dye on the table to prove that we had done it:D
We emptied out the baskets into the white bags to use the baskets for egg hunting
E came to ask Brian for some assistance with a glider that he got in his basket
The 4 older boys with their baskets
Leland showing his candy off
All six of them together
Z is always happy!
Mike helped E find eggs. Each boy could find 15 plastic eggs and 10 hard boiled... that should tell you how many we dyed and filled. Amy and I had filled the plastic ones with loose change rather than "filler candy" this year because it never gets eaten anyway.
Z may be happy but he isn't the most observant little guy:D
The older boys were told they had to look higher first and C shows off the monkey in him... The two littlest got to scour the ground first to see what they could find.
I so wonderfully cut out the egg that was perched on the fence but Z is reaching for it...
N counted his eggs numerous times since they had a limit. This is totally him... wanted to make sure he followed the rules.
Michael had just discovered that the plastic eggs held loose change
I adore these pictures of Leland... so there are a few of them
C decided to check the slide with his bum:D
Leland started out on the trampoline... Amy was a little dismayed as the backyard wasn't the best place to have an egg hunt... but I think it worked out swimmingly!
So cute Brian and Leland working together
Finally found one on his own
E climbed with the assistance of Mike to retrieve the eggs from the climbing wall!
Brian couldn't resist helping
Amy's cute new cut... She and I took pictures of the whole thing
Counting the loot... I think all the boys got at least $10 dollars from this maybe less... but still a good deal of change adds up....
We had a blast being together as a family and Uncle Mike reminded us of the true reason for Easter. Christs resurrection and his love for us, He died so that we may live again. How grateful I am for that knowledge.
