|Miss Molly Marie|
10 months old
4 teeth, babbling,
crawling and cruising around furniture
eating solids and drinking from a cup
Still on the small size at 16 pounds
The kids had Good Friday off school
so 'the girls' came over to color eggs
|It's hard to tell what this little one has ever done before.|
If she did color eggs before she forgot because it was all new to her
and fun to watch
Had to include Miss Molly of course
(I peeled it first)
|These two are best friends to spite their 4 year age difference|
Mess one down
Time to let the eggs dry
Time to make some sugar cookies
|Ella always with the bunny ears|
|These two are truly like sisters|
fighting all the time
Make them pink
Make them blue
|Oh those redheads always with the hair in their faces|
|Definitely sure she never made sugar cookies before|
Mess two down
While the cookies cooled
they decorated their eggs
Now time to clean the table for lunch
Yes, it was only lunch time
One of my kindergarten classroom tricks
They all loved it
and it's not like Papa is using it lately
We missed Wyatt and Piper but thought we would spend the next day
with them at the kids' church sponsored Easter egg hunt.
|Ready to go.|
Now we just need to add coats
|The egg hunt was originally scheduled for the week end before|
but this was our weather. Tom took this picture at 'work'
He is a tournament official for Ripken Baseball and
gets to watch kids play baseball each week end.
It was a little chilly still.
Mostly the wind was a pain
The not only had egg 'hunts' they had horse back riding
|Ella was an old hand on the horse. |
She has ridden before for therapy
for her mitochondria
|Sami was cold so Mommy took off her own sweater and gave it to her.|
They also had farm animals the kids could pet
|When she first came to us she didn't even know what a picture of a duck was.|
Now she gets to see all kinds of animals
|She called it Brutus (our English Bulldog's name)|
|They got to feed this one apples|
Then it was time for the egg hunts.
Not much of a hunt
but they did get to pick up some eggs with candy
|Jack and Sami were in the same age group|
We ran into Wyatt and Piper
but they were with their nuther (according to Piper, she's so cute) Grandma
and cousins.They looked like they were having a great time too.
We all DID get together
for a little egg hunt (where they had to HUNT for their eggs) and dinner
We got the girls their outfits again.
I don't start out meaning to
but I just can't seem to help myself
|Miss Molly didn't get a scooter and basket.|
She got a piano and some chocolate rice cakes
|She seemed to like the rice cake|
Then we went downstairs for the egg hunt
|Counting them. Everyone had the same amount.|
|Except Ella had three LARGE ones filled with bigger kids stuff|
|She really liked that rice cake|
|One of his was missing so we had to give him a special treat.|
|She REALLY liked that rice cake|
|Maybe a little too much candy?|
|Did I mention she really liked that rice cake?|
|Mystery peeps. You didn't know what flavor until you tasted them.|
Whose idea was it to give them all silly string, Jennifer?!
One of the selling points to us for this house was the parking lot right next to our house
at the end of the street. All four of those cars you see belong to our family.
|Leave it to Jack to find a sick|
|It's empty :(|
|Then Ella was so tired.|
Ready to go to dinner
|Lily and Wyatt|
Our Silly ones
After dinner Wyatt and Piper and their parents went to their nuther grandparents for supper and everyone else came back to our house. It seems like the Easter bunny came to our house while we were at dinner since there was no time before church for the Easter bunny to come. He even left the girls' baskets at our house.
|Molly didn't have to look far for hers|
|and even a rolling backpack just like 'A's|
How did the Easter Bunny know?
|A big stuffed Easter Bunny for A|
We tried to get her to name him
but she just didn't get the concept
So his name is Easter Bunny
|Too cool to look excited|
|Stop showing off|
We know you can read the instructions on the box
The day ended with a little scare
Thomas and Ella went out and were hit,
pretty hard, from behind
Enough to total it.
They are now a two van family
WE ARE TRULY BLESSED!
