Easter recap

Pray each of you had a blessed Easter. We enjoyed time with family and friends, and Eyasu hunted his first eggs! Sweet thing grabbed one, it opened, his candy fell down and he spent the next few minutes putting the candy back in the egg while the other kids were running circles around him! :)

I can't post the video, reveals entirely too much of my competive nature! Seriously listening to myself trying to convince him to throw the egg in his basket to get on with the mad dash for MORE is painful........ugg, Lord please continue to prune me and refine my heart! And the boys said they would quit speaking to me because if you were over the age of 8-- you had to SKIP to get your eggs! Good times were had by all!

Tee and Wick in mid-skip! Melissa in the back knocking kids out of the way to get more candy! :) JK, she generously provided the many eggs.
Hill in full on skip, devised a strategy that allowed him to use both hands apparently!
How precious is this one with his basket of eggs??
Abey and daddy!

looks like a BLAST. it may sound stalkerish, since we haven't met and all, but your family is really precious to me.

So much fun! Next year, though, we might be filling some of the eggs with dental floss. We're all sick as dogs over here from all the sugar. I mean, the kids. The kids have had too much...

Oh Em, everyone is so beautiful! But seriously, HIll, are you kidding me?! Stop growing. What happened to that little four year old I used to chase around playing hide and seek. Miss you all and love you!

Your family is the best. Honestly - I love your pictures. Handsome boys and beautiful little girls!

Love the bit about the videos :) It's amazing how much you learn about yourself when you can hear your life played back to you :) Funny, funny!

Love the family pic as well!

You have a beautiful family!

Amy said...

We solved the competitive nature of egg hunts by giving every kid their own color. Then you can hide the in appropriately difficult places for their age. One year my son needed a ladder to get one off of the roof.
