The girls painting the sun catchers they got as a good behavior bribe from Target (aka the promised land) when they had to come to "work" with mommy one day for a few hours. I had to put this picture of Mamie on here because she looks just like her daddy in it. She actually painted hers all by herself--I really couldn't believe it.
I just loved this picture--they were watching the big storm from their bathroom window. Lilly is showing off the best $4 I have ever spent at a consignment sale. She hardly had it off her body the first week she had it. I think aunt Kim may need to teach us some ballet moves (hint hint)! Mommy is seriously lacking in the coordination and grace department.
Cousin Hollis turns the big ONE
Lilly and Mamie love their cousin. Mamie prays for him to grow almost every night. I think it's working :)
the birthday boy
Aunt Kim and Uncle Zach with the cake-eating machine. I have really never seen a kid eat that much of their birthday cake. He loved it!
Lilly's Class Easter PartyShe insisted on wearing her bunny ears to school and actually kept them on all day.
The Easter Bunny hopped by for a visit!
This is one of my favorite things about Easter. I can vividly remember picking out my kit at the store every year when I was little--it was always a major decision. The little shrink wrappers with pictures on them, the white crayons you could make designs with, the stickers, the swirly ones...I would get them out of the refrigerator to look at them every day. I have so many good memories of Easter and I hope my girls will too.
waiting patiently for the eggs to finish boiling
so excited to finally have some eggs in the bowls!
painting glitter on eggs is serious work
The finished product. We lost a couple of green ones along the way. Needless to say, I ate a LOT of egg sandwiches last week.
