I love Easter!  The Earth is coming back to life, weather's getting warm, and a wonderful day to focus on the Savior and His Resurrection! We had a wonderful day going to church, finding Easter baskets, enjoying the afternoon and dinner with good friends, the Malones, and loving a chance to Skype with the cousins and extended family in the evening.  Couldn't ask for a better day!

 Tucker had an Easter egg hunt at school on Friday.  We all went to watch and Cooper actually got to help and have treats in his class afterwards!  Love little schools! :)

Trying to get a picture of the kids in their cute Easter clothes... this is the best we got.  The second one just makes me laugh.  Somehow during the picture taking process, Rudy thought he'd get better smiles out of the kids by giving them ipods and phones.  Kyla: "Mom, Really? Can't you see I'm texting??" 

 Cooper found his basket!  T-ball bat! Yess!

 Finding the eggs, then celebrating the spoils by swinging!

 Made my first official ham- with funeral potatoes and jello salad, of course. :)  Turned out not too shabby! Then we were able to Skype with my family.  Miss you all terribly!

Good food, good friends, family, fun- all the while remembering what the day is truly all about!
Happy Easter!

Playing Dress-up

 Lots of families play dress up...most just aren't this weird about it.

Tucker phase 1: came downstairs with a 'few' extra pieces of clothes on.
 Tucker phase 2: starting to unveil just how many articles were on his body.
 Tucker phase 3: final phase of taking off the 22 pairs of underwear he had somehow gotten on one over the other! 
Final article of clothing count on this 5 year old frame- 58!  Why??  ...we have no idea.

 Maybe this helps clarify...
or this.
 Seems it's genetic.

 Starting at a VERY early age.

This was the boys 'dressing up' as their hanging towels.  Yup. They're in there!

Spring Fun

 Just a few fun shots of Spring randomness...
The kids LOVE playing/getting rides in the little red wagon that our cute neighbors gave to us.

 Kyla's first piggies...yes, those totally count as pigtails! :)
 Tucker's "Spring Musical" at Otter River Elementary.  So fun to have a 'big kid' :)
