Easter Celebration

We host Easter and I am so happy that this year is probably the smoothest it has gone despite being caught in a hailstorm and a last minute trip to urgent care Friday for E's asthma.  We're a pretty awesome team.  While it was a ton of work, it was so worth it just to see the look on these five little faces.  We enjoyed time with family, especially great-grandparents, who so enjoyed time with the kids.  And yes we did make it through church with a bit of help you know who you are thank you!  We did a lot of prep, we don't have a cry room or nursery, after a little snafu heading in, not so thrilled with all the people, they quickly overcame it and stayed in the pew for over an hour and did beautifully, so proud of them!!!!  Alleluia!  Grandma Marion says her prayers that morning helped and I sure agree!  This pic is of half the car, if I took the other half, we definitely would have been late ;)

Easter morning sweetness, my favorite part of the day


Aiden loving his new pillow pet (these are smaller versions from Cloud B so cute)

Griffin and all the dump trucks (they are from Green Toys-we have an eco-conscious Easter Bunny)

Daddy and E makin' the punch

E's loot


yes everyone is smiling and good except mommy, darn closed eyes again!

more loot

a very sweet pic of Griffin and his sweet cheeks by Daddy

champagne punch so yummy

homemade, from-scratch cinnamon rolls, should have taken a picture of the kitchen b/c then you would have believed me :)

more yummy food (donut muffins)


quiches, asparagus parmesan, scalloped au gratin potatoes, muffin frittatas, 
waldorf chicken salad, dilled egg salad, hashbrown casserole


Our Egg Hunt, the boys so loved it this year!
E and I found these massive eggs, Liam was hysterical with his!



Griffin and his Elmo egg, they loved these too

Beckham, more Elmo love

no matter what, boys will always find the mud

sneaking chocolate
so funny he didn't eat it just wanted to unwrap it 

Aiden was more ready for a round of golf
and the tongue is sticking out again ;)

and still more Elmo love

Griffin so dapper

E and his cousin Mikayla

Beck and his buddy Grandpa Jack

Mommy and Aiden, my little helper

not sure if Griffin is believing what Grandpa Jack is telling him

E "teaching" them his new game YamSlam
he says to Grandma Farinella, 
"you could try that OR you really could go for the flush"

E going through the Resurrection Eggs

And after all of our guests left and the over-sugared exhausted little guys were put to bed it
was time for a special Nighttime Egghunt for E with glow in the dark eggs I bought on
clearance after last Easter and E couldn't wait to do :)



Finally before bedtime were talking about what to do with all the candy.  Matt says, "I think we'll just file it" to which E replies, "IN MY STOMACH!"  He just keeps getting funnier ;)

 We hope your Easter was beautiful and joy-filled too!
