Easter 2017

Ok so I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth I promise. I’ve been soooo busy I basically fall asleep the second I sit down every night. And I usually sleep on the couch, sometimes sitting up, until sometime between 1 am and 4 am when I eventually get up and go to bed for real. So I’ll catch up on everything over the past few months soon. But for now, here’s some cute Easter pics of my kids. None of me because I forgot to get a family pic. #momfail. Not my first either. My kids may have eaten candy for breakfast and dinner today. Not sure if that’s a #momfail or #momwin. Probably depends on who you ask.

The boys were really into the whole Easter holiday this year. They loved the Easter bunny. They loved Easter egg hunting. They loved church. And of course they loved the candy. So much candy. They were super excited to open their Easter buckets. Their most favorite thing in their buckets though was the “mac and roni” of course. Ha!

We had some bunny ears too.

After eating candy and a little real breakfast we went to church. And what do we wear to church? Just ask James. I learned this morning that James calls his church clothes his “Jesus costume.” Ha! Best. Thing. Ever. He came up with this on his own too which makes it so much better. And because I forgot to get a group shot, here’s a candid of James in his “Jesus costume” during the Easter egg hunt.

I hope Jesus approves.

We hosted Easter at our house this year like we’ve done the last few years. It’s exhausting, but so worth it. This year we had twice as many kids because my brother in law Jason and his family moved back to town last summer. More kids = more fun. And more noise. And more chaos. But so fun. Here’s a few pictures from the little kid Easter egg hunt.

James was definitely the best egg gatherer. All 3 boys have completely different egg hunting tactics. James was on a mission to fill his bucket. Mason only wanted to pick up certain eggs. And Logan opened every single egg before putting it in his bucket. And asked Nana to help when he couldn’t do it himself.

Of course opening the eggs and eating the candy was the highlight of the day.

And after that I slathered them in Tranquil oil and put them in bed. And I really hope they don’t wake up until morning. Because I’m so tired.

Oh but while I’m sharing, here’s some pictures from the boys’ Easter egg hunt at school this week too.

And they got to see the Easter bunny. And loved it! I am so in love with this picture!

They may have gotten into those buckets in the van on the way home too. Oops.

And by on the way home I mean on the way to Starbucks. For cake pops. Candy then cake pops. Sounds like good parenting to me. Oh except Logan asked for a cookie this time instead.

Oh and this may have happened yesterday. An Easter massacre.

Basically they hate me. But I won because they didn’t get any Easter grass this year. And probably never will ever again.

Last week they got to meet and play with a real bunny. James loved it. Mason wasn’t so sure. Ha! (I wasn’t there but this is what I assume based on the pictures and videos Brian sent me.)

Addison loves me. She did this for me. And made my OCD very very happy. She also dyed the eggs by herself this year. And they were all cooked this time too 😉

Ok so that’s all. I have some clothes to fold. Like always. But I’ll post again soon!
