Easter Part 3

Our newest addition!

_DSC0489 w

meet Bunny Foo Foo!

_DSC0501 w

and Mae has her sister Lily

_DSC0504 w

it is really a funny story how we ended up with her... My sister Coo Coo decided that the Easter Bunny was going to bring Mae bunnies for Easter. Not 1 but 2. So after a week of cleaning up after 2 bunnies (we all know that bunnies eat, poop, hop and poop some more) she decided the princess needed a bunny too.

so now she is ours! We love our Bunny Foo Foo!

Easter Part 2- Grandma's House

That afternoon we headed over to my mom and dad's for Sunday Dinner and the annual Easter Egg Hunt.

_DSC0463 copy bw w

the princess played with some new bubbles that the Easter Bunny brought her

_DSC0469 copy w

which was a great photo-op for me :)

_DSC0540 w

The "gremlin" also got some cool stuff from the Bunny

_DSC0530 w

and Addy Cake was just happy to be eating some of Maw Maw's yummy cooking
(can you say ADORABLE!!!! ) oh how I love her

_DSC0544 w

and the day would not be a day unless there was some DRAMA with Mae

_DSC0555 w

then it was time for the hunt! first up the little kiddos. (notice sweet Cabell a bit distraught by the spider crawling on the floor. Way to freaked out to care about hunting eggs and little brother the gremlin was enjoying every minute of her terror!

_DSC0568 w

"eggs??? what eggs??? That is a spider people!"

_DSC0683 w

Then before it began it was over and now time for the big kids. Now they get $$ inside their eggs. MONEY + TEENAGERS = MOTIVATION
yeah it was on!

_DSC0717 w

and my A-man scored the golden (heart) egg! HOLLA!

_DSC0721 w

and Addy Cake scored her a sweet cupcake cone...

_DSC0733 w

Allie Mae walked away with some dinero too! Poor Paw Paw not so much since he was the one who forked up the dough for the eggs. But he didn't care, he was making memories for our crew.

One more day of Easter and I will introduce the newest addition to our family...
Hint: she has been known to hop through the forest :)

Easter Part 1

_DSC0360 w

The Easter Bunny left quite a mess

_DSC0365 w

but who will complain when he leaves little "lamby"

_DSC0384 w

Daddio and the Princess caught in a "moment" <3

_DSC0391

my crew and their much "hated" Easter morning picture... (not that their faces would EVER give that away) lol

_DSC0397 w

after church service they had an outdoor egg hunt...

_DSC0406 w

she had been practicing for days

_DSC0413 copy bw w

Rog and Mase just stood around looking "cool" ish

_DSC0422 mh w

the princess and her BFF, which is the motivation behind her practicing. She wanted to make sure she had more eggs than Mae this year. Then after the hunt we headed home to change and head to Maw Maw & Paw Paw's for the annual easter egg hunt...

Next up Part 2
_DSC0244

Since my sister lives right down the street we decided to only mess up one kitchen instead of 2.

_DSC0249

We also decided to dye eggs a few days before Easter instead of the night before. Why?

_DSC0250

because of the dye it leaves on your hands. Who wants to get all dressed up for Easter Sunday and then your hands are shinning blue, green and yellow egg dye.

_DSC0268

I know that must the reason little girls wore white gloves on Easter.

_DSC0297

Even the big kids got in on the fun

_DSC0283

we had glitter, stickers and even tie-dye

_DSC0319

then once they were done... playtime!

_DSC0340

Sidewalk chalk

_DSC0350

Then it was time to sing to the "birthday boy"

_DSC0293

A-man my baby boy turned 13! sniff sniff

where did my little Ninja Go?
Life has been a bit crazy lately. It has been sometime since I have blogged or even read up on my fellow bloggers. I have a lot of catching up to do. I feel like I need to go back over everyones blog for the last 4 weeks to get caught up. This week I am hoping to get back in the swing of things and even pick back up on my 365 project. Hope you all haven't given up on me! Glad to see summer right around the corner :)

The break has been nice but blogging keeps me from missing "moments" like these.
Happy Monday!
