Easter 2012

Easter kind of snuck up on us this year because we've been so preoccupied with getting ready for Jordan's wedding that was the week after Easter. We still had a great time though. The kids all got lego sets in their baskets. We had a fun little scavenger hunt that led the kids to their baskets and an easter egg hunt in the back yard before getting ready for church.

After church we went to Deb and Wayne's for Easter dinner and another egg hunt for the kiddo's. Jessie and Cory were there with all their kids so my kids loved being able to run and play with a bunch of other kids.

We had such a fun Easter but had to hurry home to get ready to head to Washington for the wedding the next morning!

We really tried to remind the kids why we celebrate Easter. We tried to help them remember that it's not about the eggs or the legos. It's about Jesus, his life and the Resurrection. We want them to know that we will also be resurrected because He was and that we need to always be thankful for Him. We hope you all know that as well!

Aubrey's First Hair cut

All the kids got to go to Stacy to get their hair cut this week in preparation for Jordan's wedding next week. Aubrey's hair cut was her very first! She has gorgeous hair but some is straight and some is curly so Stacy kind of evened it out.

Brynley wanted to keep her hair the "same size" so she just reshaped it for her.

Caleb is going for the long hair look so she thinned it out a bit (he has a TON of hair!) so it wouldn't get too poofy as it grew.

My kids are so cute, don'tcha think?!

Pine Wood Derby

Caleb had his first pine wood derby this year. Or should I say, Brandon had his first PWD as a dad this year? He was stressed beyond belief over that little car! It ended up all working out and Caleb and Brandon made a fantastic car that looked so cool! After MUCH deliberation he went with the "Batmobile" theme. He won the "Judge's Choice Award" (this pleased Brandon very much to have the approval of his peers ;-) ) and he also won 5th place! Both boys had a great experience and so much fun!
