Easter 2012

Posted in Holidays by

Easter this year was VERY different.  Grandma wasn’t there.
The boys came to church with Jason and I and then we met up with the rest of the family.
We all went to Claremore to celebrate the holiday at Grandma & Grandpa’s house before the house is sold.  For my husband and his sister their childhood memories are all over this house, inside and out.
Luckily we had a few kids around to help keep us laughing and entertained, although I was constantly reminded how much Grandma would have loved to be there.
Kiki got the boys Easter buckets and some bubbles!
I don’t think we have ever spent THAT much time playing with bubbles but the kids LOVED them.
Sutton kept saying, “BUBBLES!” demanding we keep the wand going.  Kiki’s arm got a work-out.
Pappy even showed us how to dip the wands into the bubbles!

Look what I got!!
Sutton looks sleepy!

Sutton, in usual fasion, was very methodical about placing his eggs in his bucket.
Fynn discovered that if you dump your bucket out onto the grass you can pick them up again.  Genius child of mine, I know.
Cousin Elliot coming in for the eggs!
Fynn loves to say, “No Baby!”

Aside from my kids missing a nap, not eating much lunch, eating candy (they RARELY eat candy) and the constant reminder Grandma wasn’t there….it was a good Easter celebrating our Lord and Savior!

Today my loves…

…was your 3rd Easter holiday and the first without Grandma.  It felt like something was missing all day.
…you slept in until 9 then we had to wake you so we could go to church.
…you walked right into church and started playing with the bubble machine!
…you wanted your windows down on the highway to Claremore.
Nothing like the wind blowing in your hair!
…you hunted Easter eggs.
…you ate more candy than you have probably ever eaten in one setting (bribery for photos)
…you showed love when helping each other pick up your eggs and not trying to steal them.
…you wanted me to sit next to you when watching cartoons, which I will always cherish because I know one day too soon you won’t care if I am sitting next to you or across the room.
…you didn’t eat a very good lunch, goldfish mainly.
…you wanted to watch Toy Story AGAIN!
…you skipped naps, which made for an early bedtime.
…you went around and gave everyone kisses when it was time to leave.
…you WANTED to brush your teeth, something I will also remember when you fight me on it later in life.
…you reminded me I have SO much to be thankful for in my life and I thank JESUS for you two EVERY SINGLE DAY!

Today my loves you made me love you EVEN more!

Until next post…
