I appoligze It has been a while since I have had anything blog worthy so here is a little EASTER OVERLOAD!

Easter Day. The yearly egg hunt at Grandma and Grandpa Alvey's.

Waiting in the front yard playing a little croquet while the eggs are being hidden by Grandpa and Mandi.

Keeping all the kids corralled in the back of the truck while the eggs are being hidden. No peeky peeky.

Everyone lined up ready to go. Listening to the rules and boundaries.

Jenna Brady and Brookelynn Searching for eggs at Grandma and Grandpa Alvey's yearly egg hunt. In hopes for the Gold or Silver egg.

This year Brady found the silver egg containing $3.

Easter Morning.

All the loot from the easter bunny.

Brookelynn found where her basket was hidden.

Now that Jenna and Brady are a little older the Easter Bunny hid theirs a little harder in the basement.

Searching for the three dozen eggs we colored at Grandma Alvey's house the day before. The Easter Bunny hides those for us as well. Good thing he helps him self to the fridge to get them out and hide them.

Egg coloring.

Brookelynn sooooooo happy to be here.

What a group. Egg coloring at Grandma Alvey's the day before Easter. Do you think there are enough cameras? The kids will be seeing stars by the end of this.

Brady is so good with kids younger than him. He needed a little brother. But cousin Kayden will do. I'm sad they live so far away.

Brookelynn became quite a pro. And only a few drips. Thank-goodness for Grandma's bright idea of garbage bag aprons.

Jenna so excited for Easter.

April fools

My Brady can be so sweet and funny sometimes. He wanted to play an April fools joke on me so he wrote a sign that said.
Your room is drtey and put it on my door. Then when I walked in he had cleaned my room. He made my bed as good as a 8 year old boy can. put all my dirty clothes in the basket of my clean clothes that needed to be folded, and moved my stuff so I may never find it again. Sweet as he is it really was a good joke on me.
