All things Easter

I'm done with plastic Easter eggs.  I'm not sad to see them go.  They are for the kids, but I cannot not help myself to the candy that's inside those little contraptions.  Hands down, Reese's peanut butter eggs are my favorite.  Tonight while the kids were taking a bath, getting the chocolate out of their hair, I purged all the Easter candy and took all those two cent plastic eggs downstairs to a high shelf.  Bah-bye.

By far the highlight of this Easter was hearing Jake's interpretation of why we are celebrating.  He had many Jesus insights.  Some of them accurate, and some not...

"Mommy, after Jesus rose from the dead, did he die again?"  Me: "No, He's in heaven with God." Jake: "oh, so he's up at the cabin?"  Sounds like Grandpa Theology to me!

Spoiled by Aunt Kate

Telling Easter Bunny (AKA Aunt Kate) there are 2 more days til Easter and questioning why she is here.  Notice Caleb looking from above.

8 a.m. before church.  Enough said.

It probably has money in it.

They really do like each other.

Big Boy Haircut

Don't cry, Grandma and Memaw.  We had to do something risky this Spring Break.  In between cleaning up puke, forcing pedialyte, doing laundry, and pity parties...we made Jake look like a 5 year old.  His new haircut has apparently made him naughtier too.  Meanwhile, he keeps saying "it feels so good."

Chicago weekend

Sweet boy!

Missing Caleb!
We spent the weekend in Chicago visiting Aunt Kimmy.  Definitely a good time!  Our highlight was visiting the Lincoln Park Zoo.  The best part, it's free!  We got lucky and had some great weather to walk around for almost 3 hours. 

I think Jake's highlight was Aunt Kimmy's big tub!  It was bubble heaven. 

We opted to leave Caleb home.  Memaw and Papa came up to stay with him.  Lucky for them, Caleb got sick...

We are currently all resting at home.  I was fortunate enough to get puked on as a welcome home gift.

Jake currently has not eaten since breakfast.  He says he's not hungry.  Do you know my children?  They are always hungry. 

We might be in for a long night....
