After a wonderful worship service at church, I wanted to snap some pictures of the kids while they were in their Sunday best.
I just love the picture of Nate hugging his sisters; mainly because it shows Red's true redhead temper. She did not want him in her shot.
Check out this guy. He learned to tie a half Windsor knot this past week from his Language Arts teacher and asked to buy a tie yesterday. I can't believe he chose a pink one; but very glad he did because I think he looks sharp.
Too bad I didn't catch him smiling because uunfortunately, my battery ran out of my camera right after this shot, so no pictures of the family together.
There were also no photos of the ultra cool egg hunt we put on. I'm sorry, but I'm not into the huge egg "hunts" that go on nowadays. Throwing eggs on the ground in plain site isn't much of a hunt to me. How about call them Egg Grabs? Also, egg hunting with 500 other kids isn't my idea of excitement. Needless to say, we didn't take our kids to any organized egg hunts this year. We have plenty of kids of our own to make it exciting enough; and we hide them well enough that it takes them a good 10-15 minutes to find them all. We also had, in my opinion, some pretty great prizes for the prize eggs - coupons! Okay, so maybe that's not a great prize .... but the kids liked them. Some of the coupons were "One item from Dairy Queen", "Dinner out with Mom", and "Dinner out with Dad". I really should of specified on the dinner out part - one of my boys got that coupon and said he was choosing The Melting Pot as his designated restaurant. Not only is it over an hour away, but it costs a pretty penny. Maybe we'll be able to talk him into Taco Bell.
