Easter 2012

Easter was a bit strange for us this year. We kept it very, very low key and didn't overload on places to be and stuff to do. Husband played bass at church for the five services we had at our main campus which meant he was gone all of Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. We did manage to get a few eggs colored, an egg hunt done, 'baskets' opened and attend church. We didn't have a huge spread out Easter dinner but grilled out instead. It was actually really nice to keep it super simple and just be. I felt really wiped out - probably from getting up in the middle of the night with K several times the week before. I'm not sure what has been up with her but she seems to hate sleeping in the middle of the night. She doesn't even want to sleep on Mommy! Crazy girl.

A couple weeks before Easter I took the kids to a local photog for some Easter pictures. I LOVED them. She's taken other holiday pictures of the kids and they always turn out great. This time they were outside so Mum-Mum & Papa came along with us to help corral. She had live baby chicks and bunnies! E was really into the bunnies while they were in the cage. As soon as it was loose he freaked. A, however, was a grumpy-puss when we got there (& you can tell in the pictures) but as soon as that bunny was set down in front of her she was EXCITED. Poor bunny :( She desperately wanted the fur off that rabbit (it was super, super soft) and she kept reaching down and touching and grabbing and pulling. H & K just looked at it but as soon as it made one move E was up and crouched into the fetal position behind his sisters. One of the funniest things I have ever seen! It was awesome. So....without any further ado I'll share some pictures of the kiddos from their Easter session. I think they're all pretty darn adorable - not that I'm biased or anything.

This was seconds before E freaked out about the bunny. A is reaching for it - she apparently loves animals. Or bunnies at least.

My first two babies caught in a rare moment.
E - 3 years old
H - 2 years old

My littlest loves
K & A - 10 months old
