Not the Best at the Egg Hunt Yet!

Standing in front of the roped off lawn, covered with hundreds of bright colored beacons for his attention, he could barely contain himself...James was dying to pick up the eggs at the church Easter Egg hunt. That is, until they sounded the buzzer and the mad dash began. James just froze in panic, determined that the candy calling his name was not worth risking his life!

On the other hand, Haylie was so giddy with excitement she was running around in circles, trampling the eggs but getting none in her basket. Then she started hunting for what seemed like specific color eggs because well yellow and green aren't nearly as pretty as pink.

Both kids didn't need anymore eggs and certainly not anymore candy but there's just something inside us as parents that makes them want to get out there, elbows extended, and shovel those eggs into their basket as fast as possible!! :)

We had to grab a couple eggs and bring them to James - Here he is still standing on the sidelines:

Thinking about it:

Kiley knew what to do!

All dressed up for Easter:

Back to Easter

Even though it was a month ago - wanted to get some pictures up. James was a little too young to enjoy dying Easter eggs last year but he was quite fascinated this year. Haylie just wanted all her eggs pink!

Soccer Fans

Haylie and James have so much fun playing together! Here's Haylie and all of James' other fans, lined up in the bleachers watching soccer star James!
Once I started taking pictures, James decided he wanted to be part of the crowd.

So much for the soccer game:

All In The Family

Haylie loves to talk about her family. She draws pictures of all of us, lines up her carrots and even creates us all out of Playdoh. After she finished this little line playdoh I asked her to tell me what it was and her answer was: Our Family (In order from left to right), Haylie, James, Raider, Mommy, Daddy, Grandma, Grandpa, Kiley, Lea, Jesus and God - cause He's the biggest.

Matching Aprons

Has it really been a month since I blogged last? Well stay tuned - I have lots of catching up this week.

For Christmas, Haylie and I got matching Aprons. Haylie loves to be a good helper and it is even more fun to help Mommy when we're wearing the same thing! Here are some cute pictures of Haylie washing potatoes the other day. She is the best dinner helper and she's even gotten to a point now where it is actually helpful to have her in there when I'm cooking. She did a very thorough job washing all these potatoes.
