A picture of my cute little guys on Easter Sunday

The weather was beautiful, and the kids were dying to ride bikes for a few minutes before our company arrived. I love that look-- collared dress shirt, rolled sleeves, and blue jeans. One of my fav's.

Mom, Dad, and Zack came over to share Easter Dinner with us. Here Mom is afterward, helping to make sure the colored eggs get put to good use. Gotta love Moms.

Just a cute shot.

After several days, I offered to give the boys some money if they would part with some of their Easter candy. They happily agreed, and I was proud of them, thinking that they were gonna put the $$ in their banks and save it for something they wanted. Um, No. I opened our door to the garage and LO! And Behold! There are 2 little culprits, spending their $ on candy from our little vending machine. Look at those faces. LOL

The egg hunts...

On the morning of the Easter egg hunt, it was snowy, VERY windy, and VERY cold. But, it was one of the 1st times that Josh was home and could go with us to do a hunt, and the boys really wanted to.... so.... we bundled everyone up in all their winter clothing from their hats and gloves to their snowsuits, boots, and scarves, and we made a go of it.

I was very surprised at all the LOOT they got from the city egg hunt! WOW. Who even needs an Easter basket after something like that??

We froze. My hands had no feeling for a good 1/2 hour after we came in. The boys had a great time though, and it helped get 'em psyched to hunt their colored eggs the next morning.

After the kids found the eggs that the Easter Bunny had hidden, they decided to hide them for each other and keep the fun going. These next pictures are ones that Josh took of the place Nick hid some eggs... We wondered how he had hidden them so fast. lol

Thank goodness for the innocence and sweet joys of youth! =)

Egg decorating

Here we are decorating Easter eggs at the Jardine household... It was much more fun than I had remembered in the past! Possibly due to the fact that this year everyone could do it unassisted. =) We had a great time and ended up with quite a few beautiful eggs for the E.B. to hide!
