Easter 2011

the boy's easter basket goodies 2011

Easter came with lots and lots and lots of rain and storms this year! We had an amazing church service and the kids in the nursery even got to do a little easter egg hunt in the halls of the church.

After church we went to Jamie's Aunt Detra's house for lunch and an egg hunt. Noah was a little crabby, and both boys needed a nap desperately, but it still managed to be a great time! Noah hunted the eggs like a semi-pro this year...still not quite understanding that you have to get to the egg before the other kids! :) he would rather find just one with candy in it and eat all the candy, then go find another one!

the boys wore matching linen khaki's and blue and white sweater tops from The Children's Place (this is probably my favorite store for the boys), jamie matched with khaki's and a blue button up shirt, and I wore my new favorite shirt from The Limited...a creamy, lacy shirt with ruffles down the front! I wish we had The Limited at our mall, but I would probably spend way too much there if we did!
my sweet little 9 1/2 month old! of course his eyes were closed! LOL!

After lunch and the egg hunt, we went over to my parent's house for a surprise birthday party for their friend JoJo, and we also wanted to meet Jose, the new guy that's going to help my dad with his newest Criket location (it's a cell phone store). We had a great little party and then everyone promptly fell asleep!!
Italian cream! yummy!!
Once we woke up, it was about 6:00 and I didn't feel like just going home and having to clean up the house, so we went back down to Greenwood and dyed eggs with the Brown's :) Noah had a great time, for a little while, but the skies started really looking creepy and there was a tornado watch the whole time! once it started raining it seemed like it would never stop...my in-law's house is by a creek and a cow pasture and the entire back pasture was flooded!! aparantly, their house usually floods, but this time it didn't! thank God! we contemplated just staying the night, since it had gotten so late, but we decided we should get the kids home, so we packed up around 10 when there was a break in the storm...

Jonah enjoyed playing with this piano while we dyed Easter eggs!
my sis-in-law Jessica and I are the paparazzi at every event!
looking across the highway from the in-law's house..i think they called this a "shelf cloud"...right before it started raining

it stormed on and off again all day yesterday too! i'm really getting tired of the rain because i do not like to get out in it! we managed to make it to the gym and then straight back home before the storms hit yesterday. the rain has finally let up today, although i think it's supposed to storm again tonight..but the boy's and I have had an eventful day..we got out to go the gym and WalMart!
