Easter 2011

We had a great Easter weekend in Waco with my family!! Sweet Lila had a staph infection and spent a few nights in the hospital and ended up returning on Easter eve to the ER (She is doing much better now PTL!). So a few things looked a little different than we had originally planned. That and I am finding most things look a little different these days when our traveling circus comes to town. :)

Before we left on Thursday the boys took a few Easter treats to school. I just had to document their priceless little signatures. So sweet.

Stacey had the snack basket for his class and as usual eighteen25 (a blog that has free printables that I use ALL the time) had a perfect little Easter treat, Bunny Tails! You may not be able to tell in the picture because size doesn't always translate, but those are the biggest marshmallows, ahem, bunny tails I'd ever seen!
After welcoming the Warrens home from a few LONG days in the hospital and visiting with some friends at my sister's Waco Supper Club, which I crash regularly! It was time for Ryan's baseball game.

The fans
He is a natural just like his Daddy and hit a home run his first time up to bat!!!
This little fan (Crew) crashed out
in G.P.'s arms. Wish I could say the same for Coyt. He wasn't a big fan of the wind, but eventually gave it up as well.
Sisters and Brothers.
The snaggletooth twins had a ball playing at the game.
The next morning we got to watch Ally play T-ball. Just a wee bit different than Ryan's game - HA!! Pinky did just fine for herself and managed to round the bases as touching them that is a different story. ;) Angie said it was a good thing she liked dance, but you never know.

Super Kacey...remember the one whose daughter was in the hospital?? Yea here she is looking beautiful coordinating a little early egg hunt for the cousins. Rockstar.

They were trying to lift Wyatt up to get an egg hidden too high, but couldn't quite figure out how to do it. Lots of laughs.
We got to celebrate Uncle Marky's birthday.
Happy Birthday Mark!

On Easter morning before any one was awake and things got crazy I got to steal a minute outside in front of the cross my Dad lights for Easter. A sweet stolen moment remembering what Easter is all about before the day began. Stacey and Wyatt sat with us in church so I have no idea what the message was really about and the rest of the day, as things tend to be with eight kids three of whom are four months old!, was just a wee bit crazy (thankful we've had a month to talk about the real meaning of Easter and I'm purposing to do better on the real day next year...because I am sure 16 month old twins will make it so much easier - HA HA HA!).
Easter baskets filled with treats
Good morning!
The lizards were a hit. And we got one more year out of the I Love Chicks Easter jammies.
This little bunny boy was happy to check out his first ever Easter basket. Don't worry I know someone who can help him eat that chocolate candy!
The babies were napping when we started taking pictures and the warren's were still recovering from the nights events at the ER, so our photo shots were all sorts of combinations of kids and families, but I think we got some keepers.

Stacey and his BFF Ryan.
Wyatt & Ally
The Woods
Four of the six
Me & my Bigs
Honey and G.P. with half of their eight grandkids.
Me and the hubby
My PRECIOUS nieces!!!!
My five guys looking springtastic :) oh man am I one blessed mama or what!!!!
We finished up the weekend with an Easter egg hunt before heading back home.

They looked like caged animals ready to pounce!

We love our family so much and just enjoy every minute we get to spend together!!!

So many things...can I remember them all?

Gingham pic of the 5 fellas at your house - blow it up, slap it on a canvas, and call it done.

Never knew GP lit the cross on the house - love it.

Love love all the cousins and their matching outfits. And the adults coordinating wasn't too shabby either.
