Finger Puppet

Will's exact words: "Mom! I have a surprise for you!"
(pulls this out from behind his back:)
Will: "It's a poorly-made chihuahua finger puppet!"

Sleepy Head

This is what happens when a 2 year old decides to not nap anymore. It catches up with him, and pretty soon he's a goner.

Water Proofing

This is the test to see if your water proofing job worked, I guess. Max, Sam and the neighbor girl got inside to see if they got wet. The tent passed! No wet kids!

Did you notice the fake eating sound effects? This slurping noise accompanies anything that Max finds particularly delicious. And he CAN say "excuse me," he's just choosing not to, the little booger.

Easter Morn

Look who's all Snuggly Wuggly:candy!
Eating candy requires slurpy sound effects - plus you can hear the older two in the background smacking their jelly beans in a most obnoxious way:

Plus, what's up with the repeated head butting of the camera?! No idea.


Excitement over the egg hunt!
Every single egg really was this exciting!

Sand toys:
Big balls (snicker.)

surveying the aftermath:
Water squirters and a tired Daddy. Yes, there's that hooded sweatshirt again. It was like 65 degrees in the house that morning - guess he was cold. :-)
You'd think I only had one child, there's so many pictures of Max. Gonna have to work on fixing that.

It was a relaxing day!

Saturday Brunch

Yesterday we had brunch and an egg hunt. Every found egg was exciting:

Cute Easter dress:

Damon and his parents:
Looking hard:

Counting to see if we'd found em all and a quick nap, I guess. Jack was tired because we'd made him get up early - (10:30.) There were over 150 eggs to find! Some how we ended up with more than what my mom thought she'd hid. :-) Sometimes I wonder about her....or else they were still out there from last year!

Getting ready to open the eggs:

Surveying the loot:
One of the gems were these puppies:

Because nothing says "Easter" like fart whistles :-) Joe sarcastically thanked Gramma at the end of the video, but it was all Laura - and she takes full responsibility.

Max got a bubble gun:

I don't know who's "cuter," the bubble blower, or the bubble catchers.

One of the items inside the eggs were punch balloons for everyone. They were a big hit:

So glad that my innocent little two year old could be the source of entertainment:-)

Mr. Curly Moustache and his wife:

She's got quite the tan going on.
