Easter Day

Easter was this big boy's 4th birthday!  So we started off our morning with a new bike for our 4 year old...he loves to go out and ride, or in his words "have bicycle training."

Then on to Easter baskets before church....legos for this boy!

and new umbrellas (that actually work) for all!

Carsyn had 1 candy in her basket - a thing of M & M's - but if you ask her about Easter, her only response is "candy!"

After church we had brunch at the West Lake Club. This is a new stage of photographs for Griff - always some crazy pose....

this girl LOVES her brothers!

"hunting" (AKA collecting) eggs - 
Carsyn was more interested in waving at the Easter bunny and showing him her basket than she was in actually getting eggs!

and this is Griffin's little kindergarten crush...Laura Leigh....he giggles and blushes when you mention her name....

Family Pics

We attempted to get some good pics of everyone on Easter - my philosophy is take a million and maybe a few will turn out!!  Here's the best from the latest million...

Circus Party

We celebrated the little 2's birthdays today with a circus party. I figured this may be the only year that I can get away with a combined party! The plan was to have everything out back on the deck and in the yard....but it rained all day yesterday and all this morning!  So we shifted everything inside and into the garage. Other than a little extra noise and a little extra chaos, it worked just fine! 

 Lollipop  came to do face painting and balloon sculpting for the party. She was great and not too scary for the little ones.

 cupcakes, popcorn, cotton candy, and lemonade were perfect circus treats.
