We took a quick minute before leaving the house to take a few pictures, "just in case." We wanted to take pictures in a grassy field behind the church. Never happened. Naomi had colored her left leg solid green by the time we got 2 blocks to the church building, and Gage stuck 5 red jelly bean in his pocket that he had sucked on. Glad I grabbed these crazy moments!
They me laugh so much.
Each child we have, I truly believe there could not be a happier, sillier child,
but they just keep getting sillier.
I mean seriously.
Naomi. Look over here hun.
Just ONE nice picture guys. PLEASE!
Does Cache's expression remind you of Spratling Uncle in this pic or what?
"Naomi, put your foot down and smile pretty."
"I can't help it, my foot just points when I laugh!"
Bunnies ears fit Easter right?
I give up! Get in the car!

I love Easter! This is a little face book entry I wrote the night of:
"3am: Awake to kids in living room eating chocolate bunnies. Insisting that their baskets came with 2 large bunnies and parents came with none...
Its just pass 3:30 am and I just returned to bed after prying two fistfuls of jelly beans from Naomi's hands as she lay in bed! She didn't even get upset. She laughed and shoved as many as she could get away from me into her mouth... Going to be a looong Easter Sunday."
Easter morning we gathered all our little Chickie's on our bed, and talked a little about the resurrection and watched a movie of Christ resurrection on lds.org. Beautiful account of the the first Easter morning. Even the kids, I could tell thought that was special. Such a special sweet little Easter morning in our bright room all gathered on our bed in the morning light. I live for that kind of thing.
Then we let them loose.
We tried to steer away from as much Candy this year, but then as we leaned toward toys it started turning into Christmas.
Our kids are just too fun to buy things for. I have to put some major control. They just get so excited about everything. I thought in the end we had a nice balance. Gage got a basket of Cars stuff and Sponge Bob. (sponge sponge) We were so excited to find Krabby patty candy! Gage calls every burger "krabby patties" and requests them for dinner all the time. Naomi got a magnifying glass for her love of ants, and princess crayons and shoes. Cache got swimming goggles. He's been asking for months!
His chubby hands on his chocolate car, is just my favorite thing.
Princes, Woody and Starwars puzzles! (Thanks Grandma!)
Krabby patties! Oh I love love love him.
OH no. Krabby Patty, Mama.
Easter breakfast settings
Easter dinner at the Hawkes! Jason of course cooked us up some tregger meat, and the kids fed our kids all their Easter Candy. I love the Hawkes. Even though their 3 kids are older than ours, they are the sweetest to ours and play with them the whole time. Such nice kids! We had a a very Happy Easter!

First time riding a bike. Even in a princess dress!
First time making tortillas. (Even if they are on his head!)
First time facetiming cousin Danny by himself.
First time having an iceream cone!(He didn't know what to do with it.)
First(and last) time riding a komakazi 4 wheeler. Gage loved it. I'm sure they were going 60+mph. Never again! Not while I'm alive.
First time riding a motorcycle.
First time I've experience my fearless kids being scared of SOMETHING.
Glad to know they have limits! Besides Gage...
