Easter pics and family




Easter Egg hunt! This year we actually attended one. We haven't in the pass b/c it sounded too rediculous to have all those kids out in one place running around for eggs, but anyway this year was great. It was at a friend's house which made it so much better.








Elam was old enough to understand it AND get most of his eggs in the basket.




Beau was happy enough to just hang out with me the whole time. I should have put little sun glasses on him though.





Gibson and Haven got to hunt with the big kids. (Haven was smart and got away from the pack, so she got more eggs)




Gibson is in a new phase of, "not fair." He didn't think it was fair that he didn't get the prize egg.
Every Egg hunt should end with these cupcakes! I didn't have one, but they looked wonderful!




We also did some of our own Easter pictures in the back yard.

We also had a short visit from my mom and dad. They signed Haven's cast, did some laundry and yard work, and, dad even got to relive his mechanic days with Andrew and his stupid car. I mean, cool, vintage VW. :)













Gibson also had a short program at school.

Poor Haven again

Gibson really needed a hair cut, so, Andrew and I decided to buy a set of clippers so we could start cutting it ourselves. He wanted a Mohawk! We gave him a little one. (I'll get a better picture with it spiked)


In case you haven't heard..... Haven broke her arm! Remember how it was hurt on Friday? Well, by Monday it wasn't better. Her doctor sent us to an orthopedist. She came home with a pink cast.
(Andrew isn't certain that the doctor at the hospital didn't break it. He pulled on her little elbow and said he felt a pop!) The orthopedist didn't seem to think so. I just can't think of that as a possibility can you?!

We told her she would have it on for three weeks. I wasn't sure if we would be able to get her shirt off. Later when she talked to her Papa she told him that she couldn't get her shirt off so she would have to wear the same clothes for 3 weeks!



Well, it wasn't bad enough for my little girl to be the first one to break a bone! Since we gave the older boys hair cuts, I decided to cut her hair too, except I cut it WAY too short according to her! I think it's adorable, but if you know Haven, you know she has strong opinions.


























She cried at first, so I gave her some ice cream. Then I did my best to make her laugh the rest of the day. She was still very angry and even used strong language like, "I HATE MY HAIR CUT!" Poor Haven. She tried on two hats and a jacket with a hood to hide her hair.

Look how sad.........




But, after I showed her some sparkly barrettes and after going to school the next day she was better.
