Easter Day

Chickadee has kicked it up a notch with being very hyper...she's definitely getting older.  She is getting more into the phase of not listening and not doing what you ask her to do, but honestly, she's a good kid, so this has just really started to get a little more challenging.  So we used the whole, if you don't listen to us, the Easter Bunny won't come visit you.  We did it, yes.  We were sooo ready for her to go to bed the night before Easter and she was just all over the place.  Well, it worked and after the normal hour of waiting for her to fall asleep, I snuck out of her room and loaded her basket up for her the next morning...
She was so excited the next morning and we reminded her of how she had listened to us and got this whole basket of goodies from the Easter bunny ;)  She dug right in...
 She was so excited with all of the non-candy stuff...she couldn't decide which to pick next...

 Momma a/k/a the Easter bunny did good.  Although, I don't have the time to shop like I used to, and I love to find fun things.  But I had to just pick up the majority at one store...
 Then we all got ready and headed out to spend time with Joey and Wendy and their family and friends.  And, of course, we were every excited to get to see Merrin again...  They were so cute together...
 Emma loved the Easter egg hunt.  I was busy taking pictures but I heard that she was a go getter in getting them ;)
 How cute all the kids were running around getting the eggs...
 They were adorable...
 And then you have to check out what you got!
Merrin digging in to what's inside...
 Now to open the candy...
 It was all fun, but I did hear that Merrin got the golden egg, but 'shared' with Emma.  Usually Emma is more interested in the candy, so she surprised us with getting into finding the eggs more than what was inside...
 Prizes were handed out for finding the most eggs.  Here's the winner of the older kids' category and Emma won for her age category.  She was sooo excited!
 Art time.  Joey's Mom had a cool idea for all of the kids to mark on these vintage ceiling tiles...
It's a good thing we all like each other...even though Dennis is treading in LSU territory...this was Joey's tile he made ;)
 Bebe (not sure if I spelled it right) said she wasn't creative and couldn't do anything...ha...she did a beautiful tile...
 Emma was loving having Joey by her as she colors...
 the 'girls'  so sweet...
 It was hot, but a beautiful day...it was so good to hang out...
 on the porch...

 Got a few family pics of Wendy and Joey's family...just a couple here...this one with a vintage effect...
 and this one with a black and white effect...unfortunately...little chickadee wanted to get in the picture...go figure...she is in the background with Dennis' arm.  Beautiful family...
 more hanging out...on the swing...
 good times with new friends...
We were so happy to meet so many wonderful family and friends.  Thank you Noreen for the beautiful comment.  It was so nice to meet you.  It was really a wonderful day...
