SPT Easter

for tuesday, april 10th: in your easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it...

I made the mistake of not reading the SPT for the week before the weekend. For some reason, I wasn't very good at taking pictures this Easter. I took some of the kids, but none of me. Maybe it was because of the weather. I am so tired of the cold. At least Sunday was sunny, but it was still cold. I had to put tights under Alex's dress. Just not as cute.

Being Catholic, Easter is a very big deal in our house. We would always get together with my parents' siblings and their children. What I remember most is the Easter egg hunts we would have a my Grandma Bothe's house. It was this big old house with lots of nooks and crannies. My cousin Tracy and I searching all over the house for our baskets and eggs. We always had so much fun.

This Easter was pretty low key. We went to Mass and then my parents, Jim's parents, and his brother and his wife all came to our house for our Easter meal. We had a huge spread of turkey, ham, biscuits, salads, mashed potatoes, and 3 different desserts. Also, Jim's brother's birthday is Wednesday, so we celebrated that as well. We had a very nice, relaxing day. Hope everyone else has a special Easter.

This is the best shot I could get. No one wanted to cooperate.

Your kids look adorable and it sounds like you had a nice, relaxing day. I also failed to read the challenge before Easter so I feel your pain about the photos.

Sounds like a great day, so fun to have all that family close.

Your kids look great. If that's not cooperating then I can't wait to see a picture where they did!

A fun day with family is the best. The kids look so cute even if they weren't cooperating.

Does anyone ever want to cooperate? I still say they turned out fine. My kids sure don't unless I bribe them with candy.

We had a nice relaxing one too. Even better to have a birthday celebration thrown in the mix. I'll call you soon.

Your family day sounds fun though and yummy food.

I did the same thing, but I hope when blogger will let me post my picture there is one of me on the hunt with my kids.

Your day sounds very relaxing.

Don't worry, I didn't get any good Easter shots either. My kids took their clothes off the instant we walked in the door from Church!!

The kids look cute. I think it is harder to get Easter shots because they are all keyed up on sugar. Mine were so squirmy.

I'm with you on the lack of cooperation for pictures! Glad you had a nice Easter.
