Easter 2009

Easter 2009 was a huge success, mainly because we, once again, were fortunate enough to have our crazy cousins from the North join us. Here's the break-down of our fun-filled weekend:
  • Getting far too little sleep, thanks to two little boys who, apparently, love each other so much that they want to spend time together at all hours of the night
  • Doctoring one sick, sick, sick baby boy (Will)--just like last Easter
  • Devouring burgers at Five Guys, as always
  • Staying up waaaaaaaaaay too late (especially considering the fiasco that is two boys four-months apart sleeping under the same roof)
  • Enjoying a fun, scenic bike ride sans kids (they were at home with a sitter)
  • Dying Easter eggs--glitter this time!
  • Eating at The Cheesecake Factory where the kids were beautifully mannered and we walked right in and got a table (unheard of in this town--then again, we did go to dinner at 4:00 in the afternoon; I'm sure that helps.)
  • Watching Juno again--what a great flick
  • Participating in EASTER MORNING: watching the kids find eggs (mostly Beth, though Will did find a few of his "ball" eggs) and opening their baskets
  • Relishing our homemade Easter Brunch: yum, yum, yum
  • Arriving late to church, even though it's at 1:00, all so we could attempt the pre-church Easter shots that were not so successful (see below)
  • Remembering why we celebrate Easter: because of Christ's victory over death we can live together forever as families (but hopefully in heaven those little boys will sleep--otherwise, I'll take option B, thank you very much).
  • Happy Easter to all and to all a GOOD NIGHT!

Enjoy the photos:

Oh, Will looks so handsome (until someone took away his basket). He is so cute. I wish we could come over for Easter morn.

Those do sound like some good times. Anything involving the cheesecake factory is a good time. I sure wish there were one in Spokane! I love Will's new haircut! Did you do that yourself? Happy Easter! I'm glad you had a good one!
