Easter 2015

Easter was a bit colder this year than last. Last year I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt, while this year we were bundled up a tad more in pants and long sleeves AND a jacket. It didn't take us long to warm up that day, as we did some running around playing games in the Meeuwsen's backyard.
I love the color coordinated eggs for each kid. All the kiddos are searching so hard and yet they still need our help so we are all yelling out to them, 'Austin over here!'   'Ava look by this tree!!'.
And some of them are still young enough to need an 'egg-hunting chaperone'.

I busted out my camera for the egg hunt but that was about the only time it came out. We were either inside keeping warm and letting the kids play in the basement, or we were running around chasing them and playing tag and red rover!
The kites are always a huge hit with the kiddos.
And of course the bubbles too.
Austin was blowing bubbles at the other kids and he was just a gigglin' away. Each and every time he blew some and the kids popped them, he thought it was about the funniest thing ever. I just love those deep down belly laughs.

He is surely growing up a tad too fast. And those eyelashes!? they slay me. And don't think that Austin voluntarily will wear that button down. It's a bit of a fight. Just on the holidays do I bust out a cute button down but I have to PROMISE him that we can change after church. He usually forgets about that part and wears the shirt the entire day. He is my comfy guy. He loves t-shirts and comfy pants. I don't remember the last time I was able to get Austin to wear a pair of jeans. Every year, I somehow forget that Austin will battle me for jeans, so I buy him another pair and they sit on his shelf.
It's a good thing he's so darn cute.

We have to cherish these years with the kiddos all being small enough to enjoy the Easter egg hunt. It won't be long and they'll all be 'too cool' to do it. Maybe we can do one for the adults then. They can all roll their eyes as the adults hunt for eggs with something else in them. Although mine would still be filled with candy. It's my favorite holiday only for the fact that those mini cadbury eggs and sour jelly beans come out and I hoard them everywhere. Its well past Easter and I still have sour jelly beans that I am trying to savor.
