Easter 2009

As I sit here creating this post it is snowing outside. What cruel joke is this?
Anyways........Easter was terrific this year. The Church program was so inspiring.
And then hanging out with family the whole weekend was fun.
The grantwids are in their year of firsts. First birthdays, first steps, First Easter, etc.
Dominic started walking at church today. He made it 4 ft. before falling.

I found their baskets at the goodwill.
Mathias and Annie actually hunted for their eggs.

Then we had an Egg hunt for the BIG kids...
Molly and John dyed 54 real eggs...

I had a huge bag of plastic eggs which were filled with...
1 starburst...I know...is that all?

At the signal they all came sprinting down the hill.

They searched and searched....

And then they counted to see who won by getting the mostest...

Andrew won with a total of 19 eggs....
but Paul really wanted to win so he went back out for another
hunt and found 4 more than he had so he beat Andrew by 1!
Technically I don't know if this counts.

Then we ate a big feast and then chilled out playing tank wars on
XBox 360, chatting, or playing on the trampoline.

Happy Easter Everyone!

Mr. Potato Head

It's April Fools Day and guess who's having a birthday?

Mr. Potato Head is a production from the Sutherland household.

The singing of the Birthday Song was quite terrifying...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAN! We won't disclose the number of years.
