easter and giving birth again

Here they are!! in their Easter dresses and shoes!! girls, I have girls!! Now lets start the photo shoot!! Surely this will be easy with these darling girls being so photogenic!!

Gillian, look at the camera!! over here honey!!!

no not silly faces, smile for the camera, come on work with me not against me!!

OK goof balls there is a smile, goofy but a smile

posing for the camera I could have uploaded all the pictures but you wouldn't have gotten done reading until next week!!

the dark Easter bunny brought Adrianna a New Moon bag, yuck! Well there's no accounting for taste!!

OK we invited a bunch of kids and this is all that came. we have 300 plastic filled Easter eggs so good luck and go find them

I think they all turned their backs at the same time, the hunt lasted about 30 minutes which is quite a long time as far as hunts go, but i used 2 and a half yards to put the eggs in

my girls are a little close to the street here but they are doing a great job picking up all the eggs, and i am ten feet away.

See the blue string in the grass? yeah my sister and her kids plus my oldest decided to spray me down when they got there and wish me happy birthday, a day early so as to surprise me.
After we found all the eggs there was the egg race. you know the one with the eggs on the spoon and they walk around the tree?

look at how swift footed and agile miss Haley is!! she didn't drop her egg, though through the magic of editing you didn't see the first two races where first she held the egg and then she dropped the egg!! oh well third time's a charm!!
Here she is getting her prize from my sister!! a water squirt gun which she later used to squirt the very woman who gave it to her!!
and here I gave 'birth' to Haley all over again!! he,he,he. We had so much junk food I may not loose weight for ten years!! all in all the Easter holiday/early birthday was wonderful, and today for my birthday I have had 15 wishes given to me via facebook and I am going shopping with my sister and out to lunch!! the good shopping the kind for clothes that you see women do in movies, yeah that is what i am doing today. and Saigon #49!! the best Thai cuisine in Wichita!! now i need to grab a fresh cup of Yemen coffee and check up on how everyone else is doing this morning. for todays thought; "You grow up the day you have your first real laugh at yourself"- Ethel Barrymore
