Neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt/T-Ball/Easter Sunday

On the Saturday before Easter, March 22nd, our neighborhood had an Easter Egg Hunt for all the kids. I'm not kidding when I say that there were at least 50 kids up there! It was a lot of fun but very quick. I think most kids just got one egg and some didn't even get that many. There were some tears. I suspect they will try to have more eggs next year. :) Jackson had a good time and enjoyed the donut and orange juice that was offered. Mimi came along to document the activity while Papa went with Anthony & Harrison to his last Basketball game of the season. We then all met up for Harrison's T-Ball Practice.

Here are all my boys on Easter Sunday. Sadly, I didn't get to take a picture with them this year. I was on the Worship Team and had to leave for church at 6:30am. Needless to say, they weren't up and ready AND it was dark outside! ;) Mimi & Papa ended up having to leave that morning because the flights looked so bad for later in the afternoon so the boys dropped them off at the airport before church. We had a wonderful Turkey dinner in the crock-pot waiting for us when we got home and it was a wonderful Easter spent together as a family. However, next year, a family photo will certainly be on the list!!! :)

From one sport to the next - equal opportunities! What a great neighborhood, but that is sad there weren't enough eggs. Next year, 2 girls in the photos - it's a must!

What a busy weekend for y'all! Harrison's party, Easter Egg Hunts, Basketball, T-Ball and then Church on Easter Sunday. And just think next year Addison will be in the mix and I have a feeling those little nephews of mine are gonna be hugging on her in your Easter 2009 picture! And who knows...maybe we'll be having an Easter Egg Hunt with y'all too. Remember all the great Easters we spent with you and Anthony when we would come up to Liberty when y'all were in college...picnics and fried chicken...those are some good memories.
