Happy Easter!

Happy Easter...this picture was taken at 6AM!!!!

She started eating candy at 6:30AM! Before we left for church, she had already eaten a Hershey Cookies and Cream bar, Reese Egg, Air Heads and Cinnamon Applesauce Pancakes (thank you Daddy).

Jenna was a little bit excited about the chocolate bunny!

James Daniel smiling at Mommy after his morning feeding. Such precious moments.

Me and my precious children...Claire, Ellie, Jenna, James and John David!

Daddy and his girls...teen years should be interesting!

It is nearly impossible to get 5 kids ages 4 months to 7 years to look at the camera at the same time and smile....but this is a pretty close one!

End of the day, after bath and pj's, Mamaw singing to the girls.

What more can I say than, "pictures are worth a million words"! We had a wonderful Easter Day. The Easter Bunny came by EARLY this morning and Rob and I were awoken to Claire and Ellie finding their Easter baskets. We attended early worship service at Brook Hills, ate an early lunch, had naps, and then headed to Mamaw's house for Easter dinner. The girls were CRAZY all day. We started eating candy, chocolate, JUNK at 6:30 am and finally called it quits at about 6:30 pm... I think Ellie ended up in time out at least three times. I have a belly ache from too much sugar and Jenna passed out when we got back home at 8:00pm from probably a sugar induced coma.

We surely did enjoy our day with lots of fun family time and a delicious meal prepared by Mamaw. I hope all of you had a great Easter as well.

Those pictures are to be treasured. You really got some good ones. And I am totally impressed beyond measure at the fact that you were all up and dressed looking that good for EARLY church!!! I only have one child and it would be hard for us all three to be ready go on a weekend for the early service.
