Easter:Part 1

I found when I started looking through my pictures this morning that with four kids and four baskets you come out with lots of pictures so I'm going to break this up into two posts. I'm going to do Lucas and Jacob in a separate post..since they were at my dad's house we took their baskets over when we went for dinner yesterday afternoon.

Caleb was the first one up yesterday morning and when he got up he actually didn't even notice his basket. He walked right past it and into the kitchen to get his breakfast...I had to walk into the living room and ask him what that was sitting on the floor. As soon as he saw it though it was over..he was at it...he wasn't one of those that started tearing through it though. He very slowly looked at one thing and if it was candy he'd say "I need that" "I need that now." I would then have to point something else out that was in there and then he'd be interested in that until I showed him something else.






Allie got bath toys in her Easter basket this year. She has so many toys and of course she can't eat candy yet but she had not been outfitted with toys for the bathtub yet..she'd been playing with some of the boys things that were safe for her and of course as much as she loves the bathtub she had to have her own. She started going through her basket when she woke up with the help of Caleb and had a great time. She actually played with them on the floor for a while and even last night before we went to bed she was at it again. Seems she likes playing with them on the floor too.


You can see that at the beginning Allie went for Caleb's basket..he immediately grabbed hers trying to let her know that his basket was not hers...too cute!





Allie was quickly fascinated by her basket...she sat and played with it for a while...I'm fascinated at the things that amaze her.


Caleb wanted to play with Allie's toys very quickly also. He played with them for a good while...I tell ya they always like baby toys no matter how old they get..I'll never understand it.

Great pictures! Bath toys would have been a great idea for my little girl. Didn't think about that. I'm a grinchy mommy and didn't get her anything. :/ My sisters let me know that wasn't acceptable! I just figured she's a baby and won't remember it anyway. My cheapness coming through there! :)

Looks like your two little ones really raked it in! :)
I don't even want to think about all the photos I took this weekend. There's well over 200 of them. I will probably have two Easter posts, too! :)

I don't think I ever realized what a huge holiday Easter is. Jackson got tons and tons of toys and as I look around the blogs, I see that other kids are too. It's practically Christmas all over again!

Great pictures...I love Caleb's baby feet. So chubby and precious. That is the same sucker we used in the bio pictures for the kids play. Hope he enjoys it!

Great shots, looks like they had a blast, I love the baby playing with her basket, the empty basket, that's often the favorite part for babies it seems.
