OK... so on to Easter!! Easter was incredible for us! It was raining and yucky weather, but we improvised and hid eggs all over Nana's den (my mom's house). I can confide here (with my network of adopted families who "get it" that I thought alot about my boy(s) in Kazakhstan... it just can't be helped. :-) At dinner... my nephew said he wanted to pray and Brook said she wanted to pray, and Bay said she wanted to pray.. so we decided to go around the table.. and all pray.. it was so special! Bailey prayed so perfectly for the day... about what the day (Easter) was and meant. She thanked God for what he did for us on the cross and then proceeded to pray for her brother(s) in Kazakhstan... (as you can imagine... I almost lost it here!) It always amazes me how the girls include them already... Those bubbas (or bubba) are already so loved! Surely this will be our last Easter without them... right? I thought that last year as well.. but, God has a plan!! :-)
OK... so I had my camera up and going.. and am going to share lots of pics from the day!!
Enjoy!! I hope and pray that all of you had a wonderful Easter!!
Here is a family picture of us that my mom took at her house.. I won't tell you how long it took us to get this.... oh my.. Brook wouldn't sit still.. and Phil and Bay were silly.. and well.... I seemed to be the only one who cared about getting a "good" picture!! (:-))
I still can't believe this is my baby girl ~ Wow! She's growing up so fast!! Phil hates pictures of her like this...
This is Bailey with my Mom (Nana)! They are really close. They always have a great time... you know Nana rocks!!
This is Brook with Nana! They are really close too... As you can see, they have lots of fun as well!
Nana with her Girls!
This is Brook with my nephew Cody... Any idea what they were doing? It's a wagon train/covered wagon... Notice the gun in Brooks lap! It's the Easter Bunny nerf gun... They went on a wagon ride and were protected from the dangerous animals!! Sometimes their conversations are so funny!! They live in the Brook and Cody land quite a bit!!!
Remember when I mentioned it was raining outside... well, we had our egg hunt indoors.. and hid the eggs anywhere we could... ha ha.. Phil was relaxing while we were hiding them... (instead of helping us :( ) and so we hid them all around him... in his pants legs, etc... The kids thought it was tons of fun.. and honestly, I never heard Phil complain.. cause he got to continue the position while the "hunt" was going on!! (Lucky dog!) :-)
Brook finding the "PRIZE" egg! (She had a HUGE tip from her Uncle Keith!) Keep in mind that this precious little girl in her Easter dress, tights and cute dress shoes... was carrying around a nerf gun all day!!! :-) Priceless!!
Have a Blessed Week!!
