My Easter Birthday

My birthday fell on Easter this year. Justin took the day off of work to spend the day with us. We went to church to celebrate Jesus' resurrection & then just spent the day relaxing at home together. These are the beautiful roses my lover gave me, along with a whole stock-pile of my favorite, very expensive, green tea which he went out of his way to hunt down & buy for lil' ole me. He even let me take a picture that proves he is nice sometimes, & ruin his reputation. He's so sweet to me. I love 'im! :)

I realized, when we got home from church, that I hadn't taken any Easter shots. So I tried to get some handsome pics before they got out of their church clothes. These are the "handsome" faces I got from Jarod & Micah.

Isaac almost still dressed in his Sunday best.

This confirms my theory about the Easter Bunny: it's evil.

Gideon showing off his loot.

Went looking for Titus to take his pic. I was too late. Had to follow the trail to find him.

April Fools Day

Not much happened on April Fool's Day. Justin had me convinced that he had to go into work for a while, even though it was his day off (he's been working super late most nights because of an extra heavy work load & our vacation putting him behind). I didn't think that was particularly funny. However, I was quite happy when I found out he was kidding. That was the worst prank. Sooooo......not as bad as it could have been. (Not like the one April Fool's Day. a couple years ago, that Justin had me convinced that he & the boys had been in a car accident. "Only a minor one, so don't worry honey." Yeah.) The boys kept doing silly things like drawing on each other in their sleep, pretending to be mortally injured, things of that nature.....nothing that I fell for though. However, they did get me pretty good when they wrapped rubber bands around the faucet spray nozzle in the kitchen sink. I didn't notice the rubber bands & sprayed myself nicely. But I don't think that really counted. That prank happened on April 2nd. But really, every day is April Fool's day around here...... How Titus woke up. Big brothers decided that making him pretty in his sleep would be a good April Fool's Day joke. Mind you. He's not crying about his face. He always wakes up crabby.
The sad face Gideon gave me when I told him that he had to wait till tomorrow to eat any food. It was breakfast time. He said, "But...mama....I'm hungry!!!" I said, "APRIL FOOLS!!!!" He didn't laugh. BTW....his big brothers made him pretty too.

This was how Gideon got his shirt off on April Fool's day. I don't want to talk about it.
