My "Peeps"

We had a great Easter weekend full of more egg hunts than we needed, a random puffy swollen red eye (not pink eye, but mystery eye that the dr. thought something got in Hunty's eye and infected it but now he is fine) and discussions of why Jesus died and came back to life which was confusing for my little boys.  They know Jesus and will tell you they have Jesus in their heart, but the resurrection part is hard to grasp.
Maundy Thursday and Good Friday were especially difficult for them to understand.  But I figure each year it will get a little easier for them.

Hunty and one of his best buddies Johnny

Enjoying popsicles to beat the heat on Saturday

Easter morning we woke up in time to see if the Easter bunny came before church

Hunting for eggs the bunny hid

See Hunty's eye?  It was swollen almost shut!

And they found their baskets!

The bunny brought him Batman Crocs that he has been wanting, but bless his heart he could only see them with one eye.

Walking into church with a flower for the flower cross

Seeing Mimi and Da...we had given Hunty Benadryl for his eye by this point so he was a little out of it

Going to Mimi and Das after church for Easter lunch...and getting some "peas and carrots"

Making an attempt to take a good picture of the boys...not sure why we even try.  But I suppose a good laugh is just as good

A quick visit to see Nonnie

Another hunt at Mimi and Da's house

Some yummy desserts

And then a little backyard brotherly love rivalry...


  1. I loved all the pictures! The boys are so handsome and I can't get over how grown up they look. Tear!! yall are such a beautiful family! And good grief those desserts look divine!

  2. I second everything that Margaret said. And your house looks beautiful! I can't wait to see it!

  3. I can't get over how grown up they are!! And that blue dress looked stunning on you! Seriously, so beautiful.

  4. Well, your boys look just as grown up as Nicholas turning 5. Crazy on all fronts. Looks like you had a wonderful Easter. I hope to get my post up soon. And yes, Burt did score a 201 bowling. He wished it was more :-)

  5. SUCH a fun Easter! Sad about poor Hunty's eye, but glad he is better! Those pictures of them together are too cute and funny and something they will treasure forever and love looking back on. What a special bond they have!

  6. Happy Easter!! Hunter-man and Drake are looking like big boys now! I love the picture of Hunter with his Easter crocs all teased with his tongue :)

  7. LOVE Hunter and Drakes Easter outfits. Sooo sweet. You looked beautiful as usual! Happy Easter

  8. Hey Caroline!
    So nice to "meet" you. :) Your family is precious. And I can relate to not being able to get a good shot of the boys. I'm about ready to give up completely! Glad to have found your blog! I look forward to following along!
