Happy Easter!

Only two weeks after the fact. That's pretty good I think. We had a wonderful day filled with our church family, Easter egg hunts, food and plenty of friends. We started the day by having the kids find their Easter baskets and of course they ate some of the candy. This turned out to be most of their breakfast I think. After we got dressed we tried to get a family picture before we left for church to make sure the kids were still presentable. We did okay I think, although we didn't get any of just the boys together with their matching outfits, sorry Grammy. Joshua wanted to video tape this special occasion. Isn't he cute modeling his argyle socks!

I love how Joshua and Nicholas are holding hands. They really do love each other.
We then headed to church, arrived a little late as usual, scurried Nicholas up on stage to sing his song, which of course he didn't. He will sing at home, but not in front of a crowd, especially one on Easter Sunday that was full to capacity.
After they sang Joshua and I headed to the nursery. We had a wonderful time with all the little ones and adults too. They even got to make little bags for the Easter Egg Hunt. When church was over, which I hear was a great service with some amazing music, we rushed outside to see the kids gather eggs. Nicholas made it outside before I had a chance too so I was late in capturing the moment, but did get some of it. His bag was already full by the time I saw him running around.
Joshua decided to make a friend with Carl during this time. That might be due to the fact that he opened an egg for him and gave him jelly beans. They were cute together and Joshua went right to him which is unusual at this point in time. I was glad for the open arm.
We then headed over to our friends the Roberson's for lunch. They invited all of us that don't have family in town to join them. We celebrated with them last year and were excited to do it again this year. Shea always decorates to the tea and has set-ups for the children too. We all bring a dish or two and then chow down. Everything was yummy and the company was great as always. All the kids ate outside and didn't bother us too much which is always a plus. We are blessed to have such wonderful friends to celebrate with.
After we ate we gathered all the children for the Easter Egg Hunt. They were all waiting in anticipation to get outside and find all the candy filled eggs. This picture, by the way, only shows half of the children.

Now, if you didn't think these boys looked alike to begin with, check out these series of pictures. The expressions on their faces are almost identical. It is funny. They were very intent on getting into their eggs and enjoying the "goodness".
Joshua thought it would be cool to take Nicholas' basket, along with his, and see how far he could get with them. Good thing Nicholas wasn't paying attention. Sneaky fella he is.
Another attempt at a family picture.
Joshua and his buddy Carl.
The whole gang- Emerson's, Khan's, Roberson's, Hammond's, Ross', Rogers'

Two tuckered out boys. They partied hard, however, they didn't take long naps like you think they would have. Nicholas actually perked right up when we got home and played with his trains and Joshua only slept an hour or so. Silly boys.
We had a blessed Easter. Hope you did too!

Great pictures! I love the boys' matching outfits. They are too precious.
