Happy Easter!

We hope everyone had a very Happy Easter! Gran and Pops went to church with us and then we went to eat breakfast at Cracker Barrel. When we were done with that, we went to their house so the boys could get their Easter baskets and they also had a surprise - they got a new basketball goal! We didn't hunt Easter eggs - I'm sure they didn't miss it being that they had never done it before :). They did do a good job of emptying their eggs of the goodies that were inside though. Here are some more pictures from the day...

Pops must be saying something really important here
because both boys are paying really close attention

Carson was very "Hoppy"

When we got finished at Gran & Pops', they boys were SO tired, so we took them home and let them take a nap. Afterwards, we went to Aunt Dodo's (what the boys say) to see William and Abbey and Goodmommy & Gooddaddy. The boys got to stay and play and then go spend the night with Goodmommy & Gooddaddy. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera. It was a very full and exciting day!

Well, as anyone living around here knows, it snowed ALOT yesterday. The boys didn't seem too interested in it at first, but as more accumulated on the ground, they started paying more attention to it out the window. They would look out and say "no," (meaning snow). They even had to tell it bye bye when they went to bed - and when they took their naps today.

It was way too cold and windy to go out yesterday while it was snowing, but this morning was perfect for some outside play. So, Phillip and I got the boys all bundled up and let them play in the snow for the first time ever.

At first Hayden wasn't quite so sure what to do. He just stood in one place for a while, but then got the hang of walking in it. Carson took off from the beginning. Their Daddy even let them eat some snow - they really seemed to like that.

Here is a video of the boys' first time in the snow.

Carson & Daddy watching the 4-wheeler. It is funny that I got this picture of Carson, because it was Hayden who seemed so interested. I guess they are both going to be like their Daddy and like things that go "brrrrm."
Here is one more video. Phillip was throwing snowballs at Hayden and Hayden was making the funniest faces. Unfortunately, you can't see his face that well. But, if you listen closely, you can hear that sweet laugh of his.
