Easter 2011

The Dails were gracious enough to have yet another Easter Egg Hunt at their house. It has become a very nice tradition and one the kids really enjoy. Mommy leads the troops down the driveway and toward the Dails where the eggs are awaiting. C.M. & L.C. are eager to get this party started! Caroline has done a great job hiding the eggs. Sort of hard to find some that are hidden in the bushes...can you spot it?







Even the ones hidden in the grass are VERY HIDDEN!



A nice little snap shot just before the chaos....and...



THEY'RE OFF!!!!!!!!!



The boys helped the girls and C.M. get into the swing of things.



L.C. was very happy to be a part of this year's hunt!



Although C.M. is a Rookie this year, he quickly learned what it was all about and showed signs of being a seasoned veteran Easter Egg Hunter!



Of course, this is just old hat to L.C.!



T.H. helps C.M. stuff his basket even more!



J.T. gets her biggest brother to help her score some eggs!



L.C. was ready for a photo op at any and every moment...



...while J.T. used her sisters vanity to her advantage and kept scouring the back yard for more eggs!



But even the humblest of the hunters take time for a quick pic!



...and even the youngest get in on the act too!



Now the big kids turn! GO!!!!



L.C. keeps an eye on T.H. & C.H. to make sure they play fair.



I.C. & C.H. look through the bushes with their eagle eyes trying to find each and every hidden egg.



After it was all over...and naps for everyone...our family went to Easter Mass. Here, Mommy sits with the Egg Hunters outside Church.



Daddy's turn! We had a wonderful Easter and are greatful that God blessed us with heath, happiness, and a very close & loving family!

Girls "salon time" at Pigtails & Crewcuts

Mommy & Daddy treated L.C. & JBug to a fun Saturday morning in Little Rock at Pigtails & Crewcuts to get a much needed trim. It is a cool little place and the girls had a nice time too...just see for yourself and judge just how L.C. and then JBug felt about it!


First L.C.

WOW! What a day this has already been!
I mean...let me just tell you!

First of all...Mommy & Daddy woke me up WAAAAY to early!

Fed me cinnamon rolls & milk...yeah, I know...cinnamon rolls!

and the milk...not EVEN cold enough!

Then they drag me down here to my hair sculptress...

...and don't even have the decency to have a pedicure and manicure set up for me. I'm a delicate flower...how am I supposed to deal with this?!?!

This life...this life...is getting unbearable!

How ever shall I survive these...my single digit years?

sigh...and to top it off...my sucker is almost gone!

And JBug's take...


HEEEY! Let ME tell you about my day so far!

First of all, I got a GREAT night's sleep and then got to come here and sit in a police car...yeah...a POLICE CAR!! and wear a penguin cover...yep...you heard me...a PENGUIN COVER!

Then I got a sucker.....FORRRRRRR FREE!

And then I met this nice lady who did my hair up right!

and then....hey....I wonder how fast I could get this thing going if I were to head down a smoothly paved road with a 45 degree angle, with the wind to my back, and no restrictor plate in place...

I wonder if the suspension on an older model like this would even hold up at that speed and under that much stress...

oh well...just a thought...hehe...look at my hair! It's the newest craze in New York, Paris, and Milan!



And now the finished product for both LC & JBug...


Wow...I make me look good!

Yep...I make us both look really good!
