Easter with the Six-pack

Whew! What a crazy weekend, but it is over and it was a success. We had an Easter Egg Hunt in the park across the street from our house despite the 25 degree temps. There were approx. 150 people and we went through a 42 cup pot of coffee & one of hot water for cider and hot chocolate. It was COLD, but the kids had a great time and we were able to do the Resurrection Egg Story with the kids.
Sunday morning, was equally successful. Mike did a great job teaching with a very evangelistic message. He even had several people crying - good tears. We got great responses on the Communication Cards and had 70 people(mostly visitors) attending. That makes for a lot of cookies baking in my oven today to deliver!!! Yeah, God!!!

We came home (exhausted) and had a family celebration. Mikes parents came down from Roundup (real name of town) and we had a great family time.

Now for your viewing pleasure...our attempt to get a good family picture. I think the progression is hilarious. Judson just keeps getting farther and farther away, and Meredith starts her model posing. Jeffrey was really not interested in getting his picture taken and Morgan thought it was all fun!

Jeffrey says, "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!"
Mommy says, "Noooooooooooooooooo!"

Switch little kids and Judson starts to sneak off.
Meredith says, "I'm trying to stand still and smile!"
Meredith: see my beautiful dress!
Mommy tries to get Jarrett to stop being goofy.
Everybody wiggle now!
Morgan thinks it's all FUN!
Can we please be done?
Meredith, "look, I can make my arms disappear!

In reality, this was the first picture we took.

We probably should have stopped there!!!!

But it was hysterical to watch as I tried to get them all to look at me at the same time, I just had to keep trying.

Very cute! It's hysterical to watch the progression - and I definitely understand as we couldn't even get a decent pic with just the 2 kiddos

(BTW, love your haircut!! You've probably had it for months now, but it's new to me!)

This looks all too familiar. I usually take about 30 pictures, and hope that I at least get one good one! :)
I love the coordinating outfits. You have a BEAUTIFUL family!
