Easter Weekend!

Saturday morning, I got my hair cut and colored.  4 inches gone, and we finally found my natural hair color.  This matched my roots perfectly.  Third time’s a charm, I guess :)


Saturday afternoon, we headed over to Jenny’s house so the boys could do an Easter egg hunt together (there is a group of about 5 of us that only have boys :) ).  I left my camera over there (bad, blurry iPhone pics from here on out), but the boys were so funny “finding” their eggs that were all hidden in plain sight.  This was the first time Cooper learned that sometimes, candy is inside of those eggs.  He kept trying to eat the wrapped candy.  The boys all had fun playing and I got some sweet baby snuggles with the two newborns that were there :)

On Sunday morning, the Easter bunny came.38

“ELMO!!!” Just a few weeks ago, we turned on Sesame Street for the first time, and Cooper started yelling “ELMO! ELMO!”.  What on earth?  We asked my dad, and they have never watched Sesame Street or anything Elmo.  He must have learned about him at school?  I have no idea, but it was hilarious, and now he is obsessed.  When we go over his letters in the bathtub, he now says “ELMO!” for pretty much every letter. Probably because I laugh every time.  He says it in a super cute way, too.  Kind of like “emooooo!”, and always with the exclaimation point :)

After church, we headed over to my parents’ house for lunch.  Cooper got to hold “Belle Belle”, and he loved it.


Easter egg hunt on the back porch!


My parents had put 2 M&M’s in each egg, and Cooper was so excited when he realized that.  He insisted that when he found an egg, he had to immediately open it and shove the candy into his mouth.  It was hilarious!  He was shoving those things in there so fast.

He kept saying “more more” and “yummy” and rubbing his belly.


You never would have known that Lee and I had to run over and sit down fast while Cooper was being still so we could try and get a picture.  Yay for a family pic!


Someone had a fun day :)


Hope you all had a great Easter!
