We had a busy Easter weekend.  We went to 3 Easter celebrations in just 2 days.  It was so much fun to watch Camdyn and Cade hunt eggs this year because they really understood what to do.  Below are my kids with their cousins, Colin and Brylee, at our family reunion - our first stop on Saturday.

Brenna hunting eggs with her cute Easter bunny ears on.
I love this picture.  I told Camdyn to kiss Cade, and they actually kissed each other.  Usually when I ask, they say "noooo" and push each other away.  They can be sweet - sometimes!

Cade hunting eggs at Grannie Stahmer's house - our second stop on Saturday.

Brenna posing for a quick picture between hunting eggs.  I love this adorable outfit Aunt April got her.  She looks like such a big girl.

 Camdyn checking out her Easter loot.

"That's my egg!"  This is a more realistic picture than the kissing one above on how they get along.

Jim's family is huge!  My kids always have so much fun going to family get-togethers because there are tons of kids.  Grannie Stahmer has 14 great grandkids with 2 more on the way (not from us!)  The kids all went to the park about a block away while the Easter bunny came.  When they got back the ground was covered in eggs and candy. 

 My 3 little Easter cuties.

Cade was torn between hunting more eggs and checking out what was in the eggs he already had in his basket.

Jim's side of the family.

On  Sunday morning, we went to church.  This was the best shot we could get of all of us.  It's never easy to get a picture with everyone cooperating when you have two 2 year olds!

After church, we headed to my Granny's house for Easter.  On the way, we stopped to pick wildflowers to make Easter nests.  Camdyn is showing me the "putty fwowas" she picked.

I think this picture looks so pretty of Brenna.  Her hot pink dress looks great with the pink buttercups.

On the way home, we had some really tired kids.  They were exhausted from all of the Easter festivities.  It was a great Easter!

Hi Michelle - I've never commented on your blog, but I follow you regularly. Our timelines are kind of the same. Things go bad in April and a discharge in August of 2010. This being the 3rd year for me as well, I do see that it gets easier, but I also find the emotions of gratitude are so incredibly overwhelming. Witnessing our children doing what we never thought they would or could do is breathtaking!! Thanks for sharing your journey!
