Easter 2012

 The friday before Easter my mom and I took the kids to meet the Easter bunny at the mall. The picture packages were ridiculous and the Bunny was ugly so we just met the bunny and called it good:) Ben was perfectly fine with that so it worked out. Saturday morning we met with some friends at the park for an Easter egg hunt.


Ben was all about the hunt this year--the holidays get more and more fun as he gets older. 

Blake was only a week and a half old but it was EASTER and I was feeling ok so we decided to brave church--for Sacrament meeting at least. The Easter bunny conveniently decided to wait and come during church so mom could help him get things together.
Ben's aunts Beck and Cait spoiled him with Easter books and stuffed animals. 

it was a bit bright but this is our best attempt at sibling Easter pics in the backyard
My mom--I don't know what I would have done without her! She took the early am shift with Ben and/or baby so I could sleep a little, we made fun meals, had small little outings each day, she was my nurse after unexpected c-section and when I had a spinal leak & INSANE spinal headaches, she was Ben's playmate and buddy, she weeded my yard, we bonded with m&m's and other treats, we went on SLOW walks around the neighborhood, and we wept when she had to leave. It was a wonderful trip and I got her for 2 whole weeks which was wonderful especially with my c-section. She is my best friend and an amazing example of being a mom--I COULD not wish for any better footsteps to follow in. 

of course Ben had to mow in between pictures...this kid mows the lawn ALL the time! too bad his mower doesn't actually mow or we, and our neighbors, would have the best manicured lawn in town! 

We had Easter dinner with a lot of friends at the Staller's house. My mom did the ham and a yummy dessert and got to meet most of our friends:) Its so nice to have close friends we can spend holidays with.
