Easter 2010

Easter is a very busy holiday for us, as most are. We are so grateful that we have several places that we go to each holiday!

Growing up, my family always visited my grandmother's house each holiday, so it's important to me to continue to go there with my children.
(Duke and Molly with Nanny Finley, which is their Great Grandmother)

Saturday, we visited Nanny and Pawpaw Finley along with Paw paw Jerry, Aunt Joy, Uncle Scott and Gavin. Nanny ALWAYS has the table set so beautifully! The talent that this woman has is just unbelievable. This was her table setting this year! Isn't it beautiful!

It's always great to spend time with them! This year, Aunt Joy brought in Duke and Molly's goody bags and one of the things in it was noise putty! OMG! We all laughed so HARD! It was by far the best spent dollar EVER. If you've never heard of it, it is putty that makes toot noises when you push your fingers into the tub. We all laughed at Duke and Molly until we were teared up and choking! If your children don't have it..... you've got to get it. Here are some pics of these two goof's making their toot noises!

(Think nothing of the cleats! They stayed the night with Pawpaw and I sent brown flops and when I showed up, he had his cleats on. Oh well!)

I still crack up when I think about how much fun they had with this stuff!

Duke and Molly had their first of three egg hunts there. The two of them and Gavin (who is getting a little older now) are the only children on this side of the family, even so, the egg hunt is always fun!

We woke up Sunday morning and found that the Easter Bunny did indeed visit our house!
Duke and Molly each had a basket of goodies!

Duke and Molly with their new sun glasses from their Easter baskets. It's not the best Easter pic, but it was the best I could get!

After Church on Sunday, we headed to the Barnett Easter Dinner. There are way too many of them to name and unlike on my side of the family, Duke and Molly have lots of children to play with on this side.
After dinner, we went out for the egg hunt. Again, it was exciting for them and they had a blast.

Before leaving, Duke and Molly got an Easter basket from Nana and Pops. Aunt Kesha, Uncle Mickey and Gavin were there for the fun.

Once we have spent some quality time with Nana and Pops.... it's off to Nina and Papa's (my mom and step-dad). There we spend time with Amy and Chris and Marty and Tatum. As soon as we got there, Duke jumped on his dirt bike and took off!

After eating, the kids opened their 3rd Easter basket, this time from Nina and Papa,

and got to do ANOTHER egg hunt! It's like they've never done it.
They are just as excited as they are the first time.
Papa gives Molly a hint!

And, as always, Nina hides and egg for the grown kids! It has money so we are all wanting to find it! I found it last year and Chad found it this year!

Just as any other holiday, this one was great! We have such a large combined family.
Our children have more love than they can imagine!
I'm so proud of my little family of four!
