eggs, glorious eggs

our first time dyeing eggs!
i was a little worried and made the kids strip down to their skivvies.
auntie rikki came over for the festivities!
all of the "cool" eggs were done by her artistic hand. she is so talented in so many ways. everything she does deserves extreme wootness... can i get a woot woot!

somehow rik is always able to bring out the goof (or doof, take your pick) in me... and i LOVE it!
we took a walk down memory lane and listened to music that we loved way back when. for those that grew up around here- they were songs that made it onto the "high 5 at 9" on b103.9 in the 90's. you know, like, coolio's Gangsters Paradise and mariah carey's Always Be My Baby. it was awesome to reminisce and dance. chris is such a good sport to let me be so silly at times. i just use the excuse that at this stage in life, the kids enjoy it when mom is goofy!

i found these pics of our little tooter on the camera. he was 4 days old and sweet as can be.

our charlie has stolen my heart.
he has created a bond that i have never felt before. i love all of my kids each in their own way... and charlie has a very special way. from the moment we found out about baby #3, i prayed that this little person would have a calming influence in our home. charlie has brought a feeling of peace that i know was an answer to those many prayers. not a day goes by where i dont think to myself that he has a very important work to do on this earth. there is a look in his eye that tells me he is a special son of Heavenly Fathers. there have been many nights that i have stayed awake thinking about what an amazing spirit is in that tiny body. i dont know how we got so lucky to have him be a part of our family, but my gratitude is beyond words. i love this sweet boy of ours.

I love all of your posts. I can't believe your beautiful, long hair!! And of course, your kids are such cuties. So fun that your sister has moved home. I can't wait to be near all my sisters again!

You are the cutest mom and your kids are so adorable. I hope that one day I can grow up to be like you! I guess I should hurry and catch up. We are like a month apart and you are 3 kids up on me already! :) I hope you had a Happy Easter.
