snapshots part deux

OK friends, are you ready for some more "snapshots"? If you didn't read my previous post, a snapshot is just that... Very little post-processing, no worrying about the techincal issues, just finding a balance between capturing some good shots and being there in the moment with the kids.

This is part 2 of our Easter Sunday. I had SO many pictures, I thought I'd split them up. AND...we haven't even had Easter at our house yet! There were so many festivities on Sunday, we thought we'd wait a few extra days and enjoy it all the more.

So let's begin. This is the celebration at my parents' house. Oh my goodness, that little dress. I could take pictures of it all day. She had a beautiful little white sweater that I bought to go with the dress, but it was stained approximately 2.5 seconds after I put it on her. Yes, really. If she wasn't barging around the nursery at church like a maniac, running over unsuspecting crawlers with her little push-cart, I'm afraid she would have been cold.

I have so few pictures of all three kids together. Note to self: take more!
Photobucket

Ha ha! That sneaky little sis. She broke away from the pack, and found an egg that everyone else missed.
Photobucket

She accidentally made eye contact with me. At least she remembered to purse her lips together and frown.
Photobucket

Will, oh will her royal majesty approve of this gift??? ... Wait for it...
Photobucket

Yes! It is acceptable! The little horse in the box plays music. These are her 'dance moves.'
Photobucket

OK everyone. Get ready for it. Hold on to your hats and get ready for my blog debut. Here I am! The first picture of me on the blog! Yes, well, I don't have body issues. I have face issues. (ie: my nose is the size of Rhode Island, and sadly the camera dislikes me. Very very much). *sigh* Let's just crop off my head and call it good.

Collin got a carrying case for all his DSI games.

Oh, how Drew has waited for this day. Collin got a Nintendo DSI a long time ago, and they have had to share. Well, share no more my friends!

Let's see if I can recall the conversation. It went something like "Look, Livia, you're supposed to climb on the nice little horsie. See? Daddy will help you."
Photobucket

Oh there was no climbing. No graceful riding of ponies. More like "Hey dad! Move it or lose it!"
Photobucket

Oh! She's spotted something!
Photobucket

This is what she does when we say "Sissy going nite-nites." ;-)
Photobucket

A beautiful gift from my parents.
Photobucket

Someone please pull me away from the flowers. I could take pictures of them all day.
Photobucket

Here they are planted in my yard.
Photobucket

I love this picture of my boys. Drew needed help on his DSI, and who did he call for help? Not mom, not dad, not grandma or grandpa. His big brother, of course. I love watching these two grow up together.

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend! Stay tuned for the 3rd and final round of Easter pictures. They will be coming soon. :-)
