Easter best

I really don't know how it happened, but on Easter morning we had everyone dressed and ready to go with time to spare. Maybe we had super late church? I don't know and I don't care....

We jumped on the opportunity to get a couple photos of the six sweeties in their Easter finery.

The bookends: Ethan and Everly


Laney posing with her basket.

Anna with her tight cheeks.

Megan feeling embarrassed to smile.

The three big girls together while we wait for the boys to come out.

Miles and miles of cheeks

I like this one because it shows their personalities....

And I couldn't resist this one with Anna's funny smile and Laney's signature wink.

Laney's 5th birthday

I did this thing....I promised the kids that they could all have a REAL birthday party this year.

Like with friends and balloons and games and gifts.

I'm not great at this stuff, but Laney was at one of her friends birthday parties earlier in the year and the look on that girls face....


I knew we had to do that for her so she could feel that feeling of being the special one.

So we booked the local skating rink and we invited all the shorties.

Mathew spent most of his time on his bickies.

And we learned to be very grateful for skating assistance contraptions.

I loved seeing Laney with her friends....

And with her little sis...

We whipped up some owly cupcakes

And we partied! She was the center of attention! And I loved it.

I love her.
