Lindsay used her bucket from school today to pick up eggs at the night time Egg hunt in the city of Acworth. We really need to find her actual Easter Basket over the next week!
Brooke used her Easter Basket minus Easter Grass so she would have plenty of room for eggs. Alas, she only got around 6 or 7.

The girls smile and say EASTER for dad taking pictures!

Mommy tried to dress the girls in similar colors so we could keep up with them easily in the masses of people we were crowded with!

Since we had such a busy day with Egg hunts we never got around to making a very important phone call to the girls cousin Derek who turned 13 on Friday March 30th!

Happy Birthday Derek Have an AWESOME Spring Break and we'll see you Easter Sunday!

We love you!

Uncle Mike, Aunt Chris, Lindsay & Brooke

Lindsay's class lined up waiting to go fetch their numbered Easter Eggs!
Each student had to bring in a gallon milk or juice jug so they could make their Easter Buckets for the Egg Hunt! Mom is standing behind Lindsay and from L-R is Shania, Lindsay, Nathaniel and Emma. Dad is of course taking the photo.

Ms. Chee-How counted them down 3, 2, 1...There they go!!!

Each student had a number on their bucket matching the number's on the eggs they are allowed to hunt. Lindsay was number 8, so she got to pick up any egg with an 8 on it. I thought that was a pretty cool way to make sure all 19 kid's got the same amount of eggs! :)

Lindsay in action!

It was just about to pour at the time of the egg hunt, Lindsay's class was very lucky. Just about the same time they got finished it started to rain and none of us got wet.

Lindsay's friend Emma in action looking for all of the number 9's!

Meleah looking VERY serious as she is searching for her eggs!!

Lindsay is very excited because this egg contained Mommy's nemesis PLAY-DOUGH!

Mommy was worried that Brooke would feel bad, since she was not part of the egg hunt. So Mommy brought Brooke her own special egg from our stash of leftovers at home and surprised her! Look at her SMILE!!

Lindsay with her class "Bestie" Meleigh!

Meleigh and her mommy and baby sis were just about to head home for the day.

Thank you Sarah for the made from SCRATCH beautiful Easter cookies you brought in today and thank you for sending us home with some leftover's.

Mike and I took the girls tonight to the city of Acworth for one of the first night time Egg Hunts around. They were giving flash lights to the kid's and sending them out in age groups from ages 1-3 and kindergarten thru 2nd graders, then everyone else thru grade 5.

I will post photos from that adventure next. Unfortunately we were running late and the flash lights were all gone but, at least the girls got some eggs. Brooke's age group went without her so Daddy sent Brooke out with Lindsay's age group so he could watch them both!

Today 3/25/2012 we celebrated Rylann Smith's 3rd birthday at a place called Catch Air

Here is Lindsay on their Beach Ball Merry-Go-round. Everyone had a great time!

Rylann the "Birthday Girl" is riding with Brooke and Rylann's second cousin Lilly behind her.

Rylann really enjoyed her third birthday, and she has a lot of little friends that love her bunches!!

Rylann's mommy Missy is sitting next to Lindsay and her other daughter Graison (Lindsay's B.F.F since she was born) waiting for Rylann to come around on the small Merry-go-round.

Lindsay in Pink and Graison in Blue!!

Graison has a beautiful smile!!

Birthday girl heads for the LIGHT UP DANCE FLOOR!!

It's like a DISCO for Toddler's!! LOL!!!

HELLO KITTY came out to help say "Happy Birthday" to Rylann!!! Judging by that face, I think Rylann likes Hello Kitty!!

Lindsay was okay hugging Hello Kitty but, she was more concerned about Sponge Bob showing up! That is who they sent out for the "BOY" parties, and Lindsay wanted NOTHING AT ALL TO DO with SPONGE BOB!!!

Not to sure what this gesture means, I will have to ask her Mommy?! But, it sure was cute!!

Again, it's just the CUTEST thing...

Lindsay & Rylann (Lindsay open those eyes girlie!!)

YAY!! Here comes Brooke out of the slide and Uncle Paul is right behind her!!

Our Brookie LOVES to slide!! As you can see by that smile.

Lindsay is all dizzy after Daddy spun her like a top.

Brooke and Lindsay sit with all of the other kids and wait to go into the party room for cake. If you notice, Lindsay is looking stressed because she is watching out for Sponge Bob!

The line to go in the party room.

Big Sis and Lil' sis share the Chair Of Honor.

Lindsay and Brooke share a table with Kiri and Riley Quigg.

Everyone sings while Rylann looks at her THREE candles on her cupcake.

Rylann blows them all out with a LITTLE help from Daddy!!

Daddy gives Rylann a little taste of her icing off of the candles.

Rylann chose a GREEN cupcake for her first pick.

How cute is she? Rylann knows she's THREE!!

Brooke also wanted a green cupcake.

Mommy's Favorite picture of the day Brooke's pig-tails flying high, and she is catching some major air!

Another good Action shot of Brookie!! The kid's had a blast hanging out after the party until it was time for dinner. Then we went to our neighbor Megan's Burger King to see her and eat dinner and play on their playfort!

Lindsay LOVES to jump!!


Mike finally got Lindsay to go down the big slide she was avoiding all day! Birthday's are the BEST! Lindsay and Brooke are constantly asking how much longer til their birthday's, it is so cute!
