Easter Celebrations

Easter morning was quiet because we'd gone to service the night before.  I enlisted help with preparations where I could.

 And then the family descended, totaling 41 people!!

 Not enough chairs?  No problem!

Shaun staggered the kids being released to help make it fair.


Awesome Uncle Nathan came early with ropes and put up two swings in the yard.  They get used a ton and hopefully having the second one with alleviate some of the fighting.

 Uncle Nathan created a scavenger hunt for the teen boys.  They went out on foot and didn't return for several hours, except to refuel.  They definitely got more than they bargained for.  :)

 In total, we had 19 1/2 kids!  Here's 18...
 ...the is sweet #19
...and this is #1/2 ;), who we'll meet in July!

Then the sorting and swapping begins.  The bigger kids tend to profit from these negotiations.  :)


 Love, love, love having the house and yard full of family!  We are blessed beyond measure!

Looks like a great time! I love the pictures of the kids running around looking for eggs - so intent!
