My Easter Babes

I think I said something like, "Welcome restful April" in my last blog post. HAHAHA! Now that was a funny joke. Man life is crazy busy around here. But I'm busy with good things. Schooling the kids, participating in Grace Church life, making new meals, going on dates with my husband, occasionally attempting to restore some order and cleanliness back into our home. In all of this, I wouldn't change a thing. Especially my four little ones. Man I love them. I have enjoyed seeing how Alexie has changed the dynamics of our family. It has brought out such strength and new dynamics in each of their personalities. We are having a BLAST with her!

With some help from Nana I got the kids special outfits for Easter this year. Matching ones for Rylee & Alexie. Rylee was quite thrilled! I felt we were past due for some pictures of all the kids so I took them out the night before Easter for a mini photo session.

I had the brilliant idea of suggesting Trevor & Rylee getting a picture together. That didn't go so well. Rare form I tell you. I should have known better.

Trevor embraced the idea so sweetly. Rylee, not so much. "His hands are dirty!" He'll ruin my pretty dress!" Oh man. But what followed is some of the sweetest pictures.

Taylor comforted the big crocodile tears off of his face in such motherly fashion.
As we went to leave Rylee came around and asked Trevor if she could take a picture with him now. I did not pose these, just stood back and watched.

I'm so blessed to be a mother to these four sweet babies!

Oh my gosh! Sweetest kissy picture ever! Frame that and put it on the wall, it's simply precious.

Love them all Tara! They brought tears to my eyes. We need to get out there to have you take some pictures of our family.

ahhh Tara, this makes me excited for our own changes as we make the change to four in a few months! Sibling relationships - the good and the bad- are just so beautiful.

Beautiful family! May God continue to bless you... I had to stop by your blog since I was up at the Rio Vista complex. Is your church still meeting there!
