Easter! (A Week Late!)

I am a day late and a dollar short. Or, um, 7 days late and lots of dollars short. I am always short on dollars. I have teenagers, you know. They have some sort of sixth sense where extra dollars--or any dollars, for that matter--are concerned and so if I have a dollar, it soon belongs to someone else. Le sigh.

Anyway! Easter! A week ago! Big fun! Lots of pictures! Let's get started! Enough with the exclamation points already!

This is my youngest nephew, Tommy. When you tell him he is handsome, he will tell you, "No. I cute."

This boy loves M&M's. Especially the blue ones. Do not ask him to share them. He will tell you, "No. I eating ALL of dees." Yep. That's pretty much how I feel about M&M's, too.

The younger kids dyed eggs. I'm not sure what Mike was saying, but I'm scared. 

There were several games of catch.

The under 13's that still get to hunt for eggs. It was Jill's last year. Don't worry, Jill. Next year you can hide someone's eggs in impossible to get to places just like your siblings hide yours. 
Sometimes eggs hide in plain sight.

I'm not really sure why he's grumpy. It's not like his eggs were hidden in dirt and stagnant water in a flower pot. Oh wait. Yes they were.

Jill's egg. Her brother climbed the tree to put it there. Fortunately, her sibs helped her get it down.

See? I wasn't kidding. But what's a little soil on your jellybeans?

Her egg was hidden in the glove. It took a very frustrating game of  "Hot/Cold" and about 5 minutes for her to finally find it. 

Candy makes him do a happy dance. I totally get this.
The pinata rope was tangled. Just how many grandchildren does it take to detangle it? (Answer: In the end, one. Jack climbed out to the end of a very skinny branch while his grandmother covered her eyes and fixed it.)

Tommy takes a whack at the pinata.

Mary hits it like she's picturing a face on it. Probably her Uncle Jon's. ;)

Mike brought it down.

At most parties, you expect someone to put a lampshade on their head. We like to be a little different in our family.

I have no idea what they are talking about, but I could write about a million captions for this picture. If you want to write your own caption, leave it in the comments. I could write a whole 'nother post based solely on this picture.

They clean up well. Even if they are a little squinty-eyed in the sunlight. 
Whew! That feels like a weight was lifted from my shoulders. I just know that all y'all out there in the innernets were wondering where all my Easter pictures were. I could feel the questions. Or something.

I'm hoping to get more than one post out this week. That would be something, wouldn't it? We'll see, though. I meet with my personal trainer today. Tomorrow I may wish for someone to push me off a ledge.
