The hunt is on

Our annual church Easter egg hunt was on Saturday. It was rather chilly at first but thankfully it warmed up by the time we got around to hunting the eggs. I hate not being able to see both the boys hunt eggs since they are in different age groups but we always hunt them again on Easter Sunday so that makes up for it a little bit.

Wesley did good but he would get several eggs in the basket and then wanted to dump them out. He got bored very fast and decided he would just rather throw rocks in the gravel lot instead.

Max filled his basket all the way to the top and was very proud of himself. He tried to help Wesley hunt some when he was finished but Wes really didn't care.

We enjoyed a lunch of hot dogs and chips in the fellowship hall. Max won the big prize for his age group, a big stuffed duck, which the boys have fought over for days. Wesley likes to squash his mouth and say "Quack, quack", in a surprising low voice. Which then sends Max over the edge, "Don't touch my duck!" Seriously, the boys can fight over anything. I bet it is going to stay that way for a long time!

Keep looking for all the Easter activities to follow this week: Easter cookies, dying eggs, Easter Sunday, and more egg hunting! I love Easter!!!!

Ready or not, here he comes!

Man, that was one good nap!

The true sign of when I know Wesley has had a really good nap? His hair! This is his best yet!

Maxism for the week 3/8/2010

Man, I know it's been another long laps in Maxisms! I know you love them as much as I do, so here goes!

During our last snow day, he looked out the window and said. "When the snow makes big flakes, it's called big flakin." (I have to do it in the in' without the g because that is how my country boy says it!)

After another snow day, he looked out the window and said, "It's beautiful! I just like a winter wonderland!"

"Mommy what is the name of that song we sang, that says he punched me to victory?" He was talking about Victory in Jesus, he plunged me to victory.

"We won't be sinners in heaven, will we? When you get hungry, Jesus will feed you. When you are thirsty, He will give you a drink."

"You have got to see this! There is a dog wearing glasses. You won’t' believe it!"

"A d is a line with a fat belly."

"Wow! That was delightful!"

"If you poot in the oven, it would explode!" I told him we didn't need to test that theory out.

"Real cowboys have a horse and a gun."
