A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words II

...although, as you know, I can't ever resist adding more than a few of my own.

Apparently, Georgia has come of age and now thinks she's old enough to wear makeup. This picture doesn't even do it justice. There was mascara e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e.
Thank heavens for wet wipes that get mascara out of basically everything. Except for the wet wipes box, which oddly, they didn't.

This is the Thelma to Georgia's Louise

The Ward Easter Egg Hunt

Ezra meandered his way through the hunt, discussing whether the candy inside was chocolate (ie: forbidden) or not (ie: safe), what the color of the eggs were, and tossing the occasional egg back. Georgia, on the other hand, was all business. That girl had so many eggs collected in the first three minutes that her little purple basket couldn't hold them all and was leaving a little trail of dropped eggs behind her.

Georgia gathering her loot

Scarlett looking oh-so-thrilled about the whole extravaganza

Ezra pausing before the sugar rush fully kicks in (note the self-written nametag; he was verrry proud of it)

A cute picture of my daughter that I managed to screw up by leaving the camera cord down [insert eye roll here]

A horrid picture I took of the cutest little boys, Jared and Nathan, who traded their allergy-friendly candy out for Ezra's chocolate (thanks again, Annie!)

Scarlett caught in the act of sucking on some of the kids's (wrapped) candy. She must've been getting some sugar through the paper because this was one of many she managed to get ahold of and latch onto.

The (drumroll, please) Easter Outfits

The only picture I got all Easter where all three kids were (kinda) looking at the camera, which is no small feat, believe you me.
You make it look waaay too easy, Steph.

I know, I know, the lighting is horrible, the top of Ezra's head is cut off, and you can see my hand, but don't they just look adorable?

About the mascara, once it starts it never stops. You will have to hide your mascara for the rest of you life if you don't want this to happen again.

Looooove the easter outfits! The kids are so precious. Scarlett sure is growing up fast.

Monica said...

Great pics! And such cute kiddos. Looks like they had a good time!

Liz said...

And the makeup parties start! Anna is getting more and more interested in my mascara too, and I'm just waiting for something like that to happen. I'll remember the baby wipes tip!

And I absolutely love the Easter clothes and pictures of your kids. Very sweet!

Love the first pic! Ashlyn did the same thing to her face, but with a permanent marker - count your blessings!

Jenni said...

Aww your kids are soooo stinkin' cute! I love seeing pictures of them.

Zachary said...

Umm...when exactly did your kids grow up? Seriously?

They are adorable though. Must get it from their Mom.

And yes...Ruby's Inn was fun, but it would have been 100 times better had you been there:)

What cute photos, even if your hand and camera cord are in them! Scarlet looks like a Lifferth baby, in my opinion! They are all so cute!
