Weekend in Pictures

We had a wonderful FULL weekend with my mom here, and I have about a zillion pictures to sort through. Our first order of business was to color eggs. I am constantly torn between celebrating the holiday versus buying into the mass-media secularized machine called Easter... I know I talked a bit about this at Christmas, but it still haunts me at Easter too. I don't want to not celebrate~ after all, this is the biggest, most important holiday of the year for Christians! I just get so frustrated that everything associated with the holiday is about eggs and rabbits. But I digress... I caved a bit and we colored eggs and participated in the egg hunt at church.

Remy also 'helped' Trace build the frame for the new sandbox. We just have to wait now for the sand.. Yippee!

I don't know why I try to get a posed picture of the two of them... They seem to have a penchant for saying 'cheese fries' which doesn't necessarily lend itself to the best picture faces. 

And then 'crazy pirate guy' shows up... (which Halle thinks is hilarious!)

As good as it gets

And this last one is of 'Super Halle'. My mom made Halle a cape, similar to the one she made for Remy. It has a crown and the letter 'H' on the back. As soon as she put it on, Halle said 'Duper Halle' and seemed to walk like royalty. The boa and fuzzy slippers really completed the outfit!
I hope you had a great weekend~ Happy Monday!
