Easter fun ~ Welch style

Well, when my girls see the sun peeking out through the clouds they think warm and then . . . they think swimsuits. That does sound a bit mild for what actually happens. They scream for joy, sprint up the stairs two at a time and fling their clothes on the floor and grab the nearest suit. How could you resist joining in if you were a little girl, too? Well on Easter we had our GREAT friends the Byington's over and at the first sun break Emma and her friend Alexis came out in this ~ acting goofy. All of the children and the Byington girls had so much fun and really , I did have TONS of Blog worthy pictures, but these were by far the funnest ones and the ones that de-bunnified the day.

Easter moring we left here for our church's 9am brunch Nolen and Ty in their slacks and tie's and the girls fully Spring-y in their beautiful dresses and got home around 1:30. When the Byington's got here it was full speed ahead and they skated and played and ATE all day and by the time the Bible was read and the psalms were sung we saw this on the couch. It was so cute. It took Michelle, Scott and I to get the girls out to the car since there was no waking them up. I found myself heaving a huge sigh of relief after they left, since it was this time last year that we found out about Emma's heart condition and subsequent surgery. I was thrilled to have Easter over and this year with out a *glitch*. Just lots of Joy at our renewed thankfulness for our Savior who died for our sins.

So I am wondering about the point of the helmets...It seems like their little legs might possibly bare the brunt of any tumble! Where or where did you find the roller skates...Let me guess...The Goodwill???:)
