we had a really good turtle ice cream pie for his dessert (and yes, the kids had their cupcakes instead - see previous post). all he wanted was a wii and so he had a very wii birthday. yes, i sat in line for about 2 hours one weekend morning so we could get him one. hilarious. the really crazy part is that i was "late" to wait in line. other people had been there since midnight. i felt "lucky" since i'd only really been looking for about 6 weeks and actually came home with one. some people had been trying for months and months. insane! he can't wait to have people over and to play with all his new fun stuff. see, you're only as old as you feel and when video games are your gift you are very young at heart! =) we love you honey! happy birthday!
mia came out of her room and stopped at the top of the stairs. "mom, there's an easter bunny on my fireplace. i want it!" she was promptly told that she had to wait for asher to walk up to which her response was "what??"" she handled it well though and the kids had fun looking at all the fun things the easter bunny brought them.
ring pops in the shape of bunnies were a BIG hit!
gotta have fun bunny ears!
we headed to church and then after naps went over to grandma and grandpa's for a little more celebrating. we are so blessed to have family so close and to get to see them so often. mia always has such fun with her cousin liam. the two of them had a blast decorating bunny cupcakes. surprisingly enough, most of the decorations acutally ended up on the cupcakes too! we were all very impressed. the trick was also to get them to wait until after dinner to eat them. thankfully we can still work a little of the "out of sight, out of mind" magic (especially when they're together and there are oodles of uncles to play with!

hope you all had a wonderful easter celebrating the love and hope we can all find in Jesus! happy easter!
