These boots were made for walking. Actually, these thrift-store finds (formerly recognizable as Thomas the Train boots) have transformed to slippers that Wilder insists on wearing on the wrong feet, tearing off sections of rubber and lovingly toting around most anywhere. They're disgusting, but he loves them. And they were part of his Easter outfit.
We opened packages from both sets of grandparents and the kids had a lovely time sugaring up. Wilder concealing a mouth full of jelly beans.
The Family Easter shot.
As I prepped for a late Easter lunch with friends, Waverley kicked off the celebration with a party tray of fruit.
Oh, my little cheeseball.
The celebrities arrived! Jason Gerhart (leading man of "Out of the Darkness" we're currently filming) and his wonderful family from Los Angeles joined us for a day of fun!
We popped in a movie after our meal and the kids settled down for a bit before we commenced the egg hunt.
Chalae and I --I mean, the EASTER BUNNY-- hid the eggs in the back yard while the daddies held the kids down inside, then we released the hounds.
"I have NO idea what we're supposed to be doing, but this is fun!"
As an experienced egg hunter, Madison had the concept down.
Balin (I know I spelled that wrong -sorry, Chalae!) was fascinated by taking Waverley's binki in and out of her mouth. Such a funny pair; only a few months apart.
Watching a video of himself with daddy.
The youngests were the easiest to photograph since they were more into flitting about than hunting for candy. Too cute.
Madison and Hudson sharing their spoils.
Ready for his close up!
Looks like trouble...
Madison was helping Waverley accessorize. Hooray for girl time!
My favorite shot of the day. Such a precious moment.
"Hm...Look what I found!"
The peak of the entertainment was blowing up the balloons, then letting the air out, watching them zip around the yard. I tried to fill the eggs with a fair amount of toys so it wasn't total sugar mania. Still, Brian ended up tossing our collection of candy the next day when a handful of toddlers got into a bag and started bouncing off the walls. Literally.
Balloons = endless fun.
A woman on a mission.
We are so thankful for the time we've gotten to spend with this great family. It's been inspiring and exciting hearing about their journey from the midwest to the west coast and what's happening in Tinseltown. Looking forward to a few more days on set with such a great actor and hopefully another get together with their family before they head back to California.
What a way to celebrate new life! Hooray for friends, new and old, near and far!
