There are moments when you're reminded of just how sweet God has been in providing people to love on your family and we had one of those moments this past Tuesday.
We woke up and noticed that something was different about our back yard... we had been egged! Someone had taken the time to cover our back yard with eggs for the kids. Having no idea of who it was was just part of the fun for us! So, when Caleb got home from school and everyone had eaten lunch, we told the kids there was a surprise and that they would need their Easter Baskets for it. This was very exciting to them because we have kept their baskets put up since they came in the mail from GiGi :)
So the baskets came down and off we went.
|There was this note at the back door step|
and even in our messy yard you could tell that there were lots of eggs!
Eggs Eggs Everywhere!!
Releasing all the babies to see the surprise. They were a little confused at first and didn't really get what was going on. But once they did, it was much more fun!
We are reminded at different points throughout the day what a good big sister Cadence is and this experience was one of those moments. She did such a good job only getting the eggs that were high so that the younger ones could get the easier eggs. I love how thoughtful she can be with her siblings.
Creed was so excited by the eggs that looked like basketballs and baseballs. He would just shriek over it. I wish we had captured the sound because the experience is much better with sound :)
|Olivia figuring out that the eggs had candy and prizes in them made it much better in her world!|
There were plenty of eggs for everyone's basket!
and then of course after the eggs were all found, they all had to be opened to see what kind of prizes we had gotten! and no, that's not a 6th Andersen kid, we had a friend who was over and got to be a part of our egg hunt :) We are blessed, but not that blessed! 5 Andersens kiddos are plenty for now!
