This is Sophia, my niece, who will be turning two years old next month. She is the youngest cousin, but she can hold her own with the bigger kids. She is very cute and loves to wear the dresses. All of her cousins take care of her.
Any time we all get together, Noah (4) and Nolan (4), instantly run off and start wreaking havoc. They have a great time together. We have decided that they are like two puppies. Always tackling each other and rolling around the floor. They are hilarious to watch.
Once the kids were in the back bedroom playing around, it did give us small moments to hang out and talk to people. We are so glad our remodel is done, because it allows us to have people over and enjoy our home. And hey, we had one extra bathroom that was complete with a toilet and a shower.

Like always, everyone seems to congregate around the kitchen. We had great food. It is funny how the kids could care less what we eat all day long, but the parents plan it, prepare it, fuss over it, and eat it.
Once we had all of the eggs hidden, we lined the kids up in the hall and made them wait while we explained the rules. This year, we had six kids, so we got six different colors. Each child was a different color so they would all gets eggs in the end. This way, Sophia (2), would get to find eggs even if she takes a little more time and walks a little slower. All of the kids loved this and ended up helping each other out. It was fun to watch. We did give Sophia a head start.
This is after they had found all the eggs and candy. I think most of them were going into a candy coma. Their cousin Amanda also came to help them out towards the end.
Rebecca's cousin, Amanda, came. All the kids look up to her since she is the oldest of the cousins. They think she is great.
Noah, looking around for more eggs. He is the master at finding the eggs. We would have normally hidden the eggs outside, but living in thenorthwest means being flexible...and so we were. We really enjoyed the day with our friends and family.
