All of that being said - we did do some celebrating with Easter baskets... The weekend was CRAZY busy - starting on Friday with grilling and playing in the pool at my Dad's, then Saturday we celebrated John's mother's birthday and had some Easter baskets given to us by the grandparents, then Sunday we tried to regroup and catch up... so here are some photos of the fun that we managed to fit into our weekend.
James playing with the basket MawMaw & PawPaw gave him... My Dad & Lynne got them each a little something too... and Aunt Cathi got them each an outfit. Fun stuff!
James can't wait!
Get down here people... it's time to open this bad boy!
Getting a little help from Missy
Opening James' basket - all that stuff and the kid is STILL playing with the ribbon. Seriously - the ribbon, his pool float, and his one A/V cord that Daddy gave him are his favorite items. (I'll take a picture of the treasured items when he's done playing today)

James enjoyed the book so much he decided to read it again on his own.
Tyler got a touch and feel book about baby animals

James enjoyed removing all the Easter grass from his basket.
Tyler got the 'Twas the Night Before Easter Veggie Tales movie.
I got this set of books at our local grocery store - but they looked so cute - I knew we had to have them.
