In which I post a lot of pictures and don't actually say much

Keeping with the fact that this blog is first and foremost a way to keep grandparents and aunts and uncles updated, behold: EASTER.

Blah blah blah.

We did Easter on Saturday, and thus laid out the painted eggs and carrots on Friday night. I stupidly thought we could take some cute kid shots. Becky, Becky - when will you learn that it's a lost cause?






















Ew. My arm is grossing me out.

Saturday morning we hunted up the eggs. Ouro Branco ABSOLUTELY FREAKED OUT when he woke up to find them missing.










But he calmed down when we found the chocolate egg. (Do you SEE why LP drew Easter eggs so big?)















The Easter bunny doesn't do baskets in Brazil. Strictly chocolate, baby. Layers of milk and white chocolate with homemade caramel filling. Ohmyheaven. I made that, people. Worship me.
And then Sunday morning, decked out in our Easter best, and wishing that I had a children's clothing outlet store to buy matching suits, I AGAIN attempted the impossible.















Hope can only take you so far.

The individual shots were slightly easier:














(Look! Teeth!)

(That homemade suit has been in our family for over twenty years. Be impressed.)















And of course LP hogged the camera and OB got mad and ended up in time out.

Sigh.

Happy Easter!

Tobi said...

I do worship you!! Send me your recipe post haste! Also love all the pictures of your boys not cooperating. I have very few pictures of my kiddos actually sitting together on my blog because it's almost impossible to get one good shot!!

Holy egg-tastic! I bet you could sell that for a small fortune here in the states! Your children are adorable, and there suits are darling. Happy Monday.

Reason #753 that I think you're great:

We do the bunny egg stuff on Saturday, too. I think I was married when I found out that most people just celebrate the whole thing on Sunday. We always did a bunny day and a Jesus day. Kinda like Christmas Eve v Christmas morning. :)

That egg is incredible! Can you make one at my place?

I am a huge fan of the Chocolate Egg. Really, you would think with all the advances in society, more countries would catch on to the brilliantness that is the Brazilian chocolate egg!

Mmmmmm!

Melanie J said...

Yeah, I think I'm going to have to start a giant chocolate egg tradition at my house, too. Wow.

Ok - love the pics (even the "uncooperative" ones, wish I could have seen OB fall apart about the eggs (that sounds weird - only meant that it sounds so sweet and funny at the same time and wanted to hug & comfort him to death)does my heart good to see the suit being used (you will have to pass it on to brother #1 shortly since he was the original user...)and I would like one of those MOLDS for the chocolate egg!! Love & kisses...

Debbie said...

I do worship you. That is the biggest, bestest chocolate egg I've ever seen:)

Lara said...

I am drooling over that egg. It's AWESOME!

And, every time you add one more kid to a picture your chances of getting a good one go down like 500%. It's keeping me from wanting another baby. (Just kidding...sort of.)

Ariana said...

Looks like a perfect Easter :)
Love all the smiles you got, even if the group shots look kinda crazy. lol (I love group shots like that!)

Stephanie said...

Loved all the pictures!!! :) Glad you had a good easter!

Boy Mom said...

Pictures with boys, enough to cast gloom over any holiday.

Chocolate Egg! I need you! Or at least your recipe.

SO said...

Group shots are the hardest to get!!! And I LOVE that chocolate egg...yummmmmm....

Vanessa said...

AWWw, the joys of getting them to take a decent picture. They still look cute all decked out in their Sunday best!

Jen said...

How much do I have to worship you to actually GET one of those chocolate creations???

And love the pics. You gotta love cooperative photo sessions with small children. And that suit - gotta love an impressive (see - I'm impressed) suit like that one.

Happy Easter!

Jennie said...

Cute kiddies! The instant I began putting the easter dress on my 18 month old she began screaming and yanking at the dress-needless to say she didn't wear it and I didn't get a pic of it-Good times!

The Motherboard said...

Sweet Mother of the Easter Bunny! That egg is HUGE. (and it looks yummy too!)

gigi said...

I am so impressed with the little suit! And such handsome little men you have! Happy Monday!

rad6 said...

That egg is about as impressive as it gets!!! WOW!

YUM!!!!!!!!!!!! Moving to BRazil for chocolate!

Your boys are SO cute!!!

The photos are darling, shows real life. And yes, worship over the egg winging your way. Where's the recipe? I'm a recipe hog, never make 98% of them but it's comforting--for some insane reason--to have them.

Your arm didn't gross me out at all. In fact, I thought it was dang sexy.
