Easter weekend.

Good morning, it is Monday.

Maren just left for work, but it is spring break for today and tomorrow, so the kids are still sleeping.

We had a very nice Easter weekend. We were out the door nice and early each day, so I wasn't getting up early enough to be blogging. Let me catch you up with pictures:
This is a photo of Hansen and Lillie's Easter picture. We will be sending some out soon. There are a few other poses, but I like this one the best.

This is a photo of Lillie's 7 year old picture. This girl doesn't take a bad picture!

While Hansen and Lillie were spending the night at Nana and Grandpa's house Friday night and getting ready for the Burien Easter Egg hunt, Preston stayed at a friend's house. Austin's mom does hair and she straightened Preston's hair! Most likely Preston will save for a hair straightener and the hair saga will grow on. Teenagers! Preston also scored two goals in his soccer game on Saturday. His team won and Preston had a very good game.

Easter morning at our house. The Easter Bunny didn't forget about the Slane kids! The kids were all very happy that the Easter Bunny left it's trademark powder sugar footprints leading right up to their treat baskets! After a nice and quick morning, it was off to Church. Hansen and Lillie sang in the 9:00 and the 11:00 services. Preston was an Acolyte for the 11:00 service. It was nice to have Nana, Grandpa, and Stef there as well. The next pic has Hansen and Lillie in the front row of the choir.
These last pictures are from the Breakfast at the Burien Easter egg hunt on Saturday morning. Hansen and Lillie got to do a bit of coloring, and we all had a nice breakfast. Then it was on the the egg hunt. There were hundreds of kids. They did a very nice job of egg hunts in different areas for different age groups. Hansen's egg hunt was near a wooded park that was roped off. There must have been 200 kids all leaning on the rope waiting to go! The lady was about to tell the kid a list of rules using a megaphone and her first rule was, "nobody goes until I say...go." The kids on one half of the park heard the last word "go" and there was no stopping the tidal wave of kids! It was great. No rules, just fun!

Here is a nice picture of Lillie and Avery at the breakfast.

Also a Lillie tooth update: Lillie seems to be doing much better. She now has bruising on her cheek and a few canker sores where the teeth went through her lips. The the canker sores give her more fits than the tooth trauma did. Her tooth is braced in place and we hope is growing as it should again, but it may be up to a year the doctor said before we know for sure. She is one tough cookie!

See you tomorrow.

I hate canker sores!!! Lillie still looks beautiful and I hope the tooth situation doesn't end up being a long term issue. Grow tooth grow!
