Here's a few pictures of the eggs we decorated

(I know, I know. Super bad picture taking skills. I opened the curtains to let in sunlight while we were decorating and didn't think to close them for pictures, or at least position myself differently. Someday I'm going to pay better attention to the pictures I take.)

 I did find lots of new fun ways to decorate the eggs and the boys loved it. Tie Dye. Sprinkling crayon shavings. Using rubber bands to keep white stripes.

I didn't get many of them actually searching for eggs but I did get this one of Trey doing exactly what I thought he'd do. He found about 6 eggs and then promptly sat down to eat the candy, not caring that there were more eggs to find. 

For some annoying reason I can't get my pictures to turn anymore. I blame the photo program on our new laptop. But I had to include one of Brock. 

My handsome boys in their Easter best

 Can you tell he had a mouth full of Easter candy? I didn't until now. (I would've made him spit it out. :)

I can't believe this big group of boys is my family! On Saturday we went out to run a few errands and I could not believe how big of a family we are. I seriously felt like we looked like a zoo. :) 
Good thing they're all so good looking.
Don't you just love the matching ties I found for them? I do!!

So you don't know me but I like to stalk your blog sometimes... I knew Seth when we were younger.
I just have to comment - your boys ALL wearing white shirts and ties says so much about YOU, their mother. I don't doubt that they'll all grow up to be wonderful men...
I just had my first child, a son, 7 weeks ago. I cried when I found out he was a boy. (My husband comes from a family of boys - 5 brothers, 6 uncles, 3 nephews - 1 sis, 1 aunt, 1 niece - I knew my odds weren't good for a girl!)
However, the world needs righteous mothers to raise righteous men... I"m learning that more and more. I say it takes a lot of trust our Heavenly Father has for you to ask you to raise 5. What a blessing!! So, bring on the boys, Heavenly Father, I'll raise them all if that's what you'll trust me with :)
Thank you for your example.

That was such a nice comment from Charity! But I agree completely! I LOVED what she said. It's true Dez, you are the perfect Mom for all these boys and they will be amazing because of you!

They seriously looooook soooooo cute it makes my heart melt!!! I can't believe how handsome they all are and how big they are getting! I'm pretty sure I've looked at these pics of them like 15 times just so I could see how cute they all are!
