Sunday, March 31st
The Easter bunny was good to the kids this year- it was all set out so nice and neat...
And, first thing in the morning, the kids descended on their baskets of goodies! (Bed head and all... this picture is really to show you what I deal with in Georgia's hair every morning!)
Cards from Nana are always super-special! :)

Lincoln announced about 2 minutes in he was just going to paint whatever color he wanted! But the quote of the morning was when daddy commented on the paint getting all over the counter, to which Georgia replied- "Daddy, sometimes an artist has to make a mess!" :)
Also- meet "Ariel", Georgia's newest best friend. Georgia and Grammie had a special birthday date on Thursday at Build-a-Bear, and Ariel was born. She's pink, if you hadn't noticed, with pink ears, feet, dress, nose, wand and shoes (not pictured). And she makes a fairy-wand twinkling sound! What more could a little girl want?! ;)

To make Easter even more special this year, it was also Georgia's birthday!! She was excited to be celebrating with Jesus, and got lots of birthday wishes with her birthday button on all day. Can't believe my sweet girl is SIX!!
