The house decked out for the day...

|The candy table|
Four of the children decked out for Easter
|Cathy, Dominic, Anna, Theresa before Easter Vigil...|
The pictures we took of the little boys were lost due to a corrupted memory card in
my camera, unfortunately... :( So, stay tuned for a special Easter suit photo shoot.
What Everyone Was Doing
|Philip Lawrence serenaded us...|
|There was a lot of talking and eating and visiting and eating... and eating.|
L-R: Wynn and Jamie Shedenhelm, Dominic with James Broadman behind him, & Cathy
It was a beautiful day!
|Here's the whole gang, minus me and Dan. L-R, B-F: James Broadman, Taner Shedenhelm,|
Dominic, Philip Lawrence, Wynn next to his sisters, Jamie and Christi Shedenhelm,
next to Cathy, then Gabe, William, Anna, and Theresa in front.
|The windblown tables after dinner was cleared and everyone|
had deserted them to go play...
|Games played: some strange assimilation of soccer, football, and swinging on|
the tree swing + plus some good old fashioned goofing around...
|There's just something about William that makes people want to pick him up and|
throw him around... (Here Gabe's being toted around by Wynn)
|Anna and Christi, probably talking about cats. You can't tell by the pictures, but|
the kitties were underfoot everywhere all day long!
And then the Campfire
|Looking down on the campfire...|
|Sitting around the campfire.|
Scoot back away from them, Philip. The zombie strain comes out after they've
had too much sugar...
|Yeah... I don't know them, either, Jaimie...|
|Dominic re-enacting saving Gabriel. (His foot had been caught in the crook of the tree...)|
Isn't he a good brother? Sorta.
|And, last of all, the symbolic offering of the Easter Peep on the Easter campfire...|
The deal was that when the peep was gone, the kids all had to head back to Omaha.
|It was sad to contemplate the end of the day. Yes, indeed.|
(That. And the waste of a perfectly good peep.)
