Neighborhood Egg Hunt

Our neighborhood hosted an Easter Egg Hunt this year so we invited our cousins to join the fun...
There were separate areas for little kids and big kids to hunt.  Watts was ready to go...
Cille was young enough to hunt with the little kids but fast enough to hunt with the big kids...





Tripp just wanted to see what was inside all those eggs...

Corinne was there but not really in the mood to hunt eggs...
Neither was Zachariah...

Cille and sweet Caroline showing off their loot...
The eggs were filled with lots of stickers...

It was a beautiful day for the hunt so Daddy set up the bouncer in the back yard and we brought the party home with us...

Good times with friends and family!

Cille's Ark Show

Cille's class worked long and hard the month of March to prepare for their annual preschool art show.  Her class chose a special project and painted 15 different scenes from the Bible.  Cille was assigned Noah's ark and she did a fabulous job of creating a beautiful painting...
I love how she used her handprints to make the rainbow.  What a touching example of how God reaches out for us with His promises!

Stella's BirthDAY

Cille just couldn't believe that it was already Stella's birthday AGAIN! 
We had to start Stella's real birthDAY off in the proper Pourciau fashion, with a birthday breakfast in bed...
We decided to let sleeping babies lie so Watts and Corinne were not invited to the birthday breakfast this year...
Stella's birthday was on a school day so I took cupcakes for her class and a stuffed animal surprise to her at lunch.  After school we met Mawmaw and Pawpaw for dinner at Outback since the birthday girl had requested steak.  It was a rainy night, so she got her gift from Mom and Dad inside after we got home from the restaurant...
A big girl bike!
Her old bike was too small for her and she is riding on two wheels now so it was time for some shifters...

She was very excited to have a bike just like Mom and Dad's.  Actually, I can pretty comfortably ride Stella's bike so I'm not sure if this isn't a better size frame for me...
She couldn't wait to take it out for a spin but she had to wait for sunny skies and dry concrete!
Happy birthday, Stella!  We love you!

Stella's Birthday Pictures

Last year we scheduled a photo session on Cille and Watts's actual birthdays, and I appreciated capturing them on their special day, so this year we are scheduling a birthday photo shoot for all the kids.  Stella was up first.  Everyone went along so that we could get a few group shots and the nice folks at JC Penney put them into this cheesy collage for us.  Enjoy their witty comments...
Stella also requested a shot with each one of her siblings...






Poor Corinne.  Also, Watts doesn't look prepared for this one...
Who is Cille looking at?  Corinne still does not want to be there...
This one would have been cute until the photographer said to touch her nose.  Why?  Just, why?
Almost there...
About as good as it's gonna get...
This one works, too...




No boys allowed!

Sassy seven year old!
But she's still a sweetie...
