I can't believe we made it to three months as a family of five. When I asked a friend once upon a time what it was like to have three small children: she said we "divide and conquer." That has certainly been the name of the game here. Not an approach Porter and I want to maintain. It's not fun having to divide up the children and operate without each other side by side . But I sense we are slowly coming out of it- getting our new family rhythm down.
Here is the first of several highlights. Easter. My family came to town (well, half of them) and rented the same house in Gruene. It was so fun to watch the cousins hunt Easter eggs together like they had never seen a piece of candy before- and to see all the grand kids in Easter outfits their parents once dawned. Nice work saving our Easter bests, Mom!

Anyway, baaack to Easter:
Rhett used his Easter basket quarters to buy...the Sunday paper. Well why not? Love him.
And I love that he calls his cousin Ellie, "Ell." They truly are besties.
Emily and Porter...they think they are sooo funny.
Kate and Cheo:
My sweet nephew Campbell, who sat still for .2 nanoseconds so I could take this picture:
Could he be the cutest boy in an Easter bow tie?
Easter at church.
The cousins..in some form..
Campbell wearing my brother Tommy's smocked Easter attire from the good ol' days.
I'd like to take a moment and compare this favorite photo of mine to one that was taken at the same place, same holiday and Porter wearing the same suit- with our same Nina Lane.

While we are on that subject- let's take a walk down Easter memory lane, shall we?
2011 pre church picture:
And Easter 2012- the year I put off the blog. So here we are catching up-
Easter morn'. Someone is too 'busy' to smile for the camera- can you spot him?
Earlier that Easter week I had some girlfriends over for some egg dying in the backyard. And yes Emily, that is your bedspread. And Holley- what is Jack doing?
2012 will also go down as the year I hosted my first Easter lunch at which my whole family attended including my brother Coleman and his girlfriend Tania (insert hearts). And the year that the Robinson kids wore bunny ears EVERYWHERE- like it ain't no thang.
Rhett and Tania. I love this picture. And this swing.
That's enough of you, Easter!
