The Egg Hunters



Our church's annual Easter Egg hunt was today, and even though I was at the "Excitement filled event known as the International Home Furnishings Market", I forced myself to sneak away for a few hours. See, today was Trots first ever Easter Egg hunt, and there was no way I was gonna miss it if I could help it.

He seemed to enjoy himself, though he was only interested in holding 1 egg in each hand at a time: the concept of putting them in the basket as he went is not something he's quite grasped yet. They do the hunt in stages by age, so I got to see Rakes and Ciera do theirs as well.

I know an Easter Egg hunt does not seem like a big deal to most people: they just grow up so fast now I don't want to miss anything. Won't be too long and Ciera will have outgrown this kind of thing. Rakes will probably want to be doing it when he's 20: he had a blast. Though he wanted to stop picking them up to eat the candy before it was over. Note to self: teach Rakes about the killer instinct.

Ciera was mad she did not get more that 12: she has got the killer instinct down pat. All the better for when them young punks come calling. Between my gun and her attitude, maybe I can keep 'em at bay.

Felt kind of good sneaking away to see my kids today: just my way of giving the man the middle finger whenever I can. Baseball tomorrow, Cards vs. Mets, then finally, thankfully, mercifully, the REAL season starts in KC on Monday.

Schilling vs. Meche.

Thank God.

Ted D said...

Kaylee, do I have this figured right: you are the oldest of 4 sisters and a brother?

Wow: you have a HUGE family. No wonder you like to talk: I would to with all those siblings!

Kaylee said...

YES am the oldest..... of 4 sisters and a brother! this gives me a relief from them.........otherwise I would be fighting with them all day long and driving my parents crazy.although,they probably go crazy anyway with 6 kids!

Kaylee said...

BTW Where have TEX and Scott been tonight? Is it still raining on there side of the country!

Tex said...

I was helping my friend move today ALL DAY Babysitting service. Home now but need to clean house and do some laundry as I have to get ready for business trip this week.
im alittle upset i dont get to see beckett or dicek pitch

Kaylee said...

Okay TEX........we get worried when you dont check in:)I wont see Dice K pitch either.Freakin school is in the way of that one and wake on friday.MIGHT HAVE TO TIVO it.BUT I AM GLAD BECKETTS IS A NIGHT GAME

Ted D said...

Texas, was getting worried about you: btw, did you see the new link on my links section? Tree Newts Perch: guess who's started a blog!

This is too much. Me and my idiotic comments and Matty and his deep thoughts: You all are gonna get the full brother spectrum, thats for sure.

Kaylee, Scotty's church is doing a drive through Easter story: Scott plays Resurrection Jesus if you can believe that! Sounds cool though, however he will not be able to comment until late.

Kaylee said...

Oh okay at least he has a good reason to not be here tonight!

Ted D said...

Tex and Scotty: if you read this, take note of the new blog I've linked up: Tree Newts Perch.

Scotty, the fun has just begun! Canola Oil has a blog: think of the good times ahead! Although his writing will make mine seem simple minded, the thought of busting his marbles sort of cancels that out.

Welcome to blogging little brother: you'll be great at it.

Tex said...

Tree Newt blogging??!!! I think Ive created Monsters!!! :)

Carol said...

They're all cute kids with nice names! And I love that Easter basket - Truly unique!

Kaylee said...

I may need to go hide for a while before this is over:)

scott h said...

Ok , I can tell when Im away things get a little slow.Ted first off, IF I am correct and I usually am YOU are the Man that you are giving the finger too. Self employed and listed as head of the other two snakeoil salesman you then become the man.You just birded yourself!!! Oh me pine sap has his own blog this should be intresting!

scott h said...

One more question. Does my ticket include airfare, hotel, bond money?

Kaylee said...

There you are Scott I was looking for you earlier thank god for the baseball season or else I would go nuts!

Ted D said...

Bub, during market I am forced to be here with all the suits: therefore, for this stretch only, I am NOT the man: And no, it does not include airfare or bond money.

However, IF you come, I'll buy your tickets and Mattie might buy you a plate of Boogs BarBQ. Plus, according to Tex, she can talk us out of any potential trouble with the fuzz in Baltimore.

Tex, Matt and I were just saying that on Sunday in Bmore, we are going to have to get to the park at about 8 am just so we can all hang out before the game. We are driving up Sat so will probably get to the park around 4 or 5.

Carol, thanks: I'm sorta partial to them myself: and about the Easter basket: pretty much EVERYTHING around my house is baseball related, at least as much as Angie will allow!

Mattie said...

Bub, you beat me to the comment about Ted really giving himelf the bird. I'm a day late and a dollar short, as usual. Actually, he was kind of giving me and Keith the finger, because we had to stay and cover for him while he was gone. Plus, the "I'll only be gone an hour" turned into "I might be back before we close." Being the man has it's priviledges.

Ted D said...

Once again I get ridiculed for wanting to see a special moment in my liitle angels lives.

Plus Mattie, I have delevoped permanent back damage from carrying you 2 boys.

Kaylee said...

Thank pod that I asked.........and was granted a day/night off tomorrow so I can see opening day:)

scott h said...

All righty now, I don't have enough material to jabber on your blog and Newts. We are going to have to work up a system as to who gets to blog on which days. Just found out I have to reinact my risen Jesus role on sunday and then jump back on guitar for the last song which I lead. yes robe head thingy , and beard. I think I will silp on sunglasses and do zztop.

scott h said...

Thank pod that I asked.........and Kaylee what kind of" pod " do you serve?

Kaylee said...

Scott:I cant imagine you in that "risen jesus role" but good luck with it.

Kaylee said...

Scott:None that was my way of not saying "god's" name here......I hate working!

Ted D said...

Where you been Grandad? I guess you needed a nap after your late night last night.

Kaylee said...

NOW TED I LIKE THAT PICTURE ALOT BETTER THAN THE BECKETT one......man I am supposed to be working not goofing around.

::Goes quietly back to work and pretends that was what I was doing all along::

KAYLEE said...

AND i cant wait to see JOSH BECKET pitch this season Just so he can prove you wrong and me right or is the other way around?!?!?!?

scott h said...

come on now we need some kind of system, certain hours we are on your blog than over to newts. WEll are you guys free now.

KAYLEE said...

YOU DONT NEED CERTAIN HOURS SCOTT!You need to think more to come up with stuff to say that is what you need!

Tex said...

Less than 24 hours before the season embarks....I was flipping channels last night and "The Rookie" was on....right about the time Morris finds out he and Brooks gets called up to The Show.

I was ALL Smiles....cos Morris pitches at The Ballpark in Arlington....I will be there this Friday!!!!

Scott...Ill be back Memorial weekend if you and your crew decide to catch a red sox series with the rangers.

i am going to have to call Dell...work computer is sucking...my pc is OLDER than me...

I hate that I am missing Easter at home with my family....but...since they wont come to Arlington :)

ya know...a girl loves her diamonds

KAYLEE said...

I could use an anger management class right about now I am home not more than 5 minutes and my family is already driving me insane.

scott h said...

Hey Tex I thought about that memorial weekend, what days are the games. I could look but its easier to ask the teacher.

scott h said...

Kaylee, ask not what your family can do for you but what you can do for your family! ( its history Im sure you have heard it)

scott h said...

Getting ready to go play a little basketball , so I guess I will talk with my peeps later.

KAYLEE said...

scott,You play basketball? I hope you are just talking with your son!I have heard that many times they just make me so mad especially my sisters they just are......well lets say annoying:/

Ted D said...

Hey everyone: sorry, my brother convinced me to download Internet Explorer 7 and now I can't upload pictures on the blog.

So, if this keeps up and going back to vs. 6.

Yeah Bub, we are DONE. Thank the Lord.

scott h said...

Kaylee , no not with my son. For real , real shoes, real ball ,real inside gym ,real goals, we even keep score. and yes I shoot and shoot and shoot some more.

Ted D said...

Scotty, your new nickname?

Chucker.

Just like George Costanza.

KAYLEE said...

//Kaylee , no not with my son. For real , real shoes, real ball ,real inside gym ,real goals, we even keep score. and yes I shoot and shoot and shoot some more. //.

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMM UMMMMMMM Okay I can just envision that and what position do you play:)

KAYLEE said...

NOW SCOTT:You go play some basketball if,that is what you call it and I will stay here and watch the mets game:)

scott h said...

Mets hmmm, they do have the most potent 3 ,4,5. Nah I will just watch sportscenter.

KAYLEE said...

SCOTT:Truly the only reason that I watch is because of the guy out in right field and I aint talking about LASTINGS MILLEDGE the rookie I am talking about the veteran MR GREEN!

Ted D said...

You mean in the NL right Bub?

'Cause everyone knows that Papi, Manny, Drew is THE most potent 3,4,5.

I thought you were gonna go exercise.

Tex said...

Memorial weekend games
Fri-25th, Sat-26th, & Sun=27th

ill be there for all games. if you are thinking of going...you should buy tickets early from rangers. get bleacher seats if you dont want to spend lots of monies...get section 54..closet to Red Sox bullpen..ill be across from the bullpen in bullpen seats.

Ted D said...

Tex, you sure you are ready for Scotty without Matt and I acting like a buffer zone?

Scott, same question to you!

Tex said...

Scotty's gonna have family with him right???? they'll keep him in line. and I can behave when i have to.
Ya would be quite surprised by my restraint

Ted D said...

I'm sure he'd at least bring Garrison, and maybe Sonya and Kaylee. I can't see the older two, who are divas of the highest order, going to a ball game.

And if he does, you have to tell me if these hats he bought are regulation caps Tex. That's your mission.

KAYLEE said...

You cant even spell SCOTT's daughter's name right TED????? AINt SHE part of your family????? even I can spell it cmon!!!!!!!

Ted D said...

Kaylee, I'm so used to you now I forgot: His Kaleigh is spelled that way, but the one I meant to type was Karianne, his little girl.

And if you want to start criticizing spelling missy, well just bring it on!

KAYLEE said...

//And if you want to start criticizing spelling missy, well just bring it on! //

I'll bring it on if I can handle scott I can handle you SIR!!!!!!!!!!!

Ted D said...

"You can't handle the truth"!

Kaylee, taking on me AND Scotty may be a little much: just pick your battles.

You must be happy: the Mets are up 5-0 in the 5th.

KAYLEE said...

Okay I am this mets game now!!!!!!
I could watch glavine pitch all day long:) as for you and scotty I will have no problem taking on both of you BRING ON MEN!!!!!

KAYLEE said...

of courrse I MEEANT BRING IT ON MEN!

Ted D said...

"OK I am this Mets game"?

Your honor, I rest my case.

KAYLEE said...

It should of said"okay I am loving this mets game" I challenge you and then you pick up every mistake and thats exactly what i wanted!!!!I will handle you later sir.

KAYLEE said...
