The things kids say!

We have had a great weekend here at the Cox household. I hated the cold weather Saturday, but we made the best of it! First on our agenda was the egg hunt at church. The kids were so excited and even though it was held inside, it was still exciting for them. We arrived a little late, which is not surprising, but the fun was just getting started. I sent the kids on their way and went to sit down and catch my breath. I get so wound up trying to get everyone ready that once I get somewhere, I am exhausted. There is something about going to church though. We are always running behind and the kids are not cooperative at all when getting ready. I guess you could say it's the devil! was lots of fun!
The kids found eggs, ate cotton candy and other goodies, and played on the bounce house.
Gavin even...
Won the Prize Egg!
I wish I could have caught a picture of his face when he came into the room to show me his prize egg. He was so proud and I was so happy for him. After the egg hunt we took the kids to eat and then to see a movie. It was between Hop and Rio. Easy decision since Rio was sold out and plus we were in the whole "Bunny" theme today so Hop was a good movie to see. I give it a thumbs up. We all enjoyed it! After we left the movies, we made a trip to Walmart and the kids hopped all the way through the store. Walmart with two kids is bad enough, but when they are bunnies, it's even worse!

Boy, I love this little guy!
My kids say some of the funniest things. On our way home from the movies the kids were on a role. Richard and I were talking about something that happened while we were dating and Gavin responded with "when I was dead?". Rich said, "No, you weren't born yet." Gavin said, "Then I was dead!" The next thing out of Sadie's mouth was "Daddy, can you turn down the heat because I am smokin' hot and feel like I have water in my arm pits." Richard and I were busting! I thought the kids might fall asleep on the way home, but they didn't. The promised game of Monopoly looked like it was a must!

Sunday morning we went to church and Gavin got my attention again. After the announcements, the pastor came up front and said "It's good to have everyone in God's house this morning." Gavin looked at me and said "It's not God's house." I said, "Yes, it is GOd's house." Gavin (not whispering at ALL) said "No! If it was God's house, he would be here!"

After church, we spent the day out in the sunshine! I hate that the weekend is over, but it was great while it lasted and I am even closer to spring break!
