Easter Celebrations start early when you are in preschool.  The kids love coming out on the playground to find a ton of eggs, and that means the  questions come flooding in too!
- How did we miss the Easter Bunny?
- Where does he hop to during the day?

  Always a good time with his buddy Stella.

Another thing we like to do is the Easter Fun Run at Lodi Lake. The video we always make is not ready yet, but I will start working on it. This year Gino had a blast and his buddy Cain joined too.  Giada didn't have her best experience. Early into the run she was bumped by another kid and fell down hard.  After Mike and I both talking to her she finished the race. She was mad she came in dead last, and was crying to the finish but I was so proud of her for not giving up.  This may become an issue for the next time we race, but we will deal with that then!

 EGG DYING! Fun had by all, and fingers dyed for a week!

 Gino fell fast asleep in the middle of egg dying, but Giada picked up the slack and set out a note and the carrots.  


 We are so fortunate to have both sets of grandparents in town, so we get to see everyone at the holidays.  Lots of Easter egg hunts this year! Easter at the ranch was our 1st stop, Cole was old enough to hunt with the kids this year.

 Cousin Em got to meet Lorenzo!
 This hip hop bunny just jumps and sings all through Easter, the kids laugh and love it.

 Hunt#3, they are experts now. Cousin Stella was in Colorado, we missed them!

Yep, they certainly were not in Lodi!

Catch up post!

This little girl has lost 2 teeth so far. This one being the coolest since it happened at school!
Also she finally chopped her hair a good amount. There was a mysterious hair cutting that she finally fessed up to doing.  So that inspired the hair cut, and next time we will probably go even shorter.

Always fun to see our buddy Peyton. Happy Birthday P!

 School pictures are out!
 This little guy has so much hair, it has a mind of its own.
This is Peyton's new little brother Drew. The boys are 5 days apart! Just a wee bit of a size difference.

 Lorenzo gives out lots of smiles these days.

And just like that he is a month old!  Almost 2 now that I am getting around to posting.  He is sleeping a little better at night. Does one long stretch for about 4 hours....just too bad that starts at 8 and is too early for me to go to bed! Lucky for me I can go right back to sleep after all the wake ups.

A little Lorenzo lovin from Nonno! 

This is the official MacLaggan outfit.  My mom and her siblings all came home in it and we take a photo with each new grandchild that comes along and send the box to the next cousin to carry on the tradition. My cousins all get these cute photos; mine are always a mess but none the less we have them to carry on the tradition. 

 Easter is quite the celebration at school this year for Giada. One fun thing that is special to the Kindergarten class is bonnets. They all get to take one home to decorate and parade around the school.  The parade continues on a field trip to Hutchins Street Square!


Syd had a rough 2014 with lots of surgeries, weird lumps, bumps and eye problems.  So here is to hoping that we have an uneventful 2015!
