Wordful Wednesday ~ Elayna in EasterLand

I love this picture so much, there really are no words.
Elayna is my youngest, and she is nine years old.
I don't know how many more Easter egg hunts there will be, before she decides she's too old to hunt eggs.
She already stopped believing in the Easter Bunny (Tooth Fairy, Santa, etc...).
So I tried to capture some special moments this year.
This was my favorite by far.
She had us rolling this weekend....she told us that she saw a sticker on a car that said "Save the hmm-hmms". I said "What on earth are you talking about?" And she finally whispered "ta-tas". I told her that ta-tas isn't really a bad word, however if it had said Save the TITS, for example, that would've been bad, and she cracked up. Then John, Shelbie and I started discussing different names for breasts, and finally ELAYNA yelled out "Save the Coconuts!" I have no idea where she heard that but it was HI-larious!
Lastly, those of you who offered to guest post: send them in! I'm supposed to be on vacation here! ;o)

love the picture!

it's scary how quickly they grow up and leave all that behind them. sometimes I think the youngest of the kids grow out of it all earlier. all we can do is make the best of it for as long as we can, right?

My youngest will be seven in a few weeks. I'm beginning to realize that there will not be many more "visits" on the holidays. I'm treasuring every last one there is!

"Save the *coconuts*?!?!?" That's fantastic!!

That's a great picture of Elayna Cyndy. I love it. My two gave up hunting this year and the dying of eggs too. My sister dyed a few on Sunday and Jessie joined in so maybe next year we'll get to do them anyway. It just felt so weird not to have those two traditions this year.

My sisters and I were all 7 years apart, so once one kid was done with the tradition, we had a little one that was all excited - that made it so that here I am in my 40's and I still love to do all of the kid stuff :)

That is a beautiful picture! My kids have never believed in the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, or even Santa Claus. So sad.
