Thunder! Boomer! Up! Sooner!

This is what I could hear from the living room last night:
" Aw - come on!"
"NO! Stop him!"
Wiser (who I think still carries scars from abusive high school athletes picking on band kids - big meanie bullies) has totally gotten into the hometown NBA team this year. It's been really fun to watch him :) And the team. They have made the whole city so proud.

What a fun day to be a sports fan in Oklahoma. We got to see 3 Sooners taken in the top 4 spots in the NFL draft (Big 12 4-4)! And the Thunder beat the Lakers in the very first NBA playoff game ever played in Oklahoma City. All on the anniversary of the landrun. Seems fitting.

Here's some more reading & a video on the game last night: Frenzied fans play big part in Thunder playoff win

2010 Eggstravaganza

I haven't blogged in about 3 months and my mother is having major withdrawals so this is going to be lengthy...

Marsh (formerly known as Sharla, thanks to Hazel) had movers at her house on Thursday and was unpacked and ready for the annual Egg Hunt/Eggstravaganza/Brawl by the Saturday morning before Easter. A superhuman feat. I think it was the best turnout yet; everyone brought lots of prize (and tricky) eggs and fancy decorated baskets. I didn't get a picture of the human sized basket that Marsh's goddaughter wore, but she obviously was the basket decor winner. So here we go...

The festivities began at noon, with snacks and nourishments to make sure everyone was properly fueled and strategized for the Hunt.

Charlie Cheeks

Babies everywhere...

Hayden with SFA

Ruby Kaye!

A winning basket, maybe for most inappropriate?

Mommy and Hayden. She'll be in the mix next year!

The little ones hunt first:

The race is on.

Hazel would make her dad proud.

Charlie is not into girls yet :(

Easter girls

Then, the babes are sent safely inside and the Real Hunt begins...

Apparently you have to play princesses while you watch princesses.

Princess times.

The Hiding Hostess.

Nice form, Wiser.

There I am.

Marsh bit it but recovered before she lost her eggs.

Booby trapped!

Rumble for the last egg

Wiser's Little Helpers

Trophy time!

You can judge the success of the hunt by how much dirt you wear at the end of the day.

Relaxing after a hard day's hunt.

All in all, another super successful hunt! Thanks, Marsh, we can't wait until next year!
