Easter 2014

We had a good, relaxing Easter this year! The Easter bunny has decided that he will bring a new spring outfit and books to our kids! I love this idea! (Not to say a few small $1 toys and a small thing of candy won't find there way in the baskets)

Sam got books on Bible stories and a potty book! Also, all 3 American Tails movies! (Which mom is way more excited about!)

Vanessa got some cute SuzyZoo books and the Muppets in Space movie!

They both got really cool track books, they have little pull back cars (Vanessa's is a ladybug) and you put the cars on the track in the book and they drive around :)

Eating colored scrambled eggs!

Sam got 2 balls. He had Aaron open them and then he put them away!

Vanessa picked up on the gift idea and pulled everything out and looked at it. 3 days later and I don't think Sam has looked in all of his yet!

Sam didn't want shoes on for church!

Getting pictures of these two is a challenge, getting nice pictures of these two is impossible! 

This is probably the cutest one, even though Vanessa isn't looking at the camera.

And then it just got sad! (We have 1 o'clock church!)

After church we came home and hurried and got ready. We were going to go to my mom's. But as we were getting ready to walk out the door they showed up. A little after they left, Aaron's parents showed up. It was nice not to have to drag the kids around and have them all stop by here. We sure love the holidays around here with kids!!! And they just get better and better!!! :)

March Photos

March was a super fun month and I can't believe it's over! Here is our month in pictures...no order :)

Aunt Cathy came to visit from Nova Scotia, Canada!

Mom, Cathy and I went to Vegas!

Did a coupon/sale only shopping trip and save $100!!!

Found out that Vanessa has asthma and started treatments...she's doing great!

Sam tried to convince us he needed a bottle again....this only worked for 2 days and then I put my foot down!

I tore out the bushes in the front!

I found Vanilla Coke chap-stick in Vegas!!!

Cathy brought me Canadian Corn Pops! (They were gone before she went home!)

We spent a lot of time hanging out on the couch!

Even with 3 friends!

I got to do some crafting!! (This is for my new niece who I can't wait to meet!)

We had cupcakes for Nana's birthday. (Jules says they are Pupcakes and Sam calls them muffins...it was a very heated conversation!)

We had more cupcakes for St. Patricks Day

We are getting so big and beautiful!

We learned how to use a fork...before our brother ;)

We made new friends who also come Monday-Thursday...now there's 7!

We are super happy in the mornings!

We love to singing...especially the wheels on the bus and if you're happy and you know it

It's hard to tell, but Sam is lying in my lap!

And my lap never has enough room for everyone!

We had enough hair for a Mohawk! 

Looking older and older :(

We spent an afternoon outside with out friends!

And when it was time to come in, they knocked on the door calling for the dog to open it! :D

We played the piano!

We got stuck in our pillow case!

I dyed my hair purple!

We shared M&M's

We sang at the piano

We slept in the car a lot!

First time down a slide!

First time in a swing!

We love time out!

We love this hat that was left at our house and no one claimed!

We still love eating!

And playing!

The highlight of the month...meeting Daniel Tiger!

Sam still talks about meeting him and giving him a high five! (And I love that we know his memory is growing longer!)

He got a mask and a free book and a "kitten" to take home!

So did she!

Getting tired, but loving the new freedom of walking in a crowded place!

Sam got to throw 3, and actually made the last one!


He wasn't sure about the King Friday puppet. But the man was great and actually sounded like King Friday!

We built LOTS of tracks!

And we are just so stinking cute!!!
