Easter 2015

Easter morning started with the Easter baskets.

Hailey saw the minnie stuff and completely ignored the rest of her basket. :oP

After baskets we got dressed and headed to grandma and papa's for breakfast and an Easter egg hunt.

The kiddos had a blast finding eggs.

And if the other cousins weren't careful, Hailey would snatch an egg from their basket. :oP

Colson couldn't wait to have a piece of candy.
Or two... :oP

We attempted to get a pic of all the cousins together...it's starting to get a bit hard.

We ended the morning with a bit of kite flying. The weather was absolutely perfect for it! The kiddos had a blast!

We ended the day by going to my grandparents house and the kiddos got to do another egg hunt.

We also snapped a family picture.

We really lucked out with the weather. We still seem to kind of be stuck in cooler weather...spring hasn't really shown up and stayed yet...everything is still brown...but it was super nice out on Easter so it was nice to finally not have to wear a coat!

Coloring Eggs

Coloring eggs is starting to get a bit easy because the two oldest kiddos follow directions a little bit better. Although, those pesky egg dippers still give us trouble so I think next year I am going to have to splurge and get the 'good' ones and not use the flimsy wire ones that come with the kits.

But either way, the kiddos had fun and mad some pretty awesome eggs. :o)

Hailey didn't actually color any eggs but she sat and watched Hannah and Colson and played with a fake egg. Hopefully next year she can participate without making a super huge mess. :oP



Boy, it's been awhile...

But life has been happening, and we have been keeping busy which is a good thing. :o)

However, I have been finding time to craft. 

I started doing a lot of string art. I found it really relaxing. 

Here are a few pics of some things I have made. I have these and others listed on etsy so go check them out (plum ruffle)!! :o)

I have also been trying to use up some yarn so I made these--also listed on etsy.

And then I painted this cute family sign that I plan on hanging in our mudroom. I am pretty much in love with it and once I get it hung I will be sure to post a picture of the mudroom 'collage'. 

So yeah, lots of fun stuff. :oP 

I'll do a life update here very soon! :o)


Colson's 4 Year and Hailey's 18 Month Stats

Colson is still...small, at a whopping 30 lbs and 38 inches. But we all knew that, didn't we!? :oP 

He gained a pound and a half since last year and grew 3 inches so he is making progress...someone just has to be the smallest.

Otherwise everything looks good. They said he's healthy!

Hailey came in at 21.14lbs and 30 and a half inches. She didn't gain any weight since her 15 month appointment but grew an inch and a half.

Hailey dropped a bit in percentiles but they're not worried. They said she's just probably following in her brother's footsteps. :oP

So Hannah is going to be super tall and then the other two are gonna be shorties. Haha!

Hailey is really starting to say more words and play with toys--her newest words being lovie, pretty, Minnie and Olaf. :oP She is obsessed with anything Minnie Mouse and Olaf related these days! She is also pretty fond of Goodnight Moon. She loves to find the little mouse. 

She is becoming more of a little peson rather than a baby and I don't like it. :o( If I could keep her at this a act age forever I think I would because she is just so fun!


Our Serious Dipper

Hailey saw us dipping our French fries in ketchup so she wanted to as well. :o)

Ketchup in one hand. French fry in the other.

She actually did rather well and didn't make as big of a mess as I thought she would.
