easter 2013

Happy Easter!  He is Risen!!

We woke up and got moving early this morning.  
We left the house at 7:31 for the early church service.

BUT before that we ran outside to grab the eggs the easter bunny
had left because a big storm was rolling in!

The best shot of the kids I could get.  

Love these three.

Brunch this morning after church.  Hunter looks thrilled.

After naps the sun was out and it was a beautiful afternoon!

My toothless girl.

Hunter played ball and Abby took the training
wheels off of her bike!  Fun afternoon.

Because HE lives I can face tomorrow.
Because HE lives all fear is gone.
Because I know HE holds the future.
And life is worth the living just because HE lives.

I am glad HE lives!  He is risen indeed!!

Happy Easter 2013

Trust and obey.
For there's no other way
To be happy in Jesus...
but to trust and obey.

first lost tooth

Abs lost her first tooth today.  It's been hanging there for a few days
and while she was eating dinner tonight she pushed it out with her tongue.

I was glad she did it because I wasn't about to and Bo wasn't home yet.

She handled it like a champ.  

My baby isn't such a baby anymore and while I am happy about 
that for many reasons it makes me sad for a few as well.

Today was a perfect day to dye our eggs for Easter.  The weather was chilly this morning but warmed up this afternoon so we had a little egg hunt in the back yard after naps.

We had a great weekend.  It was quiet enough but busy enough too.  

In other news....

Abby is about to lose her tooth. It is just hanging there.  Her Sunday school teacher told her he would put a string around it and tie the other end to the door knob and slam the door. That didn't go over well.

Hunter is getting 3 of his 4 two year molars.  That is fun.  Just hoping they come in soon.
I love Motrin.

I love March madness!!!!!  Happy Sunday.

field trip

How is my baby old enough to go on a field trip with her class?

On a big, yellow bus,  pack your own brown bag lunch,  and have a chaperone field trip??

Can't be possible.  A sweet mom that Abby was assigned to sent me tons of pictures during the field trip to the Sea Life Aquarium in Grapevine.  The kids had a great time!

spring break 2013

We just returned from a quick trip to see my brother, sis in law and their sweet kiddos. 
It was a BLAST!!  Their house is amazing and like a little "resort" all to itself.
Hunter spent most of the time on the tennis/basketball court playing. 

Abby spent most of her afternoons in the pool.

Cousin swim time!

Hunter LOVED my brother.  It was so precious.

Sweet David.  So happy he is in our family.  Wasn't the same until he completed us!

After two solid days of basketball, riding on bikes, swimming, eating, running around, movie watching, Wii playing, jumping on the trampoline and more running around....

Hunter was POOPED!  

And, yes, the pool is in the shape of a RAZORBACK.
Woo Pig Sooie!

Great spring break!  Thanks to the family for having us and letting us invade. 
Couldn't have been more fun!

3rd annual crawfish boil

Yesterday was our 3rd annual crawfish boil.  I was worried about the weather, but 
the rain held off and everything was perfect.  

Abby actually held the live crawfish.

Abby and Karlie

Getting the crawfish ready to boil.

Hunter wasn't too sure what to think...

30 lbs of crawfish, 6 lbs of sausage, 6 lbs of shrimp, corn, potatoes, mushrooms, 
brussel sprouts, onions and garlic.   Dinner is served!

Great afternoon with the best of friends.  Can't ask for much more than that.

I have been really lazy about taking pictures lately.  We have been really busy and have had a lot of fun the last few weeks but I just haven't been good about documenting it.  

Hunter is OBSESSED with Chuck E Cheese right now.  He talks about him every day.
I took the kids one day this week and we had the whole place to ourselves.
CEC came out TWICE while we were there and the kids
were in heaven....especially Hunter.

I adore this boy...and those cheeks.

Abby had a book parade at her school.  She was McKenna, an American Girl who
is a gymnast.  She did great and had a good time wearing a leotard to school.
She also has a really lose tooth.  THAT to me is crazy. She isn't old
enough for that, right?
