The first bubbles of spring.. and other pictures

Ok, I have updated pictures! See the March -April 08 folder to the right to view the latest pictures.


Mom got the girls bubbles in their Easter buckets she had at her house. Megan has been bugging me all week to play with them and it was nice enough this evening. (It also worked as great bribery to get her to eat her chicken. I know... bad mommy) They both did pretty good blowing the bubbles this time. Lauren usually blows too soft and Megan too hard. Like Goldilocks, this time they both had it just right.

Overall we had a nice Easter weekend. Saturday I went to a crop (scrapbooking) with April, and Laurie came into town that night on her way out to WVa for her Grandmother's funeral. While I am sad for the reason of the visit, it was nice to spend time with her. She helped Mom and the girls color Easter eggs, and when I got home from the crop helped me stuff eggs for the egg hunt and get the girl's Easter baskets ready.

2008_03_23_0114 Sunday while the girls and I attempted going to church with Mom (unfortunately Lauren lasted about 20 min. and we left early so we did not disturb the service for everyone else) Dad his eggs around the house. Since we got back to Mom and Dad's early we had to wait for Jason to bring Emily and Justin over for the egg hunt. It was not easy distracting the girls when they saw the eggs all over the place. Once Emily got there however the hunt was on! They did great, unfortunately they were too fast and poor Justin didn't stand a chance. Next year he will get his turn! They all ate WAY too much candy during the day and barely ate any dinner. Upset tummies and restless nights were had by all that night. And that was our Easter weekend.

Wednesday we celebrated Dad's (2 weeks late) and Justin's (1 week late) birthdays. Kendra and Jason found construction themed party supplies and went all out for Justin's 1st Birthday. As usual I forgot to bring my camera, but I am sure that Kendra took plenty and will share. I still need to get pictures from the Doodlebop show from her!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Wednesday night madness

Last night we went to see the Disney Princess on Ice. The show was very good, but I will never again go to an event that so widely publicizes $10 tickets for opening night. It was absolutely packed! Our seats were too high, though had I not purchased 14 at once I could have gotten better seats. Our group took up almost an entire row. Megan loved it, and Lauren did pretty well. My arms are so sore from carrying Lauren around all night (there was no way I was letting her walk in that madness!) I am so glad that my parents and Billy and Amanda came as well, they were a huge help with the girls. I would go to a show again, but not on opening night, and I would pay more for good seats. Lesson Learned.

Awesome gift idea

I ran across this cool gift idea today and wanted to share it (as well as save it so I can find it later!)

It is a customizable card set in a cute tin. I love this idea, so don't be surprised if you get a set from me sometime in the future!
