Picked with Love

My sweeties with the beautiful flowers.
Parker had a really cute spring outfit on with a cute hat but had a blow out at lunch. Thankfully I had wipes and a sleeper today! Yesterday when he had a blow out the wipes were not in Mimi's van, it was a mess.
Daddy and Baylor made an iphone with the tortilla dough.
We love Daddy!
Ethan was reaching for a chip.
Baylor loves Mr. Ethan!
Mr. Ethan sat in a high chair today like a big boy. We used Tom's jacket to prop him up in the back.
Coop and his big bunny. It was a tough decision.
Baylor picked a soft green bunny. He is so sweet.
What a lovely day it was here with sunny skies and warmer temperatures. The boys have loved spending time outside! Today we met Jenny and Ethan at Hobby Lobby. Mimi bought the boys and Ethan a stuffed bunny for Easter. They were so excited! After shopping we met Tom at Don Pablos for lunch. How fun to be able to eat lunch with Daddy during the day and baby Ethan. After lunch we went to a few more shops. Ethan and Parker were such great little shoppers today. I can't wait for them to play with each other! This evening we spent more time playing outside. Baylor and Cooper picked me a big bouquet of daffodils. They were so proud and could not wait to give them to me. They truly did pick them with LOVE!

Easter Treats

What a cute chick!
So funny.
Sprinkle master!
He was quite proud.
He had some green hands.
The eggs turned out great.
Cooking brothers.
Having fun!

Today the boys and I were very busy at home making Easter treats. We made cupcakes with bunny sprinkles, dyed eggs, and then make some crafts. They worked so hard and had a great time. After getting all of our special treats together we made some special deliveries. We took cupcakes, eggs, and crafts to Mama and Papa, Miss Rita, and the Mecwan family. The boys were so excited to bring the surprises to special people we love. It was a great way for the boys to share with others and they had lots of fun!

Palm Sunday

In Christ Alone

In Christ Alone my hope is found

He is my light, my strength, my song

This Cornerstone, this solid ground

Firm through the fiercest drought and storm

What heights of love, what depths of peace

When fears are stilled, when strivings cease

My Comforter, my All in All

Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh

Fullness of God in helpless babe

This gift of love and righteousness

Scorned by the ones He came to save

'Till on that cross as Jesus died

The wrath of God was satisfied

For every sin on Him was laid

Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay

Light of the world by darkness slain

Then bursting forth in glorious Day

Up from the grave He rose again

And as He stands in victory

Sin's curse has lost it's grip on me

For I am His and He is mine

Brought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death

This is the power of Christ in me

From life's first cry to final breath

Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell, no scheme of man

Can ever pluck me from His hand

'Till He returns or calls me home

Here in the power of Christ I'll stand

Celtic Woman

Mom and I had a fun night that was part of her birthday present. We went to the Rathskeller for dinner and had a great meal. It was so packed and there was lots of excitement at the restaurant. After dinner we went to see Celtic Woman. It was a great show and we had a wonderful time. I really think I need to get a violin and dance like the girl as part of my workout regimen. I would surely get in great shape. The songs were pretty and I enjoyed the night with mom.

Baylor's Preschool Easter Party

A great yummy snack.
Happy after the hunt.
Baylor and Rachel.
On your mark get set go!
Crafting away.
Hard at work.
Katie C. called me and wanted to watch the boys because she missed them. It was a special treat for Mimi and I to go shopping with just Parker. The bunny stopped to say HI to Parker.
A little cuteness to brighten any day!
Today was Baylor's last preschool party. I have loved being his room mom at preschool for the past three years and planning all his school parties. I love his teachers and it truly has been a great experience for him over the years. The party today was lots of fun and the kids had such a great time. After all the rain and the cold temperature this morning we decided to have the egg hunt inside. We divided the kids in two groups and hid them in two different locations inside the church. The kids did not seem to mind being inside and had a great time. They all found 13 eggs filled with lots of candy and surprises. They also made an egg and cross craft and did a great job. For snack with had Easter egg brownies, bunny marshmallows, and vanilla ice cream with juice. At the end of the party the kids played bunny bowling, bunny toss, and a bean bag game. They all had a great time and were so well behaved. It is such a nice group of kids and wonderful teachers!

Big Helper

What a big helper!
Trying to fit it all in!
Look at his loading skills.
Baylor has been wanting to help at home more and more. Last night he was on a clean sweep rampage all by himself. He straightened the game room, Cooper's room, and his room. He folded a load of clothes and then helped clean up the kitchen after dinner. He did not want us to help him at all. He cleared the table and washed off all the dishes and even loaded them in the dishwasher. Baylor also swept the floor with the broom and cleaned off the counter and table. He was quite proud of all his hard work and we kept telling him how awesome he was! He earned himself some extra minutes before bed time which he was super excited about.

EGG-citing Time

Ready for egg hunting fun!
Having fun!
He's getting so big!
Running together.
He couldn't wait to open his candy!
Even though they fight and argue at times they sure do love each other. I hope they always stay close and grow to be best friends.
Thanks Jaxon for a great party!
Eating a yummy lunch.

What adorable bunny treats.
He really is fast.
When we got home we watched Toy Story AGAIN!
He couldn't decide if he wanted to be Buzz or Woody. Why not both?
One of my friends from church hosted an egg hunt for the kids. It was so much fun! Thankfully the rain held off until after the egg hunt. The boys are getting really good at hunting eggs and loved opening them to find their candy. Mr. Sweet Tooth, Cooper, wanted to hurry and eat all of his candy right away. After the egg hunt the kids had lunch. Janice had made the cutest bunny peanut butter sandwiches and chocolate haystacks. It was all so cute! After a tasty lunch the kids were able to play in the playland. They loved playing with all the kids and had such a great time. It started to rain really hard so it was a great place to play. What an egg-citing day!
