Easter Wrap up

This was our attempt to get a family picture on Easter Sunday. And some pics of the kids on the way home. Mimi and Papa did a great job tiring them out! Thanks for a fun and great Easter!

Jumping with Andrew

Mimi and Papa have a 'sunk in' family room, and Anna and Andrew had a blast jumping down (over?) the steps. Anna was a little unsure at first but I think Andrew helped her get over that quickly!

We decided to put in a small patio out front so that we could enjoy the front of the house a little bit more. Matt and my dad have slaved away for several weekends getting the area ready, then leveling the ground, and placing the pavers. The job required one rented tool (wet saw) from Home Depot and several more trips for supplies. We found the small set of table and chairs at Costco for a very modest price, and I couldn't help but to place a few flowers around to make it "homey." I know that Anna and Niki have already used the patio for lunch al fresco, and Matt and I are so excited to use it all summer long. Thanks to my men (MRG and dad) for tackling this project and making it happen!


I am going to attempt a few catchup posts, since I am a little behind. These first shots are from Easter weekend in Peoria. Anna had a blast playing with cousins, helping Mimi and Papa in the kitchen and also around the yard. PS the boots that Anna are wearing are Matt's from childhood!

I guess this means that she is too big for the bouncy seat now. Everytime I turn around after putting her into it recently - this is what she looks like. Hello? adult supervision? Are you there? I assure you, we are here.

Feeding time

Anna decided that she was going to feed Elsie tonight. A little messy for mom's taste, but overall - a job well done!

little sis

and another post about little sister too - she's alive as well.

seriously slacking

But here are some piggies to prove that we are still alive!

I just got these adorable dresses in the mail today! I ordered them on Etsy, and I think that I am going to have the girls wear them for their photo shoot in May. As Anna would say: Aw, cute!

Long time, no blog

Here's some funnies to keep you happy! I was going to save these and post them in a few days, but I couldn't keep them from you all any longer. They make me smile and laugh! Elsie is just getting over a case of Roseola, and she is finally feeling and acting like herself today after a week of being sick. She is such a happy baby, I am so glad to have her back. Goodbye sicky baby!
