Easter morning!

Only day of the year that I let the children have candy for breakfast. ¬†ūüėČ The Easter Bunny was lacking her usual basket mojo this year. ¬†The girls received a Cinderella Barbie, sunglasses, bubbles and candy (in recycled baskets, no less). ¬†I still think it was a decent haul for two little girls. This is …

Pretty Walk

We are experiencing a beautiful, sunny, Easter weekend. ¬†Last year, I foolishly took my family to the zoo on the Saturday before Easter. ¬†I had been unaware of the GIANT Easter egg hunt they host on that day. ¬†As much as today felt like a zoo day, we opted for a walk on the Centennial …

Dyeing Eggs and visiting the Easter Bunny

I guess we did a bit of Easter prep this weekend. ¬†Linlee requested that we dye eggs, so Rob, being a very good sport, facilitated¬†the activity. ¬†For some reason dyeing Easter eggs holds no magic for me. ¬†I love carving pumpkins for Halloween, but plopping eggs into a cup of colored vinegar? ¬†Eh. ¬†The girls …

3rd Day of Spring

No wonder it felt so cold yesterday!  It snowed a good portion of the morning.  Then the sun came out, melted everything and it turned into a beautiful afternoon.  Hard to believe looking at the second picture.

My Two Sweethearts

They were outside playing with sidewalk chalk, but it was cold. ¬†They are in their winter coats for a reason! ¬†(I rarely drink tea, but it’s several hours later and I think I need a cup to warm up.)

Call Me Trouble

My parents do. ¬†Call me “trouble,” that is. ¬†It’s not totally fair because I’m also adorable. ¬†My mom has promised me a post in the near future titled, “Call Me Adorable.” ¬†In the meantime, I’m supposed to reveal ten facts about myself which have contributed to the nickname Trouble. 1. I will suck down a …

Cute Play Date

Holly really likes getting out of the house these days, so we are always open to play dates and adventures ¬†(before nap time, anyway). ¬†Today we headed north to visit with my friend Jodi and her little one, Madison. ¬†Madison recently turned two. ¬†The girls were so so cute together. ¬†They played well and giggled …

A post!

Goodness me, I’ve gone a whole week without a post. ¬†That is not like me at all. ¬†It’s hard to believe that I posted almost daily back when Linlee was a toddler. ¬†Holly is a different kind of toddler; daily posts are a thing of the past. ¬†But still, I’d like to post at least …

Holly and the Boys

What am I going to do with this child? ¬†If she is not eating toothpaste, coloring on the walls, or dumping out my face powder (all highlights from this week), she is aligning herself with a gang of boys at the local playground. ¬†She is never going to give me a break. ¬†I am going …

The Dentist and No Sleep

I took the girls to the dentist Monday morning. ¬†The last time they went, they both screamed hysterically the entire time, so I was not looking forward to it. ¬†Visiting the dentist has always been traumatic for Linlee. ¬†She actually did better on Monday than previous visits, but still cried the entire time. ¬† I …
