Easter Eggstravaganza

This friday, we had a great group of friends and family over to color easter eggs. Since Easter fell so late this year, I thought it would be a great idea to let the kids swim too. Avery was so excited about her friends coming over to swim. I woke up super early that morning to try and get a bunch of school stuff knocked out so I could enjoy the day with my family.

Peyton loved her first dip in the pool

That Friday morning, Avery told me, "Momma, the easter bunny told me we don't have to kill those eggs." After I thought about it, I said, "Oh, no, today we are going to color the eggs. Dying eggs means to color them." :)

This pic is after the kids got done swimming and were playing in the playroom. Sorry Larry, I couldn't resist...

Two weeks to go...

Normally at this point at the semester, I am on the home stretch, but NO, not this semester. I only have two weeks to go and can BARELY see the end in sight..ugh! I am so ready to spend some time with my family and relax. I finished up my clinical part, but still have so many assignments to turn in and then finals, yikes. But....I am almost halfway there....then 2 weeks off before the summer semester starts back up again.

Just a random picture on a saturday morning.

Disney on Ice

This Sunday, a group of my girlfriends and all of the kids loaded up for Disney on Ice. It was a really cute show, and of course the kids had a blast. This was Avery's first "ice show", and she she loved it.

My little 'Jessie'

By far, her favorite part was Barbie and the dancers. My favorite part was when Ken came out in his ascot. I'm gonna try my best to get Brian to be Ken for halloween ;) And a big thanks to Rachael for calling Ticketmaster to get all of the tickets, they were perfect!

Check-up and a Bunny trip

This past Friday, I finally took Avery in for her 3 year visit with the Pediatrician. As soon as we pulled into the parking lot she said, "Hey, no Mom, I'm not sick!" Once I reassured her, she was fine. They really just did an overall assessment and did a small vision check. No shots, which was nice. Here are her 3 yr old stats:

  • Height: 3'3" (85th percentile)

  • Weight: 30lbs 9oz (44th percentile)

She has been sooo talkative the last few months, to the point where Brian asked, "Do you think something is wrong with her?" when he found her in full conversation with her dolls. Lately she is really into pretending she is a cat, I caught her last night lapping up the bath water like a kitten...nice. She is also very into babies. Her teacher at school came up to me and said, "oh, congratulations, Avery told the class your secret. I thought to myself, oh dear, what has she shared!" Then her teacher told me that she told the class that her mommy had a baby girl in her belly. Wow, I don't think she knows what she is asking for!

Now, On the the Bunny trip....

Avery was super excited this year to see the Easter Bunny.

And what's a trip to the mall without a ride on Bambi the deer?

Have a great week!

Texas Bluebonnets 2011

You know spring has officially arrived in Texas when the blubonnets are in bloom. Well, so far I have tried every year to get some good pics of Avery in the bluebonnets, and this is the first year it did not end in total failure. If you know her well, she is usually sooo hard to take pics of. All the way there she told me, "Mom, I'm not gonna take any pictures today."....little turd. However, she knew Peyton was coming, so I just told her that was fine, I would just take pictures of Peyton. She changed her tune quick!, ha!

I think this one is cute...poor Peyton...

I'm not really sure what she is doing here, but I think she was trying to get our attention while we were taking Peyton's picture :)
