Easter Sunday

Happy Belated Easter!  We had a very busy Easter weekend, from decorating Easter Eggs to our big family breakfast and egg hunt at our house.  My only regret is that I didn't get any pictures of the adults!  They just aren't as cute as the little ones. :-)

Jacob showing off his egg

And just what do you want me to do with that?

One of Teresa's awesome eggs

Micah's finished product

Caleb on the go

Most of the time Jacob wanted to play baseball instead of finding eggs!

How handsome is Micah!

Daddy helped Aidan find eggs

Jacob had fun searching

Teresa found an egg!

Anyone see an egg over there?


Last week we were SO lucky to be able to spend time with family from out of town.  The Smalley's moved to Oklahoma 1 1/2 years ago and we miss them SO much.  Most of the fam came over during their Easter break and we had a blast hanging out together.  Jane's kids were great with my kids and I am so thankful for any time we get to spend together.  Here are a few pics of our fun times.

It only took 2 years and 4 months . . .

 . . . for Jacob's hair to be long enough for his first hair cut!  Finally I decided it was time.  His cute curls were getting close to being cute mullet curls, that is if a mullet can still be cute - I don't know.  SO, we made the call and set up an appointment last night at Lolilocks.  It was really a great place.  Very kid friendly.  Jacob did really well.  He didn't particularly love it, but in between the photos I was able to talk to him about the zoo, or friends and he would sit still.  He never cried, just squirmed a little in the chair.  Oh, it also helped to have him squirt me with the spray bottle!   I have the before, after and in betweens.  There are quite a few pictures, as per usual, it was just so cute and funny, I couldn't leave many out.  Enjoy!

Before the cut

Back of hair before the cut

Pickin' out the right seat - a car of course!

Not really diggin' the spray bottle

Ahh!  I don't like this!

Check out that lip!

Already asking, "all done, all done?"

Ah, no touching please!

Spraying mama with the spray bottle helped!

Oh yeah, now were having fun!

Oh, no we're not- she's back!

And with clippers!
(They only tickled and were not loud at all!)

Mama, I am going to get you for this!!

Oh, we really are all done - that wasn't so bad!

Safe at home afterwards, with a cookie crumb face and a very handsome haircut!

And finally the back

Fun with Friends

The last two days have been filled with fun times with our friends!  Yesterday Melissa and Luke came over to play.  We hadn't seen them in while and it was so great to catch up.  In fact, we had so much fun we're going to do it again next week!  I'll try to get a few more pictures than I did this last time.  Then, today, our friends Mark and Justin came to play.  The boys had a blast playing together.  The weather couldn't have been better for either day.  Thanks again for coming to play!

Luke, Jacob and Aidan

The boys
Poor Luke didn't like Aidan leaning on him . . .my boys were just trying to figure out what was wrong! :-)

Our Time with Justin and Mark

Crazy Aidan-Man
The boys didn't quite understand the concept of waiting until they other moved before going down the slide.
Justin, focused and ready . . .
It seems my boys aren't the only monkeys around!
Aidan had a blast playing peek a boo with Mark
Justin flashin' a great smile!
Two-fistin' the drills . . .a true handy man in the works
Working together as a team!
