Easter 2019

I want to start off by saying that we so badly missed Chloe at Easter yesterday. She’s off on a school trip to Costa Rica and Panama. I know that she is having the time of her life but I think she missed us also. Can’t wait to have her back in a few hours!!

I am a sucker for tradition! Every year we go to the town field for an Easter egg hunt with the kids. This year I totally was not feeling it. I didn’t even bring it up hoping that everyone would forget about it. I felt a little guilty but figured that Beckett is only 3 and I would take him next year. He would never know. Then I realized that Beckett is 3!!!! We only have a few more years to do this kind of thing. So I quickly reminded everyone about the hunt and off we went!

I am SO SO glad we went! He had a great time running around collecting all of the eggs. Lucy, Jon and I also had a great time watching and cheering him on. I don’t ever want to take these moments for granted again!

Lucy and Beckett kept busy the day before Easter baking Easter cupcakes and orange chocolate dipped strawberries.

Eggs were painted

and carrots were put out. Early bedtimes were had by all so the bunny could come and leave treats

Beckett is into Jake and the Neverland Pirates so the Easter bunny put his goodies in a treasure chest this yearimg_7323

The Easter bunny must know that Lucy likes to go Rae Dunn hunting with me because he put her stuff in a new Dunn Easter basket. 57750182938__f43b55bd-7e23-4834-aaef-706fde200c1d

The older girls get boring baskets but they love their new shoes!

He left Chloe her Birk’s a few days before she went on her vacation but left her a little treat for when she gets home 🙂

We went to my parents for a couple of hours in the morning. It was so nice for the kids to be able to hang out with their cousins for a little while.

In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb

April 8th!! What?!?!? Happy Birthday to my mom!!

I feel like I blinked and March was gone and April seems to be heading the same way. This little space has been quiet but life definitely isn’t! The other day I was playing in the driveway with Lucy and Beckett and it hit me that I’ve had babies and kids for the last 23 (next month) years!! I’ve spent my entire adult life as a mom. I can’t imagine having life any other way but WOW!!

I’ve taken a lot of pictures over the last few weeks so here goes:

Lucy got some gummy sushi from Amazon. It tasted about as great as regular sushi. Ha!

As we were walking in the grocery aisle the other day he said “hey, mom, take a picture of this and planted a big kiss on Lucy.

The weather has been so nice so we’ve been spending a lot of time outside.

Jon and I had a date night last week and I had to snap a picture of this gorgeous sunset.

The last two years Tracey has been coming up to spend a day with me. We go shopping, out to lunch and she does my school runs with me. It’s turning into one of my favorite days of the year. Tracey fun fact: when I moved up here she would come up every couple of weeks to spend the day with me and the girls. I think she felt bad because she knew I was all alone up here. She’s the BEST!!

School lunch for Lucy

Beckett lunch. He’s so picky!! I’m having the hardest time trying to get nutritious meals into this kid. He is all about junk food so now I have to limit what we keep in the house. Which is obviously a good thing. Haha! Thanks, Beckett!!

Marlene found this old puzzle that she was gifted about 13 years ago.  Look at those sweet little faces!

I can’t wait for school to be out for the summer so I can have all the pieces to this Friary puzzle back home for a few months!
