Easter

Easter 2013

Easter 2013

This was our first year to dye Easter Eggs. Memphis crushed most of them within a few minutes reminding us why we’ve never bothered to try it before. Oh well, it was still fun and no cups of dye were spilled in the process so it was a success in my book. By the way, brown eggs dye the prettiest. The colors (while they lasted) were gorgeous.

“Can we hunt Easter eggs today?” was the question asked at least 10x a day during the three weeks prior to Easter. I just love how much excitement the boys have been for holidays and birthdays. Ezra’s already asking how many days until his next birthday! (It was two months ago. Two posts ago in blog time… shameful I know.) 

Remember the fun little project a alluded to last week? I’m putting together the announcement now. Stay tuned!

Christmas Recap

01.03.13

It’s not too late for a Christmas recap is it? Not in my world!

Christmas 2012

Christmas 2012 included lots of food, games, toys, and late nights. I think Christmas is way more fun with kids. We were as excited for them to open their presents as they were! :)

 

Christmas 2012

James – apparently the only toy we needed to get Memphis. He’s obsessed!

The boys love playing the piano with Grandma and Grandpa. Someday we’ll get one of our own, boys. I promise!

Traditional gingerbread house building contest.

I built a teepee. It was awesome.

Kenzie approved.

 

Christmas 2012

Memphis was out of control at Christmas dinner so I held him in a headlock until he passed out. Kidding! Christmas just had too much excitement for one little boy – he was out before the gravy boat made it’s way over to us.

It was a very merry Christmas! We were sad that we had to cut the trip short for a work emergency. One of the joys of being self-employed I guess. I missed out on visiting with all my TN friends. Do any of you girls even read this blog any more? [cricket... cricket...] No? Well, regardless, I feel like I haven’t seen ya’ll in ages. Miss you :(

The Christmas Lights at North Forest Beach

North Forest Beach Christmas Lights

We packed up the kiddos and headed down to North Forest Beach Saturday night to check out the Christmas lights we’d heard tale of. A group of neighbors gets together each year to decorate their entire street with twinkle lights and pump the night sky with bubbles and Christmas tunes. Nothing professional, but it’s magical all the same.

P.S. If you haven’t already, go download the latest Hey, It’s Christmas! album. It’s on repeat at our house.
