spring cleaning!

We've been pretty busy over here lately.. 
..busy painting!

We have moved our bedroom upstairs to make room for the kids to have their own rooms downstairs. It has been a slow process, but we're getting there! 

Aidan LOVED helping us paint!

While I primed the trim, Aidan got to work making masterpieces on the wall.. 

.. love his original works of art!

Since Tony refinished all of the wood floors upstairs, it was MY turn to paint!

My hubby HATES to paint, and I gladly took up his offer to watch the kids while I got to painting!

I also enlisted the help of my Mom, who has been such a HUGE help!

*thanks Mom!*

Now we're all moved in upstairs, and currently working on Adalyn's bedroom.. 
hoping to finish up her space soon!

happy Easter!

We hope that you all had a wonderful Easter!

It was like Christmas morning here bright & early this Easter.. 
Aidan had us up early to see what the Easter bunny brought!

Look who else got a little Easter surprise! ;)

After Aidan was done checking out his goodies, he helped Adalyn dig into her basket!

We know that Easter isn't about the Easter bunny,
and we make sure that Aidan (and soon Adalyn too!) knows the real reason that we celebrate..
the Resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ!

It has become a tradition to make Resurrection rolls for breakfast Easter morning..

I LOVE this tradition!

We always go to my Dad's home for Easter dinner, and an Easter egg hunt too!

Here's all of us girls at Easter, it was such a beautiful day!

After dinner & the hunt, I was surprised by a birthday cake!

Got a little help with the candles too! 

We had a great time visiting with family! 

Mommy wasn't too good at taking pictures.. 
Adalyn & Daddy had a fun time too! :)


for Grammie..

Here's proof that your granddaughter is getting her tummy time..

.. and that your grandson is an attention hog! 

Love ya Grammie! :)

3 months old..

Adalyn at 3 months:

12 lbs. 2 oz.

22 1/2 inches.

3 months old already! 

Adalyn has definitely started to show us her personality this month.. and her infectious smile! 

She still loves to be held all of the time, 
and really loves to coo & "talk" to you as well.. she is growing up so fast!

She's sleeping a bit more through the night and has a more predictable nap schedule.. 
which makes for a happier Mommy too! :)
