Spring has Sprung!!!

It was a beautiful day so I took the kids out and snapped a few shots!!

The Woidka's visit!!

My sister Allison and her family came to visit! We visited the candy factory, the children's museum, went swimming, and to the aquarium. They were even lucky enough to get to experience a blizzard!! We had lots of fun and miss them already!!

At the candy factory notice all the kids have mouthfuls of candy!

Happy Easter!!!

Here are some pictures of our little Easter babies!!!

First time in piggies at church!

Easter Fun!!

We started out by dying eggs. Note to self do not attempt again with Preston around!! The kids had fun, especially Dorothy who assigned a color to each egg (we call her bossy bum!)
Then Saturday (yes we do it on Sat.) the Easter bunny came and sent them on a treasure hunt to find their baskets! Dorothy and Preston had fun running all over the house looking for each clue!
Bossy bum dying eggs!

Do these two have anything in common?

They should! While pinning up a quilt the other day I accidentally dropped the iron on my leg... OUCH!! Just thought I would share why I am "the idiot of the week!"

This actually looks better than it did! Now that the blisters have gone down!

"Daddy's taking me sledding!!!"

The other day we woke up to a small layer of snow... Dorothy looked out the window and immediately yelled "Daddy's taking me sledding!" So we bundled the kiddos up and went across the street to go sledding!

While waiting for Daddy to blow up the tube they played around

And then Dorothy pushed Preston around on his birthday present!

The daring duo!

It looked so fun I had to try it!

Daddy taking them sledding!

Little Violet stayed inside and took a nap! -notice the piggies!
(I cannot wait for that hair to grow so I can do it everyday!)

Ka Chow!! Preston turns two!!!

I can't believe this was two years ago!

Preston turned two on March 23rd!! We of course had a Cars party for him! He loved, loved, loved it!! The kids had fun finding Mater's hood (treasure hunt), putting a road back together, tractor tippin', and the pinata! It was a lot of work but totally worth it!!

The cakes!! I spent all morning keeping Preston from destroying them!

License plates

Some of the decorations (thanks Maria!)

Blowing out the candle!!

Happy birthday little buddy! We love you!!!
