I hope everyone had a fabulous Easter!
Landry’s school had their Easter celebrations on Thursday – and the buckets were a big hit! It was also the first party since Halloween that Big Daddy got to go to!

The Easter bunny visited the kids, they each got stuffed animals and got to hunt eggs
Then we had lunch and an egg hunt at mom & dads
We tried family pictures as usual, I think I can get one to work.
I think the one’s of Keevan and Kaleb turned out cute
Terry tried climbing in the tree with the boys, it worked well until his hip locked up and I was a little worried we weren’t going to get him back out!  Made for some good laughs!
I love the pics of mom and dad, I think they are great!  My kids wouldn’t cooperate for one with Grandma, so the only one I got was with the boys.
After that we headed to Chris’ family celebrations, but I didn’t even get my camera out of the car.
We had a great day (even with fussy babies)!
We thank our good Lord everyday for our blessings!

Shout out to my wonderful hubby, who did a fantastic job on his driver’s test at the fire station this morning (ranked first and made a GREAT score!).  We are SO extremely proud of you Big Daddy! Way to go!

Look Who's Crawling!!

That's right! She now officially can crawl!
Up until now she's kinda done some weird army crawl, wiggle, roll, stretch moves to get to what she wants.  Not anymore!

Nowhere is safe now!

Love this one! The girl knows what she wants!

Easter Buckets

Landry’s school is having their Easter celebrations on Thursday.  I had originally planned on making something out of wood, but dad suggested paint buckets.  So, paint buckets it was!
Usually the paint buckets we use are metal, but one of our suppliers is now using plastic, so that’s what they gave us!  Hey-free of any kind is great! I’ll take it! Smile
They started like this…

And 14 buckets later, now look like this!

I designed everything on Make the Cut and then cut it out on my Cricut!  It took me a long time. A L.O.N.G time (mainly because I kept changing my mind on what to put on them).  But I think they turned out pretty cute, so I’m happy!

Did all this on the Cricut too (and vinyl of course)

Then… I went to Eighteen25 and printed off these awesomely cute peep bag toppers! LOVE them! (I really think their site is one of the best out there… you should go there now!)
Folded them in half
Placed a line of peeps in a snack sized baggie and stapled the topper on!
I mean really, could they possible be any cuter?!
And here’s the finished product! Stuffed with Easter grass, filled with eggs, pencils, Easter tattoo’s and their peep bags!
That’s about it!
 Happy Easter!

8 Months

Ansley Dawn, you are 8 months old today!

8 months 019

So pretty girl, what have you been up to?

8 months 043

When I took you to the doc on Saturday, you weighed 19.25 lbs (although that was with you dressed & shoes on, so that’s not truly accurate!)

You are still wearing size 3 diapers.

You can still fit in some of your 6-9 month clothing, but majority of your clothes are 9 months and dresses are 12 months (like the one in these pics!)

8 months 014

You have 2 teeth!! And they are sharp!

8 months 018-1

You still eat 2 “meals” a day, along with snacks now.

You are sleeping much better! You usually go down around 8-8:30, wake up once during the night (knock on wood) and get up in the mornings anywhere from 7 to 8:30.  Mornings depend on what time your brother wakes up.  The first thing he does is run to your room yelling “hey Ansley” or “RRROOOAAARRRR!”  Crazy boy.

8 months 020-1

You sleep on your stomach.  You have no interest in your back anymore.  As soon as we lay you down anywhere you immediately roll over to your belly.

8 months 021-1

You still love your jumper.  Sometimes I don’t see how you don’t jump right out of it you can bounce so high!

8 months 024-1

You make THE funniest faces.  I think sometimes you do them just to make us laugh!

8 months 026

You are SO close to crawling! You get up on all fours and rock as fast as you can.  You can scoot and wiggle to get where you want to go though and I think it’s a matter of days before  you take off!

8 months 028

Have I mentioned that you’re growing up too fast?

8 months 049

It really feels like yesterday when we were blessed by you being born and now we are only 4 months away from your 1st birthday!

8 months 029

I think you are just the most precious thing ever in the world (besides your brother!) and I don’t know what we did without you!

8 months 040

And as shocking as it is, your brother is by far your favorite person still!  You LOVE him.  He’s really into taking pictures with you now, but when you tell him to smile, he does this…

8 months 056

Baby girl, we love you so much!  You are at such a fun age, you learn new things every day and have such a wonderful personality.  You truly completed our family and we are so blessed by you and your brother!

8 months 019

Happy 8 month birthday baby girl!  We Love You!
