Remember Me??

OhEmGee. I cannot believe it's been almost 2 weeks since my last post! Well, actually, I guess I can believe it, considering how crazy-busy these past few weeks have been. Between moving into a new house, working on the old one to get it listed, plus Spring Break, work schedules, t-ball practices and Easter... whew! It's been ridiculous around here!

I'm happy to say we were finally able to get our old home listed, so the painting, yard work and massive clean up are over... now we sit and wait with our fingers crossed, hoping for a relatively quick sell. Since it was just listed over the weekend, and it's only Tuesday, we haven't had much time to truly settle into things here in the new house just yet. A majority of the past 2 weeks has been hubs at the old house working on projects to get it listed while I'm here at the new house, entertaining kids and doing projects to try to get settled into this place. Needless to say, it's been a tough few weeks. But as usual, we've managed to get through it and now we can (hopefully) focus on the new house while we try not to be too anxious/occupied with thoughts of the old house selling.

LO's been on Spring Break for a week and a half, and I'm SO HAPPY to report she finally returns to school tomorrow. Amen! I'm not sure how I'm gonna survive this summer, but I keep trying to remind myself that in just a few months, my little girl will be in "full time" school as a Kindergartener in elementary school. No more school 3 days per week 'til noon -- it's the full deal with 5 days per week 'til 2:30PM! Yikes! I'm gonna try my best to enjoy these lazy days of fun with both kiddos while I still can!

We had a nice and quiet Easter this year. Of course we headed to church Sunday morning, then home to ravage Easter baskets, eat lunch, and NAP (myself included, thankyouverymuch!) before heading over to my mom's for the big family dinner and Easter egg hunt. The kids had a great time and it was for the most part a relaxing day for mommy & daddy, too!

Here's the part where I post a zillion pics of the kids, so please either (A) enjoy them (probably because you're family and you can't help it) or (B) move on to the next blog you follow in your Reader! ;) But I'd suggest the former because, really, these kids are too darn cute! ;)

Saturday morning the kids and I had some fun dying Easter eggs! How amazing to have a pic with BOTH of them smiling AND looking at the camera! Wooot!


I can't believe how grown up this girl of mine is getting. She's so beautiful!


LO was super excited to see her eggs changing colors before her eyes. She was really into it this year!


Cheese!!!


This little guy was all into it, too. Just look at the concentration on his sweet face!


He, too, loved seeing his eggs change colors. He would shout out each color as he lifted the egg out of the cup.


I sure hope that stuff was non-toxic or whatever. Although he only had a blue thumb and finger for less than a day, so I'm sure it wasn't too bad. ;)


My cheesy boy!


Easter morning I opted not to have their baskets sitting out when they got up, mostly because LO almost always beats us up and I can imagine she would've torn through her basket without us. Instead, I had them ready to go and put them out on the counter after the kids were buckled in the car to head to church. When we came home, let's just say they were a tiny bit surprised.

Chase:


They had baskets full of goodies and, most notably, a new horse for LO and a Thomas bubble train for Chase. They. Loved. Them!


After lunch we took the kids out back to play with their new outdoor toys (bubble train, chalk, etc.). Check out this great shot of my boy. Those wheels of his are always turning!


As I mentioned, after naps we headed over to my moms for dinner and an Easter egg hunt for the young ones. LO and Chase had a blast and both found a TON of eggs.




Please pardon LO's crazy hairdo. She went all out with some hardcore egg hunting, hence the disheveled 'do.


It's never too early to bust into the candy, right??


I think they had a great day! I'm pretty sure any day that ends with a basketful of candy is a pretty darn good day! :)
