Happy Easter

We had a fun Easter weekend!! Yummy dinner, family, chocolate and candy galore, a yummy strawberry shortcake and a fun Easter egg hunt!!! I need to get rid of this candy that the Easter Bunny brought to our house, before this 8 lbs. that I have lost this month sneaks back on!! Funny how it does that...I have to work and work and work and work to get it off, but it sneaks back on without any effort at all!!!  Anyway, we woke up Saturday morning (The Easter Bunny comes to our house on Saturday, so we can celebrate the true meaning of Easter on Sunday) to find what the Easter Bunny had brought the kids...Austin got some handcuffs (He so badly, wants to be a police officer when he grows up and has been dying for a pair of his own handcuffs) and Alyssa got lipsticks (what was the Easter Bunny thinking?? This little girl is in love with , chap stick, lip gloss, lip stick, and anything that looks like it might be lipstick, the only problem is she doesn't STOP putting it on) they loved their prizes and of course their treats!!!! 

We had an Easter egg hunt with Austin and Alyssa's cousins, they were so cute running all over the backyard trying to find their eggs...they each got to find 10, no crying, fighting, or complaining it was perfect!!!

We had a yummy dinner with cheesy potatoes, ham, rolls and veggies and did I mention the Strawberry Shortcake for dessert...yummy!! It was Ashley's birthday cake, since we didn't get a chance to have a cake for her last weekend on her 15th birthday!!!! 

Because it was spring break, my sisters kids were out of school, so I watched both my sisters kids on Thursday and Friday, before Easter. I waited for my sister Melissa to get home before we attempted to color eggs. All 9 kids had a blast and luckily and miraculously no major spills!!! unheard of considering  at least one drink gets spilled during each meal!!! They were so proud of their creations...and  want to know what was better than all these things that happened this weekend...the wonderful aroma the 84 hard boiled eggs gave our house!!!

Austin and Alyssa dressed their best for Easter Sunday

It's warming up!!!

We have been enjoying the warm weather...Chad and I started our nightly walks again, the kids have pulled out their bikes and all of their outdoor toys, the trampoline has been up for a few weeks now, it's been great!!!!

Austin wanted to try out his spiderman skates, he got for his birthday. They are the kind that buckle around your shoes. Well, this fall/winter Austin had quite the growth spurt!! His shoes wouldn't fit inside the skates... he was so bummed...So he took off his shoes and just had his socks on. He looked so cute in his knee and elbow pads. He was doing a good job skating around. He wanted to go over to the church across the street from our house, and skate in the parking lot. I told him he needs to wait until he has a bit more practice, because at the church they don't have a deck railing to grab on to if you are going to fall!!

Alyssa is quite the bike rider. She already wants her training wheels OFF!!! She is doing awesome and is determined to keep up with Austin!!! She was showing off, showing us how she can turn around and pedal with one hand and with no hands...shes our little dare devil.

They have been having so much fun!!!! their favorite thing has been to walk over to the church and ride their bikes in the parking lot. And they will just run back and forth across the lot...I just say keep running!!! (they have been sleeping great!!!)

Alyssa also got some way cute flowers for her hair, and she attached it to her headband and did her own hair!!! She can do everything by herself!!!

(Angie and Cami, I would love to see a post on twiddle thumbs, on how to make these hair flowers, along with the nylon head wraps/bands...just a suggestion)

A Message from my love, Chad

Dear Friends and Family,
The National MS Society is kicking off Bike MS: Harmons Best Dam Bike Ride campaign. I am planning to be a part of that event in June 2009 and I am asking you to join me in the movement to end MS by making a contribution to support my effort.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is dedicated to ending the devastating effects of MS. They simultaneously fund research for a cure while also helping people who currently live with MS lead more fulfilling lives. I believe in the work they do, and I invite you to see for yourself all the good they've done for the MS community. More than 400,000 Americans live with MS, and your support can and will make changes in their lives.
Please help by making a donation - large or small - to end MS. Or, why not join me at the event? Become a participant and side by side, as teammates, we can work together to raise the funds to make a difference.
Whatever you can give will help! I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.
