Egg Hunt

When we got home from church Sunday, I noticed there were no kids at the park across the street from our house. So I took advantage of that and had Theo go hide the eggs and let the kids find them. It was so fun to watch them. Olivia didn't know quite what to make of it and mainly found one or two eggs and ate the candy out of them. Carter, on the otherhand, racked up and when it was all over told his sister "Livie, you lose, I win!!"

This little guy hung out in the swing as usual
Olivia was able to wear her dress from last year. Omaw got this dress for her either before she was born or shortly afterward and I'm so excited she's gotten to wear it for two years. I have a feeling that unless she gets put on oral steroids again, she might get to wear it next year too!!
Can you tell who had which Easter basket?
We are two proud parents! We are so blessed to celebrate Easter with our three favorite kids in the world. It was a great day. More importantly, I'm so thankful we serve a risen Savior!!

Easter Fun

This year was the first year we've gotten to celebrate Easter at our home with Theo's parents. It made for a very special day. The weather could not have been better (contrasted with last year's awful nasty weather). We all attended mass as a family and the kids did so well considering how hot and crowded the church was.

Before church the kids "opened" their baskets. We don't really do the Easter bunny but we do get the kids some things.
The baskets were the same ones from last year I had made. And the paint pen most certainly wasn't permanent but the kids didn't seem to care!! Carter got a water balloon launcher, lots of water balloons for daddy to fill up :), a Cat in the Hat movie, bubbles, and a VeggieTales garden pail that included sunflower seeds. Olivia got lots of little Dora and princess stuff (including a lip gloss watch in which she proceeded to rub the gloss all over her lips and body yesterday),  and rainbow goldfish. Isaiah didn't get a whole lot. He got one little toy, yogurt melts and a book. They each got a "Jesus" chocolate fish which I thought was the coolest thing ever.

We hope you all had a blessed Easter. We sure did. I am so proud to be a part of this family. I am truly and richly blessed!

Our weekend

Despite having a very cranky, whiny, and needy Olivia, we have had a great weekend! Friday night Theo and I had an official date. We were planning on going to see Hunger Games but it was sold out. So we went to the little tea/coffee house right next to the movie theater and hung out there for a while instead. This is us before our date (from my cell phone camera). I love having such a handsome husband!

This is us at the coffee house (again from my phone camera...not the greatest quality!). I'm pretty sure we were some of the oldest people there but we felt hip anyway :)

Saturday, we all spent the day in Manitou Springs. The weather was gorgeous and there were a ton of people out. We shopped, ate, shopped some more, took the kids to the park. We had an all around great time. We were all exhausted when we got back home.

We ate lunch at the Heart of Jerusalem Cafe (thanks to a groupon I had!) The food was delicious. Isaiah particularly loved the bright yellow rice and being held by Pop Pops almost the whole time.
My three favorite fellas in the whole world!

Hope you all had as much fun and family time as we did this weekend!
