Brynn got a jump rope, new pajamas, and of course some candy. Addie got some clothes, a movie(which was secretly for Brynn), and some candy(for Brynn too). Our cookies turned out ok.
We then went to my dad's parents' for lunch. Brynn hunted eggs about 20 times with my aunt. Thanks Aunt Kaye! We saw my brother one last time before they headed back to Georgia.
Next, we went to Brandon's parents' for dinner. It was sooo good!! Brynn hunted eggs another 20 times. You would think she would get tired of it but no!
We finally made home around 8. Holidays around our way sure wear you out but we love spending time with our family!
Ok I am leaving the one on here from slide just to see if it works but I made another one with all the pictures at photobucket. For some reason I just can't get slide to download anything. If anyone knows why please let me know.
Ok so I am crazy! I finally got slide to work. Since I already made both I couldn't decide which to use so I just left both on here.

So this year dyeing eggs was a lot more fun because she understood what was going on. I can't wait for Addie to be able to join in.
Yes this is my child standing in a chair without pants on beating a bag of pecans with a wooden spoon!
This step was a little challenging
A little salt
All ready for the oven
Taping the oven up
Easter Morning...our cookies are ready!

Addie started to crawl about 3 weeks ago. She is getting into every thing. I don't really remember the whole crawling stage. Brynn didn't crawl until she was 9 months old and she walked at 10 months. So the whole crawling thing has become an issue. Addie is the COMPLETE opposite of Brynn in everything she does. This has been on different. She is opening every drawer she comes in contact with, pulling every cord she meets, oh and the sockets...thank goodness for those little covers. Brynn hasn't liked this stage either. Addie is beginning to take Brynn's toys and slobber on them which causes Brynn to have a melt down. Hopefully this is not a sign of what the future holds!
Almost as soon as Addie started crawling she started pulling up on things. She has only let go one time and she quickly feel down. She has not moved once she has pulled herself up. Honestly...I hope she doesn't....anytime soon. I don't want the walking to come.
Another event in Addie's life happened this week. She started waving and it is so cute. It is one of those backward sideways waves. She gets so excited when she waves at someone!
Easter was fun. I plan on posting about it this week. I am still playing catch up you know!
My brother and his family were home for Georgia. We got to see their new little baby. She slept the majority of the time we saw her. It was nice to see how much she has grown in 2 months.
This is Lilli

This truck was loaded down with all kinds of stuff. As I followed him down the road I waited for something..anything to fall off. Nothing did! Everything was loaded in just right. I also was waiting for the truck to tip over...it sure was swaying back and forth a lot. My only guess ( because he had so many shopping carts) was that maybe he was cleaning off vacant property that homeless people may have stayed.
Have you ever tried teaching a 3 year old to play baseball? It is a difficult task if I must say so myself! Some of the concepts were a little hard to grasp. For instance running the bases. She didn't get that you have to touch the bases when you run past them or that you need to stop when someone gets the ball. Oh, and when someone else hits the ball she thinks you get the ball and run around in circles.
I don't think we have a pro baseball player by any means...at least not yet!! We did have a great afternoon spending time outside...thank goodness it is getting warmer...but most of all I enjoyed the time with my family!
