Easter 2019

We had a fabulous Easter!! 
It was low key and we didn't over extend ourselves so it was nice and relaxed. 
We kicked off Easter weekend with the traditional egg coloring for the Easter Bunny to hide! 

Saturday morning was a torrential downpour. We had plans for an Easter egg hunt hosted by a local church. They posted that morning that all festivities were moved inside. So we headed over!
The girls had a blast plus got to hang our with their cousins which was a bonus. 
We walked away with prizes and bunches of candy! 

We had the rest of the day free so we went to the grocery store after the egg hunt and then home to snuggle and take naps on the rainy day. 
We spent the evening prepping food for the next day! 
Fruit kabobs made by these beauties. 

It was an early night and then after the girls drifted to sleep, we were visited by the Easter Bunny!

They slept until 7 the next morning and woke me up! They were super excited for their fitbits, personalized cups and new sandals! 

Apparently I was still a little sleepy because you can see my finger in that picture! Ha!
After they tore through their baskets, they headed outside to hunt the eggs that the bunny hid when he got off work at 5am. Ha!

After some laziness and snuggling, we got dressed and headed over The Feather's for the day. They hosted a fabulous dinner and had so much fun stuff for the kids. 
Team Morgan, Ava, and Jordyn! 

But it was Team Olivia and Addy who took home the win! 

We posed for some pictures before the kids took off!

Before we left we sat down for a mean game of bunny bingo!

We headed home and I could just kiss this little ones face off!

I realized I forgot to put something in their baskets so I gave them one more surprise with a paint your own cookie!

Such a happy day!

419 Day!

Good Friday fell on 419 Day. This is kind of a big deal in our area because we live in the 419 area code. I had to work and the girls were off school so Mama Katie stepped in and took the girls. 
John brought them to my work and Katie picked them up there. I had to sneak a picture with my favorites. 

After lunch and a visit to the local tshirt shop, they realized Ava wasn't feeling well. 
She wasn't perfect the night before and she may have played us a little so she could be with her friends. 

They headed back to Katie's so Ava could rest. It takes a village and I have a good one. I offered for her to bring Ava to me but she gladly took her home and babied her for the afternoon until I could get there. 
But...before that went down...our little loves made the 5:00 news! 
They were able to give a shout out to Toledo and 419!

Welcome to World, Baby Skylie!

Our pastor and their wife had their baby!! 
She was a few weeks early but perfect. I decided to give them their space and wait until they were settled to visit. 
The day after I got a message telling the password to the floor if I wanted to visit. 
I was there in 45 minutes. 
She's gorgeous and perfect and so so tiny. 

The Shields Family!!

Happy Birthday Bennett!

We spent a very cold and rainy Sunday road tripping to Westlake to celebrate Bennett's 2nd birthday! 
It was originally a busy day with lots of plans but that rain canceled quite a few things. Therefore we were able to stay and hang with our Cleveland family. 
The cousins had a blast and my babyhog self was digging on my snuggles with Baby Kelsey. 

Soccer Cousins!

Ava's first soccer game of the U12 league was against Woodmore. After comparing notes, we realized Jordyn was playing for Woodmore! 
Cousins vs Cousins brought out most of the family. 
It was a nail biter game with the Comets taking the W in the last couple of minutes of the game! 
We meet them again at the end of the season!
