Time Out

So for the 5 people who read this blog, you've probably noticed that I haven't been blogging in awhile.  At the beginning of summer I decided to take a break from blogging...it was getting annoying and I always felt like I had to keep up with everything here but I was always behind and it was just overwhelming.  So, I'm taking a break for the summer and I just want to reevaluate and see if I miss blogging or not.  So maybe I'll see you in September, maybe not!  We will see :)

No More Space!

Well friends, I had every intention of getting all caught up on April posts and starting some May ones this weekend (we're trying potty training out for the first time and I'm literally just sitting and watching them play and asking them a MILLION times if they need to go) and I just got a message from Blogger that I've reached my limit with pictures!  Wahhhh!!!  How am I supposed to get caught up if they restricted my photo amount?  Grrrr....I'll have to wait till my in-house tech guy (Ben) gets a chance to figure it out for me.

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

Easter 2017-Part 2

Here you go, part 2!  The Easter Bunny came last year but the girls didn't really get it....this year was a whole different story!  They totally got the basket and egg hunts and goodies inside the basket.  We also talked a lot about Jesus and how he died for us.  I think that went over their heads but we will keep working on it!

Growing up, the Easter Bunny always hid our Easter baskets so I hid the girls' baskets this year.  It took them a few minutes to find them but they did it!

After I worked in the nursery, we went to my in-laws house for Easter dinner.  The girls ate before us and napped while we enjoyed our dinner.  The woke up just in time for dessert!

Easter 2017-Part 1

Easter is one of my favorite holidays to celebrate for the sheer fact that we're celebrating Jesus and his victory over death!  Every year Easter gets to me, how one person selflessly died for the entire world.  It's amazing!

We started our Easter weekend off by dying Easter eggs together Friday night!  This was the girls' first time dying eggs and they loved it!  Ben was smart and said we should dye the eggs outside, just in case.  The girls loved drawing on the eggs with the special crayon and plopping them into the cups of dye.  They also enjoyed trying to take the eggs out with the spoon which usually resulted in some spillage.  We ended the night with only one cracked egg and one cup spilled...I consider that a win with two toddlers!

We celebrated Easter by going to church as a family Saturday night.  I was working in the nursery Sunday morning so we went the night before to the service.

One nice thing about Easter being in April is you're more likely to have warm weather!


 
Upset over something and wouldn't sit next to her sister for a picture.

If anyone can make them laugh, it's big sister Riley.





 Did the video work?  Wanted to try posting one without having to go through Youtube.

I just realized how long this post is becoming so I'll do Easter Sunday in a part 2 post!
