Easter Bunny

With Easter a few days away, I thought these pictures were appropriate. Say hello to the cutest little Easter bunny.

Happy Easter

These pictures MAY be from Thanksgiving. Every child must have their picture taken with olives on each finger.

I'm starting a new trend. You've heard of Christmas in July right? Feast your eyes on Christmas in April. Tada! Here are a few pictures of Christmas morning at our house.

We're all smiling at the same time. Woohoo!
We're a very serious family

Messages from the Kids

I recorded the kids tonight for a few minutes. Let them each do what they wanted. Abby wanted to look her best. She put on her jewelry before singing a Cinderella song. Ethan decided to sing a song too.

Twinkle Toes

Abby LOVES to dress up. She loves going into her room and putting on random things. One day she came out with a winter fleece hat on, gloves, necklaces, purse, cowboy boots and leg warmers over her pj's. Other days she a princess and zaps you with her magic wand. This morning she wanted to be a dancer. Thanks to Uncle Mike and Aunt Becky for the princess leotard and leg warmers she got for Christmas. Why not put them over your pj's and throw on some tinkerbell shoes. As you can see, twirling is the best part about this outfit. You know you're wanting some leg warmers now too.

Our Spare Time

A while back we went to Big Al's for some big ol' fun. I even have some video below. Yay me!

Trying out some Different Moves

When Ethan plays, he really gets into the gameAnd then there's Abby who likes to dance while the fan blows in her face
Ethan takes bowling seriously like his Mommy. Look at my serious bowling pose. That's right before I got a strike =). Ya don't want to mess with me people.
Come on Come on
This thing is a wee bit heavy
Getting ready for their turn while I'm getting another strike or not Lovin' the Fan

King and Queen for the Night

Friday night we headed to the Disney Store for a Mickey and Minnie Masquerade Party. I had always been curious about these little events they did each month, but had never gone. The kids had a great time. They watched a cartoon, made king and queen crowns, had a dance party, and did a costume parade at the end. I wish I had video taped Ethan dancing during the dance party. He was showing off his BEST moves. I smile just thinking about it. They will be having a CARS 2 party one of next few times. The kids had a great time and it was free! Bonus! Not free was the Starbucks we passed on the way out of the mall, but come on. It was for the kids and had nothing to do with me =). Well maybe it was a win win.

Saturday at the Park

We had the best time today at this park in Wilsonville. The main event here is the huge slide. We spent 2 hours at the park and I bet an hour and a half was on the slide. The sun even came out for a few minutes! As we were leaving Ethan said, "This park is better than Star Wars!" Success! Huge compliment from my little Star Wars fan. Right after that he stopped walking and decided to say a little prayer. He thanked God for the park and the big slide. I love that he did that without any prompting. We'll be back.

He picked a flower for me =)
