Happy Easter 2012

From our family of beautiful kids to yours, we hope you had a wonderful Easter!
We took this handsome lil fella to Ohio to spend time with his cousins for Easter weekend and since we had ordered them all matching outfits we took some time for a little photo session.
and of course he was hamming it up for the camera!

my heart skips a beat
love these kiddos and how they were all taking a break sitting on the edge which made for a perfect little picture without even having to ask!!
and then it was off to Imagination Station for some afternoon fun and pizza for dinner. We couldn't pass this up this urban photo opt

I just love 'em all!!
And then after church on Sunday we went back to Nawna's house for brunch and of course the kids favorite...the Easter Egg Hunt!
Ready, set, go!

and then it was off to home to see if the Easter Bunny left any eggs at our own house...and of coarse, he did!

5th Birthday* B*A*S*H*

Turning 5 just wouldn't have been complete without an all out camo, "army-guy", birthday BASH!
Oh, and the cake you ask, yes it was made by yours truly and my sister Holly specifically to meet all the requirements and expectations of our two little men!
and I have to admit I love the way it turned out!
and then it was off to the backyard for the Birthday Bash Boot Camp obstacle course. Thank goodness it was a beautiful 55 degree day in the middle of February!

How lucky the boys are to have a birthday so close together and so many friends to help them celebrate such a special day!

Christmas 2011

This year to help us celebrate in our new home we decided to start a new tradition. Carter asked if we could go the the Christmas Tree Farm and pick the "most perfect tree". So just after Thanksgiving we headed to Stonycreek Farms to find our special tree. Now if you have ever read The Three Trees (which we read every year at Christmas), you will know why I had a hard time doing this, but in the end we picked out the most beautiful tree and brought it home. And it filled our living room with so much light and beauty that it brought a smile to my face every single day!

I smile even bigger when I see this little cutie
and my heart jumps for joy at the sound of his voice!

All hands pitched in to make the first cut and then it was all daddy and Carter from there. Aren't they the cutest little lumberjacks you have ever seen?

We had a wonderful Christmas full of good food, sweet treats, family, friends and everything GI Joe!
