Just Spin'n around

DS#4 & my Niece, M, were having a super fabulous time on the spinner! You can imagine the delightful little squeals of laughter we got to enjoy hearing while they played together with this toy. DS#4 & M are best buds - they love playing and hanging out together. Watching them and the bond between them reminds me when the big boys were this age and what wonderful playmates there were (and still are). There's more squabbling now, but this age was truly simplistic. Littlest man will miss his M when she leaves from their visit. . . he loves her so. . .

Warm Weather

We rose to lovely warm weather and the sun shining - woohoo! We ate breakfast and got ourselves outside to enjoy the fabulous weather. The boys rode their bikes and scooters, we did some rollerblading, and headed out for a nice nature walk. Hopefully continued warmer days are on the horizon!

Christ is Risen!

DS#4 was thrilled to find his Easter basket - he immediately went for the organic graham sticks! And he was oh so proud of his new boxers he received - so much so that he insisted on trying every pair on! lol
Ah yes, DS#1 - he is our chocolate eater at Easter time, boy does he like to scarf down the candy! lol He 1st enjoyed his organic chocolate chip cookies and then moved on to his 'Seeds of Faith' candy as he mulled over his new notebook.

DS#2 - he immediately starting scanning the new videos in his basket and decided to choose one of his Kids 10 Commandments for some entertainment. These are great videos and I cannot recommend them enough - sooo worth adding to your video library. Our little men all enjoy them and they have such a wonderful way of teaching/reaching the kids so they truly get the message and have a good conceptual understanding of the commandment it's focusing on. He is our slow eater (yes, like his Mama) so he enjoyed his "treats" for pretty much the morning hours! lol
DS#3 - he truly LOVES the seeking out of his basket, and truth be told, he's quite the good little hunter! When devouring his treats, he opens them all and samples a little bit from each at a time. . . he's such a hoot to watch! Oh and he let us know that perhaps next year we may want to try hiding his basket 'a little harder'! lol (It never fails, he makes us laugh all the time)

Happy Times

This was one of these days where we just laughed, laughed, and laughed some more! As the saying goes, 'Laughing is good for the soul'. . . oh so true! A little bit of laughter goes a long ways. . .

Deep in Thought

DS#4 thinking long and hard about what he was studying. You know, this age is such an incredible time to witness because they are just truly little people figuring out how the world works and how it all pieces together. . . I just love it, I truly do. . .

Tea Party

M got the most beautiful tea set for her birthday from her Mommy and she loves it so. The boys were able to enjoy some tea time with her during our visit. I love the bottom picture of her. . . isn't she just gorgeous?

Birthday Girl

My Niece, M, turned 3! Hard to believe. . . seems like yesterday I was witnessing her amazing birth into this world. We made the trip up for her party and got to enjoy a few extra days with family and just hang out with my sis & M - what a lovely time we all had. We actually got caught in a horrible ice storm on our return trip home so praise the Lord for safe travels.
