Owen's Baptism

We went to Cincinnati Sunday to celebrate the baptism of our nephew/cousin, Owen.  I have been blessed with the pleasure of serving as his Godmother.  He is SO cute and such a good baby!   

 Addie had to smell all of the flowers!

She and another of Owen's cousins, Mikey, had a great time together. 

Back at the party, Poppy enjoyed playing with the little ones...and vise versa!

Me and my older sis, Lori.

I'm thinking it's going to be a few years until we actually get a decent picture of these four little monkeys!


Easter fell on my birthday this year, so it was an extra special day.  We had some company in for the weekend - Mom, Phil, Julie, Josh, Noah and Faith - and Dustin's family and a couple of our friends joined us for brunch as well.   It was such a fun day!

 Easter baskets!

We started a tradition a few years back to hide the kid's Easter baskets and let them search for them.  After getting ready for church, they went searching!

Addie found hers behind the sofa

The Easter Bunny hid Noah's behind the drapes

Addie finally got a Pillow Pet - has been wanting one since Christmas!



 We hid 75 Easter eggs for the kids and Chase found them before the egg hunt began!

Sand Table

Chase enjoyed his first time playing in the sand table with Sissy.  

Putting a little in our hair.

And our mouth.

Not a fan, little buddy?
