Easter Festivities

Today I let the girls color Easter eggs. I really didn't wanna deal with the mess by myself, since Michael is at work all day, but when I went to the store a few days ago I found this cool set that lets you dye them by shaking them in a cup. So no messy blue/pink/yellow/green/purple water that will inevitably be knocked over and turn my kitchen into an Easter egg. They very much enjoyed themselves and wanted to do even more. Now they're just counting down the minutes until the Easter bunny comes and hides them, and as Hailey let me know, leaves them candy, eggs, and toys.

I also braved the cold with all three girls this morning and took them to the Annual Kuna Easter Egg Hunt at the local high school. They LOVED it. Hailey took off right away and started grabbing them. She would shake them first to make sure something was in them, lol, and if she threw them back on the ground, it means she didn't hear anything in them, so I quickly picked it back up and threw it in her basket, knowing that it meant there was a prize. Silly girl! Aubrie on the other hand didn't want to pick up all the eggs. She only wanted pink ones. It took her a few minutes but she finally started getting whatever was closest. I forgot my diaper bag, which had my camera in it, so I have no pictures of that. Bummer! Hailey's little friend Shad won first prize and got a new BSU bronco bike. Yay Shad!

Just a cute girl...

To answer a few questions, yes, I found my camera. Lol, it was in the coffee table. There is a little slot underneath where we keep the laptop and a few other random things (read- crap). Aubrie pulled it out of there one day and I was like, Oh Duh! I guess it was just too obvious of a place to even think to look. So I've been trying to be better at taking pictures. These are of Brooklyn a few days before she turned 2 months. I managed to catch a smile in one of them even. She smiles here and there, but never when a camera is around.

Tubby Time

These pictures are of Brooklyn's first (or 3rd) time in the big bath. She doesn't LOVE it, but she doesn't cry at all either. The other two girls love to help me bathe her. Each time I start the tub for her they take off their pants so they can stand in the tub and help clean her. I'm sure they can't wait until she can sit up and join them in their fun tubs!

She rolls!

I tried to get Brooklyn rolling on camera the other day. But each time I stopped recording she would roll, or she would roll before I got the camera recording, so this is the best I could do! I kind of just caught her mid-roll.

100th Post!

Yay me!!! As a tribute to my blog, and myself being such an awesome Author, I'll post a picture of myself for my 1ooth post (yes people, the song, You're So Vain, is playing in my head too).Of course, you getta see cute Brooklyn too. Unlike my sister Heidi, I don't generally take pictures of myself at arms length from my camera... so this'll do!

The Reason I don't buy Marshmallow Cereal

So a few weeks ago while Hailey was at preschool, and Brooklyn was sleeping, I thought it would be safe to take a quick shower. So I left Aubrie in front of the TV and hopped in. Normally she comes in the bathroom 10 times while I'm showering to just bug me. Well after about 5 minutes I still hadn't seen her, so I got a bit nervous. Hopped out real quick to find her. And this is what she was doing...
Those were Marshmallow Mateys that my mom bought while she was in town, but if you look closely, there are almost NO marshmallows left. Silly girl!
