Happy Easter!

Easter morning began with bunny pancakes and baskets full of goodies.

After lots of sugar, it was time to get ready for church.  Leyton was the first one ready and he was just too cute for words.

Sometimes it is a chore to get pictures with all three boys but I know one day I will be glad I "bribed" these three for pictures.


Holden and Rylan wanted a picture of the two of them together....these two just look like trouble!

We made it to Easter service with time to spare, which if you must know, that is not the case each week!

The weather was anything but "spring-like".  It was raining and cold.  So instead of having an Easter egg hunt outside, I made glow in the dark eggs to hide in the basement.

We hide several rounds of eggs before Holden found the golden egg in the refrigerator.  

We played games, enjoyed time together and celebrated Resurrection Sunday.

Spring Break Road Trip!  {March 19}

Kevin and Holden went to the Pacers vs. Thunder Game.  I was hoping to have Kevin take pictures, since they had great seats, however, Kevin got my camera lens confiscated as they were walking through security.  Who knew that any lens over 6' inches is considered a weapon?!?  They had fun cheering on both teams and retrieved my lens before returning to the hotel.  These phone pictures will just have to go in the memory books for Spring Break 2016!  {March 20}

Fun in Indy! {March 21}

We hit a few of our favorite spots as we passed through Cincinnati.  {March 22}

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Well, I am a little behind in posting our St. Patrick's Day festivities but here we go...

The night before St. Patrick's Day, Rylan was determined to set a trap to catch a little leprechaun.  He made a box with lots of colors, glue, pencils and stairs.

He set his trap down in the basement before bed that night in hopes he would catch one.  Unfortunately, no such luck but the leprechaun did leave lots of mischief when he came to visit us.


  Our little leprechaun left a note and a little gold for each of the boys.  For breakfast, there was lots of green treats to wear and Lucky Charms!  {A St. Patrick's Day favorite around here.}


After school, I surprised the boys with more gold and rainbow cupcakes.  


These three lucky charms were excited by these colorful treats and were a little crazy with the sunglasses and hats!

Happy St. Patrick's Day from our little leprechauns to yours!
