We got the painting done in the house and it's soooo beautiful!!! I LOVE IT! Our neighbor across the street is a painter and he did it for us! It's amazing how fast it goes when you're not doing it yourself! They also replaced our chandalier for us too!
This was our Easter Egg hunt in the neighborhood on Saturday. Katie got 3 eggs and Taylor got 16.....we think Katie hasn't quite caught on to the concept of an Easter Egg Hunt. Overall, it was a lot of fun!
So for those of you who don't know, the Easter bunny comes to our house on Saturday. It helps him out since the demand is higher on Sunday and it helps us out since church is early on Sunday and Sunday really isn't about the Easter bunny anyhow. Here was the end of our scavenger hunt on saturday!
I'm a sucker and got Taylor a new blue soccer ball(well he doesn't have an old soccer ball)at Old Navy while picking up Katie's summer clothes. He sure love it! We were hoping to start him in soccer this spring at the Y but they don't start until they're 4. I guess we'll have to wait until next year.
On Saturday Katie got her haircut. So cute! I love it short again. I'll have to take a picture of the back because it's stacked and looks super cute on her. She loves it and the attention it's getting. She also loved going to the salon and getting it cut. Today is take-her-teachers-a-flower-day at school so that explains the flowers she's holding. A big thanks to Craig for running out this morning to pick them up for us!
When Mom and Dad were out last week, they brought HUCKLEBERRIES!!! So, of course, we had to make ice cream! Man, was it good! It still is. This time we bought some Cadburry and Dove dark chocolate bars and shaved it into the ice cream before we put it in the freezer. It's certainly a rival of Graeter's black raspberry chip and would probably win if put to a contest because of the novelty of the huckleberries. It is fabulous. we only made half a batch but it turned out to be the perfect amount for our ice cream maker. Good thing this is supposed to be the year of discipline for me or it would be gone already!
I was looking through our boxes in our bonus room to clean out one of the closets. I ran across a bunch of stuff and this is one of the things I found! Man, I miss Hailey! This picture was taken at our house(my parents house that is)in Spokane, in the dining room. It's dated 2-11-'97, but that camera is pre-craig so the date may or may not have been correct. Taylor and I decided it was absolutely blog worthy!
Here are some pix of our trip to Charleston. We went on a carriage ride and walked along the Battery and we went out to Fort Sumpter. We also shopped the "Old City Market" and on Saturday we went to Patriot's Point and toured all the boats and airplanes. It was so fun, but next time we want to go when it's warm enough to go to the beach! Who wants to come with us????
