Our Easter Week 2016

Tuesday, March 29, 2016

This was my Grandmother's , sometimes we decorate with it and sometimes we worry it will get broke :)

Making our Easter chicks

Job decided to make a monster with lots of eyes ( little boys :)

Making crayon colored eggs , these were really fun , but its a lot easier to put them in an egg tray which we found out when we were almost done with them .

Making potato stamps , we did so many crafts this year , it kept us busy .

I think the kids enjoyed these the most , I didn't do a very good job of cutting the potato's though but they still had fun.

our jello eggs didn't make it , Job got in the refrigerator and destroyed them , he then came and told me the jello eggs were done , he is in one thing and then another :)

Didn't know what I was going to do about finding the girls Easter dresses then I found out there was a consignment sale that weekend , Saturday was 1/2 price day , I really stocked up on church outfits :) these are for Riley

Leah's dresses , the purple American Girl dress only cost me 2.50 :o

more for Riley

I even found a suit for Job

for Noah

Ready for church on Easter

it was hard to get good pictures that day

Leah is so fast at finding eggs she got the most of them , Job and Riley are going to have to get faster or I need to get more eggs :)

Noah played most of the day til he wore himself out , can't believe he is 5 months old now .

Leah's chick

more dresses for Leah , we were so blessed to have such a wonderful Easter , hope everyone else did to .
                                               Happy Easter !

Birthdays and keeping busy

Saturday, March 12, 2016

We celebrated Leah's 5th birthday , I can't believe our little Leah is 5 it doesn't seem possible , she has been such a blessing , she is so sweet and loving and always smiling and makes me smile and laugh everyday .

she was waiting for Lily so we could start the party , we had her party at my moms house , everything takes place at grandma's house always :)

Job can never wait :)

found these post it note list on Pinterest that you can print out , thought I would try a to do list and a chore chart for the kids .

so glad that spring is here , I am trying to declutter and reorganize and hopefully will be done with spring cleaning soon , you know me I love spending most of my time outdoors when the weather is nice , which is why I like getting spring cleaning over with ASAP .

seen a bookcase on pinterest that I liked , this is just some of it , it actually has a bookcase on each end and then a seat in the middle so the kids can put their shoes underneath , and probably their shoes will never end up there but when its finished I am going to put the kids a poster in the center above the seat .

we just finished reading this for read aloud , I have to admit I shed some tears at the end of this book ok don't laugh I am sensitive sometimes and these kids books can make you cry .

These are some pictures I took of the kids before church last Sunday

Riley is getting so tall .

I love Leah's look in this one , and her and Job holding hands , its so sweet when Job tells Leah he loves her

this was when we got back from church , Job put his hat back on and had chocolate on his face
we have started decorating for Easter , here we are making shaving cream eggs , if you don't know about shaving cream art , check it out on pinterest its really fun for all ages even little ones .

Job can't wait until Noah is big enough to play tractors with him .

a kind family gave Job a brand new suit for Christmas , I took him last Wednesday and had his picture made at Jcpenney  I realized it has been a long time since the kids has had prof. pictures made , they have changed so much that I decided to take one of them each month until they can each get their picture made , I am not buying to many pictures because my brother is going to do outdoor pics for us this year .
