Easter Baskets 2011

Jenny's Basket

Jenny got bubbles, Play-Doh, a chocolate bunny, a Crayola Color Wonder drawing pad and markers, a magnetic tic-tac-toe game, and "The Miracle of Easter" book.

Aiden's Easter Basket

Aiden got bubbles, sidewalk chalk, a Crayola Color Wonder Toy Story 3 drawing notebook and markers, a coloring book with crayons, and a chocolate bunny.

They also both got....

Guinea pigs!!

The one in the first picture is Aiden's, his name is Reeses. The one in the second picture is Jenny's, his name is Ralphie. They are both boys, and we were told that they are about 6 months old.

So far they have been very easy to care for, and Jenny is able to help with a lot of the responsibility. She refills their food and water before going to school, and helps me clean their cage every couple of days. She especially loves giving them treats and getting to hold them. Aiden loves them too, and he is very sweet with them. Everyday he asks to hold them, and he is always telling them that he loves him and he thinks they are cute. Haha!

Happy Easter!

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead," 1 Peter 3:1

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you are all enjoying your day! We sure are!

The Easter Bunny came to our house last night. We have been playing with chalk, bubbles, and markers all day. It is beautiful here too today! So thankful that He is risen and I am saved!!

Guess What?!?

Jenny lost her first tooth!!!

After many weeks of it being lose, it finally came out. The corn on the cob and Rice Krispie treat she ate earlier in the day may have also helped. When she went to bed that night, we put her tooth under her pillow and she went to sleep hoping that the Tooth Fairy would pay her a visit....

She did!

The Tooth Fairy brought her $2, a pack of gum, and Skittles. Jenny was thrilled! She went to school the next morning, and told her teacher and all of her friends about her tooth and what the Tooth Fairy brought her.

Looks like the Tooth Fairy better stock up on goodies, Jenny has another lose tooth that will probably be falling out soon!  =)

*The flash on my camera was a little bright, which is why Jenny is making that weird face in these pictures. Haha.

Miniature Golf

A few nights ago, Jaime and I decided to take the kids to a miniature golf place, Pirates Cove. We went last year too, and the kids enjoyed it, but Aiden mostly ran around like a crazy person the whole time. Honestly, this year was about the same way. Although I do think he enjoyed himself more, and sort of understood what we were there to do.

Last year we didn't even attempt to keep score as it was too difficult to do that and keep up with Aiden. This year, since Jenny is older, we let her keep score for us. She was so excited throughout the whole game because at every hole she would get the most points, so she thought she was winning. When we explained to her that in golf the winner is the one with the lowest score, she was a little dissappointed.

I don't remember what our scores were, but I know that Jaime won and I was a few points behind him. Jenny and Aiden tied, both having a score of 90 points. Oh well, at least they had fun - that's what matters! :)

Spring Pictures of Aiden

Over the weekend, my mom and I decided we were going to try and get a few good pictures of Aiden. I should probably tell you that Aiden was in a horrible mood, wasn't dressed for picture taking, and the whole thing was pretty much a last minute decision. Overall, I think some of the pictures turned out pretty good. We will try again soon!

He really enjoyed playing in the creek in my parents' front yard. I think for a minute he couldn't believe we were actually letting him play in it. Haha! Hopefully I will get some good pictures of him soon. Right now, since he is two, he is so hard to photograph. He doesn't always smile or look at the camera, and he definitely isn't going to be still any longer than a few seconds. Years from now when I am looking back at photos of Aiden, I will always know and remember what a joy he was at this age. Two is a hard age, but it is also a very fun age!

Yellow River Game Ranch

A few days ago, Aiden and I met up with my cousin and her kids to go to Yellow River Game Ranch. We have been a few times before, but Aiden really enjoyed it this time. I brought the stroller with us, but he walked the whole time. He thought all the birds were chickens, and anything with 4 legs was a horse or dog (depending on their size, of course).

Finger Painting Fun!

Remember all that warm weather I mentioned in my last post? Well, it's gone! After the storms we had last night, today is much cooler. It is a beautiful, sunny day - but it sure is chilly! We're hoping it will warm up some this afternoon so that we can go outside and play. But, for now, we have spent our morning inside. To keep Aiden entertained (and under control), we have been finger painting! We haven't tried finger painting in a while, and last time he wasn't crazy about it because of how messy his hands got. This time however, he loved it!

Hopefully the weather will warm up again soon, and we won't have to stay indoors any time soon. But when we do have to stay indoors, at least we'll have something fun to do!!

*a couple of these photos were taken with the Vignette Camera app on my phone.
