Happy Easter!

Happy Belated Easter everyone!  He is risen, risen indeed!

We started off our Easter weekend by going to a local college baseball game.  This was a first for Bubs, so I had him decked out in a baseball hat, shirt, and ..................

...shoes.  : )

After we got back from the game, Halie and I decorated our Easter cake.  I don't consider myself a cake decorator....at all, but we sure had fun throwin' this together.  In case you can't tell, it's bunnies and eggs in grass with ducks on a pond.    : )

Later that evening we colored our eggs.  Halie had a lot more patience for it this year and seemed to really enjoy it.

Robert and I experimented with using rubber bands to make designs.

This one of mine I called "The Sunset Egg." 

This was Halie's last one and she decided to
soak it in every color available, 9 in all.  : )

This one wasn't intentional but turned out kinda cool. The little cracks looked like lightning bolts to me.

Easter baskets all ready and waiting for them.

Unfortunately, Easter Sunday was a rainy day and we didn't get to take any pictures outside in nice light with pretty greenery.  So, we did the best we could.

Burl was cracking up about something!  Notice his pink little cheeks?
 He got his first sunburn at the baseball game.

After church and a nice ham dinner Halie got to do her Easter egg hunt.  It was still raining so we couldn't do it outside.  : (  But....she still had lots of fun and that's what counts.

This picture has nothing to do with Easter, it's just Springy and pretty and I thought I'd share it with you. 

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter, too, celebrating our risen Savior!

Happy Birthday Robert!

This year I decided not to get Robert a present for his 28th birthday.  Sounds kind of mean and thoughtless doesn't it?  Hear me out though.  He's the kind of guy that just couldn't care less about gifts.  Don't get me wrong, he's grateful if he does get one, but if he doesn't it's truly no big deal.  (Whereas with me, I might say it's not a big deal, but really it is and I'll harbor bitterness and anger for years if you don't get me one.  Ok, not really, but they do mean more to me than to him.)  So, I decided that since there really wasn't anything he wanted for his birthday that I would use that money in a different way.  Instead of buying a gift, I used the money to hire a babysitter for the evening and his gift was a date night with me, with no kids.  We went out to eat, got ice cream, went bowling, and went to Walmart.  Seriously, we went to Walmart on our hot date, lol!  We had fun being together and enjoying some time alone.  I didn't take the camera though, so no pictures of any of that.  That was on Friday evening before his birthday (on Tues).

Then on Sunday, while he was taking a nap, Halie and I made his birthday cake.  When we were at the store the week before, I let her pick out the cake mix, frosting, and decorations.  She chose a chocolate cake, vanilla frosting, sprinkles, and "Happy Birthday" candles. 
She helped me with a good bit of the baking part and did all of the sprinkles and candles herself. 

We all enjoyed a piece of it when he woke up. 

Don't you think she did a great job?

On Tuesday, his actual birthday, the kids and I met him in town after he got off work, and took him out to eat at IHOP.  He got an email from them for a free birthday dinner, and kids eat free during April, so we enjoyed a good meal on the cheap.  

Halie made him a cute card.

Happy Birthday Sweetheart!  I love you with all my heart!

Picture Happy Post

For some reason  I haven't had the camera out much lately for pictures of the kids.  But this weekend we took advantage of the warm weather and sunshine and spent some time outside so I got some shots of the kiddos.

These first two are from Sunday morning, this outfit is courtesy of Meemaw and Papaw Cantrell.  She looked so country and cute.

Enjoying the sun - Burl (7 months exactly)

A boy and his dog  : )

 Gretchy is gettin' old, but still just as sweet as ever.

The kids love her and she loves them.

She's always trying to sneak in some licks.

I hadn't had a picture with my lil' man in a long time.

He loves to touch my face, he's so sweet.

Bath time!

So fun to splash!

Burl's Room

If you'd like to see what Burl's room looks like, I did a post about it on my other blog.  You can see it here, Where Lil' Man Hangs His Spurs.
