Easter... a little late

We had a great long Easter weekend, and obviously I am a little late with my blog entry about it. Oh well. Jarrod did some much needed yard work and we cleaned up inside and had some fun too. On Good Friday, Emily and I dyed Easter eggs. She had a BLAST doing this and woke up that morning asking "Is it time to dye eggs yet Mommy?"

So proud of herself!
The finished product :)

For Easter Sunday, we went to Luke & Kathryn's church in Chandler and then went to their house to eat. We had a great lunch, hamburgers with all the fixins. That's what we had last year, so I guess it's becoming our Easter tradition. Emily and Allison actually had matching dresses...I actually found matching dresses in sizes 6mos and 5! What are the odds of that!

Right now we are really busy with baseball season, so we have lots of girls' nights! Taking 2 kiddos to the games is not much fun for mommy, so I have been a really bad coach's wife this season! Oh well. I am going to really try to update this more often...I'm not off to a very good start! Hope everyone had a great Easter!

Blog newbie

So I finally decided to start a blog. I figure this will be easier than maintaining both the girls' babysites and we can share stories and pics this way. I love reading all my friends' blogs so I guess it can't hurt to share our boring lives with everyone as well. Please bear with me as I learn all the ins and outs of blogging.

Lately our lives have been really busy with Jarrod's baseball season and Emily starting soccer this spring. In the first couple of soccer games, Emily had quite a few melt-downs so I wondered if sports would be her thing. She also takes dance at school, so I am curious to see which route she will take. Anyway, the last soccer game went really well...much different than the first two. She played really well and only cried once because she got knocked down pretty hard. It was a really good game and we are so proud of our little Ladybug! We are thinking about possibly playing t-ball this summer with Green Acres so we got her a pink glove tonight at Academy. What did we ever do without that store here in Tyler?!?! Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend!
