Happy Easter!

The alternate title for this post is “Oops. Our kids are still too young and uncoordinated to dye Easter eggs.”  Oh well. It was very messy, but still fun. I knew it wasn’t going to go too well when Callie immediately shouted ‘JUICE!!!!!’ and poured the orange dye out all over the ground.

I think Lila Blue is looking a bit Easter egg-ish lately. : )
So the dying wasn’t perfect, but this morning Callie and I baked some Easter Cupcakes to bring to Grandma’s tomorrow. And I couldn’t believe how much she ‘gets’ baking all of the sudden. We’ve made probably about 30 batches of cupcakes in her 18 months of life and things really clicked today for the first time. She helped me stir and helped me count the tablespoons. She even helped put the Peanut M&M’s on top. This was also the first time she was attentive throughout the ENTIRE process. It makes me so excited for all the future activities we’ll do together.
Alright, so I’m a bit cruel. I put her up on the table to pose with the cupcakes, then told her not to touch them. Not cool, Mom. Not cool.

katelyn & miles – engaged!

Oh I just LOVE katelyn and miles!!! They’re so great and happy and LAUGH-y! And I think Katelyn said at the end of our session, “We like you Katie Day, We’ve got good chemistry.” That’s right. The three of us have good chemistry. Awesome. Can’t wait for their May wedding! It’s SO soon now!!

They are so cute!! We can’t wait to hang with all three of you next month! :) These pictures are beautiful and fun, as always Katie!

Callie at the Farm

I’m the luckiest girl in the world because I get to have a playdate once a week with Bre & Jude (Callie’s hot boyfriend). (Can you call a 2-year-old hot? oh well…) Bre had the genius idea of going to Rutledge Wilson farm for a picnic. We’re living it up these final days before Little Miss Lila Blue comes into the world (I can’t wait to meet her!!) This has got to be one of the best free things to do with kids in the Springfield area. So many animals and activities. It’s a blast! If you live in the area and know of more things to do with little ones, please tell me in the comments below!

Fish Fry & Fellowship

I’ve decided I’m no longer going to wait for special occasions to throw a soiree. From now on, any excuse to throw a party and I’m taking it. Jared caught some fish, so boom. It’s party time. We are very blessed to have such an amazing church full of great young couples. Love these guys.The official color scheme of this party was “oh-this-is-a-color-and-laying-around-my-house”.

Callie kept sneaking baked beans from off the table and spoon-feeding them to Addie. We don’t think Addie even liked them that much, she’s just really go-with-the-flow.

That’s where the photos stopped. What happened next was a fiercely competitive wiffle ball game full of blood, sweat, and tears. I can’t really remember who won the game. I think it was my team. I’m not sure. I think I lost track…..Ok. we lost DANGIT. By one friggin point.

The next time Addie won’t eat something, I’ll have Callie come feed her. Addie says no to me, but Callie is hard to resist.
