Easter 2010

We had a wonderful Easter weekend up in Chico. It was so much fun visiting with family and celebrating the holiday with them. Alex and Amelia had a blast with their cousins and slept very well while we were up there! As my cousin's husband said, "Chico is hard on little kids!" Now that we are home Alex is bored and wants to know where all the people are to play with! Amelia had so much fun running around after the boys too and cousin Jack is so sweet with her.

We stayed with my cousin Ann who is always so welcoming and accommodating to us. Amelia loved swimming in her spa and even learned how to blow bubbles. She looked pretty cute in her cousin's goggles.

On Easter Sunday mass amounts of sugar were consumed by everyone. My diet went out the window as I went into a sugar coma. Amelia was introduced to Peeps and loved them! She probably ate half a box yesterday.

My cousin had a great Easter egg hunt for all the kids and it was so much fun to watch all of them out hunting for eggs, despite it being so cold out!

Despite the cold and rainy weather we got some great family photos which is always a bonus! However as you can see in the photo below, Amelia refused to let go of the Peeps!

We traveled home yesterday and today the kids are home with Paul and I. Tomorrow things will be back to normal for everyone, including all this candy getting out of this house! I have no willpower against jelly beans and chocolate!

Spring is here

With all the beautiful spring weather lately I haven't had much time to blog but have lots of new photos to share.

Amelia has been steadily gaining lots of new words she can say and is quite the chatterbox lately. She also is developing into quite the fashionista just like her Mommy. She loves wearing my high heel sandals and one day put on quite the fashion show.

Daddy is going to be in trouble with both of us shopping.....uh oh.

Alex got a big boy bike, I can hardly believe that he is big enough to be on a bike with training wheels. It is a Spiderman bike so he is all decked out with his Spiderman helmet and bike. He is slowly adjusting to a big boy bike but is doing well. I have no photos of him on the bike because I have to be ready at any moment to push him or help him steer but soon I will have some photos.
Last weekend after a bike ride Alex decided he was really hot and kept begging me to go in the pool. I told him fine since I assumed he would put one toe in and change his mind, but no - he went swimming. Upon seeing him in the pool Amelia decided she needed in as well so both my kids went swimming that day for about 10 minutes. Alex has been taking swim lessons and got a little too brave at one point, jumping out into the middle of the pool and got scared. So guess who else ended up going in the pool that day? Yep, Mommy did with all her clothes.

The other big news is that Alex is all registered for kindergarten. It is hard to believe that this fall he will be attending school. What happened to my baby? We have been working on his letters and writing his name, but he is doing so well. I know he is ready for school but don't think I am ready for my baby to be so grown up.

Well more photos to come soon, we are excited for our Easter celebration this weekend. The kids will be darling with their Easter egg hunt and will have fun with all their cousins.
