Saturday Easter

We usually have two Easter Celebrations in my family-one at my Dad's house and another with my Mom's side of the family. The weather was starting to get a bit chilly and windy outside before we hid the Easter Eggs', so inside we went for the Easter Egg hunt this year.

Here come Syndey and Lilah all ready for the hunt! 
*side not, these are the outfits the girls got for Easter, thus the mismatching on their parts! hehe They loved the dresses so much they did not want to put their other clothes back on!*

And along comes Micah!

Sydney, I found one Auntie!

Lilah had a secret advantage this year-majority of the eggs were at her level! Yep, there is a benefit to being a Little Person besides being so darn cute!

Mom, look at all this candy inside the eggs!!!

Mmmhmmm, gonna have to figure out a way to eat this while Moms not looking!

Look what I found inside my egg Auntie!

Sydney asking if she can eat her candy!

Jayce is counting his eggs and comparing the number with his brother...

sibling rivalry, even over the number of Easter Eggs!

This is my brother-in-law Jerry catching Esater candy in his mouth! 3 out of 3!

Such a cutie here! Micah posing for the camera!

I know it's waaaay late, but hope everyone had a very happy and fun Easter!

Spring Weather Play

Since the weather has started to warm up this past month, we've taken advantage of Papa's deck and the interesting finds in his back yard! Lilah found this pink and purple car in papa's back yard, sitting all by its lonesome! Mommy had to take some water and a scrub brush to it, but it's practically brand new!

Ok mom, the sun in directly in my eyes! Hurry up and take the photo so I can drive outta here!

On this day, we stopped by the park for some play time.
My cool girl in her new Hello Kitty Shades from God-Mother Teresa!

She wasn't to sure about what this was or if she even wanted to ride this bull-dozer. She would walk back and forth about 5 or 6 times, look at, touch it then walk away. I finally convinced her to get on and she loved it!

I was so excited because she was going to go down the slide and was hoping for a great picture. Instead the slide faces directly to the West and the sun had been hitting the slide for the past 4 hours or so- no condition for sliding! She's pointing to the slide and saying "Mama it's hot!" You can see the "hot" face!

I love spring weather, all the pretty flowers and photo opportunities! I need to get some cute spring photos before the rain washes all the pretty colors away!

Straight Hair

I am sure most of you have already seen these photos, but I thought I would do a mini blog about them. It has been almost 2 years since I had attempted to straighten Lilah's hair.
The first time I was so scared to straighten her hair because I thought it would not go back curly after I did-boy was I wrong! As soon as she started to sweat, as with most achon's, it curled right back up! That straight hair episode only lasted about 30 minutes or so!

This time I wanted to straighten her hair to see how long it really is. When she was taking a bath, her hair was floating in the water! And the water only sat right to her belly button when seated-so you can imagine how long it really was!

She was great while I straightened it-sat and played in my jewelry box the entire time, and I think it took almost as long to straighten her hair as it does to straighten mine! A whole 20 minutes or so! Glad all those who saw the photos before liked them-and I hope you all enjoy them here as well!

She was so ready NOT to take any photos!

I asked her to turn around so I could take a photo of the back of her hair, this is the pose I got instead! 

And this is her hair from the back! Look how long it is!

She looks so much older in these photos-I'm so happy she still has all her curls!
