Cute as a...bug?

Perhaps a ladybug?

Spring is HERE!

As usual, I'm playing catch-up on my blogging. After the 13.5 inches of snow - that melted in about 24 hrs - we had five days of 75+ degree weather, so we were enjoying it to the full extent! (Except for the days the kids had the stomach flu-eeww!)

We only have about 6 scrawny branches left on our tree because we cut it WAY back last summer as it was growing into the power-lines.

More Snow

April snow showers brought 13.5 inches of fun in 24hrs last Monday/Tuesday... The next day we were up in the 60's and had 73 degrees yesterday. Are there more than 4-seasons?

Here's a snapshot of storytime (minus the little squirrel) at the Gibbons' house.

One-Year Check-Up

Jessie had her one-year check-up on Wednesday - everything was great!
Here's how she measured up:

19 lbs., 4 oz. (19th %tile)
29.75 inches long (70th %tile)
Head size: 46 cm (75th %tile)

These are a sample of pictures Jason took of the kids on Easter....not a single one in the bunch with everyone looking at the camera and smiling! But still cute, I think! :-)

Emmett's measurements at one-year-old:

25 lbs., 5.5 oz. (97th %tile)
33.5 inches long (95th %tile)
Head size: don't know, but I know it was/is A LOT bigger than Jessie's and had almost as much hair!

Gracie's measurements at one-year-old:

19 lbs., 10 oz. (25th %tile)
30.5 inches long (90th %tile)

Happy Easter!

It was a little colder this Easter... upper 30's maybe. The kid's had a blast and of course were awake and looking out the windows for eggs by 6 a.m. The bunny was able to sneak out while some cartoons were on, but we think Gracie was a little suspicious. Should a bunny really have to be up and at 'em before daylight...?

Who's going to get there first?

Okay, where is it? Jessie found it...

Did I mention it was really cold out? Thanks for letting me post this, Honey.

We might have to get the kid's bigger baskets... or use fewer eggs... nah.

Ahh, sugar time. Happy Easter, everbody.
