Sing Songs, Bring Sweets

‘Tis the season for egg hunts!

We had a weekend of springtime fun!

First, a trip to Barnes and Noble on Saturday for storytime.  We didn’t stay long enough to hear the story, however…climbing around all over the store made them tired and grouchy, I guess!  It’s harder to get pics of Jed since I’m either holding him or pushing him in the stroller most of the time.

In the afternoon, we went to the library Easter party for an egg hunt.  It was extremely crowded, but the kids had fun!  Eliza gets so excited when she finds chocolate in an egg.  She doesn’t understand why she can’t eat all the candy at once.

Sunday was another egg hunt at church, which was also lots of fun!

Then, we came home to play and rest!

Being silly at the library!


Fresh air!

After a fun and inspiring MOPS meeting this morning, we enjoyed several hours of outside playtime.  How do parents in very cold climates keep their toddlers entertained?  I don’t envy them!

On an unrelated note–

It’s no secret that I’ve never been overly fond of cooking, but lately I’ve found it completely discouraging and dreadful.  I haven’t been able to articulate why until I read this brilliant little essay.  THIS LADY GETS ME!!

You’ve just gotta read it:

10 Reasons Why Dinner Time is Actually the Worst

He’s one!

A big, huge thank you to those who celebrated Jed’s birthday with us (physically and/or in spirit).  He loves his people so much!  We didn’t let the gloomy weather dampen our jolly mood.  We have spectacular friends and family, I must say :-)

And here’s some video of Jed’s birthday followed by some cute Eliza stuff:


Party pics are coming tomorrow!

We had a splendid time celebrating Jed’s first birthday, but I have lots of pics to sort through.  Stay tuned!

A day at the museum.

As usual, the kids loved the Science and History Museum!  We met up with several friends to make it even more fun!

Then we headed home to play in the backyard, which we could do since it (finally) wasn’t raining!  Hooray!




Having the the kids so close together in age certainly isn’t easy, but sometimes a moment occurs in which I’m instantly reminded that it’s sublime.  Please enjoy the cutest video ever:

Sorry, no pics tonight!

Too many chores!  Check back tomorrow :-)

Hanging with friends!

A fun way to spend St. Patrick’s Day!  Also, Jed is in love with Presley:

So much fun!

Happy babies!

At least we had one day of nice weather before the gloominess set in!

And how do you entertain a very active toddler when it’s too rainy to go outside?  You watch the finale of William Tell Overture repeatedly, of course!


Rough night.

Jed was awake from 12:30-3:00 with a very painful ear infection last night, so I’m (unsurprisingly) way too tired to post pics.  We went to the doctor today, so hopefully the medicine will ensure that we all sleep better tonight!
