The Last Few Days

It has been so busy around here lately. We had a great Easter. We spent the weekend with family, decorating eggs and doing Easter egg hunts. I really wanted to make sure the girls knew that Easter was WAY more than eggs and bunnies so we talked about Jesus a ton. It's kind of hard explaining Jesus' death and resurrection to a 2 and 3 year old but I tried. :) Here are a few pictures...
 The girls loved being able to decorate eggs

 At Grandma and Grandpa's house for an egg hunt...all the grand kids but baby Joshua

 Finding eggs at our house Sunday afternoon

 All the girls did really really well

Then Monday, the girls and I had a cleaning cleaning cleaning day. They both wanted to help so I gave them little projects around the house. Natalie really loved helping me clean. I gave her a baby wipe and she went to town cleaning the cabinets. I will definitely have her do that again...they look great! :)

 Today was dollar Tuesday at Baskin Robbins so we took the girls out for ice cream. Heidi took her nap today so I let her get her ice cream on a cone. Nat, on the other hand, didn't take her nap and had a complete melt down when she found out she didn't get a cone. Thankfully I told her at home before we left for 31 Flavors. :) Once we got there she was happy just to get ice cream in a cup! Heidi made a huge mess with her cone but she really loved it.
 The picture on the right is Heidi doing her new frowning face. She does it to make you laugh...it really is funny. She will frown at you and then give you a big smile and then frown and then smile...all in a matter of seconds. It is so hard not to laugh!! Such a cute kid!

I've also been baking cupcakes pretty much every other day. I'm trying to perfect my recipes. Thankfully I have a ton of people to give my cupcakes away to or I'd be a hundred pounds heavier!! :) Right now I have banana cupcakes in the oven.  I'll post pictures of those later!

It has been a little busy for you lately, but it was fun coloring eggs with the kids and watching them find them all in the yard. 31 was a lot of fun too. Good thing they had a lot of napkins!! I know you posted the Coconut Lime Cupcake as the best cupcake ever, but you Banana Nut Cupcakes are the BEST EVER! Love you. Daddy
