Chill has been working like crazy lately and had to work on Easter so we decided to do Easter a few days early when he had his day off.  We scrambled last Monday night to pull everything together so we could celebrate on Tuesday and we did it. We died eggs Monday night which was so fun.  I think Easter is one of Carson's favorites.  He has talked about the Easter bunny quite frequently since last year so when it was FINALLY time for the Easter Bunny to visit our house, he was so excited.  He ran around the house finding eggs and then found his and Bailey's baskets.  He was pretty happy with everything he got.  I love that he gets excited at the littlest things.  He is at such a fun age.  As usual Bailey was just happy to be there.

Check out Bailey's face in the next two pictures...she LOVES the camera!

Chill was supposed to be running to the store for me and this is where I found bed!!

On Easter morning the kids and I went to church as usual.  After we were able to have dinner at my parents house. I sure love Easter dinner... yum!  I don't know if you were all lucky enough to have Spiderman at your Easter dinner...we sure were!  Carson LIVES in this costume.  After dinner we Skyped with Nat and her family.  We sure miss them so much and are so excited to visit them next month in Florida.  It just can't come quick enough.  We had another little celebration and my parents were sweet and of course hid some eggs and gifts for the kids.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Yes in the middle of all the Easter fun, I had a birthday.  I of course love birthdays (especially my own)!  Chill worked all day and evening so he wasn't able to make the day all about me ha ha!  Thankfully my mom came through for me.  We spent the day with her dying easter eggs, lunch from Kneaders, talking and I got to go by myself and do a little shopping.  We ended the day with dinner at Texas Roadhouse, presents, and Strawberry Pie!  The best part about it all was Carson opened all my presents for me, it was great.  My favorite line of the night..."Ahh Wranglers!" after Carson opened a pair of jeans. (No I didn't not get a pair of wranglers!)  I told Chill that because his schedule is so crazy this week, I am accepting gifts through next week. 

1st Trip to the Dentist

I decided it was time to take Carson to the dentist.  We have been talking about it for the past few months and he finally decided it was okay to go.  I found a "Superhero" dentist in Salt Lake ( Burg Pediatric Dentistry which I would highly recommend to anyone) and after that Carson was sold.  Tangled was playing in the waiting room when we got there which he thought was so cool  He was a little timid when they took us back to the room, but it only took a few minutes and he was just fine.  He let the girl take xrays, clean his teeth, and do floride.  She talked him into all those things by giving him Spiderman stickers.  He got to watch Megamind while he got his teeth cleaned and that made him happy.  After the dentist checked him out and gave him the okay Carson got to pick out some stickers and prizes.  He thought it was great.  He also got a superhero cape because he is a new patient.  I always worried a little about our first trip to the dentist, but boy was that a breeze!

8 Months Old

She just keeps growing and growing.  As always Bailey is just our angel baby.  She is so cute and fun to watch.  She loves to interact with Carson and wants to be on the move all the time.  She is not crawling yet...not even inching her way to things.  She does roll and can get around that way.  I am trying to enjoy the last little bit of limited mobility while I can because we all know after that things get a little more difficult.  I didn't have to do much baby proofing when Carson started crawling, but I'm afraid it is going to be a different story with Bailey.  I guess we will see!

Happy Birthday Spiderman!

It is hard to believe but our little buddy is 3 Years Old. I still can't wrap my head around it. I was looking at pictures the other day of when he was born and it really doesn't seem like that long ago.  He has just gotten so big.  Okay well not really... he still only weighs 28 lbs and is 3 feet tall.  He has been such a good boy and so much fun.  He amazes us by the things he says and is learning and keeps us laughing daily.  A few days before his birthday he got on a Spiderman kick and wanted EVERYTHING Spiderman.  As a mom you feel that you really have to come through for your kids and make their birthday special and just what they want.  Thank heavens for Amazons cheap overnight shipping!  Carson woke up so happy on his birthday and was so excited that he was 3.  Before his birthday he told me he just wanted to be 2, but on his birthday he let us know he was finally 3!  We had a great, but very busy few days while we celebrated.

We celebrated at home that morning. Carson and I went Burger King to get some breakfast and then we had a quick little party before Chill had to go to work.  The present of the day was of course the Spiderman costume which he wore for 3 days in a row!  I of course did what I said I would not do...I let him wear it out in public and to the zoo of all places.  He was the happiest boy alive so I think it was worth it.  It was a perfect day for the zoo.  The weather was FINALLY so nice!

We had a little party at my parents house to keep the celebration going.  We ate Chinese food at Carson's request, he opened presents, and we had cake and ice cream. 

I think everyone is completely worn least that's how it appears!

The following day we had a party with Chill's parents and some of our friends.  It was so fun to see everyone and spend time catching up.  Carson loved all the attention he got with his costume!

 After the our friends left, we had a mini party with Chill's parents so Carson could open his presents from them.  The present of the night was a Spiderman bike (which I didn't get a picture of).  He was so excited.  He is still learning how to ride it, but he loves it!
