We all got a good laugh out of Gates sleeping hanging off the side of the bed but this tops that.  When Chris and I went in to check on Gates he wasn’t in bed, not unusual, we find him sleeping on the floor a lot, but when I didn’t see him on the floor my heart started racing.  “Where’s Gates!?”  He had climbed up on to his dresser, put two pairs of swim trunks on over his PJ’s, had his sunglasses around his neck and was sleeping.

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

John 3:16

I hope every one had a wonderful Easter!  We definitely did.  We had  an Easter egg hunt with all the neighbors on Saturday, which was adorable.  Then enjoyed a cul-de-sac cook out afterwards. 

These are some of Gates’ buddies in the neighborhood that he spends a lot of time playing with and I am sure will get into lots of trouble with in the future.

We enjoyed Easter service at our church and then had family over to our house for a yummy lunch.  We did another Easter egg hunt in our backyard and they we were officially worn out.

Bath Time

One of my best friends visited a couple weekends ago and brought her precious son Hudson to play.  We had a baby bath party and it was so cute.

Thing 1 and Thing 2 Birthday Bash!

Jack and Teddy’s 1st birthday was a blast!  I took a lot of pictures so I am going to start with just the basics; decorations and attire.

On the table with all the Dr. Seuss books are the monthly pictures of the boys.


Birthday presents in their birthday wagon.


Cakes and cupcakes I made myself.
