Easter time!

This past weekend was Easter and it was a beautiful weekend. The weather was warm and sunny, different from the flurries and chill we are feeling right now:/ On Saturday morning we had the New Hope Eggnormous hunt that I signed up to help with. So G and I decided to take advantage of the nice weather and run/walk to the church to help before the hunt began. It was humid out so my hair was huge by the time we got there and G complained of being "so sweaty". What does she know about being sweaty:) Luke and Ace K showed up a little later before the hunt began. It was so nice to see all happy kids excited to get hunting. I took G and Luke took Ace to their age areas. Luke said Ace was only after an "urnge egg" (Orange egg). He got it and then was done so Luke had to help point out eggs to go get. G on the other hand told me she was ready to go home right as the horn blew. She wouldn't go out alone so I grabbed her hand and helped her go get a few. She was done before it started! Lucky girl Chloe won a random prize and one of the grand prizes, a pogo stick! She was completely unfazed by it. We ran to Salina afterwards to Old Navy and a bike shop. We are looking into getting some new road bikes so we can get out and do something active together. Bikes are so expensive! Yikes! We didn't find anything that jumped out at us but at least have an idea where to start.
   Sunday was a beautiful Easter. We went to the service at church. They did a drama play that was so perfect for where I am in life. It really hit home with me and made me shed a few tears. G was really into it as well and still asks questions about it. We got Nana B after church and headed over to moms for lunch afterwards. The lunch was the usual, amazing! We did a hunt for the kids after we ate and they loaded up on sugar! It was a great day, but can't expect any less for celebrating the day Jesus is risen!

We planted "magic jelly beans" that came in the "mail" and they bloomed lollies on Easter! The kids totally believed it:)

Posing by their surprise lollies:)

We had to borrow Nana's car since my starter went out and Ace loved how the seat slid around as we turned the corners! (Yes he was buckled in!)

Christmas and Beyond!

So it is the middle of January and I still haven't posted about Christmas...So here it is. The pictures seem to be more fun for me to post and they are easier than writing a whole long story:)
Kiddo update:
Ace-He is almost completely potty-trained but we still are working on getting him through the night. He is talking sooo much! He is a very funny little guy. "Wangampo...Anai" He learned this from Pukeahontous (Pocahontas) and says it quite often. It means Hello...Goodbye. He has really been into Disney movies lately and loves to "snuggle with banket and have snack" while we watch them. I am soaking up all this because before you know it that little guy will be in school:( He had a Pre-school screening last week (I think we are still going to wait until 2014 to send him though) and the ladies were so impressed! He had a vision test, hearing and they watched how he played with toys. I am loving being the mama of this little guy.
Gentry-She has been working on tying shoes. She does a pretty good job but gets frustrated fast. So we do it just a few minutes a day so she doesn't get too upset about it.  She also had been really into spelling out words. So she will say how do you spell "Megan"? (This is what she asks to be called at home...not sure why) and I will say "Okay lets sound it out" and she smiles and goes forth with figuring it out. She is just a little genius in my opinion.! She is like a sweet tart...such a sweet little gal but has a kick of sassyness that comes:) Love her!

Double trouble
