Clever, no?! Um, no.

  The other day, when we were hiding Easter eggs before bed, the kids put their Easter baskets on as hats.  I thought they looked terribly adorable and quickly insisted they leave them on for a bit so I could grab my camera and take a quick photo or two.   More like 10.

My mind was already thinking ahead to an upcoming Easter post that I could use these in, it was going to be so cute and clever, no?!

  Ummmmmm, NO.

  Didn’t work AT ALL.

4 tired kids + 4 fuzzy chicky basket hats =  CHAOS

Avery sat like this for several minutes, silently contemplating life from below the rim of her “hat”.

Letting it go, and moving on…..

In other news, Spring is officially here.  Want to know how I know?

  ‘Cause my kiddos feet are looking like this every time they knock on the back door to be let in.

  Which is why they stop here, in the laundry room, to wash hands AND feet, before setting foot in mom’s clean house.

  Good job, buddy!050

Oh, and faces too. Did you know……Snot + Sand = Smud?

   Springs arrival also means we can have snack time outside each afternoon, and do homework on a blanket in the yard.  LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

  Tomorrow I am doing a post on an Easter tradition of ours, making “Resurrection Cookies”.  Come back and check it out, they are really neat!

P.S.  Guess who started walking today, just a few days after he turned 8 months?  This may not be uncommon at your house, but at our house, babies don’t start doing this for a few more months and do not walk until they are a year.  (Or if you are Destiny, don’t walk until 18 months old)

Pax grabbed onto this Postal cart and off he went through the kitchen.

Then he fell down twice and wouldn’t have anything do with it after that.

Good! That was a close one. 

Oh, wait, I meant awwww, poor baby!

  1. Cute pictures and post. Oh my Mr. Pax I think you are about the youngest baby I have ever seen walk!!! WOW BIG accomplishments little man!!!! Miss Meadow will be very happy to sit up and watch you next Sunday LOL!!! Toooo Cute!!

  2. Walking?! At EIGHT months?!!! What is Paxton thinking? He’s supposed to be a squishy little baby for months and months yet….not a walking toddler!

    • That’s what I said! For my last baby, he sure doesn’t want to be one. The good news is he hasn’t done it again after falling down twice and bawling his eyes out. Phew! That was a close one…. 🙂
