Egg-static about Easter!

Hello? Mom, Easter was SO last week!
I stink at this whole blog thing so just plan on checking for my updates weeks after any event.

Baby Jack just turned six months old this past Sunday the 19th. My baby boy is growing up so fast I can hardly stand it!

A few days before Easter, Mommy and Jana got the brilliant idea to have a tea party in Janalyn's room. So, we made a cake from scratch.....a CARROT CAKE!!! ...And we made little tea sandwhiches and a fruit and a veggie platter and had a JOLLY GOOD TIME!

Janalyn and Jack had fun dying Easter Eggies this year. Janalyn had a blast sticking stickers on each one while Jack just enjoyed sucking on the eggs. EEWWW!!!

Our pretty girl with her prized eggs, just before Uncle Scotty peeled and deviled them! You can see him standing by....

I've learned that it's pretty much impossible to get a picture of both kids smiling at the camera. And NO, not even jumping around and acting like a complete idiot helps one bit! Janalyn just looks at you like you're crazy, see? Jack liked it.

Happy Spring!
The forcast says it's going to be 102 degrees tomorrow. Where in the heck did spring go!?

When you wish upon a star...

...your dreams come true...

We're BAAACK!!! Back from our FABULOUS vacation to sunny Florida! We had so much fun taking the kids to Disney World. Janalyn's favorite rides were the Dumbo ride and the 'dolly ride' AKA It's a Small World. We ran our legs off and dropped into bed each night, but it was a vacation well spent. And a memory we'll never forget.

Janalyn's first roller coaster in Mickey's Toon Town!

Janalyn had so much fun splashing around in Ariel's grotto, she'd worked up an appetite; we had to get some ice cream afterwards. Yum!

Dinner in Germany at Epcot.Princess Janalyn turns 3!

We gave Janalyn a small birthday party at the park before we left on our trip. The night before her birthday Mimi, Grampy and Auntie threw her a really fun party with Tinkerbell party hats, lots of fun presents and a 'perfect princess' cake that even had Princess Janalyn's picture on it! We spent Janalyn's actual birthday at the Magic Kingdom. Look how happy she looked!

Fun in the Sun!

Dad, John and I went on a canoe trip down the Florida swamp. We spotted 41 alligators total. It was the BEST!

We're so grateful for the way Mom, Dad and Hilary went out of their way to make everything so special. Thanks guys for making our vacation so memorable!
