Happy Easter!

We decided to get the girls bikes this year for Easter and took them the Friday before to get them so they would have the whole nice weekend to play.
They are pink.
They have tassles.
They have bells.
They have a carriage on the front where you can put a doll.
My girls are in absolute heaven.
And yes, it is very late in Lauren's life to just be getting a bike.  But since she didn't learn to ride a trike until the END of last summer, we figured we would just take one thing at a time.

The Easter Bunny came on Sunday morning and left eggs all over the place - even up in the ceiling fan.
Silly bunny.

Lo was still looking for and gathering eggs.
Mya couldn't help herself - she had to stop and start shovelling in the chocolate.
Can't say I blame her.

Jane Pants got herself a new dolly.  As you can see, she loves it!

And here my beauties are in their Sunday best!
I'm very proud of the 3 smiles I managed to get.
This is my favorite - Mya had this super dramatic posing moment where she decided to gently stroke Jane's face and close her eyes with this look of contentment.
I could not stop laughing.
Happy Easter 2012!
I know, you may have been confused about the year because on a bunch of the pictures I used the "1960's" effect in Picasa.
Don't worry, you were not transpoted back in time via my blog.
I wish!

The Twins' Birthday

I'm having a lovely time playing with Picasa's new editing features.
Super fun!
Anyway, Trevor & Scott's birthdays was April 5th.
It was a strange day with mixed emotions, but I feel I celebrated it exactly how I needed to.
We started out the day by getting some balloons and going to Trevor's grave to send them to him.

 We had to keep a couple for ourselves {aka, for mom's sanity}.

 Lo & Mya made him cards and we left some flowers.
There isn't a head stone yet, which sucks, but we are just waiting our turn after a long winter of frozen ground.

I don't have any pictures of the rest of the day, but we met up with my whole, huge family at Leatherby's to celebrate with Scott.
There were many fries and Tracy's Peanut Butter Cups consumed, and lots of smiles and laughs.
It was a great day.
Happy birthday, TremnenScott!!!
