yukky day

it's a dreary day here...lots of rain. I guess it could be worse. I heard that it's snowing buckets near the cities. I guess I'll take the rain if I have to have it.I think Lydia is getting a tooth. She's been drooling a lot and I think I can feel that sharp little sucker in there. She's also been going through a growth spurt...she's been sleeping all day today and last week she was nursing all the time. I just want to bottle her and keep her this size for a long time, but I know that the playful stage will be here soon and that will be good too.

We had a pretty normal weekend here. We spent Friday evening cleaning up tree branches (from 2 large trees that were cut down), went on our weekly shopping trip on Saturday, church on Sunday and relaxed the rest of the day.

I'm hoping to get some cleaning in this week along with preparing for a stamp class on friday. I bought that Swiffer wetjet mop and I'm hoping it will clean my floors as well as it does when I'm on my hands & knees. I hate mopping the floors.

Have a good week everyone.

3 Months

I know I'm a little biased, but isn't she just the most beautiful baby?

Had an entire night of uninterrupted sleep last night! It would be great if she sleeps through the night every night!! But today was a different story. She gave me a bit of a challenge. She didn't want to be put down. She loved to just be held, looking out, so she can see the world. Needless to say, mommy didn't get much done today and the house was a disaster. How can I resist that face?

We had a great Easter weekend...other than the snow part...I'm sick of that white stuff. Sounds like this week will be nice & sunny.
The easter bunny came and had lots of eggs hidden around the house. Cassidy was so excited to see that the Easter bunny ate all of the lettuce we left out the night before!
We made it to church too. There were all kinds of pretty dresses on all of the little girls. Lydia cried during the service, nothing unusual :) But she did settle down after a while. Cassidy was restless. How are we supposed to concentrate on the sermon with these kids??!!!
After Church we went home and relaxed a little and then went to my parent's for dinner. As always, grandma was up to her usual spoiling. They had eggs hidden in the snow. They were filled with money and as if that wasn't enough, she (I mean Easter bunny) also hid baskets filled with candy & toys! Let me just say it was kinda crazy after the candy was consumed. But they had a fun time which is the most important!

When I was glancing at the thumbnails of my pictures I thought Cassidy was holding a doll in this picture!

Egg hunt

We went to the egg hunt at our church this morning. They had 1200 eggs that they hid in the snow! Some of them were getting covered with snow because it was snowing pretty good, but was warm out. We had a fun time! Cassidy was so mad that she could only get enough eggs to fill her carton because the school age kids still had to hunt after preschoolers. I don't know what I'm going to do with this kid.
I pawned Lydia off on a lady inside the church so I could go out and take some pictures. After 45 minutes I remembered I had brought Lydia and thought I should probably take her back :) At least someone was being a good kid! Only kidding...we just had the 1 episode, so it was overall good.

A coat with some history

This little jacket is borrowed from our friends & babysitters: the Douglas girls (as we call them). Jill's mother actually made this dress 40 years ago (I'm just guessing)out of her husband's old suit. It's a gray wool with pink lining and buttons. It's obviously getting short on Cassidy, but hopefully they'll let us keep it so Lydia can wear it.

I just love this picture of Cassidy even though she was being pretty uncooperative for she is most of the time for pictures.
