The Boy has made friends with some of the kids from the play he is in, so we had them and their parents over for dinner and to dye Easter eggs. It was a lot of fun, and the boy really enjoyed having company over for him.Our finished eggs, and sister being a good egg and watching!

One of my favorite things about spring in the PNW is all of the cherry blossoms. They are so pretty and delicate looking. I love the color, the fluffiness of them, the way the petals fall off in the wind like a cotton candy shower....EVERYTHING! I wish they lasted longer, but the fact that they don't is part of what makes them so special.

My grandparents are in town, and staying with us. It's so fun to see the kids interacting with them. The boy just LOVES Grandpa, while baby girl is quite taken with Grandma. These are two of my most favorite people, and I love having them here. I have learned a lot about them that I never knew before, just listening to their stories of their lives. I love that my kids know them and get to spend time with them.

Baby girl is still a thumb sucker. I think it is adorable. She always sucks her right thumb, and she is so cute about it, she hooks her other fingers over her nose and she can talk and smile around it. She seems to lately only do it when she is tired, so I think she might be outgrowing it. It is a super cute little habit she has.

The boy was dancing with his shadow, and he kept telling it "red light" and "green light." It was pretty hilarious. Speaking of hilarious, here are some funny things he has said lately.
*Eating a tomato he said "This pretty much rocks my whole mouth."
*After church he was singing "Christ the Lord has risen today, a-a-a-a-lle-lu-u-ia. In a one horse open sleigh, a-a-a-a-lle-lu-u-ia." LoL!!
*Daddy told him to quit being silly and eat his meal. He said "This is not a meal..it's a vacation!"
* "Mom you're not pretty, you're just a mom."
* I coughed and he said "say excuse me" I asked why and he said "Your mouth tooted."
* I was super sick on Tues, and I went in to take a nap, when I came out he kept calling me "Mama bear." Finally I asked why he was calling me that and he said "Because you were snoring like a big bear."
* "When Santa Claus brings me something....I KEEP it!"
* "Ow!" Mom "What's the matter?" Boy "I just fell on my spleen."
* He was lying in my lap with his head on my stomach and said "What a comfy pillow." After a few minutes, he moved his head several inches north and said "Oh, a bigger pillow!"
* Mommy "You are my knight in shining armor." Boy "No, I'm just a kid... in pajamas!"
*"Mom, can you tell me another story?" "No I just told you one." "I forgot it...it's gone out of my head."
*When I asked him what he learned in preschool, "When I get bigger my belly will grow... and my wiener."
*"I'm using my xray vision to see the milk in your boobies."
*Me"I don't negotiate with terrorists." Boy "Yeah we don't groceries state with carrots."
* When I gave him a hug, he said "Don't squeeze too tight, all my juice will run out and I'll have no energy drinks left."

The boy is in our local high school's production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." They were learning the dance to "Go go Joseph" and he was quite excited. I think he is the only one who gave 100% up there...too bad he's not *exactly* doing the dance the way they were teaching it! There is something to be said for enthusiasm though. He'll get it, I'm sure. And, if he doesn't, then he will still be the cutest one up there!! (sorry it's not great quality, it was taken with my cell phone!)

Grandpa Bob and Grandma Bob have been staying with us for a few day while they are in town. The boy is quite enamored with his Grandpa, and baby girl eventually warmed up (she is SUCH a Momma's girl!) We were sad to see them leave, but we enjoyed visiting with them. I learned a lot about them that I never knew before, just listening to their stories of their lives. I love that my kids know them and get to spend time with them.

The boy loves to hold his bunny and let it jump around him. We had to have a little talk about being gentle, but since then he is so incredibly soft with it. He is such a sweet boy, and a joy to have in our home!

One of the boy's favorite past times is going to the pet store to look around. Today they were cleaning out the snake terrariums and there was a snake skin that had been shed. The employee told the boy he could have it if he wanted it...which much to my chagrin he did. The boy has been talking non stop about corn snakes lately. I don't know where he got his information, but he says "Corn snakes are soft and they tickle you and they want to climb all over you. Mean snakes want to eat you. "

Brother had a powdered donut sitting on the countertop. When he came out from getting him dressed, we found that SOMEONE had stolen it. I'm not sure who it could have been. There has been no ransom note. There is really nothing to go on.
