I just love spring. It is such a nice time to be outside with the kids and have fun with them. We just got a new hammock and these two little sweeties are what I get to look at while I am relaxing in it.

I hope everyone had a nice St. Patty’s day. We had a fun day and enjoyed seeing all of the things that the leprechaun did as he visited our house.
Last night, Mikayla and I made cookies to have today. As you can see, “make” is a loosely held term. We did take the pre-made cookie and roll the edges in green sugar to dress them up a little bit. First of all, our pancakes were turned green! Then he turned our milk green, too! We also had some green grapes for breakfast to keep the theme going.Mikayla had a snack of celery with green cream cheese. She didn’t really like it, though. I hadn’t thought about the fact that she had never had cream cheese before.The last thing the leprechaun did at our house was to tip-toe on Mikayla’s sandwich, take a bite out of it, and leave a gold chocolate coin behind. Mikayla thought this one was pretty funny.
For dessert, Mikayla made some green pudding in a Zip-loc bag. She had a lot of fun shaking it all over the place.
Here is a picture of Mikayla in her St. Patrick’s Day shirt. I was happy to get a sweet smile (instead of usual cheesy one) even if she wouldn’t look at the camera directly.
Gavin would not stand still for a picture, but you get the idea.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I had submitted a tip to the Parent Hack blog, and they posted it today. It was nothing grand, but I am still pretty excited.

Gavin does not say a lot of words yet. Mainly, he says mama, dada, night night, and bye-bye. He does however have a very cute little babble. He looks at you very seriously and rattles of a sentence of baby babble. It is so fun to listen to.
My youngest sister lives in Utah and has been begging me to post a photo of Gavin’s little language. I have had a hard time capturing him, because he tends to be quiet and just stare at the camera anytime I bring it out. At dinner the other night, I finally captured some of it. So Aunt Lollie, here you go!

After we went to the circus, Mikayla came home and wanted to make an obstacle course for her new Bengal Tiger. This is what she came up with.

Well, sandwiched in all of this gorgeous weather, the state of Georgia had some snow. Well, most of the state of Georgia that is. We happened to live in the one small little area where it didn’t get cold enough to stick to the ground. Mikayla was pretty bummed. We were watching the news and Mikayla kept asking, “Why aren’t we getting any snow?” I was pretty bummed the next morning, when I drove into work and there was about 3-4 inches of snow on the ground.
Mikayla looking out the window at the snow. Here is some proof that we did get some snow.
Well, I felt bad about the snow not sticking to the ground. So I bundled Mikayla up, and let her go outside and splash in the puddles and catch snowflakes in her mouth.

We have had some wonderful weather the past couple of weeks. Jeremy and I have taken the kids to the park a couple of times. We have had so much fun together. Mikayla loves playing on all of the equipment and Gavin just loves being able to run around in a big open space.
Gavin had fun going down the slide. He just had this look of poor joy while going down.
