Happy April Fools Day!

Go Cardinals!


New pictures of Ella's room

We moved her crib in, hung up her quilt, hung some flowers on the wall, hung the Sweet Dreams sign, and put her name letters on one of the shelves


April 3

A little bit of mischief...P&E decided to pull all the wipes out of the wipe container

(Forgetful Mommy left it on the floor so I guess it's not ALL their fault)


Playing with Riesy, our favorite doggie

Perry learned to fling her headband across the room

This is what happens when we hear the garage door open and Daddy gets home...

what a wonderful welcome home committee!


Ella's first haircut!

Her bangs hung in her eyes and she won't leave a barrette or clip in, so...







Only cut a little bit, but it made a big difference!


April 5

Perry and Ella are 17 months old!


April 6

Trip to see the Easter Bunny


April 8

Perry found an egg and is patiently waiting for her sister to finish her bottle so they can hunt eggs together


Ella's got her bucket and is ready to hunt

Ella found one!


Perry found another!

Ella thinks the eggs are tasty...and she stole Perry's bucket


Found another one...."Mmmm, yummy!"


"I got one too, but I can't get it out!"


"Man, we are good at this egg hunting thing"

"I can even find them while I drink my bottle"


Ella putting her egg in the bucket...Perry decided to play with her shape sorter bucket

Gifts from the Easter Bunny

Attack of the babies!


"There are Puffs in here!"


"Oh, read the card first?!?!"

So much stuff!

Crayons, cups, pants, bubbles!

"Can I eat this pull toy?"..."Check out my new barrettes Daddy!"

Perry is curious about the Ariel bubble blower


Ella likes the bubbles

Perry is not so sure about them

"I do not like these weird bubble things"

"Well, maybe if Ella likes them"

I think Perry was sad that she couldn't grab onto them


And some pics of our "new" office

This is the dining room, but the office used to have an opening like that

Now it looks like this

Still needs a few finishing touches, but looks pretty good

View as you walk in the front door

(Office to the left, dining room to the right)

We knew they were too quiet in their room...



They turned over the hamper in the closet

Dinner time!

Notice Riesy hanging out by Ella

"Hurry up with the food, we're hungry!"

Trying to get passport pictures...

Of course Perry takes the good pictures when she's not in front of the door (it has to be a white background)

Luckily some of Mommy's online friends can photoshop the background for us

We got Ella in like 4 shots...she's a good "model"

And some pictures in the backyard...
