Pancakes and Pajamas!

Noah and I were so excited when he was invited to his friend Eli's 3rd birthday party... It was a pancake party where we were encouraged to wear our PJ's - how fun is that?!

I am happy to say that I wore pajamas, and was pretty bummed when no other adults joined in the fun.... except for Eli's mommy :) Darren watched Faith while Noah and I went and had a ball. Noah was so patient as Eli opened up many cars and trucks and fun "boy" toys, and then all the boys played with them. I was so proud of Noah - he was very polite and sweet :)

They also had a construction theme, and it is well within a toddler's rights to have a construction/pancake/pajama theme.  Here is Noah in his Home Depot apron with toolbox and hat.

I can't wait until Faith is this big!

This is Lucy, my friend Danaly's little girl - wearing the princess dress we got her for Christmas :)

Don't you just love her?!? I miss her like crazy since they moved to Texas last summer :( But hopefully we will get to see the whole Payne family in a few months.

We love you guys!

Easter Eggs!

What better way to keep a sick toddler occupied on a rainy day than to give him "Cars" inspired stickers and colors to make Easter eggs! 

I have to say that my walk through Target to find candy for our Easter egg hunt on Sunday was kind of disturbing... it was like Christmas!  There were toy cars, dolls - you name it - but packaged in pink/purple and stamped for Easter - so now people are expected give gifts?

The gift, my friends, was given in Jesus Christ - the reason we celebrate Easter in the first place. Easter is now a Deja Vu of Christmas.  Anyhow, I was shocked at how far beyond a simple basket things have gone.  Noah will make eggs, will find them when hidden, and will get a chocolate something or other as he gets older - but he won't be getting toys.   I think Christmas and his birthday (and 6/10 trips to Target) are sufficient for him.  Just my 2 cents.

So Crazy!

Anyhow, here are our pics!

The kiddos

Faith is vocalizing a ton, squealing, hollering, yelling, etc.  Sometimes I can't help but to just laugh at her.  Noah is so so good with her.   He is tender and loving, tells her she's cute, hugs her and kisses her - it's heartwarming.  He has had a cold this last week so I've had to curb his affections toward her a bit, but he's been wonderful.

Uncrustables have crust. Who knew?

Phase 372 of our home update project - French doors. Of course I
forgot to buy the hardware so we will be without door handles until
