Let's Have a Picnic

Kaylie has been begging to
have a picnic for a few days now
So today during nap time I searched for
an hour through the boxes in our
garage to find our picnic backpack
I found it!
She was SO excited!!!

She prepared a picnic for her babies
in the playroom
Then we had a picnic of fruit out
front with her baby....
She is hooked and is already
talking about our next picnic
It will include lunch,
I had to promise!

Living Room....check

Devin finished patching, sanding, painting
changing door casing and baseboard in the living room
a few weeks ago....
It is so nice to have clean, pretty walls!
Our living room was bad, but didn't always look like it does below
I promise!
another before picture,
blue, dirty walls
crisp, clean, pretty
Our new painting
Christmas gift from Mel
for now......
We have bigger plans for this room
(which will actually be the dining room)
but for now I just love the cleanness of it
It's starting to feel like home
and I like it!

So thankful for my husband who is handy, willing
and able to do the work
and do it well.

We had a very low-key Easter here this year
My heart is heavy and somewhere in Detroit!
But the Easter Bunny came for a visit
Kaylie quickly found a basket,
but it wasn't hers....
she found Trey's
so she had to try again!
And this time, found hers....
she takes a little after her uncle in
her seeking abilities....
we will have to share photos of that later
to compare!
Trey was even able to find his basket
I guess the Easter Bunny will have to
do a better job of hiding it next year
Devin was working so we went to the
Fire Station for Easter dinner

And while we were there we played
a little dress-up
fire fighter in training!

Kaylie asked Auntie M to come along so
she gladly did....She had fun in the firetruck
just like the kiddos
Devin got some good pictures with the kids this time
Kaylie pretty much took over and was
ready to drive the guys to their next call
When we got home
we put Trey to bed
and Auntie M did an Easter egg
hunt with Kaylie

It was fun until Kaylie didn't think she hid
them well enough and wouldn't pick the
eggs up because they were on the floor!

We had a nice, fun, quiet Easter.

only cover one eye!

Kaylie turned 3!

We had hupcakes....

and by request,
they were pink!
In the midst of
a construction zone
Kaylie opened her gift from us
She got all of Andy's toys
She always asks if she can go to Andy's house
and play with his toys because he has
the best toys!

I'm not sure how, but
she is 3!
Happy birthday sweet girl!

Hallway..... check!

Devin has been working hard getting
the hallway pretty.

The old entry way floor,
I almost forgot it looked like this!
New entry way floor and a clean, painted front door
What we used to see when we entered the house
What we now see.....
better, right!

Teacher Kaylie?!!!

Kaylie had her school all set up today...
It was so cute to hear her read to her babies
Not only was it precious to watch, but
maybe, just maybe
she will join the rest of the girls in
the family and one day become a teacher!
And did you know she turns 3 tomorrow.....
I can't believe I just said that.
3..... WOW!
