Easter Egg Hunt

Waiting in his suit!

Waiting in his suit!

Went had his first Easter Egg Hunt today – and we dressed him up in his Easter Finery (minus the necktie).  I figured he would really only get to wear it this weekend, so we might as well go all-out!

"Do I eat the Bunny Bucket?"

“Do I eat the Bunny Bucket?”

"No really, Papa, let me just get an ear into my mouth..."

“No really, Papa, let me just get an ear into my mouth…”

He had no idea what Papa was trying to do with him, so they picked up a few eggs and mostly focused on the Goldfish Crackers (which promptly went into my new trunk in the emergency ration bag).  Next year he’ll be all over it!  This year – ah, bubbles are nice!  😀

"I'm so confused!"

“I’m so confused!”

"Can't get a grip on the goldfish!"

“Can’t get a grip on the goldfish!”

We also were doing recruiting for Cub Scouts and American Heritage Girls (hence my uniform).

Yay for Scouting!

It was a nice morning, great weather and good friends!

Date with Daddy

Tonight, GO had her school “Dad’s Dessert Night”.

She was *so excited* to get ready for her date with her Daddy.  She picked out a brand-new dress and shoes.  Took a fancy bubble bath and “did her hair”.  Then sat patiently to have her nails painted.  She even put on lip gloss!

I love how she lifts her dress "like a Princess".

Look at that sassy pose!

It was a wonderful night for her, and I’m so glad she enjoyed it!  I love that our preschool encourages parents/children as much as they do!

Scooter Girl!

She’s been wanting one since Christmas, and this week I found a Disney Princess Scooter and Helmet for GO.

iPhone Photos

A generally “dump” of cute iPhone photos – mostly of the wee one Went.  Only because the rest don’t sit still long enough to let me take pictures!

Roll the Chips and Marshmallows into the Crescent Rolls and bake as directed.  OH MY GOSH – these were SO YUMMY!  And simple!

Free Ice Cream!

Bruster’s had a free ice cream night – and not just a LITTLE free ice cream – this was a whole waffle cone per person.  Only catch?  You had to be in your jammies!

BANANAS!

OOOOOOOH!  Tonight we tried a “real” food with Went and BOY was that a hit!  I pureed up two bananas, and divided them up for his daily snack.  He was confused when he got the first bite, but dove right in, leaving not a speck left!  He LOVED them.

"This, Mummy, is NOT Rice Cereal!"

“This, Mummy, is NOT Rice Cereal!”

"I do WHAT with this new taste sensation?"

“I do WHAT with this new taste sensation?”

"I think I like..."

“I think I like…”

"Mummy, I gots the SPOON!"

“Mummy, I gots the SPOON!”

And required a bath afterwards!  😉

Clean Hair!

Due to our family history of food allergies, we are taking things VERY slow.  So, he’ll have bananas for a week or so (rather than the standard 3 days), then we will choose food #2.  I’m thinking avocados!  😀

I love this boy!
