Mad dash of birthdays

I have had so many moments that I've thought I would blog only to remember how far behind on blogging I am! So I've decided to just blog what's on my mind and then maybe make up some other thoughts later...

Our house has been a flurry of birthday events for weeks it seems! The girls' birthdays are only a day apart and of course they always fall on Easter weekend so we ended up having the party a week later. Everything went great and the girls seemed to have a great time with their friends but the two weeks or so leading up to it was nothing but planning on birthday stuff, working on birthday stuff and hearing "Is it my birthday yet?" "How many days till my birthday?"and eventually it was "Did you get my present done yet?"

I have always been an over achiever and I usually get in over my head and end up stressed out in a big way. This year was no different! lol I wanted so badly to have everything done in time, and for the most part I did actually get it all done! I had new name banners made for each of the girls, a crown for each of them AND new babies (with matching blankets, pillows and pjs)

Hands On Fun Toys

I have been trying for some time now to get my crafting blog up and running and although I still have lots to add I wanted to post it on here for everyone to check out my new blog I am really excited to know people are reading about my toys and sharing it with friends. I have plans for some contests and specials so check back often!

A quiet Easter Sunday

Yesterday was far from exciting, and didn't have an flashy aspects to it but it was one of the best days we've had in a long time. We all slept in, listened to Ed's sermon, talked to family members across the country and just really had a relaxing, no pressure day. To end it all on a great note, the meal turned out perfect, and it was an over-all wonderful day!
