Happy Easter!

Lilly got to go visit her "Great Mama" and "Great Pop" Wednesday and go to their church's Easter egg hunt. She had a great time and loved seeing all the other children. Her Great Grandparents love her to death and she had loves seeing them.

I ordered blinds for the house and they started coming in this week. I have been working to get them put up, but it is a lot of work! I have to wait a little longer for 4 of them to be shipped. I will be so glad to have all of them up and be done with this project!

April updates

It's been a while since my last post, but I have been busy getting things unpacked and done at the new house. We are really loving it here. Lilly does, too! We go outside to play almost every afternoon and take a family walk in the evenings. she wants to "ride". Lilly will tell us She just recently got a cozy coupe and never gets tired of playing with it. She has made a friend next door and they play together everytime they are both outside. We are really looking foward to the neighborhood pool opening May 1st!

Brendan's 30th Birthday was April 8th and we had a few friends and family over to celebrate. He didn't want to make a big deal out of his Birthday, but I decided to suprise him and invite a few people over for dinner. Of course he snooped around in my e-mail and ruined the suprise. We still had a good time though. Isabell also celebrated her Birthday on the 13th. She turned 7.

Lilly has been practicing for an Easter egg hunt in our yard. She was supposed to have on at Saluda Shoals today that our church usually holds. The weather was supposed to get bad so I kept checking my e-mail and the church website for details. There were no updates, so we headed to the park (it still hadn't rained). We got there and were told that someone had just come by to cancel it. Poor Lilly!
She had gotten all excied for nothing. Instead, she got to help me plant flowers.

Her vocabulary grows daily and she is so sweet. She has really started liking carrots and asks for them. She also LOVES "pee-pie" or pizza. Sometimes she even asks for it for breakfast and I have to talk her into something else. She has started climbing more, but hasn't tried to climb out the crib yet. I hope that day doesn't come for a long time.
Here are some pictures of Lilly and the new house:
