What a wonderful Easter!

For Easter we went to Matt's brother's house. Not only did we have delicious food the kids also had a blast with their Easter Egg hunt, bouncy house and play set!!!

JT searching the yard for eggs. He found many and they were all filled with CANDY! Yah!
Here is Greg on top of the play set. He found an egg up there!!!

JT just chilling at the top of the slide!!!
Bradley and I after the egg hunt. I am also holding Gabe in the sling. He slept the entire time! What a good boy!

Matt and I enjoying the sunshine!!! It was a GORGEOUS Arizona day!

The kids playing the bouncy house. After I took this picture I read the weight limits on the back and told Bradley he had to exit. :) It couldn't hold more than 200 pounds and with just MY three kids in there we were over capacity!
JT had a blast playing on the play set. What a fun day. We all came home and took naps. Much needed naps I might add!!!

Easter Eggs and Bumbo chairs

JT is VERY excited this year about Easter. He must remember from last year all of the candy he received. That boy LOVES him some candy!! Sometimes that is all he talks about. He likes all kind, but chocolate is NOT his favorite. Her prefers things like lollipops or starburst. He wanted to color eggs so I thought how hard can it be with a 9 year old and a 4 year old. Ha! Even now as I am writing this I am laughing to myself. JT was pitching a fit because he thought Greg got more eggs than him...had better colors than him, etc. Funny thing was the next morning on the way to school he kept saying how much fun he had!!! :)
Boys really trying to make their eggs nice. I bought the wrong pack of egg color. I thought I bought the normal boring one, but I bought this tie-dyed one and we couldn't follow the directions because it was too complicated so we were trying to make it work!!
Finished eggs. LOVE the bright colors!!!!
That same day I was giving Gabe some Bumbo time. I am trying to get him to sit up straighter. Every time you put him in there he leans....so cute and getting SO big!!!

He just wasn't sure what to think. I just like seeing him sitting up so big!! Hope everyone has a Happy Easter!!!!

Can you believe we are 2 months old???

****UPDATE****Gabe had this two month check up and he is now 11 lbs and 12 oz. He is 22 1/2 inches long!! Go Gabers!!!

On Sunday, my cousin DJ asked to stop by and hang out with us for a bit! We LOVE it when DJ comes to visit. He is the fun 25 year old cousin, but almost seems more like an uncle to the kids. He used to live much closer to us, but moved by work when gas prices shot up and now we rarely ever see him. :( It's a 45 minute drive to just come and say hi. We DID feed him pizza and wings so the long trip was worth it! Here is a sweet picture of ALL the boys!!!

And another because what if the first one didn't take! :)
Here is Gabe in the Bumbo chair. I never bought a Bumbo chair for JT because I felt they were so expensive and all my kids were early to sit. They were ALL 4 months old. So in mind I couldn't see spending the money on one. Well, my wonderful sister-in-law had one and she is letting us borrow it. Yah for borrowing stuff!! This is our first attempt in him sitting in it. He is getting stronger and stronger sitting in there and hope to have new pictures soon! As you can see he isn't sure what to think...He is looking at Grandma in this picture! :)

Around 6 weeks we took Gabe to have his pictures done. Here are just a few of my favorites.

Oooh how we love him!! Sure wish he wasn't growing up so quickly!!! He is such a sweet little baby and the giggling has finally begun!! He giggles and smiles and it is so cute! I just have to get it on camera! Don't worry I will keep trying!
