New house

We are excited to say that we have bought a new house. We are closing on the same day that we close on ours...May 21st. It will be a long day, but we are very excited and can't wait to get this show on the road.

Oh, and the new house is really only about 10 or 15 mintues from our house now so it's not that big of a difference in location. Just different schools that are still great!

Paisley's 1st Birthday!!

I can't believe our little girl is turning one!! WOW what a year it has been. She is truly a blessing and Noah enjoys playing with his little sister. I'm so glad they get along so well. To celebrate her day Matt's family came over for an afternoon party. (My family was out of town. That party is yet to come.) Aunt Andrea, Uncle Brad, and cousin Will were nice enough to drive down and join in on the day. There was sand, water, sports, presents, and cake for the sugar girl. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
(Those aren't's water)
Presents...Thank You so much for everything.
CAKE!!! She did a good job with her cake. At first she just wanted it and explored. Once Noah showed her what it was she dug in and ate by the handfuls!

Probably too many pictures, but we only took about a 150!


The Easter bunny made his annual visit again this year leaving nothing but goodies for the kiddos. Noah was very excited to find his basket. Paisley was still trying to figure it out. Really all Paisley wanted was to eat the peeps...and I mean RIGHT NOW!! She can smell sugar a mile away!

(I just went through all the Easter pictures to figure out which ones to put on here and couldn't find one without Paisley holding onto her peeps!)

After church and a nap we headed to Dean and Debbie's for Easter lunch. The kids so nicely let me take an Easter photo before they ran/crawled off the play. They had a fun filled afternoon decorating cookies, opening baskets, finding eggs, and playing outside with airplanes and balls(soccer and baseball).

We are blessed to know that Christ is risen!!!!

Easter Eggs

This year I decided that Noah was old enough to dye Easter Eggs and have fun with it. Noah picked out glitter eggs this year. (Note to self: Won't do that again.) We took everything outside and stripped him down to avoid stained clothes. He did a great job putting the eggs in the dye. He was really excited about the colors and kept wanting to check on them. The only problem is that he was not too gentle and would drop the eggs back in the cup and watch the splash. I'm still not sure how he didn't end up breaking an egg in the process.
Paisley also got her turn in the end. She couldn't keep her hands off the bright colors. Luckily we gave her pink dye so it didn't stain her hands too bad.

After dying eggs Noah went to play and Paisley was beside herself trying to figure out how to get off the deck.

Sand Table

Paisley has found a new love for the sand table. The two have a lot of fun together and so far we have avoided the throwing sand on one another. Not sure how much longer that is going to last!

Here are a few pictures that were too cute not to post!
