Easter Morning




The girls always get up and start eating the candy out of the eggs before Mommy and Daddy get their lazy bummies out of bed. They were on a sugar high for church.

Dying Easter Eggs and More


Mara and Syssa got small Mr. Potato Heads from Auntie Carla for a late Christmas present. They decided they wanted to make their own heads like Mr. Potato Head. Where do they come up with these things?


Nattie getting ready to try to crawl.

Done dying Easter eggs.


Nattie Standin

video

Nattie continues to amaze us as she is trying to crawl and is holding onto things standing up. She is truly amazing to watch because she is so tiny. She reminds me a lot of Alyssa at this age. She gets very frustrated when she can't pull up on something. She doesn't stand by herself or pull herself completely up but she's still very determined to do it at this point. She's a cutie and you'll see what I'm talking about with this video.

How's it going???

I haven't updated in a while. Things have been quite hectic around here and I haven't had much time to post. I'll be better about it though. Nattie's now almost crawling, she gets up on all fours and rocks. It's so cute. She is sitting up without support all the time now too. She also gets up like she's going to do a bear crawl and then plops back down to the ground. She said Hi, Dada and Mama on Friday the 14th I think. It was so cool. She did say hi first so she followed in Syssa's footsteps in that. She definitely has a mind of her own. Alyssa is doing well in school. Her teacher just says that she talks a lot and is very bubbly (not my Syssa :-) Samara is just as cute as ever. She is a Mommy's girl and a snuggler but has fire for an attitude when tested. I am so blessed with the three of them. Micah is still hard at work. We have to decide here pretty soon on whether we are getting out or staying in or leaving here or staying here. Lots of big decisions to make. I'm doing well training for my triathlon. At least I hope I am. I run 3 times a week and swim twice a week and either swim run or swim bike on Saturdays. I'll be doing a 5K on next Saturday the 29th of March. Wish me luck. I'll try and keep you more updated, sorry.

Easter Egg Hunt

We had an Easter Egg Hunt at our housing office this last Saturday. The girls had fun. I was really glad that Mara didn't notice the mom in front of us that was snatching up all the eggs with both hands. At least Mara and Nattie each got one.


Done hunting.


Nattie's Easter Egg


Mara's Easter Egg.

I'm happy to say that they did the 4 year olds by themselves so Alyssa got 6 eggs. She shared with her sister... how sweet. She found a slip of paper in one of hers and won a big Easter basket with a ball and sidewalk chalk in it. She was sooo excited.

Before the race....

Smithsonian

Micah's grandparents came and stayed with us for 2 weeks so we decided to take the Metro to the Smithsonian. It was fun. Mara cried and screamed in the first museum we went to and then was tired and whiney the rest of the day. Syssa never complained once and Nattie was absolutely excellent.





This one's for you Grandpa Ozzie.
