Keeping Busy

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!

{Our attempts at a decent Easter picture didn't turn out so well!}

Sorry for the lack of posting lately, but I am still feeling my way through having a third child!  I'm considering this my maternity leave!

Anyway, I have still been working on the nursery, which was supposed to be finished last month.  Between nursing, exhaustion, & the Pinterest time sucker, I haven't been able to get much accomplished, but it is coming along & I hope to share some of the latest projects with you next week.  Hopefully, I'll get it all finished within the next couple of weeks.  There are only a few projects left to complete.

Last week was spring break for our family.  We didn't want to travel far, since we have a newborn, so we decided to take a quick trip up north, to Columbus, Ohio.  Our trip included a tour of a life-sized replica of the Santa Maria, swimming at the hotel, & a visit to COSI (a science center).

Of course, we also spent some time hunting for eggs, coloring eggs, & opening Easter goodies!

{Evalyse's first Easter...Why did I not dress her in a more girly sleeper or wipe the spit-up off her face???}

Obviously, Evalyse didn't get candy for Easter (Okay, I did put a chocolate bunny in her basket that I fully intended to eat myself!).  Since it's hard to know what to put in a 5 week old's Easter basket, I'll share what she had in hers:

White Eyelet Sun Hat (Target)
Hippo Rattle (Geranimals from Wal-Mart)
3 pack teethers (Wal-Mart)
Rubber Duck (Wal-Mart)
Ball (Target)
Egg Shakers (plastic eggs filled with rice, beans, or dry macaroni & glued back together)
Printable black & white flash cards (free download from Brillkids)
Taggy Blanket (made by me!)

{Perfect by no means!}

Well, I think that fills you in on life the past few weeks!  I'll be back next week to show off some of the nursery progress.

Have a great weekend!

  1. I think your family picture is kind of hilarious. It reminds me of the picture I made Art take of me with the kids last mother's day, where one of the boys is strangling me and Gracie is picking her nose. :)
