Dance Parties

I'm so glad that Spring is finally here! I think this might have been the longest winter for me--it was tough trying to think of new ways to entertain the kids when you can't go outside all the time. One thing that helped us survive through those long months were dance parties. I turned on music one night and told them to dance around. I couldn't believe how much they loved it. It has become a nightly tradition. Their moves continue to impress and improve. :) Here are some pics of one fun dance party!

Claire is our little gymnast. She loves to do somersaults and is almost able to push herself over.

It's a lot of fun and I'm hoping even with the warm weather and the countless hours we are going to be outside we will still find time to have our parties!

We had a great Easter. The kids are starting to really enjoy all the holidays. We did a lot of fun things throughout the week and weekend. One of Jaxon's favorite things was going to the library for a bunny story time with our neighbors and then decorating cupcakes with them later in the afternoon.

Saturday was a packed day. We started off with a brunch at my Grandma's house. It was a birthday brunch as well as a going away party for my brother who is moving to Houston. We always enjoy the company and food at Grandma's. It is so hard to get a good family picture with everyone looking, but we managed to get a semi-decent one.

We also had a family party and Easter egg hunt with my Dad's family. Luckily, it started to rain just as we were about to hide the eggs so it was easy to move inside.

The Easter Bunny came on Saturday night and left a trail of candy from our door to the family room . Jaxon and Claire both had so much fun finding everything.

Jeff had the stomach flu, so he kept Claire home with him while Jaxon and I went to church. I was bummed Claire didn't get to wear her Easter dress, but there's always next week. Jaxon looked so handsome and grown up in his Easter outfit.

After church, we went to my sister's house for an Easter dinner and birthday party for our niece. We had a lot of fun with our family. My mom was up for the week so it was great that she was there with us. We had yet another Easter egg hunt, but Jaxon still had as much fun as the first time. We will be eating Easter candy for a long time.

Fun in the Shower!

Yesterday morning, Jeff started the shower and ran into the other room to grab something. When he came back, this is what he found.

How they both got in the shower that quick I'm not really sure. We laughed about it and let them play for a while.
