Our long week!

We took a trip this week to visit the fam.....lots of unexpected happened along the way, of course! There was definitely more that I would have liked to do and several other friends I would have loved to have seen (sorry guys, I have the hardest time fitting everyone in) and the unexpected always seems to creep up and kink my plans too!

Having fun playing some sort of "game" with Gigi.....between his time with Gigi, Nana came up from Georgia too, and Grandpa, Reed was entertained with all the constant attention.
The little miss had her fun too....she was full of smiles and laughter all week as well!

What could be more fun than bathtime with your cousins! They all three were in there at one point and had a blast! This is the more modest picture of our girl outside the tub; I figured I shouldn't post the other--though her little bare bottom standing there is as cute as it can be!
We got to go see Grandpa and Grandma one evening and see their new house they have been building. We can't wait to see the final product once it's completed in the next couple months!
Our one day friend adventure we were able to fit you can see the sickness was starting here. Reed starting running a temperature that day and did so for the next 2 days. Everytime Robyn and I plan to get the kids together someone is sick, and even though we managed to actually do it this time, someone still managed to get sick.

All three in the yard with their matching bunny glasses, of course none of them would leave them on for the picture but at least they are holding them.
When we got home Reed's fever finally was gone, but we still are having lots of runny noses and coughing...I think allergy related. And now Emery-Claire has the eye thing Reed had about a week ago and double ear infection! Neither of them have ever had an ear infection, so the fun times in sickness keeps coming for us I suppose. And it's supposed to get back into the 30s-40s this week---yuck! Why is Easter week always so cold and rainy every year, I just don't get that?! Hopefully we will all be well and able to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord! And I have basically finished Emery-Claire's smocked dress! What an accomplishment! I suppose it doesn't look half bad for being my first attempt. I'll post a picture of her in it soon; I still need to finish the hem. And Tuesday the kids are having a spring picture made, so I need to do it before then! Not sure how often I will do something like that as it is such a long process with lots of steps, though since I put so much time into learning I feel I should at least try again soon to not let what I learn be wasted. So hopefully I will suceed on my own, without a class and instructor, and not become too terribly frustrated! So we shall see.

  1. Hope everyone is feeling better! Love seeing how the kiddos are doing! I am so impressed with your smocking! I thought about learning, but no one out here even knows what it is! :)

  2. I'm totally impressed that you even tried smocking! Can't wait to see the final product!
