Holy Smokes

Why am I so lame this year? Well I have a million things to catch up on. ok 4, maybe 5 but it feels like a lot!

Easter
Apparently Easter bunnies are scary. As I started to think about this tradition, I realized that the idea is kinda creepy. A giant Rabbit coming into our house to leave candy in our rooms. I always thought this was awesome, but Natalie made it very clear to me that this was indeed creepsville.
The night prior to Easter she had a rough time sleeping, waking up several times to tell me in tears that she doesn't want the Easter bunny in our house, especially not in her room.
After calming her down and convincing her that he would leave the baskets in my room and he wouldn't come close to hers, she asked through her tears that she wanted me to also tell him that she wanted a pink basket. There is always room for pink I guess! haha
But after he came and delivered a plethora of Candy and goodies that morning, we headed to Grandma and Papas for Conference and Easter. More baskets and a huge egg hunt. They spoil us all!! Of course I forgot the camera that day. I also forgot their Easter clothes, neither of which really matter since boots slept through the whole thing anyway!
But it was an excellent day, filled with Christ. Natalie learned this year what Easter really is, "Jesus Died and he lives again." Perfect. I have to tell ya, there isn't much that makes me happier than to hear my children already being righteous and talking to me about Jesus Christ.
Something that does make me just as happy is hearing a new 17 week old fetus' heart beat, just like we did today when we heard our baby girls!!

updates to come SOON, I swear:
Chicago Anniversary Trip
My fantastical cute kids
My awesome Mother

Yay for 2 girls! How fun. I secretly kind of a little bit wanted another girl for the matching and the accessorizing, but only just a little. 2 low key boys will do me just fine! Congrats!

Congrats!! I hope you're feeling well!! That's such great news!
And thankfully we never mentioned an Easter bunny and don't plan to. Maybe don't even mention it next year and she'll forget about it! It's so funny sometimes what kids have in their imaginations!!
