Easter 2016

Easter came and went this year and I neglected to document it.  Here is what's been happening around here lately...

We kind of dropped the ball on egg hunts this year...I was going to go to a big one at Maple View, but my friends backed out, and i really didn't feel like going alone with Emma (Brent was working).  Last year, Emma's school had a big hunt on Saturday, but this year they scaled it WAYY back and did in Friday afternoon.  It was fun for Emma, but no where as much fun as last year.

Emma's really into bubbles right now:)

Easter morning at church, Brent had light duty, and Emma loves to sit up there with him and "help."  I decided we would take some silly photos since I knew a family picture after church was probably not in the cards:)

We always do an egg hunt at my parents, and this year was no disappointment.  I love watching Emma run around the yard - the same yard I grew up in and hunted for eggs in...:)

I had a hair appointment one evening and Brent couldn't get off work early, so I took Emma with me.  She always does so good, and I actually love taking her with me - what a team!

The Easter bunny brought Emma some gardening tools and accessories.  We planted 3 small pots of flowers, and have been watering/stalking/touching/poking them daily.

 I let Emma wear her Dora dress for errands the other day...her obsession with the Paw Patrol dress (see above pics) and this Dora dress are a bit out of control.  But, I guess I can't fight everything.

Brent is almost done with the stairs!  We went to Lowe's with him to get some plywood to block off the stairs while he put the final coats of varnish on them to keep the cats from walking on them.  Everyone in there wanted to be just like Emma:)

I made these custom pieces for a cute co-worker.  She is expecting her first baby in a month or so.  She has an antler piece as well, and I need to get some photos of her because she is just the cutest thing!  My etsy shop has been doing pretty good lately, so I am pleased, and I am researching other retail avenues, so I'm excited to see where those take me!

We moved Emma's seat back as far as it can go on her trike, and she is asking daily for a new bike.  I showed her a princess one with a babydoll carrier on it, and she's pretty much obsessed now.  I keep telling her we will wait for her birthday - which I think is entirely too far off now that I think about it....

Happy spring, everyone!!  It's going to be pretty cool around here for a week or so, then I'm hoping for a warm up!!
