Easter

We had a wonderful Easter weekend filled with lots of fun activities on Saturday and then spending Sunday with Kim's family for Easter dinner. Enjoying the beautiful sunshine after church.







I set up an easter egg hunt for Halle in our back yard.




Decorating Easter eggs. Halle thought it was the coolest thing ever.





We went to the Easter egg hunt in town. Halle got a whole two eggs ;) She was so proud.

Poor girl was scared of the Easter bunny.

The Park

The snow has finally melted enough to play at the park! Halle has been asking all winter to play at the park so it has been so fun to finally be able to bring her there.

Halle's Happy Song

videoHalle loves to sing. She goes around all day singing her cute little made up songs. She loves watching American Idol with me so I think that's where she gets it. She pretends the guitar stand is a microphone and then she sings her little heart out :)

Mess-maker Halle

So Halle has been going through this phase lately where she thinks making messes is the most awesome thing. And she tends to wait until I'm in the shower to do her dirty work. I used to just laugh, shake my head and say, "kids will be kids," then go about cleaning it up. Now that I am almost nine months pregnant, cleaning up messes isn't so funny anymore. Mostly because it is seriously painful to bend over, so lately I have been crying over the messes so I just had to take a picture of her recent huge mess of pancake mix all over the house so that I can laugh about it later when I am not nine months pregnant anymore. ;)

"Get 'em Mamma!"

One day there was a spider on the ceiling. We usually don't have very many spiders in the house so it's a big deal to Halle when there is one. Halle noticed the spider and said to me, "get 'em mamma!" Well, I wasn't about to stand my pregnant self up on a chair in the middle of the kitchen to kill a spider so i just said, "no Halle, moms are scared of spiders." She got this cute little expression on her face and ran to the bathroom to get a tissue. She came running back into the kitchen and with a proud little look she said, "I get 'em mamma!" So she pushed a chair under the spider and tried for several minutes to get the spider, even though it was several feet out of her reach, the whole time saying, "reach! reach!" thinking that she would eventually reach far enough to get that spider. Every once in a while she would look over at me and with a proud expression say, "I get 'em mamma!" Oh what would I do without my brave little spider killer to get those spiders that moms are scared of :) What a cutie.

"Bake?"

Halle asks me to "bake?" several times a day. She loves being in the kitchen helping me cook. It doesn't matter if it is cookies or soup or anything else, she just loves being a little chef!
