We had a great Easter weekend. We started it on Good Friday by decorating Easter eggs. The boys loved it!!
We didn't even make a mess:)

Sunday morning the Easter bunny left them candy and new beach towels with their names on them!

The boys all dressed up for church. I have NO idea what they were doing.

I love them sooo much!!

This is them during the children's part of the service. Briggs usually waves and gives us thumbs up:0 it is pretty comical.

Grady hunting eggs at church.

Briggs putting stickers on them.

After church we had a LARGE meal at our house and then went outside and did bubbles and then

We hunted eggs!!!

Grady hit the jack pot underneath the trampoline!

Owen and his cute little basket.

Kannon was more interested in the sandbox.

We had a great Easter and we are still stuffed and have a TON of candy!!

32 weeks

It's hard to believe that in 8 weeks (hopefully 7) there will be another little boy added to these precious little guys.

I can't help but wonder if he will be an old soul like Briggs, laid back, easy going, hard worker, perfectionist


will he be like Grady, loving, momma's boy, cuddle bug, VERY temperamental, strong willed

I really just think he is going to be Crue, and he is going to be different from both of these guys just the way God wants it to be.:)

Here is Crue at 32 weeks. I know I'm huge.

P.S. My little sis Cori is having her baby next week. Please pray that all goes well and that her and little Griffin are healthy and that the delivery goes smoothly.:)
