Easter Fun

All the kids dressed for church. Jack loves to goof off for the camera. He always gives his cheesy grin. It cracks us up. We even got to church on time...which is amazing for us!
Kate looked so cute in her little Strasburg dress...thanks to her Nonna!
Madi and Jack had fun seeing what the Easter Bunny brought them.
Chris' mom hosts an Easter Egg hunt every year for some of Madi's friends. It's always a blast and they hid 250 eggs this year for only 8 kids! Their baskets were overflowing! Jack had a lot of fun putting the eggs in his basket.
Madi with some of her eggs after the hunt. There are refreshments too. All that running and hunting eggs can work up an appetite.

Kiki & Chase come to Visit

Jack had fun playing with Chase. He loves to be silly and laugh. He make us laugh with his crazy smile.
Kiki And Kate looked so cute with their matching outfits.
Kiki and Chase getting lots of practice with parenting. However, I recommend one at a time (and not spaced a year apart)! All the kids love to have them over.
Jack loves to play Chris' harmonica. He thinks it is so funny that it makes noise if he just breathes into it. He also likes to climb in his chair and make it rock back and forth standing up. It about gives me a heart-attack because it's right by the tile on the fireplace.

Baby Kate

Here's baby Kate! She was born on Feb. 12th and weighed in at 7 lbs. 13 oz. She is so tiny to us compared to Madison and Jack! She is so sweet. We are all so excited that she is finally here.
Madison loves her new sister! She is a huge helper too. She loves to pick out what she is going to wear. She gives her a kiss first thing when she wakes up in the morning.
Jack has had the biggest adjustment of all. But he loves to give her hugs and kisses. He puts his head on her tummy for a hug and his head against hers for a kiss. He even tries to say Kate. It comes out more like "Tate". So far he says Momma, Dad-da, dog, cat, cracka(cracker), and Tate(Kate). He's going to be a good big brother. They are 1 year and 1 week apart in age (Jack's b'day is Feb. 5th)!

Jack's First Birthday

We just had our families over for cake and ice cream for Jack's birthday. He had a great time and got many nice presents. He loves his new big wheel car! It will be perfect for the spring when it warms up a little.
Jack's cake had a blue elephant because he has a blue stuffed animal elephant that he has to sleep with every night.
He loved the cake and ice cream! He didn't even make too big of a mess with it.
He got lots of truck stuff, which was great since our house is full of girly toys. Chris is tired of him playing with Barbies!

Jack loves to play with his daddy! He can't wait for him to come home and ruff him up.
Dad and Jack ready for church. Dad's in his "uniform" as Madison calls it because he wears a suit to work everyday. So if he has on a suit and she doesn't think he's supposed to be going to work that day, then she asks why he has his "uniform" on.
Big Momma and Madison. I feel like I'm about to pop, but still have 2 more weeks!
Jack loves to jump around in Kate's crib. Madison and I made the letters for Kate's wall on Saturday. Thanks to my wonderful and talented friend Caroline who gave me the idea. Madison was jealous that Kate's turned out so cute that she is getting some for her room too.

Yeah, an Update!!

Wow, so our computer has decided to let me upload pictures again (after over a year)! I decided to try again since we will be adding yet another little person to the family here soon. We are busy getting ready for the 24-hour chaos that our house will be in for the next several months, if not years. More pictures to come...
