It's Easter!

We had a great Easter here in sunny AZ. The weather was perfect, only about 70 for the high. The boys had a great time seeing what the Easter bunny brought and eating candy galore! Here are a few pics from our big busy day.

Patrick with his Easter egg and binky - what could be better?

After Mass

Christopher in his carrot car outfit-he only agreed to a picture when I told him he could put Gordon, Thomas, and Percy in it too. The whole time I was putting it together he would look at it and say "must fit Chris".

Patrick's introduction to the wonderful world of Peeps - yes, he ate the whole thing!

Videos for a Tuesday

Hi! Thought I'd post a few videos today to get you all ready for our upcoming visit! The first is Christopher playing Old McDonald Had a Farm on the piano and singing along. It's super cute when he does it all by himself, but by the time I get the video camera he's on to me and won't do it, so this time Daddy helped. The second is of Patrick in a surprisingly good mood in the bathtub last night. Daddy and the air-under-the-cup trick were hilarious!

Look Mom, No Hands!

So this afternoon, Patrick thought he'd do something more exciting than nap. He started holding onto my shoulder like normal and then letting go and standing all by himself. He can stand for a good 15-20 seconds until he gets so excited he loses his balance. He got really brave this evening and tried a few times to take a step or two, but that hasn't gone so well. Now if you ask him to show you "No Hands", he smiles, catches his balance, and puts his hands up in the air, roller coaster style.

Big guy demonstrating the new skills - sorry for the angle, I was taking them on the sly so he would leave the camera alone.

Yep, I'm pretty proud of myself.
