Easter 2014

Well michael and I were both home for Good Friday.  The boys, who go to Christian school, were not.  Sam had an egg scheduled for that morning while Finn moped around, bummed that he got to do was take a spelling test.

Michael and I had planned to go watch Sam hunt eggs with his class, but we were too late.  Instead, we had lunch and then went to buy a new bedroom suit for the house.  Michael and I came to the conclusion that we needed a King sized bed, given how awful I am to sleep with.

On Friday night we went to the Friday night Easter Service at our church. 

On Saturday we attended Henry's 1st birthday party at David and Sharon's house, then we back to the Saturday night Easter Service at our church.  This go around I keep the nursery.

On Sunday we went to church with Gran and Pa.  Sam and Finn both sat mostly quiet during the entire service.  Sam was being very sweet and wanted me to hold him the entire time.  He really got into singing the Hymns.  He did a surprisingly good job at "Christ the Lord is Risen Today."  During the service Sam colored.  Since Finn is in Kindergarten we made him sit up straight and listen to the sermon.  He was devastated that Sam got to color and he did not.  He let out three (3) big sighs of frustration and then settled into his new fate.  

After church we went to Gran's for lunch and an egg hunt.  Henry found the golden egg.

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Mexico Beach

Today I embarked on my first ever “girls’ trip.”  I have always had friends that went with their other girl friends on beach vacations, but I have never been on one myself. 
The trip started at 6:30 a.m.  I kissed the boys goodbye (Finn woke up to make sure that he got a hug) and hopped in my newly cleaned van to head to Robyn’s house. I had originally intended to meet Samantha and Karen in Hendersonville, but I spent a little too much time with the boys and got behind.  Instead, we met at Robyn’s house a little after 7:00.
Once we all arrived, we packed up the van and set out for 109.  The van has really come in handy.  We were able to get all of our suitcases, bag, pillow, etc. packed neatly into the van with room to spare.

We officially hit the road at 7:30 – the destination – Mexico Beach Florida.  Samantha’s mom has a condo that she graciously let us rent at a ridiculously low price.  The crew consisted of Samantha, Robyn, Karen and myself.  Samantha sat up front with me; Robyn an…

Gatlinburg 2.0

In mid-June Finn and Sam accompanied Grandad and Gigi to Gatlinburg.  This is their second annual trip so will refer to it as Gatlinburg 2.0. Michael, Will and I were at home, so outside of some awesome pictures and few sweet phone calls, we don't have a great deal of knowledge about the trip. What I do know is that the trip started with hot Kristy Kremes.  Upon arriving in Gatlinburg, Finn asked if the "hot sign" was on.  Seeing that it was, they stopped in for donuts.

They also went back to Clingman's Dome.  They went last year, but I didn't pack long pants and jackets so they were pretty chilly.  It was also really foggy last year.  This year went as planned; the air was clear and the boys were warm.

One of my favorites!

Another favorite.

And . . . another favorite.

They went to Dollywood later than evening and then again the next day.

It amazes me how pop culture "savy" kids are at 5.  I was never that "in the loop."
