Springtime Yellow

Today is Yellow Day at Hannah's school so she wore her yellow skirt and bow.  I dressed Olivia to match Hannah's yellow and gray (I love those two colors together!) and tried to get a few pictures before running out the door.

As soon as I put Olivia in the chair with Hannah, she had a huge grin on her face.  She loves her big sister!

Squeaky Clean

I am finding it very difficult to not always pick up my camera during bath time.  She looks just looks so sweet in her pink flower bath tub!  She has finally decided that baths aren't too bad now, as long as she doesn't have to get out!

I'd Rather Be in Walt Disney World

One of our good friends, Chad Brackeen, came and did a newborn photo session with us a couple of weeks ago.  He did a fantastic job capturing our family and little Olivia and we'd highly recommend him if you want pictures done! 

This is one of our favorites.  It was the last picture of the day and Olivia had decided she was finished!  We think it is just precious!  I'll post a few more from the session in the next few days.

Pretty in Pink

... and a bow as big as her head!

Easter Weekend

We had a busy Easter weekend, but it was a lot of fun!  Miss Olivia ventured out in public for the first time (doctor's appointments don't count!) for my family's annual reunion out at the Lake Cisco Church Camp that we have every Easter.  We sent Hannah ahead with my parents on Friday night.  She has been so excited to go out to camp again this year!  Chet, Olivia, and I drove out early Saturday morning and stayed until mid-afternoon.  It was great to not only be able to get out of the house for a little while but to spend time with my awesome family!

We also went to church for the first time this weekend with Olivia but I didn't get any pictures.  Of course, she looked precious in her bright, spring dress!

Here are a few pictures from the reunion.  Hannah had a blast, of course, and enjoyed having multiple people around to take her where she wanted to go.  She didn't even to walk at times thanks to Uncle Jonathan!

Hunting Easter Eggs

My sister also got engaged last week to an awesome guy!  We are so glad that he is going to be part of our family.  Hannah already adores him!  I took a few engagement pictures of them while we are out at the camp.  These are a couple of my favorites.  Congrats, Jamie and Tyler!

Playing Dress-Up

Having little ones to dress up is just as much as dressing up my dolls when I was little, except the dolls would put up with it for much longer!

Olivia took her first real bath last weekend.  She likes her bath when she firsts gets in, but not when I start cleaning her up.  This is one of the few things that we purchased new and wasn't passed down from big sister.  It is called a Bloomin' Bath and is a large plush flower that folds to fit into any sink.  I thought it would be great to have on our many travels instead of the bulky tubs.  So far, I love it and it is so cute (and so is the little one inside)!

Marshmallow Pops!

Hannah and I took advantage of Olivia's nap time today to try a new recipe that I found via Pinterest.  Marshmallow Pops!  We used those giant marshmallows, dipped them in chocolate and rolled them in sprinkles or graham cracker crumbs.  Ours didn't turn out as pretty as the ones in the original recipe, but we had a lot of fun making them together!


So very blessed...
