Two updates in the same month? What?
So we spent our Easter weekend in Findlay, I guess I never blogged about that. Not too surprising, I haven't been the best about staying on top of this thing. It was a nice weekend, fast and crazy with my whole family under one roof, but so fun and nice to see everyone, since we haven't gotten together since the beginning of December. Lily and Emma loved seeing Cameron, and since he really is the first baby Kaylee has seen since she started being so mobile and remembering who people are, she was enamored by him. Of course, she demonstrated this by smacking him on the head, pulling his hair and poking his eyes, but I think that just means, "I love you" in toddler/baby. He didn't seem to realize it either.
|we practiced "soccer ball" with Poppo. Lily didn't like it because Poppo kept getting in her way of the goal. how dare he.|
|dying Easter eggs! Lily was so concerned that we wouldn't be able to do this because Great Aunt Lynn wasn't there, but we assured her that while GAL makes it fun, it was still possible to dye eggs without her.|
And we got our yearly family picture taken, thanks to RWaymanPhoto.
|Emma just kills me in this picture. Kaylee is practicing her "dreamy and looking off into the distance, pondering life" pose. Lily looks SO big!|
|I asked Lily to sit on the steps so I could adjust my camera for the lighting. She did with fabulous flair.|
|Uncle Rich wanted in on the lighting help, and I'm pretty sure Lily's face says it all: "THIS guy. Ridiculous."|
And then we stopped in Zanesville to see Grandma and Grandpa Hildebrand on the way home, and have another Easter egg hunt, because you can never have too many. Lily was thrilled she found the golden egg and was the "winner," which she kept telling Emma. "It's ok that I won the golden egg, Emma, I still love you." "Do you want to see my golden egg? It's very special." etc. We apparently need to explain humility and how annoying bragging is eventually. But Emma took it like a champ and Lily let her hold The Egg too.

And now just two pictures I took recently that make my heart smile:
