Eggs, Bunnies, and Jesus, Oh my!

We had a fabulous Easter season with lots of egg hunts, bunny rabbits, and celebrating Jesus' resurrection. 

Our first Easter Egg hunt we hosted at our house for a small play date with friends!

Somehow I got conned into being in charge of our new neighborhoods Easter Egg Hunt! I think there were 2000 eggs!

We spent the day before Easter at BB and Bups house with cousins. We had a delicious dinner and egg hunt. 

We woke up Easter morning to find the Easter bunny payed the girls a visit!

Maggie celebrated the day by being called on the big screen for us to come get her for the first time...little stinker!

After church we met with My Uncle Philips and Marty for some loving and sweet Easter treats. We took great naps and headed to Nonna and K-Pas for another Easter Egg hunt and yummy dinner!

My grandmother always gave all of the grandchildren bathing suits each year, so Nonna continued the tradition!

Funny Uncle Travis had fun with the girls as always...

We also had a fabulous first birthday for sweet Mary Bryant and another Egg Hunt!

The best of all is being reminded of the horrible death our Jesus endured and the joyous celebration that He is RISEN! Amen!

Jumpin' Bean

Our oldest nugget started gymnastics 2 months ago and is LOVING it! She does her "nastics" all over the house now. She can do handstands on the wall, jumping and flipping around, and is the cutest little thing in her leotard!

It makes my heart explode when I see her out there in the gym, as I was a gymnast when I was younger. It is amazing how much love fits in my heart for our girls! I. CANT. EVEN.

Happy St. Pats!

We had an uneventful St. Patrick's day, but definitely a good one. We started the day off in our green and Mae went on to school after her morning book of choice, our wedding book. Ha!

Maggie and I went for a walk at my old stomping ground from high school, Star Lake. 

She is slowly coming out of her dairy allergy, we THINK, 
so she celebrated with a little yogurt drink! 

We celebrated uncle Garrett turning 30 on St. Patrick's day this weekend at BB and Bups house with a yummy dinner and cake!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Love day!

I know, Valentine's was awhile back! We moved, so I blame that on everything these days...We loved celebrating each other on a date night while the grandparents babysat, and then we had a great Valentine's Day with our two little LOVE bugs!

We loved getting Valentine's cards in the mail from aunts, uncles, and grandparents. 

Mae had a great Valentine's Day party at her new school!

We loved celebrating our LOVE of Jesus on the actual day of Valentine's at church and with a lunch after with Nonna and K-pa. We feel so loved by family being close now, both grandparents, and cousins and more! Happy Valentine's one month late!

IKEA hack.

We are finally getting settled in our new home with all of our old furnishings from our Charlotte home and a few new purchases we have bought. It's been fun using what we have but in different ways around the house and making this new house a home and cozy!

I was looking for a cute settee for our front porch for the girls and I to sit out and have afternoon snacks or wait on daddy to get home from work. I found this adorable set at ikea and slapped a little cream paint on it to spice it up a bit and help it stand out a bit.

I found almost the same set, but with a round table for $600+ and am proud to say ours was just $50! 

Love a good ikea hack!

Roller Coaster Riding

Life has been nothing but a complete up and down for us for the past 6 months...from baby ear infections, Ryan switching companies, moving 4 states away, living out of grandparents houses, car problems, switching Mae's school, and many more positives AND negatives (too many to list). Here is our biggest update:

We are BACK under contract on our old house (the first contract fell through) and we plan to close March 4! Praise God!

And we are living in our NEW house! We are desperately anticipating the arrival of all of our furniture in Charlotte (Feb. 23rd ish) and can't wait to put all of this behind us! 

Thankful to all of my prayer warriors for getting us this far. Prayers for our house to close smoothly and on time, and for life to be EASY and SIMPLE again! 
(I can hear God laughing at me now)
