On saturday we went to an Easter egg hunt. It was fabulous!!!! There was free Coney Island hot dogs with chili and cheese, chips, and juice boxes to eat. There was a live DJ. He was really corny...but the perfect personality for little kids to enjoy. To make it better for the kids he did a lot of interactive games with them to get them more involved. He had dance contests and scavenger hunts. There was also some face painting. It was a fun activity to take the kids to. So, for your viewing pleasure here is a video of the events.

Today was the easter festivities at the local library. They have story time, and singing time and then they let the kids have an easter egg hunt. They are empty easter eggs that they turn in when they go back into the library in exchange for a goodie bag. This is something that we have done ever since we moved here to Crosby. It has become a great tradition.

Look at how fast he is.....

Baby Shower

I have some amazing friends that went above and beyond with a baby shower for the baby. The cake was amazing, the fountain was awesome, and the edible decorations on the jello were fabulous. I can't believe all the work that they went into and I truly felt blessed that they would do it for me. I know that I am running out of time, but I just have a couple more things to do in order to get the baby's room together and then he can come. Thanks to everyone that made me feel special. You guys are awesome!

Busy, Busy, Busy.....

Howdy Partner! Last friday was Go Texan day at Crosby Kindergarten. They had square dancing during motor lab and learned all about the history of Texas. The kids were able to dress up as cowboys and cowgirls. Mya was soooooo excited about the pink boots and the BEAUTIFUL skirt that she was able to ware.

We also celebrated Gerald's birthday on Friday. It was actually on Saturday, but we weren't able to do anything on that day so we moved it up. Quote from Gerald's facebook, "Had a great day....we actually celebrated my birthday yesterday. Went out to eat @ Iguana Joe's and afterwards saw our school put on a play: Annie (7 out of 10) if I had to rate it... Shout out to my lovely wife and friends and family for making a brother feel quite special this day."
We got him a couple of things for his birthday... here are a few pictures of him opening up his ties and cologne.

I have been busy trying to prepare for the new baby. I am starting to feel rushed and out of time. There is only 4 weeks left!!! This last weekend we decided to switch things around with the kids rooms. Keegan was in the front of the house next to the garage and right over our bathroom, so when Gerald was getting reading and after he pulled out of the garage Keegan would think that it was time to get up. We moved him to the back, dark corner of the house and it has really helped. We also moved Mya to a bigger room and she is now a princess and the pea on a queen size bed. Both were extremely excited to change rooms. It was a lot of work though. After changing some furniture around I made some curtains and hung them up. Here is a fuzzy before picture of Mya's room and and after picture. Unfortunatly, I didn't think to take a before picture of Keegan's room, but there is an after one.
