Egg hunt at church on Saturday. Allyson and Claire were in one age group, Max was in another, so Emily and I split the picture-taking duties. Everyone came away with a basket full o' candy (er, I mean eggs). Max was perfectly happy with his eggs...then a well-meaning lady at church showed him that the eggs opened to reveal chocolate candy inside - oh boy! Had to quickly redirect him to keep him from devouring it all on the spot! ;-)

Decided to set the camera up and take a quick shot of the family after lunch. Not a great shot, but we're all in there for once....

Max had his first dental visit yesterday. Before we left home, I explained where we were going and what they would do to his teeth. The only problem was that I told Max about this early in the morning, so I had to listen to "We going to dentist?" at least a hundred times before his early afternoon appointment. :-O The appointment also coincided with nap time, so I was more than a little worried....Max is NOT fun to be around when he hasn't napped! lol (Had to take this appt. time as they only see new patients in the early afternoon.)

Max was first weighed, and then he climbed onto the exam table. He looked around and tried to quickly jump down (mommy is worried at this point, but kept encouraging him). The hygienist used a stuffed frog (with a beautiful smile) to show Max what they were going to do. Max was sold as soon as she showed him the water squirter! He then agreed to lay down, don the sunglasses, and opened his mouth (& asked for more water! lol). Max's teeth were successfully cleaned, and the dentist said his teeth look good. A new toothbrush, a little bouncy ball, two stickers and we were outta there! :-)

Spring Break 2010

Just realized I never posted about our exciting spring break. Actually, not so exciting...just a break (much, much needed break). We're doing some construction and landscaping around the pool, so that was our break. Emily was none too happy about our plans, because apparently *everyone* in her school (except HER) was going on a trip or cruise of some kind. ;-)

The kids returned from school on Friday, SO excited to play outside. The weather was lovely, there was no homework for a week, and the scooters were charged and ready to go. This was the action here on Friday afternoon/evening:

And THIS is what we woke up to on Sunday morning! A lovely covering of snow! I think we ended up with around 8" of snow by the time it stopped. It was beautiful, but we are all ready for spring.
