March Madness

**Disclaimer: this post has nothing to do with college basketball.**

What have we been up to this month?  We've had some really beautiful, warm days.  We try to take advantage of those as much as possible.

My mom and mother in-law came up for most of one week and we had such a great time.  Mostly, they watched my kids while I got a lot of stuff done, so I didn't get many pictures.  One of those days, we had my niece, Murry, and my mother in-law and I took her and Annabel to the park.

After Whitt woke up from his nap and Adeline got home from school, we walked to another playground.  It was one of those days where we just couldn't waste any daylight hours indoors.

That evening, Shane, Juliet, and Murry ate dinner with us.  I tried to let Whitt try some icing from my cupcake, but he stole the whole thing.  His first birthday is going to be a little anti-climactic.  Hah!

Adeline's sweet teacher sent me this picture of her and her friend, Annalyse.  Love those two girls!

Jon and I, along with some friends from our small group, took a dancing class one night.  Adeline thought it was hilarious when I told her what we were going to do and she said, "What in the world?!? You don't even have any dancing clothes!  You need to at least wear a dress!"

Jon was dreading it, but he ended up really having fun and really learning a lot.  My face hurt from smiling by the time it was over.  This man right here loves me!

We took the kids for some Easter pictures one Saturday.  I still haven't gotten the real ones off the CD I got, yet, but here are some I snapped with my phone.

We got a sitter for Whitt one night and took the girls out to see Cinderella.  I loved it, but it was a little slow for Annabel.  She paced a lot toward the end.

Whitt is happiest at mealtimes when he can feed himself, so that's what we try to do, even though he usually makes a huge mess.

This month, it was Jon's turn to take Adeline on a date.  They went to lunch and then bought her a new big girl bike and went for a ride.  I'm loving this new thing we're doing!

Adeline got her eyes all checked out for Kindergarten.  She's a bit far-sighted, but that's totally normal for this age, and not bad enough to need glasses.

On St. Patrick's Day I had to break out Whitt's green Chuck Taylor's.

We dyed eggs with the Davis kids.  So much craziness, but so fun!

I experienced a first the other day.  I was shopping in Target and I went through the food aisles to find Easter candy for the kids' baskets.  When Whitt noticed we were among food, he spit out his paci, started screaming, and signing "more."  I had to open up some granola bars and feed him right then and there.

We met some friends at Little Giggles one Friday morning.  Annabel and Reagan really enjoyed playing together.  They both miss their older siblings when they're at school.

We celebrated Mrs. Ruble's birthday with her class that afternoon.  I love how excited kids get about birthdays, even when it's not their own.
