Easter Fun!!

We had a fun filled easter weekend. Saturday the kids enjoyed our children's easter party for our church. They played games, dyed and hunted easter eggs. Of course Sunday was church, and we had lunch with some of our friends from church. Do you see the cute dress Isabella was wearing? Well that is not the dress she actually went to church with. She decided that she wanted to change dresses, and she let me know by pooping all over that one. Needless to say I was a little late for church. Oh the joys of parenting!! enjoy the pics...

Kiss Me, I'm Irish....

ok, so I am only a small percentage Irish, but it is the thought that counts!! Actually, Elijah's kindergarten class had to create leprechaun traps so they could catch the leprechauns. This is what Elijah came up with. the small bowl is filled with cut-up Mardi Gras beads. He told me that the leprechauns would think that it was gold, and they would fall into his trap. The leprechauns left a note telling the children that they loved their traps, but leprechauns are harder to catch than you think. They instead left the green tokens inside their traps. Oh the imagination of those kindergarten teachers....

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's....

A HUGE KNOT ON HIS HEAD!! Ok, so have you heard the saying "Never put a boy wearing superman pajamas on the top bunk" Well if he is wearing the underwear, don't let him leave the house!!!! You see, a couple of weeks ago Elijah and a buddy decided that there was something on the ceiling of the classroom at church that needed to be removed. My son is not the most "graceful" person in the world. So when he and his buddy climbed onto the table to retrieve this item, it did not take gravity long to take effect. Soon, he came tumbling down. His face was fortunate enough to break his fall. The bad part is, the item the face hit was the corner of another table. I have not seen a knot swell so big. It hit him right in the middle of his eyes just above his nose. He looked like something off the movie Mask with Cher. FREAKED me out.

I contemplated taking him to the doctor, but I was a little afraid that they might call Child Protection Services. I can hear the questioning now:

"uh, Mrs. Burns, where you watching your son when this happened?"
"why yes, i watched him take a flying leap right off of this table."

Elijah has already had stitches in his eye from another injury. Dont ask....

The funny part was, his buddy watched all of this happen and continued to try and retrieve this item off of the ceiling. BOYS.....go figure!!

I am thinking of setting up an automatic withdrawal system at the doctor's office.

We finally passed our birth weight. We had her one month check-up today. She weighed in at 10.6 pounds. Bascially she gained 2 lbs in 3 weeks. She is our little "piglet." She just gets bigger by the day. She is starting to smile now, and make cute little noises. We are just thankful for everyday we have. Hope all is well with everyone.


Elijah has been very interested in golf lately. Mike decided to take him to a driving range to practice hitting some balls. When he actually makes contact (which is more often than not) he hits it really far. Hey, maybe we have a little "tiger woods" in the making. If so great!, he can pay for his own therapy. Abigail tried her hand at it too. However, she hit more dirt than balls. Oh well, at least she looked cute trying.
