In this edition of KID ART, the picture on top is
Maddie was proud of this piece of art because she colored in the lines so well and used appropriate colors for the leaves and branch. (Not so much for the birds nest, but we liked the psychedelic acid dropping fairy too.)

We were going to just give the Easter Bunny these cookies, but Zak suggested we provide a larger incentive in order to get more out of the bunny. Our Easter Bunny is from Texas, y'all and he likes Shiner Bock and Pecan Pie:
We also played with the Casarones (confetti eggs) inside when we were told not to:

We've had a busy end of March/early April. We're refinancing the house, building a deck at the lake house, potty training, dealing with a two year old diva's behavior, Easter, getting ready for our cruise, and oh, yea WORKING to pay for it all. I've been traveling for work in the past two weeks too. Yea, busy and lazy.
The problem with waiting so long between blogs is that I forget to tell you stuff. I take photos, but forget about the funny story that I was gonna write about it. Then when I try to write the stories, I just lose interest. Take a look at the Tweets because I'm pretty good at capturing the short snip its of my silly life with you both.
Brooke, you've been talking up a STORM lately. It's your "verbal explosion" time. You are often telling some joke, making faces, or trying to somehow be funny. I guess you've always done this, but it's just now that we understand your sense humor! You've got us cracking up. When you're in a BAD mood, you're just cranky and whiny. This month at school you've gotten in trouble for biting another kid and also being "crabby" to your teachers.
Maddie, you have been doing well in school, telling lots of stories about things you recall (you remember EVERYTHING). You'll ask me if I remember a story about something that happened two years ago! I can hardly recall what I ate for breakfast, but you remember that PaPa and Susan gave you a Dora tent for Christmas two years ago.
And also a "hand rail system" as Zak calls it (think: safety fence) along the most dangerous parts of the property:
We had a great Easter this weekend, and I will post some ADORABLE videos in the next few days of our celebrations.
