I have 17 days left until this baby makes an appearance (not that I am counting or anything) and I feel like I am going to make it. My dear friends, Kristen and Allie, are throwing me a baby shower and they wanted a picture of me with my huge belly. I obliged and took one before church while I was feeling good about myself because I was actually showered with makeup on! I went to edit it last night and started laughing because of the lack of teeth I have! My face gets SO SWOLLEN (and just fat) at the end of pregnancy. I was laughing about it and mentioned it to Parker. He said he couldn't tell a difference from a few months ago to now. Well, here is the proof. The first picture is from December, and the second, just yesterday. 17 more days...17 more days....

Easter Baskets!

Easter was a total success this year. Colton is getting older and is able to understand the significance of the holiday which is pleasing to Parker and I. We had little talks with him about the celebration of Easter and he seemed to understand bits and pieces. The boys got a few fun things in their baskets (chocolate bunny, new hot wheels, pens). I opted for art supplies this year (crayons, colored pencils, glue sticks, etc.). They will sit at the table and cut paper (yes, just cut!) with their new scissors for an hour! They love making brown paper bag puppets so the googly eyes that I bought them were a huge hit!

Easter Egg Hunt

Our friends, the Bell's, hosted a BBQ and Easter egg hunt at their home the day before Easter. The kids had a great time gathering eggs and playing with friends. The weather was perfect and the boys LOVED wearing their new hats. It was a perfect Easter weekend.
