River at 2 Months

River had his 2 month appointment today a few days after his 2 month birthday.  He had to get shots, which reportedly, he took like a man!  He weighed a whopping 12.3 pounds, and was 23.5 inches long putting him in the 58th percentiles for both.  What a big boy!

Windy, Windy

We always say a little prayer that we'll have a storm that will ruin our roof but not hurt anyone or anything else.  So far this has not happened.  But this weekend we had just enough wind to knock a few limbs down and get us a good tree trimming.  We were lucky that it fell just inches from my car.  But dang it, FALL ON THE ROOF next time!!

Here are a few shots of the clean up.  I think Dustin was in hog heaven getting to use power tools.

Here's a big limb that needed cutting back.

Dustin's cousin Adam helped with the removal.  In fact, Adam brought the chain saw, trailer, ladder and a lot of man power to help.  We took him out for lunch after and there he provided lots of entertainment for Reese!

Some of the large debris.

And the limb that came inches to ruining my car.

And of course the Project Supervisor.  Isn't she precious?

Easter is such a nice holiday.  It marks the beginning of spring for me and it's a great holiday for kids having fun.  I love all the spring food too, asparagus, peas, ham, yum!  I also really like going to Saturday night mass, but it is like 3 hours long and I have small children so we may have to wait a few years before we venture out to that one. 

Our Easter weekend was full of fun, eggs, yummy food, and family.  We really enjoyed ourselves.  I'll sum up our weekend as I go with pictures. (They loaded in reverse order, so I'm gonna go backwards)

Here are my loves, home and tired but still took out some Daddy time!

Maggie and River after the Easter Bunny brought Maggie her cool glasses.  Don't they look sweet?

Reese and River in their Easter best.  I had to threaten Reese to take this but she did and I'm so glad because they look so sweet together.

Mags and Reese with some of their loot, we got lots of smarties, I stopped counting at 30!  Wowza!

This was what Riv did while we were finding eggs.  I wish I would've taken a nap instead too.

Reese on the hunt for Easter Ecks!!

River all dressed up in his tie.

Reese with her gymnastics ribbon.  She thinks you should squeeze your eyes shut to take a picture.  Silly girl!

3 little sweeties in a dog pile!

Reese and River in the shirts I made.  Just write what you want with gel glue, let it dry and then dye them with RIT.  They turned out great and here she is again with her silly "cheese!"

My handsome nephew getting a smoocheroo from Reese.

This is pretty much River's entire weekend.  But I don't want to forget about him in pictures!!

Reese stuffed in one too many Laffy Taffys!!

Lulu, Jason and their cute, cute, cute boy, Deakan.

Deakan was SOOOOO mad that he couldn't hold all the Reese's eggs at one time.  He doesn't even eat peanut butter but he was a little sad that he couldn't get them all.  We thought it was HILARIOUS!!

Reese hunting eggs with her fancy Easer basket.

Deakan as he discovered Reese's eggs.  Just precious.

Happy Easter season, Everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend!!

Gymnastics Night!

Last weekend we were invited to a sweet little girl's birthday party at a gymnastics arena.  It was a blast!  We were lucky enough to have Maggie all weekend too so the two girls partied it up and River had a great time hanging with all the ladies who were ooohing and ahhhing him.  (He is very handsome).  We left and took the kids out for pizza and they played Old School Pac Man in the arcade.  Overall, it was one fun weekend, we really wish Maggie could come stay for about a week!

And just because he wasn't featured earlier, here is my little cutie patootie sleeping at our wonderful babysitter Angie's house. What a hunk!
