Happy Belated Easter!

Seems like we're a holiday behind...

G really enjoyed dying eggs this year. He was focused, particular and really careful. What a sweet guy.
He could've spent hours "watching" the eggs afterward, but they had to get back in the fridge before they sweat off all their color!
Pre-church hunt in the backyard:

"Found one!"

Yummy! Jelly bean. Sammy was hilarious. He was quite satisfied with the one egg he found and didn't feel the need to find anymore. Meanwhile, Guthrie was happy to find and eat all the goodies. Bri had the smart idea of filling most of them with cereal- we couldn't help but snicker when G exclaimed, "Oh look Mama! Cheerios!" like it was the best thing ever to find in an egg. That probably won't work for too long....

Big boy

Sammy's quite a big boy these days. He's gotten his first big haircut (which looks super cute, if I may say), and is chatting up a storm.

Oh yeah, Sammy's officially a walker too!

Considering potty training

Maybe he'll try, "tomorrow." Oh yes, classic Guthrie. Whenever we ask him when he would like to go pee in the potty he responds, "tomorrow" in a dramatic voice. G also wants to ride a jet ski, 4-wheeler, double-decker bus, have a cookie, or eat soup...tomorrow. He is awfully good at sit and sit and sit and sit and sit and sitting on the pot. Hey, it's a start.

So, here's to a great seat on which to read the comics and trying again...tomorrow.

Just some pics...since it's been so long and these boys are growing up!

Proof that I should never grow a mustache....ew.

Guthrie has loved puzzles for some time now. For Christmas, he got several special sets. He can't get enough. This guy asks to do each of these every day (sometimes a few times) and can do them all by himself!

Guthrie's hilarious: now that he's familiar with all the states, he will often point it out when he hears the name of one with a giggle, almost like someone's made some kind of joke and he's in the know. Case and point...we had on the Sunday morning news last week, a story about California was mentioned and G said, "California?!" in a voice like it was the most absurd thing he'd ever heard.
The body puzzle is made of 4 different layers featuring different systems of the body. Guthrie and Dad have named each of them and reference the layers every time: organs, muscles, naked boy (!) and clothes. Guthrie laughs at the "naked boy each time!"

ps- Guthrie has a new hairdo...he's channeling some MacGruber!
pps- G picked that outfit out himself
