We recently found a new book we like at the library, Quick as a Cricket by Don Wood (author of the Napping House). It basically goes through lots of different animals ("I'm quick as a cricket. I'm slow as a snail..... I'm as small as an ant, I'm as large as a whale..."). I read the book outside the other day and had the kids act out being the animals. Lydda Grace really got into it (as evidenced by her faces below!), Wade mostly just ran around a lot :)
Wade climbed out of his crib- twice- yesterday during nap time... cue "big boy bed." He was a little wary of sleeping in the bed until Lydda Grace said that SHE wanted to sleep in it. One thing led to another and Jon and I caved and let them sleep together in the double bed. They talked and laughed for 10-15 minutes or so and then they were out and slept all night!
Lydda Grace usually has a nightlight but Wade won't sleep well with one. She asked if she could have one and Jon told her that she could not if she was sleeping with Wade. She said "that's okay I'm with Wade and I can pray to Jesus!"
|The kids loved making "Easter Mountain"|
|Lots of fun playing Uno Moo with Granna Wylie and Mr. Richard|
|Easter morning! These are the outfits I made for them last year|
... which means they must have been really big on them last year!
|This was about the only egg Wade hunted... he'd much rather just play!|
|LG is a great egg hunter!|
|With a little help from Granna Wylie|
|as I said... he'd rather play and get dirty!|
|An Easter afternoon walk.... beautiful day!|
