Multiples Egg Hunt

We had our annual Plano Area Mothers of Multiples Easter Egg Hunt this past Saturday. My friend Amy and I were co-chairs for the event. Whew, it was fun, but we are glad it is OVER! It was held at Cottonwood Baptist church and it was great that the egg hunt was outside, but everything else was inside. It was SO windy that day! We had bounce houses, face painting, balloon artist, the Easter Bunny of course, crafts and food. Here are a few pictures.

Kate requested this mermaid. I was quite impressed with what this lady could make!

Gotta have a drink while you hunt eggs right?

Two Weeks of Floors!

Whew! We are almost finished. We have been working on new floors in our Kitchen, Laundry, Pantry and then wood floors in our Office, Foyer, Dining and Half Bath! It looks great, but what a mess to get here! Everything should be complete by Thursday, which I hope because the kids come home from Louisiana then! Our parents love our kids enough to keep them while we have been working on this project. I don't know what we would have done without their help. It would have been interesting if we had to keep 3 children ages 3 and under in a house with dust, fumes, wet paint, sealer and lack of ALL appliances. Thank you grandparents! Can you guess what I will be doing today and tomorrow until they get back?? CLEANING!! I know it will be worth it when the job is done. We will be enjoying our new floors for years! If you live in the area and need names of good workers let me know.

Day Out with Thomas the Train

Sunday afternoon we went to Grapevine, TX and got to ride on Thomas the Train! It was pouring down rain, but the kids had a great time. They had a tent set up with a model train, another set up with multiple train tables, one with Sir Topham Hatt, story telling area and a gift store of course. They were all so good on the train ride, Mason did ask me where Harold the helicopter was. Hummm, maybe they can bring him along next year! HA!

Kate with Thomas. Mason was not crazy about standing around in the rain to have his picture taken.
All of us on the train ride. They said the car was 80 years old!

Mason in his Thomas hat. He now has to wear it every day to school.

Happy Kate and Caroline.
