Easter 2010

We enjoyed a beautiful relaxing day yesterday at my Mom's.  I showed Alexsa off at Alexsa and I went to church with my parents, then went over to Mom and Dad's for a ham dinner and great time with family.  Alexsa looked SO adorable in her Easter Dress!

After we ate the boys wanted us to hide eggs, but we were all feeling very lazy relaxing on the porch, so we hid them in the porch instead of in the yard. ;).  This made hiding much more fun, though, because the eggs weren't just sitting in the grass.  The boys LOVED it!  After they found them all they wanted us to do it again (of course.)  Denise said, "Why don't you hide them for the adults?"  You would've thought they were going to Disney - it was the best idea EVER.  So shortly after they ran into the living room we hear "READY!!!!"  Ashton and Braydon couldn't stand the suspense as we searched for eggs.  It was so much fun I think we'll do it again next year.  And Ashton was so smart, he remembered where they were all hidden to when there was just a few left he could give us clues as to where the remaining eggs were.

Alexsa was such a good baby all day.  She didn't sleep much, but was content just hanging out in her Aunts' arms or just laying on her blanket.  She even played a game of Hullabaloo with Aunt Christy and the boys and won! :)

By the time we got home it was about 8:00 and Lexie was quite cranky.  I figured she was tired so we tried to put her down with her binky, but she wouldn't have it.  That's what I get for not following the bedtime routine!  I picked her back up and walked around, but she wouldn't calm down. She was fed, changed and burped and still a fuss.  Sooo, what calms her down? Nothing.  Putting her on the floor blanket with her bink.  That's it.  She wanted to be left alone again.  Is this my kid??  Believe me, i'm not complaining, but seriously? It seems so weird how she prefers to just chill instead of cuddle.  But it worked out.  We had quiet time from 8:30-9:30, we fed and changed, and she went right down at 10:00, quietly falling asleep about 10:20.
