The boys are growing - Peyton asked last week, "Mama - does the Easter bunny come down the chimney like Santa?" :) He also remembers the true meaning of Easter - that Jesus died on the cross (but it is very hard for a 3-year old to learn of baby Jesus at Christmas & adult Jesus dying just a few months later...a concept to discuss when he's older). Nolan is finally saying more than, "Mama, Papa, & ball"! Nolan now wants to mirror his big brother - he even tries to "pee-pee" in the potty like him! Ha!
I made my first solo trip to Kentucky with both boys for our spring break. Whew - let's just say we all survived - unhealthy snacks, lots of movies, & even a few spankings...not one of my proudest moments as a mama. But, we loved spending time with our new cousins - Laney & Luke!

We missed Carter's birthday party, but celebrated his third birthday by going to the Lexington Children's Museum. The boys had a blast!

We made it home safely to Papa (the trip home was much easier)! We are loving this spring weather & preparing our hearts for Easter Sunday. I am home today, a Sunday morning, with one sick little boy. As he sleeps, I have had time to thank God for his sacrifice - loving us unconditionally. In our weak moments as parents, I hope we all can remember our great God who loves us & cares for us! Happy Easter!
