easter photoshoot

they are so much fun to take pictures of...

very close

maya and gemma

they might be

what you would call



a little too close?

hoppy easter

here are a few pictures from our Easter...

i must admit however, i am just not in the mood to edit pictures. i knew that i needed to do it before we leave for VA beach though so here are a few from our Easter sunday.

thanks gramm and pops for gemma's first Easter basket.
we just couldn't keep her out of it. =)

gemma had a great first Easter.
we are so excited for her to be able to understand the reason for celebrating Easter.
i have a feeling that it will be here before we know it.

we hope you had a GREAT Easter, celebrating our precious Lord's resurrection!

happy 1/2 birthday

CANNOT believe that our sweet baby girl, is 6 months old.

its true. she is growing soooo quickly.

sadly, we didn't really celebrate, eric and i just packed up our house while gemma took a nap.

she did however get a surprise call from her aunt jenni, who sang her "happy 1/2 birthday"
gemma loved it. she just stared at the phone and smiled. it definitely made her day.

maybe we will bake her a cake...okay, maybe we wont. even if i wanted to i would have to search all of our boxes because my cake pans are all packed away...as is the rest of our kitchen.

anyway....happy 1/2 birthday to the sweetest little gal on the block!
we love you.

look alike?

there is an ongoing argument....who does gemma look like.

maybe it isn't a huge argument...but what do you think,
does she look more like her madre or padre

it's too hard for me to tell, so i don't really have an opinion.

quite the little chatterer

gemma jaye is becoming quite the little chatterer.
she had started talking a while ago, but not very much... then... this morning when she woke up she just was talking up a storm. eric and i were just cracking up.

enjoy gramm and pops.... =)

friends, the park, and the lucky number 200

i think that spring just might be here to stay, finally.

this weekend my best friend and roommate from college days came down.

sunday afternoon was beautiful so we all went to the park together. when we got there the kids were enthralled by the game of horseshoes that was being played. it was fun to watch.

we were hoping to see a few ducks, but sadly, we didn't see any... i guess we will just have to go back another time and look for some.

we took a couple of family photos...

my mind is drawing a blank.
but before i sign off i will tell you the significance of the number 200...

this is my 200th post. (is 200th, even a word?)

can you read this?

no? well, i couldn't read it either.

this is the text that eric sent me this weekend with words under it that said...
"can you read what this says?"

so what does it say?

eric passed his last and final paper... he is completely finished with his accounting classes and now has a 2nd bachelors degree in accounting.

good job, babe!!

this could be the one

with only 2 days of house hunting under our belts we have decided on the one for us...

it has some great qualities that we L.O.V.E.

when we first walked into the house we saw a beautiful fireplace and the whole house had real wood floors!!!

there is some great storage space in some cabinets in the hallway and i love the unique shape of the hallway...it curves around to the 3 bedrooms...

it does kind of have an oddly shaped light fixture in the hallway, but we can remedy that fairly easily

the guest bathroom is beautiful...

and the master bedroom....well i love the color, although i might be repainting it anyway, just because i am slightly obsessed with decorating and cant wait to get started redecorating a new house the house is made of bricks and siding and as you can see there is a large backyard with a privacy fence all around it hopefully it will keep little pests out of it... we are praying that closing will be April 29

gems from gemma

i used to love noises like........ 'yeehaw' ' yahoo'........ *in a high pitched voice*

now, well, this is the new noise that i like for daddy to make.

mama and i took him his lunch today at work. we got to sit outside in the sunshine. everytime daddy would look at me and make this funny noise i just couldn't help but laugh at him.

he is pretty much my favorite!!

i can't wait for him to get home from work so we can play some more!

mean mom?

our little punkin got her ears pierced today

does that make me a mean mom? that i would pierce her little ears....i couldn't help it, they look so cute....... not that she needs any help in the cuteness factor, but it is just so fun to be a girlie girl!

i am so glad that eric let me do this. i had already told myself that if i didn't do it by the time she was 6 months...i wouldn't do it until she was a lot older. but, eric said that i could.

so gemma and i went to claires today with adrian and the kids and had it done.

the girl who did it was so nice and very accurate. (thankfully)

as you can tell by these pictures taken a couple of hours after the fact, she has fully recovered and is just as happy as ever.

so cute!!!
