What were we thinking?!! Oh Delilah

Hello all. Sorry it has been so long since we blogged, but it has been busy yet uneventful around here. We have spent the last few weekends gardening, going to the beach, running, and all sorts of other outdoors things. We also saw a lot of old friends at a memorial for Adam, our classmate that gave his life in the line of duty. Thank you Adam for your service and sacrifice.

So I guess we got bored with the everyday goings on and we accidentally got ourselves a new family member. A little girl to offset all the testosterone in the house...welcome Delilah.

Quotes from the mouthy one;
  • Mommy I have a sore bum bum because I toot so hard.
  • After I thanked him for bringing my my phone; "No worries Mamma"
  • Just one kiss Mamma, but no more.

Easter and more birthday

So the week before Easter was a productive one. Everett and I finished taking off the lower cabinets in the kitchen and painting them. Everett was a great painter, as you can see below.
After finishing this project and all the clean-up that came with letting a 3 year old help paint, we had another project to tackle. De-watering Grammi and Pappis basement after the worst flooding in the northeast since 1982. It wasn't too bad and while Mommy and Daddy worked, Everett got to watch toonies and Jack gorged himself on graham crackers.
Well Easter came with some nicer and drier weather. We had an Easter Egg hunt at Grammis. Auntie Claudia helped Jack out a bit.

Jack stole some eggs from Everett when he wasn't looking.

And the Easter Bunny dropped off some sweet baskets (I think Auntie Claudia and Uncle Danny helped him pick). Grammy also had some baskets dropped off at her house and he made a trip to our house as well. The boys made out like bandits...

And then we celebrated all the march birthdays. Doesn't Jack look just adorable.

Here is the favorite (and loudest) gift.

Tell me this isn't the coolest cake you have ever seen (the food channel doesn't count). Oh you can't. Well Auntie Claudia and Uncle Danny made this feat of awesomeness in honor of the boys' birthdays (including pappas). It really puts my orange chocolate chip truck cake to shame.
