Cannonsburg

Yesterday we went to Cannonsburg in Murfreesboro.  It was make-up picture day and I had to be there to run things.  The kids thought they would be bored but they had a fun time running around.










I really have a lot on my plate right now.  I have 2 weeks to create the yearbook and I don't have all the pictures yet.  I have to get ready for my classes on Friday.  I also have to edit pictures for the 2nd Idol camp.  Did I tell you about that?  Ashley and I went last Sunday to watch the 2nd Idol camp perform, when we got there Ms. Cori looked at me and said, "Oh! I was going to call you about taking pictures."  I happened to have my camera in the car.  So I took pictures.  She called me her hero!  Anyway, I've got to get those pictures edited and to her pretty soon.

But what I REALLY want to do is scrapbook.  When Doris was here she introduced me to a scrapbook challenge.  You have to find specific items and then you scrapbook with those items.  Well I've gathered my kit but I haven't had a chance to do anything with it.  It's killing me.  It's just sitting there taunting me.

Easter 2012

And here we go, in no particular order the pictures from Easter day.
I really don't have much to say so I'll let the pictures do the talking.





























The Hammock

Easter afternoon we went to a friend's house for a party.  They have an Easter egg hunt for the kids and then they even have one for the adults too.  It is loads of fun.

Here are a few pictures from the hunt.  Aussie didn't participate because he is "too old" for that type of thing.  But I'll tell you what he was quite jealous when Ashley was one of two people who found the special carrot egg.  She won a $10 Giftcard to Target.



We were about to leave but they first all had to try the hammock.  They had a hard time getting on.  And the boys flipped off once they got on.





Her house is beautifully landscaped and we got LOTS of great pictures.  That is my next post.

Epic Fail AKA Goofballs


Getting a group shot is nearly impossible with triplets!  I threaten them!  "We are not leaving until I get some good pictures."  I bribe them!  "I'll buy you McDonald's French Fries if you cooperate." And if all else fails- I cry!  I usually end up with one good picture.  Here are a few of the pictures before I get a serious one.

Good Friday Part 2

 The other night when my friend Doris and her son G. came over I knew just what I wanted to do.  I had seen it in an email even though I couldn't remember for the life of me what email I saw it in.

I wanted to have a glow in the dark Easter egg hunt.  I had told Doris what I wanted to do so when it came time for me to stuff the eggs with glow sticks and candy I told her I was going to go camp out in the bathroom for a little bit.  Well...she didn't quite catch what I was going to do and you can imagine what she was thinking when I was in the bathroom for a VERY long time.

But look how adorable these eggs turned out.



We took them and hid them throughout the front yard.  Some were up in the trees and most were just scattered around in the grass.



I sure wish I could have gotten pictures of the hunt itself, but it was just too dark.

We lined the kids up and didn't tell them that they would be glowing in the dark.


Aussie didn't want to go.  He's "too old" for stuff like this.  But I knew he would like it.  And even though he pretended that it was only OK, I saw him out there.  He was running around laughing and having fun!  He got inside and said, "Kit Kats made it all worth it."



They came inside and opened their eggs.  Mason gets excited about anything.


But what was really funny, is that even though the eggs were mixed up all over the yard every single egg Ashley got had Kit Kats in them and every single egg G. got had chocolate eggs in them.


He was stunned. " It's not fair!" he said, embarrassing his Mom.  So Ashley and G traded a few of each so they could both have what each other had.

All in all it was fun!  And I plan to make this a tradition. 

Mason's Baptism



Today my son got baptized.  He is so precious and has the sweetest heart ever!  Mason  wanted to keep the tradition of the men in the family being baptized on Easter.  Aussie was baptized last year on Easter and many years ago Greg (their dad) got baptized on an Easter.

Above is a video (which might be bigger and better to view from the YouTube site) and here are a few pictures I took:






I love this sweet boy!!!
