anniversary, birthdays, and easter, oh my!

Oh - Where to start!  Last weekend was definitely full of excitement.  It all started with our 6th anniversary followed the next day by Cora and I's birthdays and then the next day was Easter.  It was a fun weekend to say the least!

After a fun night celebrating our anniversary with dinner and a movie, (I am terrible and never remember to take pictures of just Nate and I) we started the Birthday Celebration the best way possible - with donuts from the best donut shop in KC, Donut King.  We all gorged ourselves on delicious sugar treats and then headed over to our townhouse Easter Egg Hunt.  Sugar and more sugar!

Easter morning brought with it the annual hidden easter basket and Hayden was all over it.  He was beyond excited to find his basket filled with Cheetos, a Spider Man cup, and a new baseball mitt. Cora just wanted the chocolate Cadbury eggs.  Man that girl loved them!

The best part of Easter morning for me were the new Easter clothes for the kids.  There is nothing better than darling new clothes for Easter Sunday!

Because of the super crazy Easter weekend, we celebrated Cora's birthday on Tuesday night.  She was such a cute little 1st birthday girl.  I can't believe that a year has already passed since I first held her in my arms.  Oh what a year can bring.  She is now crawling all over the place, getting more daring with taking steps and showing off to everyone around!  I love my little Coco more than anything!

And Hay's not too bad either!

The Rainbow-Power decor.   I always have grand ideas in my head for a cute party and those ideas always fall remarkably short of their mark.  I mean look at that hysterical cake!  It so didn't turn our like I imagined!  At least I got a picture of it before I found 3 little kids with their fingers licking their frosting off!  But it tasted good, so I guess that's all that matters.

Cora also got her own little cake (funny as well!) and she started to really dig in but then decided that she didn't like to be dirty so she tried to rub her hands all over her face to clean them off.  Silly girl!

We were all tuckered out after our long weekend of fun - so much crammed into such a short span of time!  
We are so blessed!  Hope your weekend was as amazing as ours!Photobucket

What a fun blog! I got so homesick for missouri and for your family as I looked at all your pictures and activities.... you really can't appreciate the townhomes til you move. What a special place. And what a special family you guys have. We miss you dearly. Good luck with your move!
