There was much rejoicing

Once upon a time there was a beautiful store full of fanciful, lacy things for girls to wear and boys to admire. This wonderful, magical place was called Victoria's Secret.

Unfortunately, there were some girls that were left out of the fun. Those distressed damsels had to wear horrid bras that left their girls sad and saggy. They were nursing mommies.

Then one day, a wonderful thing happened. Vicky S decided to open their garter-strapped arms to all and introduced a brand spankin' new line of nursing bras. There was much rejoicing!

...until, the goblins at corporate decided there wasn't enough immediate support of the wonderful new bras and took them away again. The wailing, weeping, and gnashing of teeth could be heard throughout the land {and I don't mean from the teething babies}.

So, the nursing damsels complained and whined and complained some more {they had been taught by the best-they were mothers of toddlers after all}, until one blessed day, they were finally heard! That was the day Victoria's Secret brought back their nursing bra...and that day is now!

You heard me right. Now go get yourself one here!

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words II

...although, as you know, I can't ever resist adding more than a few of my own.

Apparently, Georgia has come of age and now thinks she's old enough to wear makeup. This picture doesn't even do it justice. There was mascara e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e.
Thank heavens for wet wipes that get mascara out of basically everything. Except for the wet wipes box, which oddly, they didn't.

This is the Thelma to Georgia's Louise

The Ward Easter Egg Hunt

Ezra meandered his way through the hunt, discussing whether the candy inside was chocolate (ie: forbidden) or not (ie: safe), what the color of the eggs were, and tossing the occasional egg back. Georgia, on the other hand, was all business. That girl had so many eggs collected in the first three minutes that her little purple basket couldn't hold them all and was leaving a little trail of dropped eggs behind her.

Georgia gathering her loot

Scarlett looking oh-so-thrilled about the whole extravaganza

Ezra pausing before the sugar rush fully kicks in (note the self-written nametag; he was verrry proud of it)

A cute picture of my daughter that I managed to screw up by leaving the camera cord down [insert eye roll here]

A horrid picture I took of the cutest little boys, Jared and Nathan, who traded their allergy-friendly candy out for Ezra's chocolate (thanks again, Annie!)

Scarlett caught in the act of sucking on some of the kids's (wrapped) candy. She must've been getting some sugar through the paper because this was one of many she managed to get ahold of and latch onto.

The (drumroll, please) Easter Outfits

The only picture I got all Easter where all three kids were (kinda) looking at the camera, which is no small feat, believe you me.
You make it look waaay too easy, Steph.

I know, I know, the lighting is horrible, the top of Ezra's head is cut off, and you can see my hand, but don't they just look adorable?

You know, one of those screeching, wailing, shrieking things? I think I've pretty much turned into one.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas March. grrrr.

Last week, kind of out of the blue, we had a storm come in and drop a whopping three inches of snow. It gave us a nice excuse to break out the hot chocolate and have one more chance to play in the snow. If you have to have snow in the Spring, however, it's nice when it's the kind that melts off in the 65 degree weather the next day ;)

Georgia, enjoying the freeezing weather

Ezra, helping daddy build a snowman

Once there was a Snowman, tall, tall, tall!

In the sun he melted, small, small, small!

(Actually, I'm a big liar. This particular snowman didn't slowly melt. He fell over because the snow was so darn wet and heavy. However, in my defense, right after he fell over, they went out front and made a different one. That one really did melt small, small, small.)
