Lots and lots of SPRING!

A lot to catch up on so this is going to be a long one! We have been so excited about the sunshine and that Spring is finally here!

The girls recently had a chance to be a part of the Junior League American Girl Doll Fashion show. It was a wonderful event that raised money for the new hands on children's museum at the Carnegie. Our cousins, aunts, grandmothers, great-grands, and even Daddy and Uncle Reagan came to see.

Gray and Charlotte (along with Elizabeth and Kit) played VIP parts of the show at intermission...they did great!

Mary Bradford was Ruthie. She loved it and learned all about every doll which will be great for our Spring Break trip to Atlanta....we can't wait!

Mary Bradford had her friend Fiona over for the afternoon before our neighborhood egg hunt and we found these at Target so they got busy quick! I didn't know 1st graders were so into detail and very artistic. So glad they were kind enough to let little sister join them....

The Roberts and Perrys hosted our neighborhood egg hunt complete with all our sweet friends. The young group hunted in the frontyard....and the big kids were in the backyard...I got a quick shot before they got the GO (and their were some SERIOUS egghunters with lots of experience)....we loved it!

After a fun filled afternoon, it was time to jump in bed so that Ebunny would come by..and he did!

We loved what he left....expecially our ZHU ZHU pet accessories!

I LOVE our church, but Easter is one of my favorite times of the year...we take flowers for the living cross and then have a wonderful service.

After church we headed to Mimi and Gandy's for another photo shoot while we waited on everyone to get here for lunch...which I loved that they are finally to the age they enjoy the family picture thing (sad they are growing up) but NO tears nor whining was nice:)!

At lunch we ran into a special guest and got to thank him for our goodies he left....Gray was very into Mr. bunny and gave him lots of love!

After lunch, it was back to Mimi and Gandy's house to play...1st thing was to get the dresses OFF ...then they decided to cartwheel in their slips for a little while..

then to celebrate with Carter, it was his real birthday...and he is 2!!

Cupcakes are his would never know this was like his 100th time to celebrate his birthday....still so excited!

then a little dress-up and more playtime..had to get Gray in her GARB...she loves to deck out!!

It was back to school, and I got to spend a day at the Zoo in Birmingham with Mary Bradford and her class. She decided the gorilla was her favorite!

I treasure all of these precious times with my sweet girls and already starting to realize time is going by too fast...
