I hate to admit that in the past I watched this show. If I saw it on while flipping channels, I will admit that I got sucked into it more than once. It had cute stories and catchy songs like this one:

After you have listened to the song all the way through and it is stuck in your head, I want you to do the following. Replace the word "song" with "post" and "singing" with "reading". Now, continue singing it while you read the post that never ends....

Funny Chloe quote--
Mommy, I am feeling better. Can I call Baby Jesus and tell him? Do you have his phone number? Then she starts laughing and says, "Babies don't got phones." Yeah, that's why that wouldn't work.

Early one morning, Jeremy heard the girls' door open which usually means we are about to get a visitor. No one came in so when I woke up later I was surprised to find this on my couch. Chloe asleep in her up and down shoes.

Hutch Modeling Sheawear

A few days ago we had a most terrible event in our house. One so bad that the girls were compelled to make signs warning passers-by of the danger. If you cannot understand what you are seeing, it says that there are crocodiles in our house. How they got here I do not know, and I also do not know how to get rid of them. They are quite peaceful so maybe we will let them stay.

Hutch turned 4 months old on March 29. I do not even know how that can be possible.

He is such a sweet little boy and we are beginning to see his personality emerge. He laughs a lot and has been talking to his toys the past few days. It is so funny to hear him get started.

***Ok I have tried about fifty bazillion times or twenty to add a video here but it will not work. So scroll down for the super cute video, it's worth it*********

Easter weekend was full of crazy good fun! We started off Saturday with an egg hunt at a local church. They always put on a good event and this was no different except for one thing--they had no water available. They served sandwiches and chips and had coke, diet coke, and sprite to drink. My girls don't like any of those and have only had sprite once. We normally stick to milk, water, or juice. So when her dry ham sandwich made her ask for water, Chloe was out of luck until a kind soul walked over to the church and found her a bottle of water. After that we went home and I attempted an Easter themed photo session for Hutch's 4 month pictures.

Chloe kept winking at me and, well, the smiles are either not there or way too much. There was a lot of fussing and grumbling from all of us. I managed to get a couple of good shots but not as many as I had hoped.

Then it was off to the gray house for cookie decorating and dyeing eggs. As soon as they were dry, the egg hunt to end all egg hunts was underway and slightly vicious.

Early on Easter morning, the girls woke up. I had not mentioned the bunny visit too often because he wasn't bringing a whole lot of stuff. I didn't want them thinking it would be a Christmas repeat. So when they came to find us, Jeremy told them that "he had a heard a noise in the house last night that woke him up" and I added "it sure did sound like hopping". With that the girls were off to find their baskets. They both got a new nightgown, coloring books, Polly Pockets, and a few other goodies. The Grow capsules have been a big hit. Hutch received a set of spoons and some new bowls. If the Easter Bunny hadn't forgotten, he would have received a box of cereal too because we are about to start the exciting journey of food. (I let him taste a green bean at dinner Easter Sunday and I think he liked it.)

After breakfast and a little bit of playing, it was time to head to church. We got all fancied up and headed out for pictures. I am not ashamed to admit that I prayed hard that the girls would smile sweetly and the pictures would be cute. I think it worked.

After church we headed to our favorite holiday destination, the gray house. We had a tasty lunch followed by some more egg hunting. There was even more competition at this one as some were filled with "COINS!!!!" The girls had fun but Finn gets a little too competitive sometimes. We had lots of good sportsmanship talks throughout the weekend. It's hard to be almost five.

And we are almost at the end...almost. The last exciting thing that happened this past weekend was this:

Hutch wore a very special outfit that is more precious to me than anything he has worn before. Why? Just because.
