It's Not Easy Being Green.

I have returned from the Green Mountain State and from a very colorful and enjoyable Easter with BF and family.

The highlights....


Spouse whining to me on the phone Easter morning when I told him he had to go hunt out his Easter basket.

"...but I'm Jewwwiiiisshh...."

Ha! Every year he says this and every year I hide his basket full of goodies that are so well, good, that he will be forced to retrieve them.


While nursing the baby I over hear this exchange in BF's kitchen...

The Terrorist: "What Daddy doing up there?"

BF: "He is changing out the light bulbs"

The Terrorist: "But why?"

BF: "He is changing them to energy efficient bulbs"

The Terrorist: "But WHY?"

BF: "So we can be green"

The Terrorist: (wailing) "BUT I DON"T WANNA BE GWEEEENNNNN!"


And finally for your viewing pleasure:

Drama Queen playing with Baby Riley (as she will forever be known, named so by The Terrorist and even I am calling her that now).

Yes it is your run of the mill cute video of my baby and my favorite kid...but just hang on until the end folks, turn up your sound and listen. Despite her claims otherwise that is indeed BF singing in the back ground...

...I can just imagine the booty shaking that was going on. Do you think I should cut her a break? It was her Birthday weekend after all.

I'm glad you had fun in, when can you come to CO?

Hubby's brother still calls the boy "Baby Ryan". It must be the sound combination or somthing.

My grandma has always hidden plastic Easter eggs around her house for the kids to find. They used to be filled with candy, but now that the youngest kid (my sister) is 15, she puts money in them instead. At 27, I'm still considered a kid, and I made $8.50 this year. Eric's one of the kids now, too, and he found a five dollar bill. Awesome.

Also, I think kicking baby feet in socks are one of my all time top 5 favorite things.

Aw, so cute! And I'm with The Terrorist - I don't want to be green either! So unflattering to the complexion. :)
