Easter Egg Hunt Surprise

Sierra and I braved East Cobb Park Saturday to go see the Easter Bunny and go to an egg hunt. Basket in hand, we were ready! The plan was to run down the side of the field and start at the other end to get a head start on the eggs down there. Sierra was a champ and scored 6 eggs! She was thrilled with all the candy she got!

We had so much fun and its always good just to play with my girl.

Easter Bunny pictures soon to follow.

(don't even ask who this little girl is. She decided to smile when I said to Sierra, "Smile!"

Spring Flowers

Sierra and I got ambitious this weekend and, in taking advantage of the good weather, decided to plant some flowers for our doorstep. We took a little trip to Home Depot, where we ran into Grampy, and Sierra was so excited to have such a large selection to choose from. She giggled the entire time because she was so excited the decision was all her's (or so she thought). She was set on all purple flowers but I pursuaded her to mix it up a bit so we ended up with white snap dragons, pink tulips, and some other flower that I can't remember.

When we got home we pulled out the GIGANTIC bag of dirt (that says it will feed my plants for up to 4 months so hopefully they don't die) and realized we didn't have any shovels. Si ran into the house and produced two big kitchen spoons and we got to work.

We had three pots and with our little spoons it took us FOREVER to scoop all the dirt into the planters but we got filthy dirty and had a fabulous time doing it. Sierra didn't quite understand why we had to fill them up but she was fine with playing with the dirt. She switched spoons often because she thought mine was scooping more dirt than hers was.

When we had the pots full she patted down the dirt to make it even before we put the plants in. Her favorite part was pulling the flowers out of the plastic holders and squeezing the dirt and roots apart. She's grab onto them so tightly and make a funky face and say, "sssssqqqqqqqqqquuuuuuuuueeeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzeeeeeeee", then put them in a pot. She's hilarious.

When we were all finished she stood up, held out her hands and said, "just look at the mess we have made!"

Great day with the Bug! Check you the fruit of our labor. It's been 5 days and they are still alive!

Dear Uncle Brian

About a month or so ago, Sierra and I had a little fun with paint and made paint footprints on paper just for kicks. We turned one of her foot masterpieces into a letter to her Uncle Brian who is serving a mission on Honduras. It went a little something like this:

Dear Uncle Brian,

"Happy Birthday" (even though it's not your real birthday) I really like birthdays. I just turned 2 1/2 on January 15. . I also wanted to say "Ugh" to you...just because.

Just in case you forgot about me, my favorite color is green eggs and ham. My favorite game is Matchy Match on mommy's iPhone. My favorite toy is my play kitchen. My best friend is not Goliath, it's Steve from Blues Clues.

I love spinning and doing twirls and practicing my "spits" (Splits - like Savannah). I'm the cutest baby my mommy knows and my daddy's "stinkin' Binkin'". I love Frosty the Snowman. My favorite thing to say is "Bah-be-ah" because no one knows what it means, not even me. When I put my flowery sunglasses on, I turn into Prince Charming from my favorite show Super Why.

I liked painting you a picture with my feet and I would like to do it again soon.

Florida or Bust

Joe and Sierra left super early this morning for SPRING BREAK 2010! Florida or Bust. Before jumping on the highway Sierra informed her Daddy that she'd like some food so they made a quick Chick-fil-A run, at her request, and off they went. This baby really travels in style. She has everything she needs and her Daddy wrapped around her finger.
Have a great time guys! Don't think about me too much slaving away at work and going home to an empty house. =(
