One of my cousins got married outside at Nana’s house a few weeks ago – Parker & Adley decided to enjoy the ceremony from the swing :)

We have a tradition of eating breakfast for supper on Friday nights and Parker was SO excited to help me mix up the pancake batter!  He LOVED pouring the water in and helping me stir it all up!

sweet boy was so tired one day after school that he just climbed up in the chair with me and took a little snooze – I miss those afternoon naps with him!

watching Jeopardy and eating snacks from the car is a favorite after school activity :)

We finally broke down & bought a new mattress last weekend – ours had gotten really uncomfortable & neither of us realized how badly we were sleeping until our first night on the new one – so awesome!

I just love to turn around & see this sweet smile in the back seat of the car.

Annual bluebonnet pictures has to be one of my favorite Texas traditions.

We found a decent patch this year along some detention ponds in Sugar Land – though it was nothing like the patches we found last year, we still managed to get some pretty cute little pictures of our sweet boy.

Easter 2013

Easter 2013

We had such a fun Easter this year!  I love holidays and celebrations, as they give me an excuse to be creative and treat my little boy to something special.  We spent the entire weekend celebrating with our families :).

goodies for Parker’s friends at school and his cousins

Parker had an Easter egg hunt and early release on Thursday and then we were both out of school on Friday, so we picked up Gigi and spent the day playing at home.  We spent Saturday afternoon at Mimi and Poppy’s house where we got to hunt eggs again, open some Easter goodies, and have supper.  He definitely enjoyed the afternoon of playing and all of the attention :).

Saturday night, Gigi and Uncle Jake came over with more Easter goodies from them and Kappy &  Chief and he was having so much fun playing that it took almost an hour of rocking to convince him it was time to go to sleep.  Sunday morning we got up and got ready for church, opened his Easter basket from Mama & Dada and then went to church.  We actually kept him in church with us and he did great!  He seemed to enjoy the singing and looking around at everyone.

Happy 2nd Easter Parker!

our family of 3 :)

After church we loaded up the car and headed to Nana’s house for the afternoon to have lunch and Easter celebrations with everyone there.  Lunch, opening more Easter baskets and goodies, and Easter egg hunt #3 – it was a busy day!

He absolutely loved running through Nana’s yard looking for the eggs!
