Easter 2013

Early Easter morning, Ella was the first one to find her basket...

Then she helped Everett find his basket...

Next up was the "breakfast Easter egg hunt" (all the eggs were filled with Cheerios, raisins, Chex and yogurt bites)...

Then it was time for the breakfast they hunted!

After some breakfast quesadillas (yum), Everett tried out the scooter that the Easter Bunny brought...

After church, we went back to grandma's house for another Easter egg hunt, which was perfectly fine with Ella- she LOVES Easter egg hunts!

After naps, we went out for Easter dinner, but this is the only photo I got (Everett was not happy after bumping his head hard on the table!)...

Sell My House!

So, we want to list our house soon, but I wanted to spread the word to all my friends in case anyone knows a friend of a friend of a friend who is looking to move to our beautiful neighborhood!  If we could avoid realtor fees, it would help tremendously!!

The house is little over 2300 square feet.  3 bedrooms + an office and 2.5 bathrooms.  It very upgraded and turnkey.
  • Plantation shutters on every single window in every room.  
  • Beautiful dark hardwood floors. 
  • Upgraded carpet.
  • Custom crown molding.
  • Custom base molding.
  • Fully remodeled master bathroom with Carrera marble.
  • Remodeled kitchen with extra large island (unlike any other of this model!).
  • Custom entertainment center built-in.
  • Built-in BBQ and waterfall fountain in backyard.
  • No maintenance faux grass in backyard.
But the best selling point is LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.  We are in a guard-gated community with top rated schools.  We are on a cul-de-sac with great neighbors.  We are just a few blocks from the main pool, two parks (although there are several pools and parks to choose from in the neighborhood that are in walking distance!) and the elementary school.  We are also in walking distance to a shopping center with a grocery store, gas station, restaurants, CVS and of course a Starbucks!

Obviously, since this is a public blog, I'm not going to put our exact location or address, but any friends reading, please pass this information along to all your friends and neighbors!

Easter Egg Hunt

We had our annual Easter Egg Hunt today...we were sad that a couple of Ella's besties weren't able to make it, but it was such a fun time!!  We decided to do it at a park this year, which really worked out well- I think it might become a new tradition.  Oh how I LOVE me an egg hunt!

Before the kids were allowed to hunt, they had to pose for a group photo (we're only missing Jaxon and the two infants, Henry and Mia)...

Then they were OFF!  Love this action shot of Nathan, Hannah, Ella, Kendall and Olivia and Mason in the corner...

Ella did a lot of this...

Everett mostly did this (when he wasn't throwing the eggs OUT of his basket that I put in)...

Heading in after a tough hunt...

 Time to check out our loot!

Look mama!

The mamas (minus Carrie)...

Jen and I decided we "matched" because we were both wearing dresses and jean jackets. ;)

Some family shots...

Daddy and Everett...

Besties forever!

I know I'm not supposed to say this since one is mine, but are these three beautiful little girls or what?!
