Fishing party

This afternoon & evening our Sunday School class got together for some pond fishing & Easter egg hunting. We all had a blast. We ate fish too, but not what we caught. I feel like I put 50 worms on hooks helping out the kiddos (mine & others). Here are some highlight pictures.

Home sweet home

We are enjoying a great weekend at home now! Going to Poverty Point was fun, but we're all glad to be back home (especially Anna Catherine!). Here are a few after dinner pics.

Mini vacation day 2

I can't believe it's already time to head home! We had fun hanging out at Poverty Point. Last night after pizza we did a little more fishing & played some board games. This morning I caught a catfish while still in my pajamas! The fish really weren't biting so we packed up & let the boys spend another hour at the spray park. We drove by the beach to get an idea of what it was like for next time & now we're heading back towards home. We're gonna stop somewhere for lunch on our way. Here are a few more pictures. Anthony fell asleep & Joey is reading on my kindle. I'm sure Anna Catherine is asleep too. She slept great last night, but doesn't rest well in the daytime while we're away from home.

Poverty Point mini vacation

Since the boys are out on spring break we decided to take a small vacation to Poverty Point. We rented a nice little cabin on the water for one night. It was raining when we got here, but the boys had a blast at the splash park while Anna Catherine, Jason, & I sat in the covered shelter watching them. Now we're back in the cabin for the evening. The boys are watching spongebob, Anna is chilling in her play pen, & the grown ups are cooking a pizza. Here are a few pics of our day.

Pillowcase dress

This afternoon I finally attempted a pillowcase dress for Anna Catherine. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, but I feel like I need to let someone who knows more about these dresses look at it to be sure I don't need to modify anything. The best part? I used stuff I already had! One side is pink gingham with green trim on the bottom & the other side is green gingham with pink trim on the bottom. I'm thinking this may be her Easter dress this year, but I haven't decided for sure yet. Enough chit chat, let's get to the pictures!

A little change is better than none

Hey hey friends! Been a while huh? Playing house & taking care of baby girl don't give me much time to blog. Or do anything blog-worthy for that matter. I'm mainly here today to help myself. While I'm usually able to keep most of the house in decent shape, I've been just closing the bedroom door because I don't have time to tackle it. I'm finally sick & tired of it & decided I was gonna make a change somehow someway. Here's a before & after of part one--my rolltop desk. It's a small start, but it's a start. The pictures may show up in the wrong order, but it should be obvious which is which!
