Easter 2011

We had a wonderful Easter.  It was actually warm up here in the frozen tundra, so the boys got to wear something cute and Springy for Easter.  It was so nice to go to church with our parents and the boys.  I wished we lived closer to everyone so we could do that more often.   We hope everyone had a wonderful day. 

Pre-Easter Fun

Both sets of our parents got to come and visit for Easter weekend.  It was very busy and the boys definately got spoiled!!   Last night was so quite at the supper table, because it was just the 4 of us again.  The weekend was filled with egg hunts, a rained out Twins game, and lots of playing.  We are so lucky we have great parents who always want to be around Colton and Chase.  We love all of you.

Chase is 18 months old!

 Our little Chase bug is 18 months old today.  I can't believe it has gone by this fast.  It seems like yesterday, he joined our family.  He is definately developing his own personality!!!  He is very independent, and loves to do everything that Colton is doing, like standing on the arm of the couch and jumping off!!!  He is going to give me a heart attack.  I love his dimples and the way he gallops around the house chasing after Colton.  I love when he picks up one of his dinosaurs and "roars" at Colton.  He loves, loves, loves to be read to and several books have the cover off of them because they have been toted around and read so much.  He is not a big snuggler right now during the day, but he loves to snuggle with Casey at night.  So not fair!!!  He loves Barney, Fresh Beat Band, the Wiggles, and The Wonder Pets.  He loves to jump and we predict he might be a state champion in the long jump!!  He loves to dance and it is really a sight to see him and Colton dancing with huge smiles on their face in the middle of the room.  He is just starting to sleep and love on stuffed animals.  He loves his dog and duck (aka Clifford and Max the duck), graciously lent to him by his brother.  And speaking of dogs, any dog or duck he sees on tv or in a book, he spots immediately with a forceful point of his finger and a lively "Dog" or "Duck."  He gets a kick out of saying his animal sounds and thinks it funny when he runs and kicks the ball, especially if it bounces off Colton.  We love our little Chaseybug, as Colton calls him.  

Mouth full of crackers!!

Up to something.

Getting ready to jump.
Giving Lucky a hug.
