Easter, LTC, and Good friends
We have had a full couple of weeks! Last week our friend Jacob Hance called us from Louisiana and told us he was picking our good friend Tyler Ellis up at the Houston Airport in a few hours. We were so excited b/c the airport is about 10 min. from our house. When they arrived we went and had lunch for a couple of hours and caught up on old time! We were so happy to see these guys again!! A few days later we headed to downtown Houston for Leadership Training for Christ. We spent two days down there watching our teens compete in different activities that teach them to be leaders in the church! They did great and Aspen had a ball being with all the kids!! Sunday morning we woke up and headed to church straight from our hotel. The Easter Bunny came to our house instead of the hotel! Aspen loved her Easter basket complete with a mini chocolate bunny. Sydney got one too that I thoroughly enjoyed eating!! Later that day we had a church easter egg hunt in our annex because of the rain. That was our week in a brief synopsis! I would love to write more but I am lucky to even do this with two kids! Lets see...Aspen is now 29 months old and 28 lbs. She is learning to use the potty but we have not perfected it yet! She is really enjoying sitting on it though and putting toilet paper in it. She always says funny things and yesterday She was telling me she wanted some milk and she said, "GIVE ME THAT MILKERS". I told her that was not the right way to ask. Guy said, "aspen you need to say, May I have some milk". So, she then said with a whimper in her voice, "MAYME MILKERS PLEASE!". It was really cute! She likes to "share with Sydney". This means she says, "here sydney..here is a toy" and then quickly yangs it away saying, "Thats A MY TOY!". haha! We are working on this!! She still loves to hug and kiss her mama and everyday asks if she can hold me and "kiss you me". Sydney is around 13 lbs and will be 4 months old on the 24th. She is now compltely sleeping through the night meaning from around 10:00 till 7:00!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!! She smiles everytime I talk to her and sometimes can't fall asleep or keep her pacy in because she is smiling so much at me! She also outright laughed this week when I sang a song to her! She never crys and is such a joy!!! I love my girls!!!! They are more fun everyday!!!!!
