Adaliah was a good sport and let me sponge roll her hair the night before Easter.
I thought she looked simply adorable. I had great fun dressing her up. Nicole bought her the dress at Goodwill and the hat and gloves at Target, Katie K. got her the sweater at a Mom2Mom sale, and I got her the purse at Target.
We can see where she gets her looks from....=)
After a time of remebrance of what the Lord has done for us we went over to Nicole's house and had a wonderful Easter dinner. Keb and Jaydn also came over with Jason's best friend Austin. We did a little candy hunt with all of the kids. Maria did a little lesson before hand talking about the reason Jesus came to earth was to find His lost treasures....His children. Then she told the kids that is what you guys are going to do...find some treasures. The kids were so cute and were finding the "treasures" and putting it in their cousins baskets. Warmed our hearts!
As I am sure you are all aware of...my two sisters are due this summer. I finished the babies' presents this week. Maria is doing a zebra print with hot pink accents. So I took this......
I painted the inside white and I used the printed duct tape and covered the outside of it. Then I put a black and white ribbsons (with help from hubby since I didn't seem to have enough hands to hold it all straight) at the bottom. Around the silver part I put black "gemstones" and this is the finished product.
Nicole is doing baby boy Murray's room in a barn theme. So I took a steamer trunk that I had (I went through a phase and picked them up ALL the time at garage sales so I ended up with more than I needed) and I spray painted it red with metalic silver trim. Then I put decals and stickers I printed off the computer around of various farm scences and animals.
They certainly are not perfect but I hope my new neice and nephew will know I was thinking of them and loved them before they were even born.
Well there you have it. Another post trying to get you all caught up to the present. Hopefully my next post I can show you what we have been up to with our outside projects. I am sooooo excited. God bless you all!
