Today was her second day of nursery and she, of course, wanted to take it with her. Joe said that he tried to take the gee, but quickly learned that was NOT going to happen! She kept it with her, and from what I hear, did pretty well at nursery.

During church, we were in sitting in front of a woman who I'd never met (later, came to find out she is an investigator and it was one of her first weeks at church...). She told us this story after the meeting, I didn't actually hear it, but I can totally imagine it! She had a cane with a sculpted, marble-looking top that was leaning against our bench. Andrew was examining it very curiously, so she leaned forward and told him what it was. She said, "It's my cane, it helps me walk." He thought really hard about that for a minute and then seemed to figure things out, he said, "Oh, is that because you are old and weak?" She laughed very hard, thought it was the cutest thing. We've sat behind/in front of her every week since then and she always makes a point to say hi to Andrew.
The other day Andrew was helping me sort laundry. We got into a discussion about super heroes and who are the good guys, who work together (Batman does NOT work with Spiderman!) and what EVERY characters name is. I am NOT an expert on super heroes, I answered what I could be I had to defer to "ask your daddy when he gets home" several times when I didn't know the answers.
After a while, he seemed to give up on me. "Mommy, you just don't know as much as Daddy."
I gladly agreed.
He thought about for a minute and then came to a conclusion. "That's because your head is not very big. Daddy has a REALLY BIG HEAD (holding his hands out as far as he could reach them) so he knows lots of stuff. I have a kind of big head, so I know kind of a lot of stuff, but your head is just little tiny (said in a little squeaky voice) so you don't know as much." He put his head right next to mine and compared our head sizes with his hands, as if to prove his point. It was really funny!
Okay, just a few quick favorite sayings...
"I wuv Woo Woo!" (translated as I love Lou Lou, that's Abby's nickname!)
(With his hand on his head and shaking his head at me) "Honestly, Mom!"
Okay, that's all that comes to mind right now, I'll have to add more as I remember them!
I loved Abby's Easter dress, so I had to get some extra pictures of her! These were taken at my parent's house after church. This girl LOVES accessories, it's so cute!

After that fun party, we had about an hour to recover before the evening events. We had an early dinner (grilled cheese sandwiches with "spaghetti soup" AKA tomato soup) then Sam and Daddy headed off to play laser tag. Sam got to invite one friend and he choose Jared. So, Sam, Jared and the dads went to LaserQuest. They had a blast (once they got over the dark maze, black lights and loud music) and came home with lots of exciting things to tell about the evening. Sam was EXHAUSTED...and so were Mom and Dad! It was a great birthday.
Happy Birthday to my big six year old. I can't believe how fast he's grown!

Once again, we braved the crowds (and this year, the weather!) to go to the Lilac parade this year. We had such a great time last year, we decided to go again. We actually ended up sitting in the exact same spot and meeting up with the same crowd...it was lots of fun!
Me and Sam!
Just hangin' out...killin' time!
It was another fun (and late!) night. Just like last year, the boys LOVED the marching bands. Sam was especially smitten with all of the princesses who were waiving...just at him! It was fun to visit and just enjoy the festivities. We stayed until the very end...and the weather held out for us. We felt the first raindrops as we got to our van, perfect timing!
