Scrambling for Eggs

 I had to work Easter weekend, so I missed out on church and the best annual egg hunt on the farm. This little bugger is the one I really missed.
 3 1/2 already, and full of it! He loves the farm & it was a perfect day for a hunt.
 Thankfully Trav took some good pics so  I could relive the experience;)
 No new outfits this year, but they are still cute, I may be a little biased:)
 Trav took some bad pics too, I had to include, we need to work on angles.
 Never too old to hunt.
Lots of nooks & crannies to hide eggs in here.
Kingston is over the picture taking in this one, I think.

 I like these peeps

Really Trav?

Eggsciting Times

 We had fun dying easter eggs this year, but our house was very stinky.
 Monroe liked her m&m's & smurf the best.
 We tried out this from bhg using food dye & vinegar to color eggs, we will do this again, fun & bright tie dye eggs.

 Peeps sitting on white chocolate pretzels with sprinkles, King ate the peep and I ate the pretzels, we were a pretty good team.
 So these asian noodle peanut butter chocolate nests turned out!! My phone pics are not good, but the first ones tasted good..
 I went to shower and came back to 30 nests gone & 6 remaining, it turns out dogs can eat chocolate. At least ours does, he didn't like the robins eggs as much.

 Some friends started a tradition of Egging this year, the kids loved this and Jude was convinced we were going to be arrested.
The eggers, Kingston thinks its Halloween, we have way too much candy.
Thanks for asking us to join you Sieberts, fun times!

We ended the night with a flashlight egg hunt, now that is a good picture;)

Living Museum & Surviving 6th Grade

 Xander was invited to go to Worlds of Fun on opening day, I think these boys had a blast! They have been working hard and deserved the break. He recently told me that his teacher told them they need to shower everyday, put on deodorant and cologne because they stink, I believe it.
 6th grade has been busy! Within a week students had to decide on people from Ancient Civilizations to dress up as for the Living Museum. Then they came to life at school and were encouraged to memorize scripts, while all of the classes visited their country. Grant & Xander representing Judea as Jesus & the apostle Peter.

 Xander trying out the costume
 I love that he doesn't freak out about projects, assignments & happenings, takes it all in stride and does a pretty good job, hope this continues...
 cute girls representing Egypt

And then there was a castle to be built… Can't spend more than 5.oo but can take you 5 hours for all the parts that blew away on the way to school.
I am so proud of him and excited to see what middle school brings, can only pray he will continue to make good choices. Also that he has some impact on the little airplane dude, because his choices have not been so good these days.

Take me out to the ball game...

 Jude has been very into March Madness and who is versing who, the K State vs KU baseball game was a perfect fit for his birthday party.
This makes me thankful to live in a college town where we can attend sporting events easily and the fans are tolerable of these crazy little dudes.
 Cute group

 It was a quick game and we ended up losing 2 to 1. These boys were into the game and probably the loudest fans, standing on their seats by the end of the game.
 Some leaders emerged in this group very quickly, calling a group huddle on a game plan to win.

 They needed to burn off some energy after the game, we should have walked home.
Finished the game and got to run the bases

 We switched sports at home and finished with knockout.

 Not quite as fancy party favors, but I did love the florescent softer baseballs.
 Jude is sad his party is over, I can't really say I feel the same.

Monroe's Pedi Party

Thank you Jess for the awesome invite made in a moments notice:)
 The party went through with no major flops, how cute are these water balloon flip flops?
Love this age, girls can take instruction well and think everything is fun and cool. Love how these bright colored flops turned out. Their toes turned out amazing too, no thanks to me.

 Showing off a little picture cookie cake, thank you Mrs.Dillons, per Monroe's request, smart cookie.
 Trav joined in for the singing part, and yep that was about all we needed him for.
 had to do some feet soaking before we touched the toes
 I love this picture of Kingston getting in on the action, the toe separators didn't quite fit him.
 The girls couldn't wait to give Razberry, Monroe's beta fish, a new home. He had been in a little cup before he went to heaven in his new lavish home.
 Party favors were fun, Monroe and I pre-made sugar scrub and body butter.

Miss Smith in action. No surprise that this artist can do some pretty awesome flowers and has got skills when it comes to pedis. I love that all the girls chose different colors & designs, no two the same:)

 Roe is eating of course while her friends are busy getting pedied up and tying flip flops

 We had a polish exchange, spring is a great time for fun feet colors

Could not have done it without Kenzie, thank you for helping pretty up these feet, we love you!

 Party pics, these are some fun girls.
