My Easter began with a trip to the Instacare to get antibiotics for yet another bout of Strep Throat.  Kids and Will wen to Grandma Alice's without me- I stayed at my parent's house and quarantined myself in the bedroom.  So no pics.
There was still a good food and a lot of candy though.
Happy Easter!


Alex is a baby that was staying with us for a couple of months, and he just went home last week.  At that time I asked permission to post a pic of him on my internet blog. So now anyone who didn't visit me in the past couple of months can see him!

Also, everyone kept telling me he looks like Liam, so here's the baby picture side-by-side.


Yeah, I guess I can see it.

Halloween Head Start

Liam has asked to be at least 5 different things for Halloween this year.  Although the top two that keep getting asked for are Loki (villain from The Avengers) and Stump Smash (character in the video game Skylanders). So I decided I'm going to make a bunch of costumes, put them in the dress-up box, and then he can just pick from the dress-up box on Halloween.

I had to start with Loki, because he's one of my favorite characters. It's simple, but I think it turned out cool:

he has black pants and black shirt for Halloween night.

Reese has asked to be the Pirate Princess from Jake and the Neverland Pirates, so I'll post that next, and then we'll get to Stump Smash and see if the kids have asked for anything else by then.
