Happy Easter 2012

Easter this year was a great success. We got way too much candy! Our weekend was filled with lots of fun things. Saturday night Grandma and Grandpa Bartlett had a BBQ and their annual Easter egg hunt. Crew loved it this year, and I know every year after this it will just get more fun. He got so excited when he would find the eggs. Each grand kid got 10 eggs. One of the eggs had their name on it. Inside that egg was a letter that then matched a bag on the table. Inside Crew's bag was a new pair of shoes. Grandma figured the Easter bunny brought the kiddos enough candy, so she did spring shoes for each of them. Great idea! Boys can never have enough shoes-they get destroyed!

On Sunday we woke up and went and found the eggs the Easter bunny hid along with Crew's Easter basket. He again loved it. He had to line the eggs up in a row when he found them. Crew loves the bunny Easter (thats what he calls him) from a far. He wanted nothing to do with him close up. Every time we would go to the mall I would try real hard to get him to sit on his lap. No such luck. When I tucked stinker into bed Saturday night I told him bunny Easter was going to come to his house. I will never forget the look on his face. He sat up and said "momma, he stay in garage not Crew's room" oh man this boy cracks me up.

Sunday evening we spent at Grandma and Grandpa Taylor's. We had a delicious dinner, then grandma went out and hid some surprises. While we were eating dinner Crew peeked out the window and found some. He was getting super excited. He's never eaten dinner so good :) Stu and Jess gave Crew a awesome Thomas the train set. He loves it! We love spending time with family. What a great weekend!!

Buzz and Woody

We took Crew on Saturday to see Buzz and Woody on ice. My parents used to take me to these when I was younger, and I loved them! Did you know they sucker you into everything there?! I still have a little mermaid cup and a bell cup from the "icy's" they make. So of course I wanted to get Crew one. Well $15 later Crew had a Buzz cup with a rainbow icy that he had 5 bites of. Awesome, I know. Then we wanted to get him a cool toy. All the other kids had cool toys. So Dad buys him a cool buzz toy that spins with lots of colorful lights. Let's just say he better play with that toy every day for the next year!! Like I said when your there in that atmosphere, you want to get everything. I really just need to learn how to tell my buddy no. Well besides all that, he loved it! It was well done, and worth our money to watch him.

How can you not give that boy with that cute face everything he wants?!

People that came: Grandma and Grandpa boat (my parents) Grandma and Grandpa four wheeler (Eric's parents) Uncle Stu and Aunt Jess, Uncle Rick and Aunt Amy, CJ, Alex, Ry Ry, Uncle Brian (we missed Aunt Julia, Kenner, Kameron, and Jasmine, but they were where they needed to be) Uncle Brad, Aunt Syd, McKaylee, Brynlie, Sayds, Grandma Wynne and Grandpa Jay, Trav, Reece, Jake and Natalie.

Too Early?

We went to the store on Monday and let Crew pick out some big boy underwear and a new little toilet seat. This will not come as a shock, but he picked spiderman and Disney characters. I love little boy underwear, so cute! Let me know if you have any tips on potty training a little boy. And am I starting too early? Tonight we put him on his seat and he freaked out, it made him nervous. He also loved his underwear on..can't you tell?

I just love this boy so much! Any tips would help.

Much Needed Break

Our best friend Travis purchased a home in Mesquite a few months back. They closed on it a few weeks ago, and we got our first invite down there. It's just not as easy anymore to up and leave these days. Luckily my mother-in-law and father-in-law were more than willing to watch Crewser so we could have a break. We had a great time with friends. We drove down to Vegas Saturday and walked the strip. Don't worry we got frozen hot chocolate from Serendipity. Hopefully will get another invite soon :) hint hint guys!

It was good practice for us for what's coming our way in a few months. Leaving Crew for a week and half?! Not sure I can do it. Missed my buddy.

I can't believe how fast time flies!! Crewser is turning 2 next month. Can you believe this?! He is so into Spiderman aka "SPIDAMAN" he climbs up the stairs sideways, runs around and jumps. He thinks he is as great as the superhero. As do I. So I know I need to follow the theme that he's into at the time for his party. So maybe Spiderman it is. I am really wanting to do a swoop party, because he is Swoop's biggest fan. I talked to a friend up at the U of U. They can get Swoop up to his party, but they charge $200 an hour! Okay, no thanks.

I think we will stick with Spiderman. Let me know if you have any cute ideas. One month left of my baby, then will be into the terrible 2's. Oh wait, those started months ago :)

8 lbs. 6 oz. to 23 lbs. I think I miss the baby stage....

He loves getting haircuts. We turn on Thomas and he sits so good. Maybe it's because he gets a haircut so often. He has so much hair, it's crazy.
This was after 3 weeks is all...

The finished product. I think he's so dang handsome!!
