A lot of randomness

We love to have fun in our house!!  Lately the kids think the most fun thing is to not sleep at night... LOL!  They have both had such a hard time sleeping since we moved in with my mom.  I know they are adjusting I just hope it happens quick =)  Bryn & I have been doing a lot of baking lately!  We made some great cupcakes for my brother in laws graduation.  They turned out great!!  We also made a banana cheesecake for Easter with Marks fam!  All of those boys LOVE banana cream pie, so I thought I'd change it up a bit! 

Here are the Grad cupcakes!  They are Orange cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.
They also have "diplomas" & "Graduation caps" on them! =)
We woke up Saturday morning & went to an Easter Egg hunt with our great friends the Gants & Groningas.  We then went & enjoyed some delicious breakfast.  The kids love to hunt for eggs!!  Our kids did 3 hunts this year between fam & friends.  It was such a great Easter!  We went to Marks Dads & spent the day with his fam.  Dad made some delicious food for us!  Of course the kids loved it more cause they get spoiled by Grandma & Grandpa Rice!  ;) 

How cute they looked on Easter Sunday!

Bryn about to get another egg

Kason on the hunt for eggs
My kids LOVE each other!  They love to hug each other & get their pics taken!  If Kason is in his diaper only, Bryn needs to get in just her underwear!  If Kason is in jammies, Bryn needs jammies!!  I'm so glad they love each other so much!  It makes for easy pics. =)  Followed by some fun pics I had to share!

Notice Kason is also wearing some of Bryn's flip flops & holding her necklasces... He loves her! LOL

Kason LOVES his blanket the hospital gave him =)  It has duckys on the other side =)

Gave this extremely tired boy a tiny piece of Chocolate... Rookie mistake
Bryn (with her buddy Ian watching her)  riding the spiderman ride at Fat Cats after enjoying some lunch with friends!
This is Brynlee pretending she is like my good friend Brittni that just had twin girls =)
Bryn still loves her Einsteins!!  =)
Battle wound # 465... In his little life he has had so many bruises & bumps, not to mention his broken wrist.  Well, last night Mark was playing with the kids & they were loving it!!  Suddenly Kason started falling off the couch, Mark put his arm back to catch him & Kason's eye hit Mark right on the elbow.  Mark is doing okay.  ;)  Kason instantly got his first gigantic shiner!  It swelled up & turned black immediately.  Poor bubba is such a tough guy!  He only cried for a min, but would not let us touch his face at all.  We couldn't even put a cold pack on it.  He didn't sleep well last night, but I'm thinking if I just give him a bottle of Ibuprofen tonight instead of Milk... he will be okay ;) 
This is about 3 mins after the "beating"

Here he is today peacefully sleeping after being up all night!  It looks much better in this pic.  It's a little darker in real life.  We are hoping for a quick healing!  But who are we kidding... He's still the cutest kid even with a black eye =)

 All in all we have a wonderful life!!  We are counting down the 11 weeks we have left until this baby makes it's appearance into our little family!  We are grateful for wonderful family & friends!  I know this is going to be a good year for us no matter what challenges we have to face!  =)

One smart boy

I just have to say that Kason amazes me every single day!!  This is a conversation we just had....
I was getting a drink of water when
Kason says "drink?"
Me "You want a drink bubba?"
Kason "ya"
Me "Where's your sippy?"
Kason "I don't know"
Me "Ask Daddy"
Kason "Daddy, can I have some milk please?"

It was the cutest thing I have ever seen in my life!!  He is just so smart & adorable & happy... I just love how blessed we are with this smart 19 1/2 month old! 

Mark keeps asking me what we are going to do with another baby cause we just love ours so much!  LOL!  I think we will figure it out!!  12 weeks & counting til we have our new addition to the fam & we could not be more excited!! =)

Kid time = Fun time

We went to the park on April Fools Day... I wish I could have played a major joke on my husband, but had nothing to do... Every woman is always obsessed with the "I'm Pregnant" scam... that doesnt work so well for me!  =)  We had a blast at the park!  The kids love playing outside & I love nice days! 
Brynlee made a new friend there.  He walked right up to her & hugged her then said "do you want to play with me?"  It was the cutest thing EVER!!  Brynlee told me about 300 times that he was her friend!  LOL  I love kids!! 

Brynlee made a new friend at the Park. He walked right up & hugged her then said "Do you want to play with me?"  It was so cute!!  Brynlee only told me about 300 times that he was her new friend!  It was the cutest thing EVER!
 Kason was actually able to climb up the stairs & slide down the slides on his own.  He is just getting soo big I cannot believe it! 

We did a project of Jelly Bean necklaces with Brynlee & my neices while I was babysitting!  It was so much fun, but time consuming!!  Not something I would recommend! ;) 

Last night we had some friends over for dinner & dessert... mmmm... I made this delicious recipe I found blog shopping... Red Hot Cupcakes...

They are so extremely delicious I cannot even express it enough!!  The frosting is the very VERY best part... Seriously!!  Not just because it was frosting, but because I used my very own Buttercreme recipe & added a few things from her deliciousness.. Oh my!! If you like Red Hots.. Please let me make these cupcakes for you!!!  Mmmmmmmmm!
Jamie Healy.. This post was especially for you!!  I hope you read & enjoy it =)
