Abbie isn't really into playing dress-up much, but every once in awhile we pull out the dress-up box and have at it! We decided to make it a family affair this time. Abbie even helped Sadie participate. We love nights like these where we all get to be silly and have fun together!

Help! I'm being attacked by an ugly black wig!

Hmmm...don't know what to call this one

Easter 2011

I know Easter was forever ago, but since this blog is supposed to be a famliy journal of sorts, I've got to blog about it so we can remember it years down the road! As per tradition, we went down to Beaver since Lance's grandma goes all out for Easter. It was nice to see some family that we only get to see once or twice a year. This was our first overnight adventure with both kids and we were a little nervous about the car ride, sleeping in a different place, and messed-up nap schedules. We rode down with Lance's brother's family; Derek, Sarah, and Bryson. Taht's four adults and three kiddos in carseats, so we were pretty squished, but the kids did well watching movies and eating lots of snacks. Then it was time for bed. I was dreading it because Abbie hadn't been sleeping very well at home anyway and Sadie woulen't sleep in her crib at home so I didn't know what we were going to do with her. We put Abbie on the floor in a sleeping bag, and Sadie slept in the bed with us. Abbie lasted a few hours before she woke up and stayed awake from midnight to 3 in the morning! During this time, the power went out, so we didn't have any light to read stories, and no TV to try and lull her back to sleep. We finally got Abbie back to sleep for a few more hours, but Sadie would not sleep anywhere but in our arms. Needless to say, it was not a fun night. And because of the events of the night, Abbie was exceptionally whiny the next day and we were exceptionally exhausted. Abbie was excited for the Easter egg hunt though and decided to be happy for at least a few minutes so we could snap some pictures and she could snag some goodies. We were planning on staying one more night, but since neither Bryson or Abbie slept well, we decided to head back home a little early.

I found one!!

We wanted to have a little Easter celebration with G & G Johnson and Uncle Taylor too, so we invited them over on Monday for a little Easter family night. We dyed eggs and hid some more for Abbie to find. All in all, it was a good Easter!
