Happy Easter, Y'all!

Well, this certainly wasn't a typical Easter for us.  We spent the day packing, packing, packing.

I'm happy to report the Easter Bunny did manage to deliver Easter baskets for Olivia and Davis despite the stacks and stacks of boxes cluttering the house.

We dyed eggs on Friday.  Davis sat back and let Olivia do all the dirty work!

Davis's first Easter basket!!  The Easter Bunny hid it in the laundry room sink!

Olivia's was hidden in the kitchen cabinet!  That Easter Bunny is sneaky!

Olivia enjoyed a Bunny waffle breakfast with a side of blueberries and bananas!

Hoppy Easter!

Don't Mess with Dave...

Today was one of those perfect "Dave" days--a sunny, roll-the-windows-down kind of day.  So that's what I did as I drove Olivia to dance today!  I had the windows down with an old Dave CD in blasting "So Much to Say."  

Olivia yelled from the back seat, "Mommy!  Turn that down!  It's too lLLllooOOOouuuuuuuuudd!"  So I pulled over and spanked her.

(Totally kidding on that last part!)

No, I sternly (but lovingly) explained to her that Mommy was listening to Dave Matthews.  DAVE MATTHEWS.  D-A-V-E!!  And when Mommy listens to Dave things are going to be a little loud.  And that's that. Period!

It's an important life lesson for her!  Little does she know that Dave had me in 1995 when I was in the 9th grade with "Ants Marching!"

Don't mess with Dave!

Olivia Turns 4

We celebrated Olivia's 4th birthday this past weekend.  The theme of choice was Strawberry Shortcake!

(Our walls are looking naked.  We are in full swing packing mode!)

Olivia had a big day!!

Sunday, which was her actual birthday, we went to the Botanical Gardens and had a picnic with pizza from Mellow Mushroom.  It seemed to lift Olivia's spirits seeing as she woke up crying because she wanted to have another party on her birthday.  

As an added bonus, it was D's first trip to Clemson!!

What a fun weekend!
