Happy Easter!

We had a great Easter today - went to church this morning then went to Cracker Barrel with Justin & Britni afterwards. Then Rob and Justin had a fun afternoon of golfing. While they were gone Brady got his 1st taste of sweet potatoes! Boy did he like them - he actually screamed at me when I tried to put them away after he had eaten 1/2 the container. He wanted more, so of course I obliged! I was so excited for him to try some "real" food, since he's only had rice & oatmeal cereals (we started these about a week and a half ago). 

Here's our family Easter photo. Hope everyone had a good weekend!

Cincinnati Trip & other Randomness

Okay, I hate blogger - I added this picture late and since it's a total PITA to move them I had to leave it here at the top. This is B this morning before church. I thought he looked too cute in his polo and jeans and had to snap a pic.

Wow, I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post! Actually, I can. I'm the worlds worst blogger. I'd much rather read other people's blogs than write about my own boring life. Which reminds me - I updated my blogroll on the side, I've found some more fun blogs to waste countless hours of my life reading! Enjoy!

Well we made it home from our trip to Cincy in one piece and without any major meltdowns (by either Brady or myself). Which was a lot better than our trip up there - Brady didn't like the plane rides too well. The plane rides were actually heaven compared to the first few nights we were there though - Brady hardly slept at all for the first 3 nights. It was a nightmare for me! And we are crazy enough that we are going to do it all over again in about 2 months! Rob's brother is getting married Memorial Day weekend and we plan on flying up there for about a week. Hopefully though things will be easier since Rob will be traveling with us this time. At least he can shield my boobs from onlookers as I try to nurse a screaming child in the airport and on the plane! Oh, how I feel for those poor souls who had to sit next to me on our last trip!

So, let's get on with it. Here are just a few photos from our trip. I took a TON, but I hate uploading them - it takes too long to do and it's too hard to rearrange them. Does anyone else have this problem?

Brady with 3 of his girlfriends (the kids of 2 of my friends from high school)
We had a mini high school reunion with our offspring! It was so good to see these girls again. I hadn't seen many of them in 8 years!!! Too long to go without seeing good friends!

Mike, Macy & Devin...the real reason we made the trip in the 1st place - Macy's 1st B-day party!

Brady & Macy hamming it up. They LOVED eachother!
Brady turned 5 months while we were there. 
Brady with another girlfriend, Lola. Lola's mommy (Sarah) and I were sorority sisters in college. They live in Nashville now, but happened to be in town that weekend. Check out the look on Brady's face - meltdown in action!

Aside from a little health scare from my dad, which landed our family in the emergency room one night, we had a great trip up north and I'm now itching more than ever to pack up our house and move! Unfortunately we haven't had any showings in a very long time. My friend Katie told me that I should plant a St. Joseph figurine in my yard to bring good luck. She said it worked for both her sister and parents when they were selling their homes. I had never heard of this before so I googled it and sure enough lots of information came up about this. I haven't bought my figurine yet, but I'm gonna try to find some time this week to get one. Hey, whatever works, right?

Katie also sent me a facebook message today to tell me she loved the Chicken Fafalle recipe I blogged about last year. This got me thinking that I should really do a favorite recipe post since I've really started enjoying cooking.  I'll link to (or post the recipes) of my favorites and if anyone has any of their own they can comment and add to the list. I'm gonna force myself to get started on this and (hopefully) it won't be another month before I get it up!
