Sophia's class has been learning about Nursery Rhymes lately. This week they were lucky enough to have some black sheep come and visit their class. She loved it! It happened to be the day I was helping in the classroom so Mabel got to join in on the fun too!Today she had a Mother Goose Fair in her class. The kids got to come dressed as their favorite Nursery Rhyme character and then perform it for everyone. She chose to be Little Miss Muffet. Doug's mom had this really cute hat and apron/jumper thing that she let us borrow. I couldn't get it all to fit her quite right and then I remembered I had this apron. I quickly whipped up a hat to match and she was ready to go. Here's her class singing "Hey Diddle Diddle" for us. (Of course I'm an awesome parent and forgot my camera so these were all taken with my phone. Sorry!) Here's Sophia performing "Little Miss Muffet. One of her favorite little friends was Little Miss Muffet as well. This cute boy was the spider that scared Miss Muffet. He doesn't look too frightening (or excited to have his picture taken).

I just found more pictures on my camera from Easter. Sorry I've posted A TON lately. I guess I just really want to be caught up so I don't have to post for awhile.
After church and lunch the whole house took a 2 hour nap. It was so nice and it never happens! I can't remember the last time Sophia took a nap. It was incredible! Sweet Lilly fell asleep cuddling her purple unicorn the Easter Bunny brought. So cute. After naps we headed to my brother Jason's house for a delicious meal and fun egg hunt!
Saturday we headed out to Doug's uncle's house for an Egg hunt with the whole Ivins clan. He has a huge backyard that was perfect for a hunt.Mabel opted to not look for eggs but stay warm and cozy with grandma instead. Lilly was pretty excited (in case you can't tell by the look on her face) with the bubbles she claimed from the prize table.

We finally made it home and are happy to be back (but again, sad to not be in NY anymore). My brother that was there at the same time gave me this to bring home to Doug (they stopped by the Hershey factory on their way to NY). It looks like a fairly normal Reese's bar until you look a little bit closer. Yikes! This thing weighs 1 pound!
Here's what we did our last few days there. My sister has the greatest house. I seriously love everything about it. She may kill me for posting this picture but one of the things I love the most is her basement. It's the best place to play! Especially on a cold Buffalo winter day. It has a shuffleboard game built into the tile. What more could you want?The kids also had fun with the pool table. Most people like to play pool on a pool table but it's also fun to practice earthquake drills on a pool table. She also has this awesome Florida room connected to their family room that goes straight into the backyard. Totally jealous of this also!
