April Foolin' and Other Shenanigans

Here's a little more of what we've been up to.  I finally got back to sewing!  I only had this kit sitting in my closet for a year and it was nice to get it done!
 This little guy turned 10 months and was pretty happy about it!
I'll get to more of Mabel later in this post but apparently she's been getting pretty good at writing her name.... Unfortunately the carpet was also one of her victims on this day.
 I tried to get a good shot of this guy in his little tie but of course I couldn't.  He looked so cute too!
 On April Fool's Day I taped wrapping paper outside the girls door.  I also laid out mine and Lewis' clothes for them in the morning.
 After school I had mashed potato and gravy sundaes waiting for them.
 Don't worry, they got me back.  And we had a long talk about what is funny and what goes too far....
Last week this little one had dance pictures.  Of course we had to practice our poses before.
 Along with a little booty shakin'.
We love clothes packages from cousins!  Especially when they come with matching jammies!!! (I completely love that they're holding hands in this picture!).
 And of course we had to have another one with Mabel included.
 Speaking of that Mabel, here she is with her hedgehog from preschool.
 Last week I went crazy and decided to paint the piano.  It was my first time using chalk paint and it was so fun!  The girls had fun helping too.
I also got to go help with Lilly's spring party where they made the cutest bunny noses!
 Apparently someone got a hold of my phone in the car and snapped this shot.  Seriously love that little boy...
 There's a new custard/Italian ice place that opened up here that we had to try out.  It wasn't too bad.  Lewis especially loved getting a few licks here and there.
Over Conference weekend Sophia searched the internet for crafts to complete and came up with this little Origami dog (really Doug was the one who put it together....)
 I spent most of my time listening completing this darn thing.  I've only had it sitting in my closet for 4 years!!
Spring break has begun and we've been trying to find ways to keep ourselves busy.  I've still been trying to go to Zumba and this little guy came with me today.  I think he thought it was pretty boring.
 Today we went to the new Muppet movie and this little guy took a little tumble down the theater stairs.  I felt horrible!  He has quite the shiner.  Not to mention he was the absolute worst during the whole movie (little tumble aside).  I'm pretty much not taking him to another movie for a few years.  Good thing the movie wasn't very good anyway.  Unfortunately...
This post is jumping around a lot but for some reason the pictures are all kind of jumbled.  The other day Mabel taped this sign to Lewis' door and declared that his room was now her room.  She then clarified that by saying "when Ewis needs to go to seep it's Ewis' woom and when I need to do my crafts and stuff it's my woom".  I told her that was a great idea and she said "Yeah...I have great wee-deahs."  I love that she adds a wee sound to the beginning of a lot of words (wee-nana, etc).  She also says "we" instead of "us" or "our" ("When we get back to we's house can we...." "Oh!  We's has dat at we's house...").  She also talks constantly about her grown up house and what things were like when she was a grown up.  I seriously can't get enough of her these days.
 Finally, I went to check on this little one before going to bed and couldn't get away without snapping a picture of his sweetness.  Why are they so darn cute when they're sleeping!?
