Easter 2014

Easter kicked off Friday night with dying eggs.
John Wayne gets the gold star.
I had a bad tooth ache, so he pretty much got to handle it.
With Gaga's help.

We had princess eggs, Ninja Turtle eggs and happy kids.
I guess that adds up to success.

Here is one of my Easter Pinterest projects.
They turned out pretty cute.

Saturday we went to the city to spend the day at Justin's Grandma's...Gigi's.
{I love that we always have two Easters...that equals two outfits for the kids!}

After a great time at Gigi's, things went down hill.
Saturday night a little after midnight, GW woke up puking.
And was up all night puking.

John Wayne and the Little Lady went to church with Gaga and Papa and GW and I stayed home and cuddled on the couch and got some more rest.

By the time they got home from church, he was up to joining everyone for Easter dinner.
And...I had to have a few pictures in his new Easter suit.

Miss Tressie looked so pretty.
Take notice, her dress 'looks' like Elsa's : )

 I absolutely love this picture.

After the egg hunt, Gaga had prepared a treasure hunt for the kids.
It was of course adorable and fun and they loved it!

The final treasure was a new picnic table!!

We hope that your Easter was as blessed as ours!
{Minus the flu...that EVERYONE ended up getting.}

Catching Up

Here I am, playing catch-up, again.
These are pics from two weeks ago.

GW had his half birthday.
The big eighteen months!

We had our annual Farm Credit customer appreciation dinner.
It was a big night.
GW debuted his hat.
And T asked her 11-year-old crush "do you wanna get married?"
And then proceeded to kiss him, as two of her friends held him down.

Seriously, what are we going to do with her...

The next morning we headed to Sterling for KK's birthday party.
Things are getting complicated.
I mean she has a boyfriend...
She has a fiance...

It was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle party, so here the kids are, just getting into character.

My two little ninjas were tired by the time we got home.

Great Papa took us out to dinner at the Trading Post for John Wayne helping him calve out heifers.
Great Papa and Great Grandma think these two are pretty neat.

OK, one step closer to caught up!

Buckaroo Got New Boots

Buckaroo got new boots.


And apparently needs a new shirt that fits, too.
I love that one of my friends called it his "Bubba shirt."
Yes, this one is already in the "Save for Senior Slideshow" file!!

Amazing Weekend

Seeing how it is already the weekend again, I guess I better blog about last weekend.
Because it was amazing.

Gaga and Papa, yes #rockstars, watched the kids for John Wayne and I so we could have a little weekend getaway.
This is our no kids face!

We started with lunch at Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q.
If you've never gone.

Then while I got a mani/pedi, John Wayne killed time at Bass Pro.
Win win situation.

JC Nail Spa.
For your mani, you sit in a overstuffed leather recliner!

Then we checked into our hotel and got ready for the evening.
The evening that consisted of GEORGE STRAIT!

First we had dinner at our all time favorite, the Rio.

Then, we headed to the Pepsi Center to spend the evening with Lee Ann Womack, Merle Haggard and King George.
What an amazing line-up; some of John Wayne and I's favorites.
I mean you already know that we love us some Merle and Lee Ann Womack, one of the best female voices in country music.
By the end of the concert I was almost in tears {ridiculous, I know} but I mean why does the cowboy have to ride away?

The next morning we slept in.
That was awesome.
Grabbed some lunch and went and saw Divergent.

Best weekend ever!!!
