Easter Weekend

This year Easter was not just a one day celebration but a weekend extravaganza. We were very busy but had a lot of fun visiting with family and celebrating the resurrection of Christ. It was a great weekend.

Here is Alex in his Easter outfit. His face may look like this because we took this picture after making him suffer through three hours of church and only taking an hour long nap.

On Saturday we celebrated with the Hettinger's by dying Easter eggs and playing games. Alex had a good time playing with Grandpa.

Intense Easter Egg creation happening...

These are the eggs Brandon and I dyed. They include an Alex head, one with Alex's name, a New York Yankees logo and a picture of Boo.

Here is Alex checking out his Easter loot from Grandma and Grandpa Clements. He was a spoiled boy.

Mikah and Max checking out their baskets.

We hunted for Easter Eggs at Grandma Clements house. With some help Alex found a lot of eggs.

Boo even got to have some fun this weekend. She got to play with Koda.

Koda even shared her water...sort of.

Having Alex with us makes holidays even more fun. It was a great weekend. Even though Alex didn't get his regular naps in he was happy and had a lot of fun. He is such an easy going kid. We are lucky to have him.

11 Months

I know I say this every month but I can hardly believe that Alex is 11 months old. Just one more month until the big one year mark. Despite the unwelcome snow, we are having a lot of fun. Alex now has four teeth. His upper teeth are pretty awesome looking.
He is still refusing to wear shoes.

Boo is also depressed by the snowy weather.

Best Friends :) Alex is doing lots of standing but no walking yet. He is too busy crawling to waste his time with it.

No More Mullets

Even though his cousin Sadie said that Alex had "luscious" hair earlier this week we decided that he was in need of yet another haircut. It was starting to look very "mullety" and he was mistaken for a girl several times. I don't have a very good "before" picture to show how long it really was. This time we decided to try and go a little shorter.
Brandon did most of the cutting and for not knowing what we were doing I think it turned out pretty good. Now I think he looks more like a little boy and less like a baby...which makes me a little sad.
