Okay I am way behind on posting anything with all the craziness in this household.. I am now just posting about Easter which is sad to say was a month and a half ago.. This year we just had a small Easter with the family. To start the day off the kids awoke to their Easter baskets from the Easter bunny aka mom and dad, a few things from grandma and grandpa and some things from their Aunt. After the kids ripped apart their baskets it was time for breakfast. This year I decided to do something different and we had bunny shaped french toast and scrambled eggs. Jack and Ava really enjoyed eating the bunnies. Once breakfast was done we just hung out until about 2 when everyone else came. once everyone else was there we started the BBQ, which has a funny story to go along with it. Danny decided to put most of the meat in a glass dish and set it next to the BBQ. Well he didn't realize that glass when heated up shatters into a million pieces. Glass went everywhere and we were left with glass covered meat on the grill. Thank goodness Stater Brothers was open still and we could somewhat salvage our meal.. While in Stater Brothers I enjoyed a good old California earth quake. I was amazed at all the things that came falling off the shelves and the reaction of the people in the store. Needless to say it was interesting. While our second take at the BBQ was happening kids enjoyed their Easter egg hunt. Once the Easter egg hunt was over the dinner was finally ready. Thank goodness. All in all we had a wonderful Easter and are so thankful to have spent the time together.

It's Easter time in our household again and that means the tradition of dyeing eggs was in order. This year we had two extra guests with us to help us dye our eggs.. Gizelle and Katelyn were here to help. I was trying to show Jack hoe to use the egg dipper they give to you but he had an easier time just grabbing his eggs right out of the dye. As a result of that he had green hands which made him look like the Incredible Hulk. Ava of couse did the same thing because she wants to be just like Jack except her hands were a shade of yellow and green. Now Kaden just wanted to eat the eggs and play in they dye so he had splashes of blue on him. Katelyn put her eggs in her pink dye and than just wanted to dump it all over the table and floor. It everywhere and thank goodness for magic erasers otherwise we would have a huge pink stain on the floor.. Other than a few craked eggs and dyed hands the kids made so great looking eggs..
This year we decided to buy pass to Knott's Berry Farm and all of the Knott's Soak cities. The price was to good to pass up considering the amount a Disneyland pass cost. This is the first trip to Knott's Berry Farm for all of the kids. To start our day off Jack was extremely excited and wasn't looking where he was going and smacked right into a light post. As you can see in the pictures below his giant goose egg. once the tears stopped we enjoyed the rest of the day. Jack is still a little short to go on most of the roller coasters but I am glad they have the baby swap program there. As far as Ava, she is short for her age and ca only ride a few rides in camp snoopy. Kaden just enjoyed being out of the house and the few rides we could take him on.

It has been so long since I updated the blog so here are some pictures of what we have been doing. We had a chance to take the kids to the snow and they loved it. Jack really enjoyed going down the hills but not so much the climb back. Most of the time he had Danny pull him up the hill.. We also enjoyed a trip to the beach. The water was still a bit cold. Danny and jack braved the cold water but the rest of us stayed out. Instead we played in the sand.
