A New Deck

My husband and dad slaved away this weekend adding a deck to the back of our house.  I love how it is turning out so far.

Movie Time

Our nanny surprised the kids with "Frozen" this week.  They were so excited.  Such a special treat.
Chase "helping" Daddy wire the bookshelf lights.
Lazy Saturday morning at Cracker Barrel.  
Chase showing off his muscles.  I'm obsessed with this kid.

JuJu & Gene

Aunt JuJu and Uncle Gene were our first overnight visitors at the new house.  The kids absolutely adore them.
We had a great weekend with them playing Clue and eating way too much guacamole.
Ashlyn told me she was painting a picture of my body.  I'm glad it's not time to break out the bathing suit yet because clearly I have a lot of work to do :)

This little guy is so sweet and mischievous.  It has been so much fun to see his personality develop more and more.  He is still in speech once a week but has added lots of words to his vocabulary.  I can't believe he will be turning 3 this summer!  He has to be potty trained to start the 3's class in the fall, so I guess we will work on it over the summer.
Ash is "talking" to her friend Thomas on the phone.
Our sweet friends and soon to be neighbors gave us this adorable cookie basket on moving day!

February in Review

We had a whirlwind February!  We packed and moved and sold a house and still managed to have a little fun!  So thankful to be feeling more settled in our new house.  Thankfully, the kids have adjusted well.

I took this picture from our video monitor before we moved.  Ashlyn helped Chase "sneak" out of his room when he woke up early one afternoon from his nap.  I heard her say "shhh...mommy won't know you are in here"
Ash went to her first "Daddy Daughter Dance."  I love that this is what she picked out to wear because she was a "princess going to the ball."

Bed, Bath & Where is Chase?!?

We lost Chase at Bed Bath & Beyond.  I thought Christopher was watching him.  He thought I was.  

Ash and I walked to look at something and a few minutes later, I noticed my husband leisurely walking around. I asked him where Chase was.  He said "I thought you had him?"  And that's when the panic set in.

We started running around looking for him.  Christopher happened to look up and guess where Chase was?  At the very top, just standing on the little platform.  Smiling.
He is such a sweet little mess.  But we do have to watch him every second because he disappears very quickly.

It snowed last week!  The last time it snowed in SC, Ashlyn was only 14 months old (and I was pregnant with Chase) so it was exciting for both of them.  Ok, the IDEA of snow was exciting for both of them.  Ashlyn loved it.
Chase did not.
Ashlyn is obsessed with lipgloss.  She knows where I keep it.  All of my "stashes."  She likes to put them all on one at a time, layered over each other.
So thankful this little guy still loves to snuggle.
My parents came to visit this weekend.  Chase stood at the window waiting patiently for them.
