I was so delighted to meet and photograph my new nephew, Jackson Phillip Vernon. He is a doll!  Here are a few sneak peeks at his 12-day old photo session.

March in Review

March was a wonderful month.   We LOVED having Mark/Jana and their kids here for a few days!  Just wish I had taken more picture!

We even had a chocolate fountain! If you can imagine 11 kids in age from 1 to 13 with some adults that may have been sitting on the edge of their seat, it was quite a sight!  So good!!

Clayton and Addyson LOVED having their cousins here and were so sad when they had to leave.

We went to Totters Otterville for a birthday party and had a great time!

My face painting skills - with Clayton's help. :-)

Shopping up a storm.

Doctors Addy and Clayton at the pet shop.

A favorite spot!

Awesome Germantowne Pizza to finish off the play time!
Yes - there were 9 toddlers 3 and under at this table!
Happy 3rd Birthday to Samuel!

 And another birthday on the same day!

Happy 1st Birthday to Reegan!

Curled Addy's hair and had to take a picture, since she wouldn't let me leave the band in very long.

Just a snapshot of our month!

Easter Cookies

The kids (and me too) absolutely LOVE homemade sugar cookies - and they may love making them even a little more than eating them.  So, yesterday we started our Easter week with numerous egg hunts all over the house and also made cookies.

So excited that it was cookie-making time!

Choosing cookie cutters: an egg and a flower.

Rolling Pin time

They both had their fair share of dough. :-)

Notice Clayton's mouth full of dough here . . .

. . . and here. We finally have a pan full ready for the oven.

After nap time . . .

It's time for frosting!!

Clayton kept a careful watch over the sprinkles.

I loved watching them decorate. Clayton loaded up the flower in the back and then this poor little egg only got a a drop of icing with a few sprinkles. He thought it was good enough! :-)

Happy Easter!
