Easter Weekend [spoiled toddler]

We had a wonderfully busy weekend filled with treats, bubbles, fence making, and family time.

I tested out a new recipe (avocado deviled eggs). 
Pretty tasty, for those who like avocado of course. Recipe will be at www.facebook.com/afitlifewithhannah if you're interested.

She sure knew right where to go to find her eggs! And I just can't get enough of this cheesy grin.

She even figured out how to pick up three at the same time. Tricky, tricky.

Of course, Daddy and I had to redirect every once in a while so she'd stay out of the neighbors yard. ;)

What? They're all gone?

Thank you Great Grandma Kay and Bob for the romper. It was perfect for the 70s weekend weather!

Testing out Nana and Papa's new swing. :)

And the day wouldn't be complete without some play time with our cousins and a smooch for her pal Blaire.

She's got a slight obsession with the "side" (slide) right now. Good thing mommy picked up a used one for home.

She even got to flirt from a distance with Great Grandpa and Grandma Armbruster. 
Too busy playing and eating for snuggles I guess.

Hope your Easter was as blessed as ours and even though most of the day was surrounded with love and treats from our family it wouldn't be possible if He hadn't risen.

Annalise [My outdoorsy 17 month old]

This sweet girl is almost a year and a half old! Where has the time gone?

While we had capris and short sleeves on just days ago we had to break out the boots and winter jacket again this week. Silly weather. Doesn't it know this little girl wants to spend 99% of her time outside?

As you can see, we've got an acrobat on our hands who can no longer be trusted around certain things unsupervised. She can even scale the couch without incident now.

She's even taken and interest in doing somersaults.

And just look at last summers tennis shoes compared to this one! Doesn't seem like that's possible.

While we're still waiting on the weather to cooperate, mommy and Annalise did the daunting task of sorting through all the spring and summer clothes yesterday. It was NOT fun. Well, maybe a little because I forgot about all the cute clothes she's received but then of course we had to try on e.v.e.r.y. pair of shoe and skirt in the tub. I think those little white legs need some sun, don't you?

I foresee a summer filled with park visits, picnics, and soaking up the warm fresh air. This girl has no fear when it comes to the "side" (slide) or running around with others twice her size.

Mommy better get a new pair of running shoes cause this girl's going to keep me busy!
