Little helpers

Auntie Trish is coming to visit tomorrow, and it's the day before her birthday. So Sam and Sophie helped me bake a birthday cake tonight. They both enjoyed licking the spatula/beaters.

It was the end of a busy day. Sam got his haircut (the second time he didn't cry) and we had Wiggleworms this morning. They both crashed in the "roller coaster" (what Sam calls our new stroller) on the way home from Wiggleworms. I should have left them there. Neither stayed asleep after trying to transfer them to bed/crib for nap.

All tuckered out!

Sophie's first Easter

Some cute pix from Easter Sunday at my sister's house in Aurora. The Easter egg hunt was a highlight for the two kids. Sophie was pretty good at it, as you can see!


(Sophie wearing Easter sweater handknit by my mother 40-plus years ago for me and Amy. Sam wore it last year.)

We also had a phenomenal Easter liturgy at the 10:30 gym Mass--all the best music, plus Fr. Bill and the liturgical dancers.

Sophie had little interest in her basket (containing 1 chocolate bunny, one row of yellow peeps, one rabbit toy and one package of sidewalk chalk). Sam, on the other hand, couldn't stop talking about the chocolate.
