We had a pretty great Easter.
I had been stressing out about not having enough money to get the boys the usual stuff for their baskets. I am having a hard time getting adjusted to this new biweekly pay period. I have to say though that I pulled it off and the boys were non the wiser and they were ecstatic about their baskets.
I went Saturday and filled eggs at my mom's so they would be ready to hide over there for the egg hunt. They're getting way too smart for me to try and hide them in the trunk and carry them in with everything else like we've done in the past years. They notice everything!
The boys woke us up around 9 to tell us we needed to go downstairs so they could see what the bunny brought them.
I didn't hide any eggs around the house like I did last year and they remembered. Darn it. I should have thought of hiding the hard boiled eggs.
They seemed to be satisfied with the answer that the egg hunt was at Mammaw's this year, last year my mom had a flood in her basement so we had to do an indoor hunt at our house because of how horrible the weather was.
It was beautiful out this year. It was a really nice day at mom and Floyd's. Yummy food and an all around peaceful day.
Aunt Shannon & Uncle Matt taught the boys how to blind people with plastic and the sun.
The boys had their first play a few weeks ago.
It was all of the kids from Kindergarten and First grade in their school.
They had been practicing some songs for weeks in school in their theater arts class.
Taylor was a weed and Callum was a bunny.
It was so cute and hilarious seeing all the kids singing. The school's sound system was pretty terrible and I had to try so hard to not laugh when the kids that had speaking parts came up to the microphone and got super close to it and did their lines. It was pretty hard to hear what they were saying since it sounded like they were swallowing the microphone. The boys just had singing parts, I think they had a few of the first graders that did the few speaking parts.
The boys were so excited about being in a play and were so proud.
They did a great job and weren't nervous at all about singing in front of a whole gym full of people watching.
The kids all made their "costumes" in class which were little hats to go with what character they were.
I was surprised at the turnout of parents. They really had a full house.
Just my family there were 8 of us there for the boys.
I need to take the time and upload the video we took. It was just too cute.
Callum is the first of the boys to have our very first wiggly tooth.
That tooth was hanging on for dear life for over a week. I was joking around and telling him we were going to tie a string to it and shoot off a rocket with it. He was not amused and said "mommy you'll blow up my tooth!" He told me "it's my deshision"
I guess he finally got tired of it getting stuck forward and pulled it out at school one day last week.
He called me after school and was so excited. He told me it was bleeding a bit at school so he just took a tissue and pulled it out.
They have little rubber bracelets at school that has a little plastic tooth shaped locked to give to the kids so they don't lose it.
He was so proud.
I may have gone a little overboard on the tooth fairy. I had thought of only a dollar and to try and find a gold coin but I had school that night and there was no way he was going to wait for the tooth fairy to the next night. He would have been so disappointed.
I ended up taking money out at the store and couldn't decide if we should give him just a dollar or a five. I ended up giving him a five dollar bill....I figured since it's his first tooth.
I told him the next morning wow, five dollars! that must be special for your first tooth, I can't imagine she pays that everytime!
