I am way behind on posting this. A couple of weeks ago I brought Ashton for a check up to the dentist and brought Reese for her first visit. I thought it would be a good idea for Reese to watch Ashton first and then give it a go. The dentist told me he would do as much or as little as she allowed. Surprisingly she let them do x-rays, and clean them all the way through! She was awesome, and so was Ashton, right there to encourage his sister the whole time.

Finally I am getting around to posting about Easter. We had a great day! It started off early...7:30 am mass, then the Easter Bunny came while we were at church and filled Easter baskets and hide eggs. After time going through their Easter baskets and playing with their new goodies, we headed over to Nana and Pop Pop's for another egg hunt and then a delicious meal. The Bunny had visited their too, and these kids made out like bandits! It was a great weekend spent with family. Only wish Molly and Grandpa had been there too! (picture overload, and out of order, but you get the idea)
We had a great time on Good Friday over at Mark and Jac's house. Nana, Pop Pop, Mo, Mimi, Cash, Walker, Mark, Jac and all of us were there for some good food and a great time. Mark and Casey took care of the fish, oysters and crawfish...thank you guys for a job well done! Then Mimi and Ashton took care of dying Easter eggs with a little bit of assitance from Cash, Walker, and eventually Reese (she slept through most of it). Eli was there to observe...next year, buddy, next year! Thanks for a Great GOOD Friday!

On Saturday we had Luci and her parents over to decorate Easter cookies. The kids seemed to enjoy eating the icing more than anything. And while they maybe spent ten minutes decorating before they were off just wanting to play, it was a good time. We love hanging out with our friends and everytime she leaves both Ashton and Reese tell me they want Luci to come back soon.

We have a pool. We have children that like to be in the pool. Ashton can swim. I was fortunate to find someone who came to our house and gave him lessons. That person no longer does them so I signed Reese up somewhere else. Nothing against the place. It is wonderful, she is apparently not interested. I had high hopes for her, and still do. We are only two weeks into it and out of the 60 minutes of lessons, 45 minutes have been spent with her crying and screaming "I'm going to die!" I am not making this up. I have no clue where she got this from and by the way, the only 15 minutes that there was not crying was the first 15 minutes in the first lesson, so it has gone downhill since. She still wants to be in our pool and does fine with floaties, but I want her to learn how to save herself, God-forbide anything were to happen. I did capture some pictures before the first lesson of this cute little girl. I am just praying she turns a corner soon!
