I got her hair out of her face for breakfast (thus the crazy loop), ate, and then afterward we had her try on the swimsuit the Easter Bunny brought her. She felt like hot stuff. This is my favorite diva pose to date. "Mmm hmm. That's what I thought."
We colored eggs on Saturday night.
Headed to church on Sunday...
And we had an Easter egg hunt with friends that evening.
She had to borrow a bigger basket than the one she brought mid-hunt. Fifty-eight eggs is a lot for three little girls. :)
We met Dan, Michelle, and little Jacob there and had such a nice time with them. I should have gotten a picture of them too, but I'm lucky if I remember to pull out the camera at all when we're out and about. It was a beautiful day. Too bad the elephant was MIA.
4. Then, I cut out the six pictures from the calendar (free, thanks to the in-laws), glued them to the boards using the Mod Podge, smoothed it out the best I could, folded the pictures around the sides of the wood, and double layered the Mod Podge on top of the pictures.
5. They dried relatively quickly, and now we just need to put the sawtooth hangers on back. I'm very pleased with them! Now, like any project I do, if you come over and see them, please don't look closely. I tried my best to smooth out the bubbles, but they aren't perfect. However, they were made with love, I figure, and the kid would never notice the difference. And HOORAY for an awesomely cheap project.
I've got a couple more things I want to do in her room, and then I'm done. Then I have to move on to baby boy's room. I've got no ideas. If you do, please share.

A performance is not complete without the trusty ABC's. Always a hit with the grandparents:
And our last song is semi frightening. She managed to take a sweet Jason Mraz song that I love to hear her sing and sang it in a demon possessed style. (It cracks me up. If you need something nicer, Peter Cottontail above will have to do. :) )
To conclude, she provided a short dance time afterward where we saw many of Tessa's famous arabesques.
I'm expanding and getting my gut kicked like you wouldn't believe every night. "He gonna be a soccer player; he is."
We are still working on Tessa's new big girl room. We've got it painted green, the curtains up, her bed and bedding in there, her coloring table and chairs painted, the futon that doesn't fit anywhere else, and then I'll be starting on my Mod Podge project for the walls tonight. Pictures will come eventually. Then we've got to figure out what we're going to do with baby boy's room. We came up with an awesome list of theme ideas yesterday that had me laughing so hard I cried. I don't think we should go with any of them.
I didn't post any jokes for April Fool's Day this year, and truth be told, we were pretty lame for April Fool's Day overall. However, it didn't stop us from laughing at ourselves again from last year's post.
The countdown is getting serious, everyone. Jacob's graduation is NEXT MONTH. Can you believe it? I can.
If I don't get to it later, Happy Easter, everyone. What a beautiful time of year. (Unless it's STILL snowing for those of you in Utah. Blech, and sorry.)
Happy birthday to my little brother.
