Easter and Griff's 3rd Birthday

We had a wonderful day celebrating our Risen Savior this weekend AND celebrating our little boy who turned three (how is he three already??) on Easter.

For Griff's birthday, we took our friends and family to the Sea Life Aquarium in Grapevine. AMAZING destination for kids and adults alike! We had an awesome surprise with the arrival of Aunt Amy and Uncle Philip, who flew in all the way from Mississippi for the festivities :)

And after a sweet worship service at IBC, we made our way to the Lake House for a delicious meal, egg dying and, of course, a lakeside egg hunt.  What an amazing weekend - filled with the love of good friends, lots of family, and, most importantly, Jesus Christ, who loved us enough to conquer death for us.

Jasper's First Haircut

My little guy got his first official (and much needed) haircut last week. Even though we went to an adorable kids salon, complete with an airplane chair, individual TV playing a cartoon movie, a cup of animal crackers, and a very patient stylist, Jasper was less than thrilled by the process.

For some reason he HATED the little cape they tried to put on him, so we ended up with lots of little baby hairs all over his shirt.

He was good during the actual trimming process, but never really recovered from the trauma of wearing that cape for a few seconds - ha! ha!

In the end, though, I went home with one handsome, happy, slightly hairy eighteen-month-old. A good result in my book!

Don't you love moms who take pictures of their kids crying? It seems so cruel, but I just had to capture the moment. And this was the only way I was getting an "after" shot of his adorable haircut
