Easter Eggs and Cupcakes

After Ladybug's first soccer game of the season was cancelled because of the field being a big mud pit, I got to enjoy a rare Saturday off with my girl.  

We colored Easter eggs! So fun!  Being gentle is very hard for her, but we prevailed with at least a dozen eggs after only one hitting the floor.

Oh yes, she's very proud of those eggs.

During nap time I baked some cupcakes and had them ready for decorating.  We were trying to re-create these bunny cupcakes from Cute Everything.

After it was all said and done, she kept asking if the eggs were dry yet.  So, I asked her if she wanted to eat a cupcake or an egg.

Guess what she picked?  The egg.

And ate every bite.  Silly girl.

Hello Easter Bunny

We made a quick trip to visit the Easter Bunny tonight.  Ladybug was so excited to see her, though I thought when we actually got there she wouldn't go near her.  I was pleasantly surprised to see that she marched up there like a big girl!

Spring Soccer

I stopped by to watch the Tigers practice with Coach Tom tonight.

Yes, T is coaching this team of little bits.

I was impressed with all the drills and activities that he had them do.  But it was also hilarious watching him try to corral a bunch of 4 year olds to kick the ball into the goal.

Her first game is this Saturday, can't wait.

My Girl

Here's a few of my favorite shots from Ladybug's "I'm Four" photo shoot.   

The middle one is my favorite.

Sunny Sunday

Sunday afternoon playtime outside after church.  It was such a pretty day to be outside and very difficult to get this Ladybug back inside for naptime.

Build-A-Bear Adventure

Mimi surprised the girls with a little surprise trip to Build-A-Bear last weekend.  Ladybug loves her new bear and proudly named her Berry... similar to Tigey on Daniel Tiger.  She's slept with her every night since too.  It was a lot of fun! I have always secretly wanted to make a bear for myself there.

Colorful Birthday Party

We had Ladybug's colorful birthday party today and had hoped that by having it later in March the weather would be sunny and warm.  Instead, it was a little chilly and misty-rainy but the party prevailed and we spent some time outside anyway.  

We played games, bubbles and took turns whacking at a piƱata filled with candy and treats too.

Around Here

I've been getting ready for a little birthday party coming up this Saturday.  Can't wait!

T's been putting together Ladybug's new playhouse in the backyard.

And Buggy has loved playing in the house even though it doesn't have a roof....yet.
