Easter 2014

Written Sunday, April 20th
This weekend has been so fun! With the exception of Butch being out of town working, it has been perfect. We have really missed him because now that he is working at home (most of the time) we've really gotten used to him being home- so it really sucks when he has to leave us. He especially hates it during any holiday. Beckham is growing up and becoming so independent, the holidays are becoming more and more fun!

On Good Friday we went to an EGGstravaganza at Beckham's BFF, Jake's house. It was so fun! We had a little lunch, dyed Easter eggs with Koolaid and then the kids hunted for eggs. They all had a blast. Even though Beckham is an only child, and the first grandchild on both sides of the family, he still plays really well with others, which I am so thankful for!

Saturday morning, Yaya, my Mom, came to spend the holiday weekend with us. She is off tomorrow (Monday) and I have to work so she is keeping Beckham. She also wanted to come hang out with us and participate in the Easter festivities. She actually pulled up as Beckham and I were working in the flower beds. I am trying to improve my grey thumb, but that's another post in itself! Saturday afternoon, we all went down to Grami's to dye Easter eggs and just visit. We ended up letting Beckham do the Koolaid eggs and shaving cream eggs (again this year link from last year). Like I said, he is so independent so naturally he wanted to do it all by himself; which consisted of him sitting on the picnic table and literally throwing eggs into the cups. It was hilarious and we all ended up pretty orange/red tinted, but the memories made are priceless! I had already planned to make a little chick footprint for Easter to give to Grami and Yaya but I didn't have a chance before so we ended up making them together Saturday night. They turned out so cute! Saturday was jam packed with fun Easter festivities. I am blessed in so many ways. 1) Beckham...of course, but 2) my Mom and Mother-in-Law get along so well! I mean I have a great mother-in-law but I am glad we can make these memories together with Beckham.

Saturday night was not the best for sleep. Beckham woke up around 1:00am crying and screaming about a big cat. It was weird. I am guessing he has a nightmare. So, I put him in the bed with my Mom and I. Unfortunately, my Mom snores like a grizzly bear so Beckham kept waking up. He finally said, "Yaya snore.....loud!". So, we got on the couch. We both pretty much tossed and turned most of the night and got littler sleep, so he did sleep in a little Sunday morning. Once he woke up and saw that the Easter bunny had left him a basket and hid eggs in the yard he was wide awake. We went through his basket and scoured the yard for eggs, which was so fun because he was really hunting for them!

Then, we all got dressed to go eat lunch at Grami's house. Beckham is such a spoiled good boy that the Easter bunny came to Grami's house too! So, again with the egg hunt. I'm guessing that since this was his third time hunting eggs he was a little over it, plus it felt like 100 degrees outside so we didn't stay out long. After a wonderful lunch, Mom and Beckham took a nap and I finished The Maze Runner (which was so good but had such a cliffhanger...ughh). We spent most of today just eating, and playing with Beckham. It was, with the exception of Butch being gone, a perfect weekend. If only I was off tomorrow it would be realllllly perfect! :D

With all of the superficial Easter festivities of the weekend I still have to reflect on the real reason for the season. He is risen! I am so thankful to believe in a God that loves me more than I deserve, who has plans for me better than I can dream, and sent his son as a sacrifice so I could live. I am so blessed beyond my wildest imagination! I thank God everyday for this beautiful life.

Okay, so it's a good thing that I didn't have updating the blog on my list of new year resolutions because that's been a total fail. Sorry! Here's a bit of an update.

Life has been crazy good, crazy busy, and down right CRAZY lately!

Butch changed jobs so he is no longer working in Alaska! YAY!! He is home pretty much every night- with the exception of occasionally working out of town. But, it's nothing like 3 weeks 23 days in Alaska! Still working/thinking about our future house plans but nothing concrete has happened.

Beckham is growing like crazy and talking up a storm. You can pretty much have a full on conversation with him now and he's not even two! Speaking of him turning two shortly I am in full on party planning mode. I love it! I'm super excited and sad at the same because he is growing up so fast. I posted a couple baby pics last thursday for #tbt and it made me so sad. I mean, not sad-sad but I just can't believe how much he has grown and will continue to grow in the future. It's just going too fast. I am having a bit of baby fever. BUT- I am not planning on getting pregnant again until we are in a bigger house! We literally have no room for us right now, I can't imagine bringing another baby into this small house. So, back to Beckham. I had planned to post an 18 month dr visit update but when we went to the doctor Beckham has a runny nose and a little cough so he couldn't get his shots or anything, so I didn't make a post. Then we had it rescheduled for 3 weeks later and he still had the same cough. I am convinced it was all allergies because he seemed to just come and go and he didn't act like he felt bad. Who knows? So here we are he's now 20 months and we still have no had 18 month shots. I called the nurse and she said it's fine to wait until after flu season to come in, so that's what we are doing now. Beckham is still obsessed with being outside all day-everyday which does not help his allergies but I've come to terms with the fact that he is ALL BOY and the weather is just starting to warm up so I'm sure we will be outside a lot in the next few months!

What else is new? Umm...we got a little puppy! She was free we adopted from Craigslist. Her name is Bella, she is bad and Beckham loves her! Shes chihuahua mixed breed, but she really is sweet- just not potty trained yet and that's driving me a bit crazy.

Also, I took Beckham to his first carnival a few weeks ago. The town we live in has a little festival every March and they always have a little carnival. Beckham was only tall enough to ride one ride but he absolutely loved it!

On top of being a full time Mom, Wife and Teacher, I am also a student in the Grad School so that should tell you why I haven't posted as much as I wanted to lately. Again, my apologies but the blog is just having to sit on the back burner for a while. I do, however, have an A (I'm expecting to keep an A) in my class and I have already registered for two this summer. Yes, I am insane!  I'd rather just get it done now rather than later.

So, I guess that's all I really have to say. We've just been having fun around here nothing too wild going on. We are just living life one day at a time!
