We did the usual Easter stuff this year – Church, family dinner, and for the first time an Easter Egg hunt. Annaleigh was so excited to be outside (as usual) that she didn’t notice that there were colorful Easter eggs to find. Once she noticed the eggs she was psyched.

After finding each egg she wanted to stop and eat the snacks that were inside (mostly fruit chews, with a couple of jelly beans and M&Ms). It took a long time to find the six eggs that I put out – maybe next year we’ll try for a dozen!

So if you haven’t heard yet – We are expecting another baby on October 26th! AJ and I were very excited when we found out, of course and we were lucky enough to have AJ’s parents in town when we told our families the good news. We went out to dinner at one of our favorite local places, and before our meals came I changed Annaleigh’s shirt to her “Big Sister” shirt. My mom saw her when she came out and said, “That’s a cute shirt,” but must not have actually read it since she said nothing else after that! Finally Kathy asked what it said and when we stood Annaleigh up, both of our moms figured out what was going on. (Both my dad and John were still clueless until we finally spelled it out). Needless to say, everyone was thrilled!
As a result of this new addition we are desperately in need of a new house – we have only three bedrooms, and AJ’s guitars need a safe place to sleep too, so in addition to a new baby, we will hopefully be moving into a new home as well. We are sure in for a lot of changes this year!
