Easter

Preston had fun dying Easter eggs on Saturday so the Easter bunny could hide them on Sunday.
Easter morning he was so happy to find that the Easter bunny filled his basket!

Tanner was also happy and made his way to his basket all by himself!

Brothers
Ready for his egg hunt!



My darling boys after church




In the late afternoon we headed down to Aaron's Aunt Janice's house for dinner and another hunt. It was so fun to see all these cousins and second cousins running around collecting eggs. Luckily the huge rain storm earlier in the day didn't stop them!





We are so blessed to know that our Savior truly lives and to be able to celebrate His resurrection on Easter Sunday. We look forward to teaching both our boys more about the true meaning of Easter as they get older and always hope to keep the focus on Him.

Snuggle Buddies

I absolutely adore these pictures of my boys snuggling. They already love each other so much and it just melts my heart.

Tanner's First Time Swinging!

This little guy LOVED the swing. I think he liked being a big boy like his brother.

Preston's 3rd Birthday Party!!

We decided to have a small party for Preston at our tiny apartment and just invite nursery friends and immediate family. Preston knew for months that he wanted to have a motorcycle party and it was so fun to come up with ideas for decoration, cake and games. He was absolutely thrilled when the time for his party finally arrived.

The Ring Toss
My favorite was Pin the Preston on the Motorcycle!

Preston was super excited about presents and genuinely loved everything he got.

Especially his scooter from Grandpa and Grandma Carter.

Preston is 3!!!

I cannot believe that my baby boy is 3 years old. The time has flown by and I cannot imagine life without him. He is full of energy and love and makes me so happy to be his mom.
For a special birthday we went to meet Dad for lunch and go to the "motorcycle mall". There is a little arcade inside the mall and he loves riding the motorcycle there. He also got to go on the "horsies round and round" and we put Tanner on the back before the ride began.
Love these two boys

I love how sweet Preston is to his brother. He can make Tanner laugh like no one else can and you can already tell that Tanner adores his big brother. I love when Preston mimics our baby voices when he talks to Tanner.
Later in the day we went up to the river to throw rocks in the water. Preston has such a good arm and can throw the rocks so far. He is very determined and when he couldn't get the rock into the water from the top of the hill he decided to get closer and ventured down the steep hill so he could reach.

Preston might be too smart for his own good. He is already trying to manipulate his mom with words at 3! He talks up a storm and loves to learn new things. Lately he wants to "talk about power lines". He wants to know how everything works. He is obsessed with motorcycles and all things that go. He LOVES riding his scooter that he got for his birthday.
That night we sang and he blew out candles on his cupcake. Earlier in the day I had sang "You've had a Birthday" and when I sang "one year older and wiser too" he stopped me and said, "wiser three cuz I'm three!" Totally makes sense. Our camera ran out of memory so they end cuts out...
