Eventful Easter Weekend

We had such a fun Easter weekend. On Saturday Jason's grandma and grandpa Jenks invited everyone over for lunch and an Easter egg hunt for the little kids. The kids had so much fun. Roman was pretty excited to see all the colorful "balls" and then when he discovered there was actually candy in them then he was extatic. His 2 favorite things in one! Here's Jason and Roman with Jason's grandma and grandpa.

Roman LOVES Jason's dad. Duane's so nice that he'll do anything Roman wants him wonder he likes him so much :) So, Roman was glad to have a little help from grandpa when he couldn't reach some of the eggs.

We also did a little egg hunt at our house this morning. Roman knew exactly what the eggs were this time...and that they were full of candy. It was a little chilly out, so I was glad that he actually wore the hat I made him. Yea! Maybe all my hard work wasn't in vain :)

He loved his little football basket. Isn't that cute?

So, of course I had to follow my family tradition of buying Easter clothes with a theme. Obviously this year's theme was green. Jason wasn't too hip on the idea because he thought it was "cheesy" to dress alike. I told him that my dad did it every year, so he finally gave in and swallowed his pride. Anyway, when we got to church I noticed that no one else had a theme for the whole family. A few people had the kids dressed in a theme, but the parents weren't a part of it. Oh well...I'm sure Korbi will do a theme next year, right?

When we got home from church Jason and I hurried and changed out of our clothes so we could go over to his parents' for Easter dinner (which was sooo good). Anyway, Roman usually follows us wherever we go, and after I got dressed I noticed he wasn't in the bedroom with us. I went out the the family room and this was what I saw. Now that he's going to nursery, he's just so exhausted from playing so hard. He stayed asleep at grandma's until I finally woke him up. Anyway, we had a fun and exhausting Easter.

When Roman was born he had tons of hair. He basically needed a haircut as soon as he entered this world and it didn't take me long to give him one. In fact, he was only 3 months old the first time he went to the salon. So, for the first few months I would take him to the salon and have it done. Then my sister-in-law, Elaine taught me how to do it myself, so I bought some clipper and started doing it on my own. Well, the last time he had a haircut was probably around 2 months ago. He was so bad while I was trying to do it. It looked terrible. He was so squirmy and trying to take the clippers out of my was too stressful for me to try to do it again. So, it's been bugging me for a while now because I like his hair really short. He has absolutely NO curl or wave in his hair and he really wouldn't be able to pull off a slightly longer do. So, today I took him into a walk-in salon and $19 later he had a new hair cut. Does anyone else think that $15 for a child's cut is expensive? I thought it was a little steep. Maybe I'm just cheap. Anyway, I had to give her a pretty good tip too because he was so bad. I don't know how she did it. I even had him on my lap and tried to keep him still, but he still managed to move a lot!
OK, so I just have to comment on this picture. Lately Roman has hated getting his picture taken. He'll be all cute and smiley and as soon as I take out the camera he pulls this move. In fact, yesterday I took him to Wal-Mart's picture studio to get his 18 month portraits and he was being so difficult. Everytime she would try to get him to smile he would either put his hand over his face or close his eyes and scrunch his mouth. Luckily we got ONE good shot. He's definitely got a mind of his own.

Knifty Knitting

I haven't blogged in a while...which I'm sure is really disappointing to all my loyal fans out there ;) Anyway, there's a few reasons for my lack of posting. First of all, I really love to nap in my free time. Secondly, I've discovered "The Knifty Knitter". A few months ago I was talking to some of my friends about how it would be fun to learn how to knit. My friend Rischel said that there was this thing called the knifty knitter and it was really easy. Anyway, I have been looking for one and I finally got one last Friday at JoAnne Fabrics. It really is knifty. If I can do it, then anyone can do it. It's not really at all like traditional knitting which is way over my head. You don't use the two needles. I would try to explain it, but it would take me too long. Anyway, I've been knitting like crazy. I made a litttle tiny hat for my girl and some little booties too. They're pretty much done, but I have a few finishing touches. Maybe I'll post a pic when they are finalized...if they're cute enough :) Then I also made this hat for Roman. It's a little big, but I'm sure it will fit him perfectly next winter. By the way, I had to hold him in this picture because he wouldn't keep the hat on long enough for me to take a shot. Hopefully he'll keep it on next winter...probably not. Oh, and he usually does wear pants, but he got them dirty and it was right before bedtime, so I just took them off. Just in case you were wondering :)

Now this is a picture taken of me this eventing at 20.5 weeks. I was hesitant about posting this one because it's kind of weird to have a picture of yourself showing off your big belly, but I always like seeing other peoples' pregnancy you'd better appreciate it.
