Bible Times Marketplace

Eloise had Bible Times Marketplace at pre school today. She and her classmates get to go from station to station participating in activities that they learn about through their bible stories. A few of the activities include going "fishing" with nets, caring for a "flock" of animals, having a kosher meal, and making pottery! I got to see her when she went to the petting zoo. Here are a few snapshots of her and some friends at Bible Times Marketplace!

Western day!

Today is western day at preschool! Petting zoo, cowboy boots, cuties... What fun! Here's Lucie ready to lasso and spend the day with her cowpoke class!

I love the one where her arm is up because she was saying "YEEHAW!" as I snapped the photo.

And of course, who can resist the silly face photo?

Sassy pants

Could this little girl have anymore personality packed into her tiny 3-year-old body? Look at this little poser...

3 Girls, White Dresses and Bluebonnets

Every Texas child has to have their photos taken in the Bluebonnets. And I don't love anything more than pure and simple white in a field of Texas wildflowers! We were lucky enough to have my talented friend, Laura Beltran of Watermelon Photography, take our photos. She called me at lunch and asked if we wanted our photos done that night. It was last minute, but I have learned one thing... Never turn down the opportunity to have Laura take your photos! I am so glad we did it! These are some of my favorite photos of my girls EVER taken!!

Happy Easter

We have had a fabulous (and low key) Easter today! We woke up, looked through our Easter baskets, had waffles, got dressed in our Easter best, hunted for eggs, went to church to celebrate The Resurrection, and came home for a casual, but special Easter lunch!
Our Easter Prayer: "Thank you God for our Church, Pastor David, and most of all that Jesus lives! Please bless this food to give us energy to spread Your Word. Happy Easter!"
Good Morning, Sunshine!!
The girls got Mickey and Minnie Mouse Easter bunnies, because we're going to DISNEY WORLD!!

Eloise hunting for eggs
Lucie had so many they got too heavy and she had to drag her basket....
Look, Mom! I found one! (I'm pretty sure there is a picture of me at about the same age with the same face, holding up a prized egg...)
There's candy in here?!
I wanted to get a pretty Easter photo, but it started raining after church, so this is the best I could get!!
Happy Easter, everyone!

Pre-School Easter Egg Hunt

Eloise and Lucie enjoyed their Easter egg hunt at school! I am a little sad that it was Eloise's last. (I can not lie) I love our pre-school and it is so hard for me to imagine walking through the halls and not seeing Eloise there. I am so thankful the weather couldn't have been more beautiful for the festivities and I loved watching my girls! Lucie Rose after the hunt

Camping Party

"You want a what?!" This is the first thing that came to mind when MY child asked for a camping party. If you know me well, you know I don't camp. I like running water, electricity, mattresses and most importantly AIR CONDITIONING. But, I obliged to a camping THEME. I wasn't about to host an outdoor sleepover for 5-year-olds.
Mark my words. It. Was. The. Best. Theme. Ever! We had s'mores, roasted hot dogs, a nature hunt, feather hair extensions (for the girls,) bug tattoos (for the boys,) a mission project, cake, crafts and tent story time!! Here are the few photos I got to shoot during the party. I was one busy momma!
