sleep deprived

Its 4:00 and this is all i can think of to keep myself from falling asleep. I was fine right after work, we went over to Amy's to play, we always have fun when we go:) Then I tried to nap when the kids did but I think i fell asleep about 1/2 hour before they woke up. Luckily Hubby was home and let me sleep until he had to go back to work. Except for the fact that I could hear the kids whining every two minutes... needless to say I'm dead tired. I'm planning on going to bed when the kids go to bed, 8:00, I only have to make it 4 more hours! I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...

Did i mention that I started back at work yesterday?! Yeah so that why I'm tired, two mornings of getting up at 3:3o. The good thing is that it was kinda fun to go back, I really do like baking bread, and I'm only working 2 days a week. So I'm done until next monday. So if I catch up on sleep tonight I could probably have a normal rest of the week.

On the knitting front I finished L's sweater late on saturday night, just in time so the girls could match on sunday morning. They are a little different, I gave L a butterfly on the back of hers... C has only flowers. No one got to see C's because she slept the whole time we were at church and I just left her in her car seat. It was just easier that way. Thankfully I took these pictures before hand. Oh and we can't forget the big brother of the operation. Him and daddy matched with their blue shirts(only his was light and daddy's was dark, but he didn't seem to mind). This was the best picture I could come up with... I took about 40... Thank the Lord for digital cameras! Most of them L was looking away or touching C's face and a bunch of them G look very un enthused.

After church we went to my parents and the kids found eggs until lunch was ready. They had a blast hunting for the eggs. They also found their baskets, full of candy. Actually it wasn't that much, but I did say the baskets could stay there, at grandma and grandpa's house:) We have enough chocolate at our house.

After their nap we went to it in laws and ate supper there, two big meals in one day... Both were yummy! I'm so thankful that we are close to both sets of grandparents. I love that they are able to see them on a weekly basis. Growing up we would only see our grandparents twice a year if we were lucky. Its great that they are able to have a close connection with them. Grandmas and grandpas ROCK!

On monday it snowed(you can see it if you click on the pictures) it didn't stick, but I believe they are saying some should accumulate toning. That's crazy. April snow?! The month around Christmas we had no snow, but the day after Easter we do?! What is up with the weather? I wish spring would come already.

I liked this on of L. don't mind her messy face. That girl is always dirty. Really she is. I could wipe her off and five minutes later she is a mess again. I think she was playing in the dirt and because she is still in that oral phase (when does that end?!) its on her face and probably some in her tummy too. She loves to swing, G does too!

I had to throw one in of C. Look at her getting so big, holding her head up. Her looks are changing daily. Oh she is feeling much better. Thanks for all of your concerns! She was happy the next day after her shots, that is until I had to take the band aids off... I can't believe she is two months old already, it goes by so fast.

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!

Your children all look so adorable in their church clothes. So sweet, and I love L's bolero too, just so pretty. Glad that you all had a great Easter too, apart from the cold weather. I cant believe how cold it gets over there, we are lucky to get down to about 13 degrees during the day in wintertime.

It was very fun having you over. I love the girls' sweaters. You are such a good mommy, knitting things for your children! And I love the family photo! G. looks so grown up! Such a little man.

Well, I should go now, the kids are playing upstairs and have been too quiet for too long....
