Easter eggs.. a bit early

We dyed eggs monday. I know its a week early but, I figure my motto for awhile should be "the sooner the better" :) This is one of my favorite things to do every year! Sometimes I wish there were more holidays. Eventhough some can be stressful, I Love the traditions! & since time goes by so fast, and people get so busy, its nice to have particular days to celebrate.

Before we did the egg thing. I sat down and talked to Riley about the real meaning of Easter. :)
He has just been surprising the Heck out of me lately! The things he knows, and says just shock me, and I am so proud of him :)

Did you know, easter eggs come with clothes now!? Hats and scarfs to dress them up! I think its kinda funny.

Mike thought we were nuts putting our fingers into the dye water!
Lol, he is mess-a-phobic.

Riley spend 2 hours decorating his eggs! He took pride in them, and really enjoyed it for the first time.

Mike came home from work today, and hid eggs in the backyard.. aka - the JUNGLE! I took pictures (of course) and Riley ran around the yard looking everywhere for them!. It was so cute to watch him miss a few,

Mike would try and give him hints to where they were like "I think the easter bunny likes to play in the wagon!!" & Riley would laugh and say "No he doesnt" then walk right past it :)

we are going to Sharons on Sunday for an Easter BBQ, and a hunt for the kids. I think they will have a great time!! Hoping its a NICE RELAXING DAY! Drama FREE, but I doubt that will be the case. But, this is the first easter I have been able to attend in over 3 years!, and before that it was another 3 years.
Here is me and my egg in all my "bedrest no makeup glory" Lol :) its ok.. I dont mind, I thought was a horrible picture and mike said. "why do you keep forgetting your 9 months pregnant!?" Lol oh yeah Duh

Went to the Dr's today, it was painful! welcome to weekly checks, barely walking and crying all the way to the car. Nearly done, just a couple more weeks! I can take it!! I hope :)

March showers.. bring April Babies :)

I had a small baby shower a few weeks ago. It was fun :) I wasnt sure I should have one, but I am glad I did. It was so great to see everyone!! I think thats the very best part of birthdays, showers, holidays and just special occations! Getting to see people you only get to see a few times a year because everyone is so busy, and life gets in the way!
My mother in law did a great job decorating and doing most of it. Emily had to go out of town short notice for family.
I didnt get as many pictures as I wanted to. But I had a great time catching up with everyone!
Emily ordered a cake from her friend, it was cute and yummy.

My Aunt D was there, and helped keep Riley entertained! I think he was a bit overwhelmed with so many people there.

He had an awesome time! He loves his motorcycle! He rides it around the house all day.

One day soon.. when I am able to walk again I can take him outside to ride it super fast! & the bubbles! Oh my this kid Loves Loves bubbles!!

It was so cute, My godmother Rose got Riley a best big brother gift! It was so sweet, and he really loved it. as soon as we got home from the party he was fast asleep, about 30 mins later, he popped up and said. "can I take a bath with Gramma Rose's paints now?" he must have been dreaming about them.

We decorated onesies again like at Riley's shower, and they turned out really cute! I love doing it because its like everyone that already loves the baby, puts a bit of their personality into them, and I will keep them forever!

Mike came and helped me get home, and the shower date was perfect timing,... Since a few days later I found out I have a Hernia :( inbetween my upper thigh and tummy on the left side. Its so painful most of the time. If I sit for more then about 30 mins, its unbearable to get up and try to walk around. Work is horrible! I feel so silly crying everytime I walk because it hurts to bad!. The Dr. is moving my c-section up to 37 weeks, which is only 2 weeks away! Im very excited., and worried and a bit overwhelmed. I feel like I still have so much to go to get ready.. But being unable to move normally is making it difficult to accomplish much.
