2015 easter weekend highlights

I haven’t posted weekly highlights in a couple months – oops! Now that the weather is warmer and we are doing more than just hanging out at home, I will make an effort to get these up more often… as they are the posts I most enjoy looking back on.

We spent the Easter long weekend at my in-laws cabin and it was wonderful. We went for a walk on the beach, painted eggs, ate delicious food, and I watched the Notebook for the first time – when super emotional things happen in a movie there should be a warning… like with violence: ‘warning – this movie contains super intense love that will cause you to sob uncontrollably…‘ but I digress…

Total picture overload (sorrynotsorry) because we had such an amazing time and I was having so much fun playing around with my new 55-200 lens. Here are some of my favorite shots from the weekend ♥

A little late posting our highlights for this week, Cordelia has been teething… so not eating or sleeping, which has made for a very long and exhausting couple days. However; last weekend we did get the house decorated for the holidays and Elfie showed up! He arrived Sunday morning on top of the undecorated tree and a letter for Bobby telling him how much he missed him. Then on Monday he showed up with a North Pole Communicator so Bobby can talk to someone from the North Pole every morning before we head out for the day. So far he’s talked to Santa twice, a reindeer trainer, and a few elves. It’s pretty cute.

We set up 2 trees, a small one on the mantle with all of our breakables, and then the bigger tree with shatterproof ornaments and all the fun kids ones. Hard to believe there are only 19 days until Christmas!

Cordelia also started talking! She says hi, dada, and sort of says hello when she pretends to talk on the phone (she puts it behind her head, it’s pretty cute). She can also sign more, food, and please. Her cuteness makes up for the sleep deprivation.

Happy Friday everyone! Last Friday was Cordelia’s birthday and we gave her her first taste of cake! She didn’t really eat it, but her reaction to it was completely different from her brother who didn’t even want his fingers in it.

Then on Sunday we celebrated Cordelia’s birthday with some family which was really nice. Now that Cordelia stands and walks on her own pretty well, Bobby has started holding her hands and walking around with her – it’s pretty much the cutest thing ever. He picked out a Figaro stuffie to give to her for her birthday and she has been chewing on it ever since.

By the end of the day Cordelia was wiped and asleep instantly, so when we got home I sat with Bobby while he did his homework. It’s so fun watching him learn, and enjoy learning. The rest of the week has been spent with most of us being sick which hasn’t been fun, but it is cold and flu season!
