Olivia Grace has a pet or should I say pets! She got her ants in the mail today. There is a little story that goes along with the ants. The instructions were to put the ants in the frig for 15 minutes. This was to "slow" them

down, so that you can put them in their ant farm more easily. So we did and they were a little sluggish when we got them out. Well, the nice Mommy I am, let OG put the ants in their farm. Well as soon as she started to pour them in, they woke up. Ants went everywhere! OG was crying saying that they bit her. I was trying to save as many ants as I could. Well sure enough, OG got bit/stung and I didn't save all the ants. We still have plenty of ants, but we don't have as many as we started with. Olivia Grace may not forget what the ants did to her either. We will see if these make great 1st pets!!

Olivia Grace loves flying her kite with her Daddy. She is really cool when she lays down on the driveway to fly the kite (her Daddy taught her that).

We finished up Easter at Mamaw and Papaw's house. GiGi was staying there so we got to see her too. Olivia Grace had a great day.

We went to our church for Easter. Then we headed to MiMi and Papaw's house for lunch and an Easter egg hunt. Olivia Grace and the boys loved hunting for eggs. They had 3 or 4 egg hunts. Then it was time for the adult egg hunt. We all had a wonderful day!

Olivia Grace woke up Easter morning with some goodies in her Easter basket.

Olivia Grace wanted to dance for her GiGi this weekend. We asked her to hop on one leg. She thought about how to do it, but she couldn't figure out how to hold up her other leg. So she decided to ask her Daddy to hold up her other leg. It was hilarious!

On Saturday Olivia Grace dyed Easter eggs for the first time. She loved putting stickers on the eggs after they had dried.

Today Olivia Grace hosted an Easter party. She invited Anna Kate, Caroline, Blakely, and Meg. The girls had so much fun playing dress-up. They also had a great time hunting eggs. They are really into to it this year. We had a terrific day.

Our wonderful friends, the Greenfield's, came to our house this week. Olivia Grace and Carter Wayne had a blast playing together. Mommy and JoJo had a blast too!

Olivia Grace made bunny ears at the library on Wednesday. She loves to hop like a bunny.

Today we had a neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt. There were tons of kids everywhere. There were 4 different age groups, so all the kids were able to get many many eggs. Olivia Grace got so many eggs. The kids played in the bounce houses and had treats after the hunt. The Easter Story was shared with everyone as the prize eggs were given out. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time.

This weekend we made a speedy trip to Little Rock. We went to see The Kingdom at Geyer Springs on Friday night. GiGi, Jordan, Aunt Ellen, and Uncle Stewart were all in it this year. It was wonderful. Olivia Grace got to play with Jordan on Saturday and we went shopping with GiGi. Then we went to see our friends the Flamings. It was a really quick trip, but we had a great time.

Olivia Grace spent the day with her friends Caroline, Carlee, Blakely, and Lilly. We had lunch at the mall and then spent the rest of our time at the park. The big girls had a great time playing together. They loved the tall slides. Thanks for a great day!

Olivia Grace had an Easter party/egg hunt at Mother's Day Out today. We made Bunny cupcakes to take to the party. Olivia Grace was so excited about the cupcakes. Her Daddy took her to school today and she was afraid that he was going to forget them. She made sure that they got in the car.

MiMi and Papaw brought their new puppy Remmington when they came to our house this weekend. Before they left Olivia Grace wanted to take Remington on a walk (or Remington took OG on a walk). She did really good and never let go!

Olivia Grace decided that she would help her Daddy and Papaw work on the new dining room table. So she got her tools out to help. She is a great helper!

It snowed again last night. We didn't get as much as last time, but we still had a fun time in it. Olivia Grace played outside with her neighborhood friends. Then Caleb and Baby No (Noah) came down for some playtime and lunch. We love the snow, but can't wait for spring!

It was a beautiful weekend in NWA. Olivia Grace and I met Daddy for lunch at the park on Saturday. We had a great picnic (OG was a little distracted about eating). Then we played! Olivia Grace loves to play at the park. She also likes Mommy and Daddy to play too!
