Baby Luke

Luke thinks he's a baby these days. Silly boy.

And he's just oh so sweet to Gracie.

Easter in South Carolina

Sorry I've been MIA. We haven't had the Internet for a while and it's been driving me NUTS! I have a lot of catching up to do! I want to start with an Easter post, though, because that's most important.

We went down to Drew's grandparents house in S.C. for Easter...a whooping 4.5 hour drive! With a 2 year old and a 7 week old, that's a looooong drive. However, we made it alive, so it wasn't too bad.

We went to an Easter egg hunt at the grandparent's church on Saturday and there were so many kids there that Luke only got 2 eggs :( But he still got a fun prize and his Great-Granddaddy bought him a Happy Meal, so he was happy. He also colored eggs with Drew's cousins that night, which he thought was awesome. Drew's cousins enjoyed it, too!

On Easter Sunday we went to Drew's grandparent's church again (it was weird not going to our church for Easter) for their service and then when we got home we sent Luke on an egg hunt and gave him his basket, full of candy that Drew and I will end up eating and a Cookie Monster Play-Doh set. Oh, and he got a basket from the great-grandparents, too. What a spoiled little boy!

What does a 2-year-old do while cooped up in a hotel room?

Play with baby sister

Jump into piles of pillows

Watch lots of PBS

Get tossed around in the pool

Look at himself in the mirror (Gotta make sure he's still lookin' good!)

Try on his new swimsuit

Stand in front of the AC. This was his favorite spot because he could also look out the window while his hair blew in the wind of the AC.

Hang out with mommy

Catch up on some reading

Make sure sister is nice and comfortable

Here fishy, fishy, fishy...

Our hotel has an indoor pool and Luke



He loves jumping off the edge to his daddy.

I think it's time for mommy and me swim lessons. Luke's a bit too crazy around the water.

Our New Life in Greensboro, NC

We have been BUSY.

Really. Really. BUSY.

March 20: Gracie's blessing
March 21: My family left
March 23-27: Drew, Gracie, and I went to Greensboro to do some house hunting. Luke stayed at his Pepper grandparent's. We signed with an apartment complex in Greensboro, just 10 mins away from Drew's work and church.
March 28: Movers and packers came and did the ENTIRE townhouse in one day. Craziness.
March 29: My last playgroup with some of my favorite people in Texas
March 31: We started our drive to North Carolina in our little Corolla.
April 1: Second day of driving. BOTH kids were sick. We arrived in Waxhaw, NC that night.
April 3: Drive to Winston-Salem (2 more hours) to our hotel room.
April 4: Drew's first day! Yay!!

We'll be staying in a hotel until the 15th. Then we can get into our apartment. I feel sorry for Luke because he doesn't have lots of toys and the room is small. And Drew is taking the car with him to work every day.

And so starts our new life in North Carolina.
