We found and enjoyed our Easter Baskets.
We dressed in our new clothes for Church.
We spent the day at the park playing games and hanging with friends.

Tyler Brown is SIX!!!!

Six Years Old!!! It is hard to believe that Tyler is just about to finish Kindergarten. Wow--- he sure has grown up this year. He just amazes me with his reading and writing. He is not only riding his bike without training wheels, but he is to the point of doing tricks on it. He is such a boy, he is loud and full of energy--PURE BOY!
Tyler and I have always had a veryspecial bond--he is and always will be his Mama's boy but this year he has really started to turn in to Daddy's buddy. The second Marshall walks in the door at night Tyler is on him to play catch, wrestle, play tackle, just any kind of contact sport that he can think of to play. Marshall is so good with him and I love that he does this so Emma and I don't have to!=)
We live in a neighborhood full of boys so this year I have watched him really become a typical boy. I am so glad that he has so many friends to play with and just get all that crazy energy out of his system.
We are once again doing swim lessons and I think this is going to be the year that Tyler learns to swim!
I love Tyler's sense of humor. He definitely has his mom and dad's sarcastic streak which will more than likely get him in to some trouble, but he comes by this honestly!
I wish I could hit the pause button and have him just stop getting so big. He is still my cuddle bug and I pray he will always hug and kiss me like he does now (watch the video for his promise).
Happy Happy Birthday Pumpkin Head---you are a very special boy and I love you more than you can even imagine!

Barbie Kim Update

Do you remember me telling you about Barbie Kim? She is the life sized Barbie that Nana gave Emma for Christmas. Emma LOVES Barbie Kim.
Well, about a month or so ago Marshall was helping Emma change Barbie Kim's clothes when he realized that her arm was about to fall off. Emma was devastated. I knew how much mom paid for the doll so I was ticked!
I called Mattel and they informed me that they don't actually make the life sized Barbie but gave me the name of the company that did. I was put in touch with THE NICEST customer service rep ever. I told him the problem and he said he would do everything he could to help me. He asked me to mail the arm to him (thank God I didn't have to mail the entire doll and pay an arm and a leg for shipping-pun intended!).
Guess What?!?! That nice gentleman must have deemed the broken arm a design flaw so they sent us a brand new life size Barbie. Emma named the new one Sarah Gail Brown.=)
So here are the girls (LtoR)
One armed Barbie Kim, Emma, and Sarah Gail Brown.

Baseball Season

Tyler is back in the swing of baseball. His team is the Raptors and he is LOVING playing ball. Marshall is once again helping out by being an Assistant Coach---he is just so good with the kids!
I am sure that there will be many more pictures to follow but here are a few from the start of the season.
Getting the dirt off.
Giving his team a thumbs up.
Cutest catcher ever!

A new look

Emma said she wanted her hair cut short like mine....
Doesn't she look cute?
