On Saturday, we went to Coppell to visit my parents. We played in their backyard. Victoria climbed a tree and didn't want to come down. We colored and dyed hard boiled eggs. We ate ham, potatoes, asparagus, and rolls. For dessert Victoria helped me pick out a great carrot cake from Walmart. It was quite nice and relaxing, however, coming home I didn't feel so good. I actually went to bed at 9:30 with a killer headache. I work up at 1 in the morning and remembered that I needed to make sure the Easter bunny was going to come the next morning. I stayed up until 3 cleaning and getting everything ready. (What is with the packaging of toys these days?- it took me 20 minutes to get a Polly Pocket out of its box- no lie.) The girls woke up around 6:30 and I went to bed shortly after seeing them get their Easter baskets. Thanks Jer. When I woke up, I started to get dressed when- blam- I sprained my neck- kind of painful. Then we went over to Grandma Carol and Grandpa Dick's house for their Easter lunch. Jer kept laughing at me, because I couldn't move my head and he kept making refrences to the movie 16 Candles- where Joan Cussack is in a neck brace thing because of her braces. Once again we ate ham, potatoes, asparagus, and rolls. :) Renae made this awesome dessert called dirt. It has brownies, chocolate pudding, whipcream, and heath bar in it. Yum! The kids then had an Easter egg hunt inside (it was too cold outside.) Both Victoria and Bella had a blast. I'll hopefully get to publish some photos soon- my camera broke, but Carol took a couple and will email me some soon.

10 Things About Me

So I was tagged by Patti. Never heard of this before. When I first heard the word tagged, I thought it had something to do with graffiti or a game of chase. But appearently I'm suppose to come up with ten interesting things about me on my blog, then tag 5 other people.

1 I've seen a UFO when I was 10.
2 My middle name is Anne after my grandmother's sister.
3 I really like Hooter's Hot Wings, but the older I get, the more it doesn't quite agree with me.
4 I'm reading a SciFi book/series with my hubby right now called Fire and Ice (it's set to become an HBO series soon.)
5 I love to watch reality shows like American Idol and Ninja Warrior (I use to watch Survivor when I had more free time.)
6 My favorite holiday is Halloween- dressing up, ghost stories, October air, and candy.
7 I've traveled to Europe (mainly staying around Rome) twice and would go back in a heartbeat.
8 I kept my New Years resolution this year- floss everyday.
9 I love to wear and buy lipstick- in college, I was called the Lipstick Queen- when I was having a bad day I would go to the drugstore and buy a new shade of lipstick- less expensive then shopping for new clothes.
10 My favorite movie is Shawshank Redemption- a story of how hope overcomes in the darkest situations.

So now I get to tag some people. I tag Julie, Anne, Kristi, Chris, and Patty.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

This weekend we went to a St. Patty's Day parade with Victoria's favorite person Nico and his clan. It was so much fun! We ate and drank (wink) and yelled and danced and caught tons of beads. This is a must from now on. The kids and parents enjoyed it. Plus we all looked so good in green.

My Laugh Comes From Momma

Coolest thought for the day- I was listening to Victoria tell me a story about her Easter basket. And I said, "Isn't that one Bella's. Didn't you have the yellow one and she has the pink one?" She starts laughing hard for about 30 seconds and then says, "Oh yeah. I forgot!" Then I start laughing hard. And that's when I realize, we have the same laugh. I wonder if she just picked it up from me? What a cool thought!

OK, I've been forgeting to post some pretty cute things my kiddos have been doing. So here's a summary. A couple of days ago, Victoria was mad at me for not letting her watch her program and she says, "Mommy, I'm so mad at you! I'm going to throw a cucumber at you!" I covered my face and laughed. Then yesterday, Victoria was watching our neighbors cat walk the fence between ours and his houses and she says laughing, "Look at Kaylee balance on the fence." My little two year old used the word balance correctly- I was impressed. Also little Bella is putting two words together. Yesterday we were outside and Bella says, "go inside." Too cool.

Snow Day

It snowed two times this week. The first time was on Sunday night-gorgeous. The next morning the Lunn clan went outside at 6:45 and played in 1 inch of snow in 50 degree weather- it all melted by 9:00. Bella nd Victoria enjoyed eating the snow. When I wanted to go inside, they wanted to keep playing. So I let them. I grabbed a cup of coffee and watched them from my back window. They played for another 10 minutes. Victoria kept feeding Bella snow. Then yesterday, Thursday, the snow really came down. We received 4 inches of the white stuff. It was really coming down- in fistfuls! I went outside with the girls, after bundleing them up to the max. We built a snowman, but couldn't finish putting on the final touches because Bella was unhappy and crying. Her little feet just refused to walk on the snow. She was falling all over the place, and it was a lot colder than she liked. So we went inside. When Jer came home, he took Victoria outside again and they built another snowman- of coarse bigger- he had to rub it in. We made hot chocolate and a fire later that night. This morning we're just hanging around in our fuzzy PJ's. It's so pretty to look at the snow in the back yard, however, the snow on the street is already melted and I have a feeling later this day, we might have to have a funeral for Mr. and Mrs. Snowman.
