Crazy Hair Day

I am a little discouraged that Nathaniel's new school is not as enthusiastic about school spirit week. (But they do a lot of after school events!) Per Nathaniel, not a lot of students participated. But that didn't stop him from participating everyday of the week.

Kids Will Be Kids

We had a huge snow fall last March and the bigger kids were begging to play in it (poor Eleanor was sick). Well I asked if they wanted to clean Daddy's car instead. Hubby was heading to work anway and I figured why not kill two birds with one stone.

Well, they sure showed me. If they were going to scrape the snow off the car, they will do it in their own way. At one point, Nathaniel was on the hood and doing snow angels on top of the windshield. Oh kids.
Hubs eventually went out there with them. And when they were all finished, Nathaniel and Amelia were rewarded by playing at the park with friends.

Easter 2018

We went to Lusby, MD to spend Easter with my Tita (Dad's sister) and her family this year. I just love spending Easter with family and the kids have been asking me when we are going to visit again. We have a huge family reunion planned this summer and I just can't wait to see everyone.

Nathaniel and Hubs were sick the week before Easter so we missed all the Easter egg hunts. So we decided to have our own instead. I provided the easy to find eggs (mostly for Eleanor) but Uncle Mark hid 12 eggs and the bigger kids certainly had fun looking for those. This was Eleanor's first Easter egg hunt as she was just a baby last year and we were also driving from Georgia back to North Carolina most of the day (for Lads to Leaders conference).
As always, the children used their Easter baskets from Oma. She sends a new one every year and they are always so adorable!

Tita Beng also gave the children Easter baskets and Nathaniel received this Squawk game. They loved playing it there and t…

Happy 4th Birthday!

Happy birthday, princess. You are so loved by many.

Twisted and Tangled 2.0

Eleanor sleeps in her crib for the first half of the evening. Sometime between 2:30 to 3:30am, she wakes up and I move her to our bed. We already know she loves to rub her head side to side, which often results in epic bedhead. But this morning, she woke up with her pajama top all twisted and tangled.

It immediately reminded me of Nathaniel when he was about the same age. He did the exact same thing to his top as well! Amelia didn't quite do the same thing, but she loved unbuttoning her pajama top. And she still does to this day! She easily gets hot so often times, I will find her topless, bottomless or both in the morning.

And this is why I hire a professional photographer every year to take our family photos. One kid is always looking away or making faces. But I am making an effort to document all three of them together no matter how crazy the end result. And that means not solely relaying on my iPhone and actually blogging about them.

Eye Color

-My children have such beautiful eye colors and I believe that statement isn't biased at all! 
-Nathaniel has gorgeous hazel eyes and I am so in love with the green specks. 
-Amelia's amber eyes are like honey and gives me that warm, golden glow feeling. 
-I can't wait to see and photograph Eleanor's eye color once she is able to cooperate. Right now, they look like they are also going to be amber colored like her Ate.
-For those interested in genetics, Dean has blue eyes and I have the typical brown Asian eyes.
