Here comes Peter Cotton Tail.....hopping through the Collins Home! Crazy that this is the kiddos second Easter! 

Last year:

This year:
(They actually loved the bunnies and were laughing but would frown every time they we're asked to look up away from the bunnies!)

The bunny rolled through the house for Easter

The kids got a wagon, some side walk chalk, books, little people (princesses for K and superheroes for A) and bunny ears this year. I wasn't sure if they'd be into looking for eggs so we "hid" (aka placed in the middle of the floor) a few eggs each. Well on Easter morning they followed their egg trail to their baskets

They instantly started the game of throw everything we can find into this red thing. When they ran out of objects we popped them in and gave them a ride....that ended up lasting an hour going back and forth in the house (I guess you could say the wagon was a hit lol). Of course they did decide that it was even more fun if one of them pushed the other

Then we got them all dressed in their Eastser best to show off for Grandma and Grandpa since we were lucky enough for them to spend the morning with us. 
(And the wagon rides continued)

It was a wonderful Easter! We finished it off with a mini feast cooked by me and Rice Krispie treats!

What a great day and so happy we got to celebrate with my parents! :) 

Children's Museum

Made it to the Children's Museum last wknd when my parents were here. The kids loved it. They walked freely, did the slides, went through tunnels, and had just a blast in general. A few of my fav pics:

In the tunnel with Grandma

Went through the cave now ready for the slide

Face first is the only way to go

St Patricks Day

We are on to celebrating second holidays!!! Little throwback to St Pattys day last year:

And now this year:

I will say it was easier last year to get a picture of them together. It is not an option for both of them to sit still, at the same time, and heaven forbid look at a camera!!! On the other hand this year Mommy didn't drop the ball on St Pattys outfits. Last year I thought it was silly and a waste of money (that must have been sleep deprivation talking as on actual st Pattys day I regretted not having outfits and couldn't find any last minute) so Kylie had to wear one of Alex's shirts (the bad think about an entirely pink and adorable wardrobe!). Well this year I was doing it right!

Alex got a cute vest and tie on his shirt:
(Such a cheeser!)

Kylie got the foofoo poofy tutu with shamrocks (why don't they have this in adult size??) :
This was her pointing at me (and based on the tone of her voice possibly telling me off) for putting a bow in her hair

Mommy Alex selfie!

Just playin by the window

Attempt to get them together

"If your happy and you know it clap your hands" (or yell at the top of your lungs)

Someone was loving the attention this morning.....and her big skirt!

Happy St Pattys Day!!
