On the Hunt for Eggs!!

Easter fun has begun around here!!! Yesterday morning we went to a friend's house and spent the morning decorating eggs! We dyed and colored and enjoyed our time together. Today we met at the park and Sadie Mac had her very first Easter Egg Hunt!! She was funny and didn't seem that impressed. After her second egg, she sat down in the grass and started to peel them. Then her tiny tot friends came over so we could take pics! Sadly, her little Easter Basket is at home in the sandbox, so I made her a home made one last night out of a cracker box and the old school paper weave!! I put a piece of cloth as the handle and it worked just fine!! We had a wonderful time and are so thankful to share holidays and fun with friends here.

Let the Game Begin!!

"Mommy... I found one!"

She's a daddy's girl, for sure.

The Toddler Trio...

The Toddler Trio and one big sis playing "Ring Around the Rosie". This is Sadie Mac's favorite game!

My Favorite Accessory

I recently bought a "ring sling" and Sadie Mac LOVES IT!! (The proof is in the pictures!) She makes me laugh that whenever we are about to go out, she gets the sling and brings it to me! She even gets so comfortable in it she likes to become my little kangaroo in the sling and even falls asleep! Stephen caught this picture from our balcony when I was walking home from the store with my hands full... and she was snoozing! I like to take her wherever I go!! She is how I "dress up"!! [For the record: I hate these pics of me... but they were too cute of little missy to not publish. I know she is all the grandparents want to see anyway!! ;-) ]

What we've been up to...

Well, we have been doing some things here and there and been taking pictures all along the way. So, here are some of our random happenings recently...

Sadie and her friend were the Queens of the Beach with all the beach boys wanting to take their pictures and dote over them!! Oh no... I feel like we have trouble on our hands!

Making an Arabic birthday cake! The first one I've ever made for one of my national friends... she was pleased with it!

Celebrated a good friend's birthday! We enjoyed the day doing hair cuts and Outback Steakhouse! (Happy birthday Janet!)

Home Remedies... I was sick with a bad cough for 3 weeks and crushed almonds with a baby food grinder... made a paste with it and ate it... I think it helped... I feel better now!

Got a hair cut!

Enjoying take out dessert! We are hoping to go back to the sandbox next week so we are taking full advantage of the delivery service here... Oreo Maddness in 15 minutes, and no dirty dishes!!

She is a doll, isn't she?!?

This evening we went to visit some friends and Sadie got to meet them for the first time. They thought she was just as cute as we do... and even wanted her to be their baby doll! Everyone here LOVES blonde hair and so her new little friend wanted to give her a little more, from her own baby doll. We had a great time and are thankful for the friends we have made here. Sadie Mac even got to meet their little baby chick too!!! Hope you enjoy the pics from our visit!

Beach Day...

Today is Thursday, which is kinda like the American Friday... the end of the week!! We decided to cut out early and head down to the little beach by our house. Since the wintery mix ended it's been much warmer weather and we thought we'd enjoy it. We met a really nice family there and practiced our Arabic with them. Sadie Mac loved going down to the water. She and I had a nice little mommy/daughter chat. So fun. We talked about "waves" and when we did, she waved at the sea. Daddy took her down there to dip her toes and a bigger wave came in a got them by surprise! Oh well... it was a fun little family outing anyway.
