Stopping to eat more candy...she couldn't get enough

At grandma Tupe's searching for eggs!
All the kids getting ready to hunt!

What a great Easter weekend. Thursday we went to the turned out to be a lot of fun! The weather was perfect, but the fishing wasn't. We didn't catch anything which was a bummer...but we still had fun! Saturday we egg hunted, colored easter eggs, and enjoyed hanging out with the family. Palo seems to really like Easter...she's done nothing but eat candy ALL weekend long. She did a really good job picking up her Easter eggs-at first she was a little confused but caught on pretty quick. I love Easter. It is always amazing to reflect on Christ and remember EVERYTHING He has done for us. How blessed I feel!

Art Project

Palo trying on my shorts...she insisted haha
naked shot, all painted...

Thanks to my neighbor friend, I now have a few fun things to do to keep Palo busy! Painting the shower is our latest...and her daddy decided to step up and paint, too...which resulted in him painting on Palo, and vice versa. Turned out to be pretty fun for the two of them! Here are a few 13 month facts about our little sissy.
-BUSY...inside, outside, always on the go.
-She drinks out of a cup on her own, and eats with a fork or spoon alone (messy but she loves it)
-She now says ICE, TOES, SHOES, PALO, THANK YOU, NO, and a few others I can't remember. She still wishes she could talk and is mumbling ALL the time.
-Loves to be outside, playing in the dirt and eating rocks!
-Her walking is now running.
-She's a copy cat! She likes to do what mom and dad are doing.
-Has a shoe fetish. Is always trying on my shoes, as well as her own.
-Still not sleeping through the night..yes it's killing me:)
Overall she's just growing up WAY too fast. I can't believe how time fly's! We sure love being with Palo and have loved watching her learn and grow!
