A couple of weeks ago, the three preschool 3 classes were able to perform in chapel. Thomas and I were able to take an hour off of work in the morning to go and watch her and we were so happy we did! Such a sweet little song for all of these adorable kids to sing!
We had a pretty low key Easter since Thomas and Ronnie were slaving away on the construction of Avett's room. On Saturday morning, Addison, Vicki, and I dyed eggs. This was the first time we have done it with Addison and she really enjoyed it! She made glitter eggs, sticker eggs, and eggs that had crayon on them. Fun stuff!! After those were finished the girls went and did a little shopping and while we were out and about, we noticed an Easter Bunny out at one of the shops in Kingsgate. We stopped and let Addy take a picture with him, she was thoroughly delighted!! I made a Easter dinner for everyone on Saturday night, to be in the Easter spirit, but also to show my true appreciation for my in laws coming up and helping us with this large task of redoing the bedroom for our baby boy! We had a great dinner and spent some nice time together. Sunday, Addison woke to find that the Easter bunny had hidden the eggs inside, since there was a chance of rain over the night and morning. The living room was a great place to search for Easter eggs since it had been ransacked with spare bedroom "stuff". She loved hunting, looking in her Easter basket, and we had a quiet day that was ended with the finishing of Avett's room and a little bit of egg (cascarones) smashing in the backyard
There has been lots of work going on construction wise in the Reynolds' house. We started with a bookshelf that was in the spare bedroom. We decided that the black bookshelf that was in Addison's room needed to head over to Avett's room, for a more coherent look and we would take the bigger spare bedroom shelf and put it in Addison's room. Therefore, I started the project of sanding the entire bookshelf and then Thomas and Addison took over with painting it to match Addison's furniture. Addison really enjoyed working with her Daddy on it and helped it put it together when it was finished. We put the bookshelf where the big rocker was in the corner and the room looks so much more spacious! Lots of shelving for her millions of books, as well.
The next project that was done was the "Giant" project. Ronnie and Vicki came up this weekend so that they could work on the task I gave them for Avett's room. They worked their tails off and I am soooo very happy with the outcome of it. They also worked in the kids bathroom to fix up the popcorn ceiling that was starting to peel off. They completely took it down, retextured, and painted it. Overall, it was a huge success and we got everything done that we wanted to. Now it is my turn to do all the work...organizing, trying to figure out where to put all of our crap, and decorating!!
