School is really rough right now! I have two pretty intense classes (both online) and I start a new one on Monday (in class). So, I will be taking three at a time for about 4 weeks. UGH.
I'm also planning Amy's bridal shower, and working on that in all of my spare time. Not that I mind, because I am having fun, and because I love my bestest friend. :) Besides, her shower is going to be amazing and it's going to be what she deserves!
Next... holidays! ah! Are there really ten-million holidays per year? Sure does seem like it.
Easter was amazing. It is my favorite holiday, honestly. I love showing praise to God, and this is the holiday that we should do it the most.
Here are some photos from our Easter (These are all unedited, because I just don't have the time! ah!):
My boys in their Easter outfits
Yay for the self-timer! We all look a little sleepy. haha.
Adam digging into his basket. I love the look on his face!
Matthew playing with his new toys. He looks like he isn't quite sure of me. Maybe it's because I follow him around with a camera 24/7?
Adam and his cousin, Josiah. Remember, he is just three week younger than Matt. Look how big this guy is! My poor tiny son.
Andy and Kayleigh. Isn't this just beautiful? I can't wait to play with this photo a little. This was a big day for uncle Andy, because Kayleigh doesn't normally let him this close to her!
Josiah "hunting" for eggs
Thanks for sticking with me, my friends! Hopefully I will be able to make my bloggy rounds soon!
Dawn posted on her blog a meme about her kids' names and I just thought this would be so much fun! So I am playing too!
Adam Frederick: Andy and I decided, about a year into marriage, what names we wanted for our kids. So, Adam's name was picked out for three years before we needed to use it. Andy actually chose the name Adam; we both made a list of names we liked and then we narrowed the list down. Andy had "Adam" on his list and it was one that I liked as well. We chose Adam because of its meaning and strength. Adam means "first man." God's first chosen man. What a privilege for the original Adam, and what a strong Biblical man. And, as we already all know, I was kinda fond of the name Adam Frederick, from the beginning. :)
Frederick is a family name, on Andy's side. Andy actually traced it back 11 generations. The first born son, in Andy's family, is to have this middle name. It's very special and we wouldn't have it any other way. So, Adam is #11 ! :)
Adam's nicknames: Bubba (Andy is "Bubba" to his family, so we just passed that on too)
Matthew Alan: Matthew's name came about in a similar fashion, as Adam's name. After Adam was born we sat down and discussed more boy names. We loved the name Matthew from the start. It means "gift of God." We truly believe that Matthew is a gift. I knew he was a Matthew, the moment I saw him, too, and that sealed the deal. :)
Matthew's middle name is my daddy's middle name! My daddy didn't have any little boys, to pass on the last name, so I thought I would do what I could to pass on a piece of my daddy.
Matthew's Nicknames: Matt, The Littlest Bubba, Little Bear and Adam calls him Little Buddy
And my two favorite photos from the past two weeks:
Adam's new hair. Such a little man.
My big boys, drinking sippies (oh yes, Matthew loves his big boy sippy! Who needs a bottle?), on a Sunday morning...
