My Little Violinest(s)

Today was violin group lesson...remember those?? Macy enjoys going, and it is fun to watch her play the violin with other children. I am amazed at how well Macy is doing. She LOVES practicing. She practiced on her own this afternoon for a whole hour. She is trying her best to teach Lucy to play a box of macaroni & cheese (wrapped in brown paper with a beautiful illustration of a violin on it and a ruler taped to it). Considering mac & cheese ranks pretty high on Lucy's list of favorite foods, this has become hard for her now that she knows there is a box of it underneath the brown paper. Anyway...after much instruction and pleading from Miss Macy, Lucy decided she was going to participate in group lesson. Macy's teacher is amazingly patient and was very glad for Lucy to join it. She actually did everything the other children did (this is a class of beginners, like Macy). She stood up there right beside Macy as big as you please. I leaned forward in my chair to try to help her at one point, and she took her plastic bow, shook it at me and said "Sit BACK, Mama." She knew all her rhythms and bowed her box violin quite perfectly.

Before the night was over, Lucy gave into temptation...she tore open that box of macaroni & cheese and said "I weady to eat my violin, Mama."

Cookies for School

Macy's school has been having achievement testing this week. One of the teachers ordered cookies for "Yeah, we're finished with achievement tests!" for her class. I like writing on cookies. Jason says I write better with icing than I do with a pen :)

Fishing at the Lake

The girls always get to go fishing on Easter at the lake. Last year, Macy got a princess fishing pole. We should have gotten one for Lucy this year. Maybe the Easter Bunny will bring her one next Easter. Check out the BIG one Lucy caught :) They love fishing, they just don't like the fish.

Willcutt Egg Hunt

Macy and Lucy got to hunt eggs again at the lake.

Did the Easter Bunny Come??

This was the first question out of Macy and Lucy's mouths Easter morning. Lucy has been praying that the Easter Bunny would come see her, bless her heart! Yes...he came!!

Bunny and Lamb cookies

More Easter cookies for Easter afternoon...

Happy Easter!

"This is the day that the Lord hath made. I will rejoice and be glad in it. Oh, this is the day, this is the day that the Lord hath made!"

Working on an Easter Card...

A few attempts at trying to get the perfect Easter picture...

The Easter Egg Hunt

There were over 300 eggs to find! Macy and Lucy had so much fun finding eggs, playing with other children, and eating sugar until their little hearts were content!

Heading to the Easter Egg Hunt

It was finally time to go to our Easter Egg Hunt! Uncle Brent and Aunt Leslie (along with Carson) have an Easter Egg Hunt every year. After a looooong afternoon nap, it was time to go!

Dying Easter Eggs

There is always much anticipation about dying Easter eggs. We had fun!

Lucy has no pennies...

Macy spent the night with Pepe, JisJis, and Bippy last night. Lucy wanted to come home with her Mommy :) While I was getting ready for bed, Lucy was busy dressing up. She came into the bathroom looking just like this digging in a Hello Kitty purse. She said, "Mommy, I have glasses, I have a headband, but I have no pennies."

Lucy on Kite Flying Day

At first, Lucy was more about having her picture taken than about actually flying a kite. It didn't take her too long to get into it though!
