Hippity Hoppity Easter’s on its way! Our lil bunnies are so ready for Easter. Eggs dyed…check, Easter outfits…check, torturous trip to the Easter Bunny…check. Poor Cameron did NOT like the Easter Bunny one bit (see below). Just like his big sister at that age. We dyed eggs today whilst Cam was napping so that “babyzilla” would not destroy the entire experience. He always wants to do whatever big sister is doing and that usually means walking or crawling up and sitting right on top of whatever Kayla is playing with. I can only imagine what it would have looked like had he done that with the 16 cups of dye in front of her. Kayla had fun meticulously dying and glittering each one of her eggs. We can’t wait to watch her find them all tomorrow!
Bedtime is usually a long, drawn-out ordeal. “I need one more huggy”, “I have to go potty”, “I want a cup of milk”, “tell me a story”, followed by 20 random questions and hours of singing to herself in bed. But tonight, she actually asked me to leave! She said, “I want you to leave, I need to go to sleep so the Easter Bunny can come”. That was it, she was out. She’s so excited and I love it. Can she stay like this forever?
Special credit to Kayla and Cameron’s Nonna for these Easter ensembles. Kayla loved her dress and rainbow outfit. She’s worn them both many times already. And let’s just say we’ve got some good bribery material for Cam when he’s older 😉

It’s Halloween times 2 this year!!! How can you not smile looking at these cuties? We let Kayla pick all of the costumes this year. She loves donuts so no surprise she wanted to be her favorite donut…pink frosting with sprinkles. She then deemed Cameron a shark, Daddy a Tiger and Mommy an ice cream cone. It cracks us up every time we put that shark head on Cam. He’s been a great sport too, he wears it as if nothing is on his head. They’ve had so much fun wearing their costumes out for various events. Kayla even wore hers to dance class this weekend where it was a bit hit amongst the teachers and parents as well!
Last year Kayla was fascinated with the white pumpkins at the pumpkin patch but this year it’s the gourds. Her Nonna “had” to buy two gourds at a halloween festival for her. She would not put them down and if another kid pointed at them she made sure to take a step in the opposite direction. What do you even do with those things??? They make her happy, so I guess that’s all that matters.
Although halloween times 2 has also meant work times 2 we wouldn’t have it any other way! Can’t wait to take these two munchkins trick-or-treating soon and watch the joy on Kayla’s face as she hops from house to house. Cam is just along for the ride this year 😉
Yep, she’s back and this time as a big sister! This is Cameron’s debut on WKW, he may not look thrilled but this kid is all about smiles. Kayla adores her little brother (when she’s not trying to startle him awake from a peaceful slumber). I’m going to have to figure out a trick to get them to smile at the same time. Every time one is smiling the other will cough, sneeze, cry or just look away.
Kayla wore her star dress to school today for her 4th of July picnic/parade and got so many compliments. She currently loves anything that sparkles so the glitter stars on the tutu were a big hit. Her sandals were also sparkly silver and for some reason she loves the fact that both straps velcro on each foot.
I’m looking forward to fireworks with friends and family this weekend. For some reason, Kayla wasn’t a fan of them last year (maybe too loud?). I’m hoping she realizes how fun they are this time around.
Happy 4th of July!
Kayla has known she wanted to be Cinderella for Halloween for about 6 months. She’s never wavered in her choice, every time we asked she’d say “Cinderella”. We thought for sure she’d change her mind at some point but decided to take a risk and buy her this costume early. We had taken her to see the new Cinderella film when it came out and she just loved it. She let us know that her costume had to be the version with the butterflies on it like she saw in the movie. Luckily, Disney is up-to-date with merchandise for all their new properties so we scored the dress of her dreams. Kayla is beyond excited to be Cinderella and loves her “glass slippers” that light up as well as her carriage trick-or-treat bag. She can’t wait to go trick-or-treating and get lots of candy and we can’t wait to watch her (and take tons of pictures)!
