They're all part of this post!
It has become a Terry Family tradition to watch Nathan's friends from The Street every year when they're in Town, and even at the age of five, he still loves everything Elmo! We imagine he will for quite some time, which is fine by us. We love Elmo too and the Sesame Street videos, iPod Apps and books have a positive educational influence on Nathan. Elmo teaches him his ABCs, how to trace letters, go to the potty, count and so much more.

|talk about coloring book! This would keep anyone busy for a long time.|
Considering the timing of my girlfriend trip, I did zero planning for Valentine's Day, so when I returned home, I had about two days to get it together. Sigh... I needed something creative and quick, so I decided on an optical illusion card. The most challenging aspect of this project was getting Nathan to make a fist that I could later thread a lollipop through. It took a few takes, but we did eventually get something that worked! And, the final product was super cute and easy as pie!

Once Nathan turned five, we knew he could start participating in the Miracle League. A sporting league for persons with special needs. The current session is bowling. We were excited this would be his inaugural sporting event because Daddy is also in a bowling league and this would be something fun just for the two of them.
After a long nap, we enjoyed the company of some friends for a pre-Easter celebration. We colored eggs, made homemade pizzas, decorated Easter cakes and had a visit from the Easter Bunny!!
The best part of the Easter Bunny's visit was, we never told anyone he was coming! Everyone was surprised and those little faces tell confirm that story!
|I love this picture! |
We really need some pictures on that wall!! Yikes.
He has fun with the Easter egg hunt, but once he found the eggs in the great room, he was done. I'm still finding eggs around the house!
