Easter 2010

We had a very busy Easter weekend. Lots of egg hunting, candy eating, and great worship!!

Friday was the class egg hunt. My sister got to come to Kensley's class, which a great treat for Kensley.

Kennedy had her first egg dying experience. The egg lost the battle!

Big Daddy in some grilling action. Our old grill bite the dust, so we had to get a new one. Cabe is in Egg Head heaven!

Easter bunny goodies

All the yummy desserts! I made the candy nests, and I have to say this was the first Paula recipe I have tried where I liked my original better. She called for butter crisco instead of butter for the rice krispies. Never try that, it was awful! The key lime pie was so good! My sister said it took forever, but the work paid off. And my Mom's lemon cake, this is one of my all time favorite desserts.

Klay and my nephew Carson swapping eggs. They were so funny they didn't realize the money ones were the good ones!

I didn't get a group shot of our family in our Easter outfits. I had big plans, we all matched, but Klay and sidewalk chalk had other plans. Our cute church clothes didn't last long. And no Kensley didn't wear those flip flops with her dress. Luckily her cousin has big feet so she could borrow some play shoes.

Kennedy LOVED hunting eggs! She liked it even more when she realized they were filled with chocolate.

We went to the Saturday night worship service at our church, it was so amazing I could of gone back the next day. It was a great Easter weekend and we are so blessed that "He is risen!"

Why Blog?

This was Kelly's post title and for me, this is SO appropriate. I know my family and friends that still check every once in a while (Linz-sis) are wondering why I even blog.

I may not be a faithful blogger, maybe not even update once a month, but I have precious kids and love to share what they have been up to.

I took Klay out yesterday to get some pictures of him. He did awesome!!! He loved that all the attention was on him, and didn't have the other kids around to mess with him. Its hard being the only boy! And this little man is definitely a ladies man! It is scary, I can just picture him at sixteen smooth talking some girls. Yes I'm already praying big time for this one. Ha!

Tooth Fairy

I know its really random that the first post I blog in three months is about the "Tooth Fairy", but the pictures were easily accessible and why not she is precious!
Soon to come will be baby "Kwinny's" 1st Birthday pics(yes it did take place in November) but who's counting. Kensley actually lost her first tooth the night of Kennedy's party. Then lost her second the next night. It was busy around the Soffos house!

Look at my baby girl all grown up and losing her 1st tooth! Yes I bawled like a baby that night.

So proud and checking out her new grill while going to bed.

Night number two!

Funny thing happens when you are a parent, you can hear a really funny story from someone and think "ha" that's funny but never think it will relate to your life. Well as I've learned from being a parent, ANYTHING can happen! Last year at our church women event a great speaker Priscilla Shier(which I'm now doing her bible study this semester and LOVE it!) spoke about how her son lost a tooth and her husband the "Tooth Fairy" gave him a $20! She was like what!?! And he proceeded to tell her that when all the grandparents gave the child money for their birthday he hid it and then gave it has tooth fairy money. I cracked up at that and even shared it with several people thinking it was too cute. Well Kensley finally pulling her tooth was not on my agenda so of course why would I have cash on me, I always use debit. So I have to confess that our tooth fairy was Kenendy's birthday money she had gotten that day at her party. Yes I know horrible taking from a little one on her 1st birthday, but I did pay her back. She had with drawls two nights in a row! Haha!

Kensley thought it was the neatest thing waking up the next morning and seeing the tooth fairy had been there and left her $5.00. We decided on this, like all other things inflation has taken over and lets face it kids get more these days. We thought that was fair enough. Although she did let us pull the other tooth the next day in hopes the tooth fairy left a DS game :). We thought we had done good until Nana and Mimi come over and give the kid 20 bucks for losing a tooth. Really!?!

We didn't get to enjoy her toothless grin for long, her other ones had already come in behind those so it was a must that she lose them. Now everyday she asks me if I think they are straightening out because she doesn't want braces. Oh to be a 6 year old!
