Happy Birthday, CC!

Some bunny is 8 today!

On this day eight years ago, CC came into the world and made us parents. Since then, it's been such a pleasure to watch her grow into the wonderful girl she is!

She's smart and a bit sassy. She tests her boundaries and keeps us on our toes! She loves art, writing stories, playing dress up, and having Kidz Bop dance parties in her room. Her favorite foods are sushi and smoked salmon, and her favorite color is (still) pink. She is a die-hard romantic, and her favorite stories are about princesses and love.

Happy birthday, CC! You are so precious!

CC's Birthday Outing

"Mommy, when it's my birthday outing with Miss Alice this year, can we go to a grown-up place and get our nails painted?"

CC asked that question 3 months ago, and Alice and I agreed that it was a great idea. I love when the kids do the planning for us!

Tuesday was the big day. Not only did they get mani-pedis together, but Alice also bought her a nail art set, complete with decals and a dryer. CC was in heaven! 

The icing on the cake -- in CC's mind -- is that she is finally big enough to sit in the built-in booster seat in Alice's Volvo.

It's the first birthday event for CC this year! Brace yourself ... the rest is coming.

Easter Eggs

This year we dyed our Easter eggs using the shaving cream method -- except we did it with whipped cream instead! Even more delicious!

Sweet Pea mixed purple and turquoise; Little Man picked red, white and blue; and CC did green, yellow, and turquoise. 

After rolling them in the whipped cream, we let them rest for about 30 minutes so the colors could set. Then we rinsed them off and -- voila!

The kids mixed up their colors in the whipped cream very thoroughly, so the end result wasn't as "marbled" or as dramatic as it could have been. But the eggs still turned out beautifully, and everyone was very proud.

Our school met its goal for our 2019 fun run, so we get to slime the PE teachers! And guess who was in charge of making the slime? Me. Fortunately I had three good helpers.

Rock Climbing

Over the weekend the kids tried something new, thanks to a friend's birthday party: rock climbing!

I thought the kids might be timid to climb high, even on belay. But it must have made them feel pretty secure, because they climbed like little ninja monkeys.

CC is the only Morrison kid who didn't quite make it up to the top. But her wall was much harder, as she was quick to point out to Sweet Pea and Little Man. And she did very well following the instructions from the instructor on belay.

Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Egg Hunt 2019 is in the books, thanks to the moms' group I'm involved with at our parish. It was awesome! Last year it rained, so the hunt was held in the gym. This year it was cool and cloudy, but dry, thank goodness.

Our three little bunnies were raring to go. 

Then they were off! I'm not joking when I say there were thousands of eggs. "It shouldn't be called an Easter Egg hunt, Mommy," said CC. "The eggs are just there. You just pick them up." Ha! My thoughts exactly.

Success! Now we have more candy than they know what to do with, and enough empty plastic eggs to fill a bathtub.

Doing a community service project -- making sandwiches for a men's shelter! We had a blast and will definitely sign up to do this again.
