Weekly happenings 4/10-4/16/11

We had a pretty busy and eventful week around our house this week. Last Sunday we did our normal errands for the week along with getting Brad ready to go out of town for a few days this week. Hudson was all smiles as usual this week. He is trying to get some new teeth so he has been a little clingy. We made a stop at Sam's Club and Austin found this super cute new play house. He loved playing in there. Brad and I actually had to take turns staying with him while he played while the other one of us did our shopping. I would love to have this for our little guys. Heck I think the dogs could even use it for a dog house.
After our Sam's trip Austin insited that we go to our Mexican restaurant for chips and cheese. We have also recently started letting him have sprite when we eat out. When the server came to take our order Austin quickly spoke up and ordered "coke (aka sprite) and ice cream".
We also let Hudson check out the crayons for the first time while we were there. He actually made contact with the paper for about 5 seconds before they ended up in his mouth.
Austin has been trying so hard to give up his naps! I would be OK with him not napping if he didn't really need the sleep-but he still does. If he goes without a nap he turns into a grump-o-sourous around 5:30 or 6pm. On Tue. afternoon he fell asleep on the sofa in the playroom with his hand in the popcorn bag.
Hudson has become quite the little daredevil recently. He climbs on everything and thinks he should stand up on it once he gets there.
Austin has started letting Hudson in his room to play some, he has even been letting him play with his beloved "trash trucks".
We finally had some trees planted in our back yard this weekend. Since Brad was out of town some this week for work- Austin was "man of the house" while daddy was gone. So he made sure to water the new trees really good for daddy. He also told me that he was going to "take me on a date some where far away".
Here is my crazy boy standing on something again that is not meant to be stood on.
With Easter coming next weekend we have been doing some fun Easter activities. (I am really wanting to start some family traditions that we can follow for years to come). Here we are starting our Resurrection Eggs-which will teach the boys the true meaning of Easter.
We will be doing the eggs like an Advent and opening one new egg each night for the 12 days leading up to Easter (along with the new egg we will be re-reading and opening the eggs from the nights before).
Here is Hudson wearing Austin's Easter basket on his head like a hat.
And here is Austin wearing the basket as a hat.
