Nursery Time

This last Sunday (Easter Sunday) was the twins first visit to nursery.  I can't believe my babies are 18 mos & in nursery already they are still very much more baby like than Phoebs was at 18 mos.  I have to admit I was looking for excuses to not drop them off in their class and keep them with me throughout church, but I felt guilty to do what was right, and it turns out both kiddos loved playing so I guess I will have to grow up and let my baby twiners go to nursery.  
The silver lining to this story for me is that I only have 2 weeks until I get another to hold another cute baby of mine throughout church once again!

Fergy Easter Madess

This year the Fergy Family began to celebrate Easter on Easter eve with our traditional Easter dinner.
After dinner for the first time ever the Fergy Family dyed Easter Eggs.  Phoebe loved this new tradition and within 5 minutes had dyed almost all of her eggs.  While we dyed eggs you may wonder what the twins where doing...eating jelly beans, their favorite Easter activity by far.
I made a special secret egg message for Cory with wax crayon, something he never knew you could do.  After egg dying we  grew a tiny purple bunny Grandma/pa Potts sent us last year in water; Phoebe insisted on checking back on the bunny ALL the time even though it took 72 hrs to grow to its full potential size.
Right before bed we made sure to plant our extra special magic Easter beans.  Phoebe was excited to see what these magic beans would grow this year.
This year the magic Easter beans grew play Ice cream cones in 8 fun colors! 
 In the morning the kids all raced to see the fun magic bean flowers.
Phoebe was really excited to see what the bunny brought her, mainly all princess items. The twins were mainly disappointed that their bunny haul was not all edible.
For breakfast, since we have 1pm church, we had a nice Easter brunch. Cory and I found it all yummy, however the kids made sure to point out that only the fruit was edible.
No Easter could be complete without sporty new Easter outfits so here are our cuties in their new duds. The girls were very photogenic this week so I got a ton of cut pics of them, I wish I could say the same for their uncooperative brother.
After church Grandpa Green, he has no real relation to us except Phoebe adopted him as her grandpa and calls him such, gave each of the kids their own special Easter baskets in a wooden box with candy & real dollar coins ("minnies" (money) as Phoebe calls it).
We had a pretty great Easter this year; Phoebe even memorized the Easter story this year and enjoyed reciting it to us many times, the certain details she chose to remember surprised us &amp I highly recommend you ask for her rendition of it should you chance to see her around. This was by far the best Easter yet!

My Relaxing Nite of Feet & Food & Fun

Last Friday me & a couple of the Fergy Sisters went out for a pampering night of fun. We started by getting manicures & pedicures.  The place we made reservations for forgot to write down the appt so they were way over booked, but luckily they helped us first so we didn't have to wait around for over an hour to start.  They had to rush us a bit, but it still was a nice experience especially with the hot rock message.
Once again I am the only one who never gets French tipped nails. For our fingers we all chose clear polish so no exciting pictures of them.
After our nails were done we ran to Tai Pan where I got a much needed new purse & a free trifle dish.  After my mini shopping spree we went to a new yogurt shop by me called Planet Yogurt.  In spite of the lame name the yogurt was really quite good.  As you walk in they just have a wall of 8+ different flavor yogurts then you proceed to a buffet of 50+ topping you add on yourself at the end you weigh it and pay by the oz.  I was made fun of for all my crazy pregnant random craving toppings.  Can you pick out which cup was mine?
I was nervous that it would be expensive with not knowing how much everything would weigh, but non of us paid over $3.75 for our yummy treat!  The shop even had a comfy couch for us to hangout and chat on. After dinning on our fine delicateness we wrapped it up and dashed on home back to hubbies and babes.
Thanks Julie & Charisse for a fun night!
