One Simple Balloon

My child who plays with nothing for more than 5 minutes most of the time played with this balloon for a solid 45 minutes today. Isn't it always the little things?!? :)

Pure joy!

"I want to watch George now." ~ Hudson

Hudson is very much a routine kid. (Hmm...I wonder where he gets that from!) He has started his own little routine over the past few months. EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING. when he is done eating breakfast, he hops down and says, "I want to watch George now." He then proceeds to get his own George and his Thomas blanket and snuggle up on the couch while he watches Curious George. The kid is seriously a nut about Curious George! We have quite a few recorded (LOVE DVR) so he even gets to continue his little routine on the weekend. I snapped a few pictures this morning so I can remember this cute little routine he created for himself! :)

I asked him to say cheese here...hmm...need to work on that!

A "Showery" Weekend

This past weekend we headed up to Oklahoma for my sister's bridal shower. It rained the ENTIRE weekend, so Hudson was cooped up inside at Paw-Paw & Nana's house. This didn't stop him from having fun though. Nana was wrapping some gifts for Shani Saturday morning and gave Hudson the box full of packing peanuts that the china came in and the child WENT TO TOWN! He had lots of help from Uncle Geoffrey!

Nana, Aunt Shani, and I before heading off to the shower. The boys had to fend for themselves while we were gone. :)
Our family at the shower: Aunt Fern, Dena, Shani, Nana, and Mamaw
When we got home, Hudson was so happy to get some good play time with Aunt Fern and the rest of the family. He actually posed for us here...SHOCKER!

Such a fun, "showery" weekend!

Easter 2010

What a weekend!! Our Easter weekend was busy from start to finish and I think Hudson enjoyed every minute of it! It started on Friday evening when we took him to see the Easter bunny. He was SO EXCITED until he got about 2 feet away from the bunny and he FROZE! Wouldn't. move. a. muscle! After much persuasion, he refused to sit next to the bunny even though he smiled and gave high-fives. So, what should have been a picture of Hudson and the bunny ended up being a family photo. Lovely!
Saturday morning we headed to church for their annual Easter Eggstravaganza. It was so fun this year...Hudson was so much more involved in everything than he was the past two years. It started with the egg hunt and he was a man on a mission...his tongue was even out he was concentrating so hard! :)
After the egg hunt, he jumped around in some bounce houses and then we had a picnic lunch and played around in the lawn for a while.

I think his favorite part might have been when Noni was getting the grass of the blanket from our picnic. The boy was in heaven!
Easter morning he was so excited to find out that the Easter Bunny had filled his Easter basket. He carefully went through it and then asked if he could have a jelly bean for breakfast. Hmm...
We then headed to church to celebrate the true meaning of Easter. I'm not sure if I've ever posted about this before, but every Sunday when we pick Hudson up from Sunday School, he heads straight to get a donut. We started giving him one when he had a hard time being dropped off at Sunday School, but now he hardly looks back when he goes in, but never lets us forget about his donut when he gets out! Here he is posing with his friend Ella and of course eating his donut!
Our family!
After lunch we decided to dye eggs so they could dry while Hudson was napping. Can you tell how sleepy this boy is? We put a big t-shirt on him for egg dying and he kept saying it was like a blanket it was so big...too cute!

Look how weird the purple ones are?!? They look like rocks!
After his nap, he headed out to go on another egg hunt!

Then, probably his FAVORITE part of the weekend...(A little history here...a few weeks ago at playgroup, Amy gave all the boys a kite. Well, Hudson's broke and he has been talking about a kite ever since. So, of course the Easter Bunny brought Hudson a kite and he couldn't wait to fly it!) We walked down to the field near the school at the end of our street to fly his first kite and the child went nuts! He loved EVERY MINUTE OF IT!

We hope you all had a blessed Easter 2010!

Hamming It Up!

Our last playgroup was at a park and sweet Cara was taking pictures of all the kiddos. Well, she got right in front of Hudson to snap a few and he started hamming it up!!!

Thanks Cara for snapping such cute pics!! :)
