Back in February we transferred our last embryo. It didn't work. So now we are officially done having children! It was an emotional time for me. It is hard preparing yourself for another pregnancy and then never having that pregnancy. But I think I am good now. I feel happy and lucky and content and plenty busy with the three beautiful children I have. The hard part about the whole thing is just not ever really having any control. But at least we have peace knowing we did everything we felt we should and could. It was never really our decision in the first place. It was always God's doing. And when all is said and done, He has blessed me beyond measure.

I love Easter. It always seems to sneak up on me. Not quite as anticipated or celebrated as Christmas but arguably far more important. We will be resurrected. We will live again. This is not the end. We are part of a great, eternal plan. It really is so exciting! Thank you, Jesus, for this gift! Happy Easter!
The celebratory baskets!
This is how all my Easter pictures of the kids turned out. Apparently Jackson stepped on Ivy's toe and she just couldn't recover. Oh well!! That Benny is sure adorable!
Delicious Easter dinner at Grandma and Godad's. Followed by our annual egg hunt. Due to rain we moved it indoor and here we are having a quick Easter devotional with the kids while the eggs are being hid downstairs.
My cute egg hunters!

Oh Spring Break!! How I love Spring Break! It's so nice not having a schedule and having a reason to do some really fun things! We rented a bouncehouse for a few days and set that up by the pool at Grandma and Godads (unfortunately I don't have a single picture of my kids at the pool... rats!) But Monday night we rounded up the group of us and closed down Disney again. Serious, super, duper fun right here. (left Boo at home with a sitter again... that's the way to do it!)
After we recovered from our crazy Disney excursion the kids saw a late matinee of Zootopia. I actually sat this one out - Boo is not the movie going age - but I sent my lucky kids along!
It's not Spring Break without a trip to the beach! And it was the perfect day!
Playdates in our down time.
Turkey hunting was a must!
Our last day of Spring Break was a cold, windy day and our pool plans were ruined. Instead, a quick trip to Walmart (ice cream cones on the way home) for some egg dying supplies was a good alternative. These kids literally decorated eggs for hours. Painting, dying, coloring, stickering, tattooing, etc... We finally had to call it quits because we needed the table for dinner.

I was lucky enough to be able to chaperone Jackson's field trip to Sea World in March. (Thanks mama for watching Boo and Ivy for me!!) We had so much fun!! We had another classmate of his join us and we met up with Heather and Porter and another classmate of theirs and just really enjoyed our day! It's fun getting one on one time with the kids.
