I love this house. I loved it the second I stepped in the front door and knew I just had to have it! This house was made for us. It was the perfect first home for Shay and I as somewhat "newlyweds." We were so proud to own this house. It was even a more perfect place to bring our first baby and second baby home too. It kills me to see their rooms boxed up. It hurts actually. All Mary Selwyn's "firsts" happened here and some of Adeline's too. It is going to be hard to walk away tomorrow and even harder to hand the keys over to the new owners.
When Shay and I returned on Thursday to pack up the remainder of our stuff the first words out of Shay's mouth were, "Man. This is a good looking house. I'd buy it again." This has been a wonderful first house. We were very blessed to be able to make it our first home! The new owners are a young couple and this house will be there first home as well. That excites me because I know it is the most perfect place for a young couple to start their lives. I pray they will love this house as much as I do and it will bring them just as much happiness as it has my family. I will forever cherish the memories of our first home and will miss it dearly! Needless to say I need a Kleenex!

We made Easter Egg Garland and hung it up. The first egg has Mary Selwyn's hand print and the last egg has Adeline's. It really brightens the apartment.
We are no Ace of Cakes but happy with our 2 layer strawberry cake.
All that hard work was worth it...yummmm.
and we dyed some eggs
Daddy dyed some too....
Adeline in her cute lamb ears and cute bunny sweater.....sadly they are both cut out of this picture....oh well. We have been having some fun around here. Happy Easter!!!

These precious girls were scheduled to arrive on March 10th but I guess they ran out of room and decided to make their appearance early. I was extremely sad that they didn't wait for me but I'm even more thankful that everything went well and they are healthy. I enjoyed getting to hold them and kiss their tiny little faces. They are precious. I wanted to put them in my purse and take them home with me but Megan wasn't willing to give them up, not even one. Guess I will just have to love them from afar. I can't wait to see them again.
Now this handsome little man is Andrew Morrison Sanders. He was born on March 2nd and is just as precious as the twins. He has a head full of black hair. Baby Drew is beautiful and looks like his big brother and sister mixed together. He is definitely a Sanders baby and we are very excited he is finally here.
Saturday was a busy day. My niece was having her 2nd birthday party, which I unfortunately couldn't attend because I was hosting two baby showers. So I left Shay and the girls to celebrate Kate's birthday and headed to my showers. My morning shower was for my dear friend from high school Amy. She is having a little boy in April. Then I headed to my afternoon shower in Auburn for my friend Leslie from college. She is having a girl in April, maybe one of the two will be born on my birthday. Both of these girls look way to good for pregnant people, very unfair. The showers were great and they got tons of good stuff.

Leslie and baby Girl, who has yet to be named
This is the wreath I made for Leslie's shower. Her nursery has a bird theme so I was proud of the bird rattle I found for the center of my feather wreath.
Sadly these are the only pictures from Leslie's shower because in the middle of the shower I developed a terrible migraine and had to leave. This is the not fun part of the weekend. I very rarely have migraines. I actually never had them until I had Mary Selwyn. The doctor says they are hormonal migraines that have come about as a result of having children. I haven't really had any since Adeline was two months old until this week. They are awful. My hands and face go numb and my vision gets weird right before the worst headache ever comes on. That of course is usually followed by vomiting. I'm not sure what it is about migraines that make you throw up but that is the worst part. Luckily Brooke lives right around the corner from where the shower was held so I made it to her house and laid on the bathroom floor for a few hours until Shay could come pick me up. How embarrassing right? I am so thankful that Brooke and Tim are the kind of friends that you can just show up at their house and throw up in their toilet. I mean that is what you call best friends. Needless to say it is not the way I would have liked to finish such a fun weekend. Minus the headache it was a great trip. We got to see lots of family and I got to spend time with all my best friends. It was fun but we are glad to be home, being gone for almost a week wears you out for sure.
