fun-filled weekend!

We have had a BUSY but super fun weekend in the Kaundart house!  We spent lots of time with friends and enjoying the gorgeous spring weather.  We really couldn't have asked for a better weekend!

Saturday, we joined in the celebration of Sawyer's first birthday!  It was so fun watching Hannah interact with lots of people she didn't know...she is just so funny sometimes!  We are loving getting to know all the families in our community group and I love that Hannah will have the opportunity to grow up with some amazing friends!  I just know that Hannah and Sawyer will be fun playmates this summer and I can't wait to watch them grow up together!  Thank you, Katie and Andrew for allowing us to share in this special day and hang out with your family!  We look forward to many more play dates and birthdays together! :)
Here's Sawyer checking out the fun farm book from Hannah:
We hope he loves it as much as Hannah does!

The excitement of the party simply wore Hannah out! 
She was asleep in no less than five minutes in the car.



We also made our weekend Walmart journey.  Hannah went shopping with Daddy while I filled the cart with the food products for the week.  Of course, when Hannah and Daddy venture off, I never know what they will come back with.  And she came back with several fun things this trip!  She ended with a new ball and a "noisemaker".  We got lots of laugh from passing customers as Hannah was proudly blowing in her new "toy" and making loud noises!

                               
On Sunday, we played outside in the wonderful sunshine!  Hannah is still getting the hang of summer toys vs. winter toys....


And Sunday night, some of my wonderful friends came over for dinner!  Staci Warlick, a former roommate, is in NWA this week after moving back to Texas from Virginia.  We are all super excited to see her face again and it was wonderful getting to catch up with these amazing girls who mean so much to me!  And Hannah loved all the attention! :)

Needless to say, we are a bit tired from the weekend but are so blessed with so many great friends, new and old!  Jason and I couldn't be happier with where God has placed at this time in our lives.  We are loving getting to know new people and families, catching up with old friends and praising God through it all!

He is risen!

What a fun-filled Easter Sunday!  We spent the day at my parents' house in Bentonville.  My dad grilled his amazing steaks and we played outside all day!  It was so fun to be with family and celebrate our Savior's resurrection together.

Hannah checkin out her Easter basket.  She LOVED the bubble machine and had to play with it immediately!




My little Easter angel :)


Hannah got a new Cozy Coupe from my grandma and grandpa.  She loved riding in it and being pushed around...now if she could just figure out how to push it with her feet, we would be set!


Hunting for Easter eggs was an interesting experience for Hannah.  At first she wanted to take the eggs out of her basket rather than put them in. But she did eventually get the hang of it.

She tired quickly but ended up with a full basket of eggs.  And, of course, needed a little something to drink afterwards.  Searching for eggs is a tough job!

We had a wonderful weekend, full of family time and reflection of what our Savior did for us on the cross thousands of years ago.  Jason and I both have been incredibly humbled by the love that Jesus has for us.  We are SO blessed to be called a son and a daughter of the Most High God.

swings!

Today, my wonderful dad brought over (and helped set up!) the swingset he and my mom bought for Hannah.  Hannah loves being outside and LOVES to swing!  So, needless to say, we were all excited about a new (and first) swingset for our backyard.

Hannah REALLY wanted to help and be in on the action!


But then she found the slide and decided that was more fun than helping :)

And FINALLY.....
all put together so she could play!!!


She really wanted to sit in the "big girl" swing....

but the baby seat will have to do for now.


Thank you MiMi and Daddy Dean for such a fun gift!  We can't wait to spend lots of time outside this spring!  We love you!

sick baby

This week has been a tough week on all of us!  Hannah has been sick and doing a lot of this...
....lots of TV watching, bottle drinking, and cuddling.
(Now I can't complain about the cuddling because I know that will pass quickly but when it's the result of not feeling well, it's still tough on this momma!)

I have felt SO helpless this week.  Hannah just cries from a terrible tummy ache and there isn't a whole lot I can do!  I was almost in tears with her Wednesday evening. However, today, I believe we are FINALLY on the road to recovery!  Hannah and I even spent some time in the beautiful sunshine for some much needed fresh air.



I am SO thankful she is feeling better but we are still praying hard that she feels better more and more each day.
