We went and ate lunch at McAlisters Deli. I find it rather ironic the connection we have with this restaurant. Chris and I ate there when we found out Aby was a girl, and we decided on her name there the same day. We also ate there before each childbirth class that we went to. That was only like 2, but still!!! For McKinley we were discussing what we would name her there. I remember Chris thinking that people would see her name and not know if it were a boy or girl name. So we wrote it on a napkin and asked a waitress walking by to tell us which one she thought it was. She said girl ;) So then for this baby we eat there and sat at the same table of when we found out Aby was a girl. Why I can remember that from 7 years ago and not what I ate for breakfast this morning is beyond me!! Today was fun because as we were sitting there in walked Nana and all her friends. So, the girls got to "eat" with her too.
After we ate we went to the appointment. The girls were bouncing off the walls and had to be told numerous times to calm down. Luckily the waiting room wasn't very crowded. It was fun to watch Aby's face as we watched this little one on the screen. Aby's class learned about skeletons around Halloween, so it was kinda fun for her to get to see the backbone and ribs, toes and feet on the screen. Lil' Pea was not very cooperative. Curled up in a ball and didn't want to move. We didn't get a profile picture at all. We ended up with a heart pic, foot pic, and GIRL parts picture!!!
That's right we are having a 3rd precious little girl. Lil' Pea is now Miss Pea. We are so excited. Aby had been wanting a brother all along, but she didn't miss a beat in saying she was excited about a sister.
The afternoon was rather hard. We went to my parents house and of course couldn't tell them anything because we were having Chris' parents and sister over for supper to tell them then. We speaker phoned in my brother and Carrie. We ended up watching Tangled and then Chris took the girls down to the river to take pictures. Finally everyone else got there. We had bought a giant Easter egg and filled it with a little moss and a bright pink butterfly hair clip. We had my mom and Jackie sit on the couch together and then Aby gave them the egg to open together. It was fun to watch their expressions. Everyone was very excited. Then the name game started. We have had our boy name picked out since before Aby, and we had a list of lots of names for girls with about 4 as top runners. We didn't share them though =)
Some special moms hid all the eggs.
They had made their own bunny basket during the week.
Mrs. Hale had planned games for them to play before going back to their classroom. They each got a partner for an egg toss.
Then they had a relay race where they had to hop like a bunny with it's carrots.
Here they are opening their Easter baskets.

Both girls really did a great job. Thankfully the tears didn't last too long. Especially when it involved getting a sucker. They also both really enjoyed getting to show off their ears to their Daddies. This is just one more adventure the two buddies get to share together.
