Riding her beloved pony!
It has been a while since I updated, I know.  Things just keep us busy.  Including this beautiful little girl!  Elizabeth is over 22 months old!  We've starting planning her second birthday party for June 16.  Can't believe she'll be two!  She does amaze us every day.  Every parent probably thinks this, but she is so smart!  She'll repeat everything you say.  It made Marc realize how often he says "here you go," and made me realize how often I say "blah, blah, blah."  The most amazing thing she did the other day was count to four.  Not just repeating but stacking things and counting.  She probably would have gotten farther, but the pile fell down.  We knew she could count to three because she repeats us when we give her a count down to doing something, but she really seems to understand numbers.  Of course the 5 Little Monkey books helped a lot.  I made her monkey and crocodile finger puppets for Easter, which I'm very happy to say she loves.  Right now her favorite things are being outside, Grandma & Grandpa's new calf, her silly cousins, Daddy and Curious George/monkeys.
Marc and I are doing well.  Thankfully the snow has gone and shouldn't return.  Marc worked his tail off last week to get a bunch of junk out for the curbside cleanup with the city so things are neater at home.  Now we just keep plugging away at the basement repair.  I have had lots of fun dental work including a crown and a wisdom tooth pulled.  Work keeps us both very busy.  Can't wait for some vacation time this summer with our little peanut!

We had a wonderful Easter.  The weather was chilly, but thankfully the dress I made for Elizabeth had long sleeves.  I had Thursday and Friday off from work since Daycare was closed so we got to spend extra time together.  We didn't feel like doing the whole egg dying thing.  Our little monkey would just have had too much fun.  We did go to church on Good Friday and Easter Sunday.  I played with the bell choir and cantored so Elizabeth got to see me up front and Marc was in the pew with her.  After the service I got a few pictures and Jenny and Luke arrived for the next service.  It was great to see them, but it was a tough time for them as they were losing Steve's Dad.  Elizabeth was so excited.  She walked around asking where her Luke was. 
After church we went to Grandma & Grandpa Wilson's.  Grandma had an Easter egg hunt ready for her.  She didn't quite get it, but had fun.  Although I think Grandma and Great Aunt Audrey and Great Aunt Bonnie almost had more.  We ate too much and stayed too long, but Elizabeth loves her family, especially her Great Poppa.

"Where's my Luke?
Found him!  Although she doesn't look too happy.

Why does this picture worry me so much?
They look like they are scheming!
