(welcome to anyone coming over from Kate Suzanne Photography!)


The end of March was busy with Easter and a trip to Pennsylvania for the kids and me.  The Easter Bunny made more than one appearance.  He arrived the weekend before Easter at our house so that Daddy could take part in the festivities.  Then the kids and I loaded up the car for the drive to Nana and Pappy’s house to spend Easter weekend with my parents, brothers, and their families.

So here’s my 10 on 10: Easter Edition.

We held our third annual “indoor Easter egg hunt”- expanding into the dining room this year with clues in each egg that led to the baskets hidden in the toy chest…

The Easter Bunny treated our little Bunny quite well…

On our way to Pennsylvania we stopped in New Jersey to visit my grandmother, GG to the kids….

And the following day my college bestie came to visit with her children and met Eliza for the first time…

Love how well our children play with each other, even though we see them so rarely...

The day before Easter we participated in the same church egg hunt that my brothers and I went to as kids.   Eliza and her cousin cleaned up in the “2 and Under” age group as there was only one other participant…

Later in the day LP made a new friend at the playground- a special girl friend who he followed around all afternoon even though she knocked him off the seesaw.  He even braved the merry-go-round for her!

And Eliza had her first ride in the swing and LOVED it!

Easter Sunday we tried for a cute shot of the cousins all dressed up….

And snapped one of my brothers and I with all the kids (the coordinating purples were completely unplanned!)

Checking in....

Thought it was time for a little update on the projects we're working on at Casa LeBaron.   In living room news, our fireplace is almost finished!  The new tile has been grouted (no pictures yet) and all we have left to do is seal the grout and install the new fireplace doors.  Then I have to figure out how I want to style the mantel- I usually just throw a bunch of frames and things up there but am not sure if that's the way I want to go right now...  Here's how it's looking (or, here's how it was looking before we grouted the tile): Below is a close up of how we fixed our cabinet doors.  Originally they were oak with horrible brass hardware.  The panels on each door front was cracked and they were U-G-L-Y.  So we popped out the panels, painted the frames, and used my handy dandy glue gun to inset new panels.  The new panels were made from one sheet of radiator screening that we cut to size and sprayed with oil-rubbed bronze spray paint.  We added new handles and…

11 Days, 2 Parties, 6 Cakes, and 600 Miles...

Phew!  The past two weeks have been pretty hectic and LP and I are just starting to recover! 

We started last weekend with a big bbq bash at our house.  We had about 30 people over (about half were under the age of 3- yikes!) and made a ton of food.  Grillmaster Paul smoked 3 racks of ribs, made pulled pork (which he started smoking at 7 a.m.!), grilled chicken wings, and made all of the various rubs and sauces to go with each.  DELICIOUS. 

Unfortunately, I only got one photo of the whole thing:



A few days later it was Paul's birthday so his parents came over to celebrate over a big meal of Paul's favorite pasta dish.  It's a dish he ate while we were on our honeymoon- the restaurant chef was nice enough to send me the recipe so I could recreate the meal for our first anniversary and it has since become the go-to dish for Paul's birthday every year.  Yummy smoked gouda, pancetta, and artichokes tossed with pasta- delicious!



He blew out 9 candles on his cake (I didn't…

Things to Remember: Eliza Rose, Age 3

Today our sweet little Eliza Rose turns three.  Like all moms, I'm sure, it's hard for me to believe that she's already out of toddler-hood and becoming a preschooler.  It seems as though we were just preparing for her to join our family yesterday and now, of course, it's impossible to imagine what life would be like without Eliza around.


Eliza might be the smallest person in our house but she has the largest personality by far.  Shy in public, she's boisterous and energetic at home- running all over, squealing with excitement, bossing everyone around and trying to take charge at all times. 

She's stubborn and sensitive, sweet and sassy, and over the top spicy.  

At three Eliza's favorite things are her brother, her doggies, mermaids, stories, and princesses.   She loves to play tea party, help in the kitchen and go swimming.    Sometimes she says she's "Eliza BaBaron"- other times she's a "puppy doggy" or a "mermaid with a pi…
