March 2015

ANOTHER fun and busy month!!  

*It's so much fun hanging with Owen...I love watching him work in his Pre-k book.  He is eager to learn and can't wait for Kinder!!
*March 4th we stayed at the Great Wolf Lodge for $40!!...more on that HERE!
*The week of March 9th through the 13th was SPRING BREAK!!  It was busy, quick and full of drama!!  Ha!  My friend Haley's husband had to go in for emergency surgery and I hopped into babysitting duty for her kiddos.  Later in the week I worked on B and O's gallery wall.  I also went with Ashlee to put money down on her new home!!  This is a pic of the model home!  It's stunning.  We finished out the week going to see "Cinderella" with Gaga.  It.was.WONDERFUL!!!  I loved it!

*March 17th Breslyn and Finley had Open House at their elementary.  It was crazy packed and loud.  But it was worth it to see all their recent creations. ;)
*Worked out super hard the week of the 16th-20th...sweat city right there!!
*I've begun journaling Bible verses and praise songs in a new book, and am loving how close it brings me to God.  I desperately want a new journaling bible is falling apart but really I just want one because they are beautiful and I would love to draw/write in one.  I don't know if you've seen them, but HERE is an example of a journaling bible.
*March 21st I ran my first 5K!!!!  It was amazing.  SOOO glad my momma was right there by my side!!  MIGHT just be hooked!
*March 25th my sweet FIL had surgery.  He had a tumor in his brain...and the above picture is when the surgeon came out to tell my MIL and Joey that he did, indeed, have cancer.  (We recently received the news that it is a terribly aggressive form of cancer.  He has a huge uphill battle.  But we believe in an AMAZING God...we believe in miracles!!)
*March 28th I participated in my second 5K!!  (I have another post in my drafts to talk about weight loss, fitness, etc....someday I'll hit publish.)
*March 28th was a busy day for us...after the race we went to our favorite little girl's 1st birthday party!!  Camille loved herself some cake!!  I still can't believe she is already 1!!
*We also had another birthday party that afternoon...but on the way there F, B, and O fell asleep.  I almost joined them!  They had a blast at Putt Putt.
*And to round out March--another sweet photo of little man playing quietly in his room.  He still has quiet time everyday...cause mommy needs it.  That's when I read my bible, pray, etc.  I just love his tender sweet little heart. :)

Easter 2015

I'll be the first to admit, it wasn't an easy Easter!!  We  ALL had to be up at church at the crack of dawn, we were snotty (for reals...Sudafed for the win) and very tired.  But we made it through two identical services and then came home to rest.  This picture was post Finn crying over me telling him to put shoes on...trying to get Owen to smile and getting them ALL to look in one direction.  Exhausting!

{Aidan did a pretty good job taking our picture!!}

Around 4 we headed to Grandma's house for the egg hunt and dinner.  The kids crack me up...I put some up pretty high this year- just.for.Aidan. ;)

Girlfriend could NOT keep her britches up!!  

Focused and fast (and shoes on the wrong feet)!!

Grandpa and Uncle Zach stealing begging asking for candy!! 

Our dinner was delish and we ended the day in much better moods...hunting eggs, eating chocolate, playing with family and hanging out at Grandma's house will do that for ya!!

Happy 5th Birthday Owen!!

Not for one second do I feel like you should be 5 years old.  I feel like I just had you...natural birth and all!  Ha!!  But you are 5, and you are just the sweetest little 5 year old ever!!  

You LOVE your family (and pray for them every night), Paw Patrol, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, playing your DS and LEGOs and CHIPS AND QUESO!  You are still very particular about what you eat.  I really hope you grow out of that soon.  :)

You've been talking about Kindergarten and you are very excited to go next fall.  You have been my little buddy this year, and I have just loved having you with me everyday.  I know there will be many tears shed on the first day of Kinder (by ME). :(

I am so proud of you.  You love hard and play hard.  I hope this next year is amazing!!

Hugs and kisses, Momma
